    Default Fragrances with a noticeable Pepper note

    I have been enjoying some fragrances with spicy pepper notes. My favorite right now is New York by Parfums de Nicolai. What are your favorite fragrances with a very noticeable to strong pepper note. Thanks.

    I was told by another BN'er this smelled of pepper to him. It is a very tangy vetiver, actually, and very engaging.

    Definitely Poivre Samarcande - one of the better peppers out there.

    I get a lot of pepper in Ormonde Jayne's Isfarkand.

    And of course there's LV Piper Nigrum (literally, "Black Pepper").

    My favorite is Poivre Samarcande, too but I didn't know it was widely available. I got mine when it was sold separately from the special set of smaller sprays from a few years ago. (Ebay, I think). So, it comes in a regular sized bottle, now? That's the one I would recommend.

    Ralph Lauren - Polo Sport Extreme

    One of my first blind buy after joining basenotes. I think it's discontinued now, but well worth it IMHO. Pepper overload for sure, but it's done quite nicely. The only masculine Ralph Lauren fragrance which deserves the word Sport!

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I routinely overload my food with black pepper, but I'm not a big fan of it in fragrances.

    Penhaligon's Opus 1870 (a little less pepper and this'd be in my drobe)
    Polo Sport Extreme

    And some more where it's less upfront:
    Frank LA (like mugler + pepper)
    Selection Verte (white peppercorn)
    Prelude to Love (pink peppercorn)
    Eav Des Bavx (red peppercorn)

    I love pepper scents and I have smelled almost all of the recommendations above.

    I'll add one that hasn't been posted. Scent Two: Laurel by Monocle x Comme des Garcons. Yes, it's primarily a laurel fragrance, but it has a boatload of pepper in it.
