    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.

    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.

    There is a peppery quality to Blenheim Bouquet which gives it its austerity I think. Very finely done I feel.

    +1 for Polo Sport Extreme -- not a typical "sport" cologne!

    Also, Molton Brown - Black Pepper, which is about as "pure" a black pepper scent as you'll find -- it was way too much for me!

    Definitely agree with Piper Nigrum and Molton Brown Black Pepper. I've never thought of Tommy Bahama as peppery, but I really like it. Maybe if I spray some on with that note in mind, I'll notice it.

    When I'm not imbibing in Joseph Abboud, I concoct my own gourmand style pepper dominant scents by letting a thin layering of butter and cajun sauce dry on my naked skin. Once dried, I'll crush white and black pepper together in a bowl and mix it with an unscented body lotion.

    I may or may not add a dash of cocoa and a spritz of patchouli for more gourmand-ish gravity. I have never received a compliment wearing this creation and have ( By accident) gotten some cajun on my pee pee....which was a real hurt piece.

    Yes! Azzaro Visit. I still remember the time when it came out. I think it's underrated.

    You should try the shower gel of Molton Brown Black Pepper, it is sweetened slightly and smells fantastic (and much milder)
