    Default Help Identifying Aftershave/Cologne

    Hello,

    I was in France a few years ago and I got a whiff of a man who was wearing a great scent, I have tried to identify it since but have not succeeded.

    It had a very distinct and strong peppery smell,

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    It is like you are asking us to identify the father of a baby, by showing us a photograph of the baby's foot.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Yes I appreciate that I have not given you much to work with.

    All I can add is that, it is definitely for men only and it was very very strong smelling.
    I will attempt to describe it although this is new terrority for me; perhaps black pepper and ciggerette smoke and it seemed perhaps that it came from southern Europe or North Africa.

    Thanks

    Maybe it was the original Azzaro (1978.) The anise could have given it it's peppery vibe. This is my wife's 2nd favorite on me, and she describes it as both peppery & smokey.

    Also, it is rather popular in Europe in general. But then again, many fragrances are...

    Céline PH has a prominent black pepper accord. Its very similar in style to the "Black Pepper Bodywash" by Molton Brown.

    Could it be Pomegranate Noir? Very strong resemblance to pepper during the midnotes.

    lots of fragrances have pepper to add spice or open up the senses, but mostly it is hard to notice as pepper when just casually smelling it. two that come to mind that are exceptions to the hidden pepper rule are:

    navegar by l'artisan parfumer, and
    piper nigrum by lorenzo villoresi. both nice with strong pepper notes.

    I agree, this is really tough.

    I used to wear Cacharel pour Homme because that has very peppery notes - which are particularly noticable on hot days.

    We've no idea how long the person in question had been wearing the scent which doesn't help either.

    If you get Guerlain Vetiver on a hot day that has tremendous longevity and can also smell very peppery too.

    Anybody's guess, really, but mine wolud be:
    Trumper's Eucris (very dry, strong peppery note) or Charro by El Charro, a very pronounced pepper among spices.

    I think you were smelling guerlain vetiver.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I have tried Piper Nigrum, it is getting close but it is not as strong as what I smelt.

    So, is there anything that is similar to Piper Nigrum, but with more pepper?

    Thanks
