Wearing Lorenzo Villorezi's Piper Nigrum for the first time in open waters, as 'twere--a generous sample from MadScientist. And the demons of suggestion are swarming. All it takes is one moment in which you fix on the celery note in Yatagan, for instance, for a snarling celery plant to root itself immovably atop the bottle, sucking up every other impression and flexing its fingers heavenward while sort of flapping at the shoulders and elbows in that creepy demon way that we hate. A lovely fragrance is lost to you.
Piper Nigrum smells like wild fennel on a California hillside. It does not smell like mint gum, it does not smell like mint gum, it does not....
