    Default Marc jacobs bang

    Hey guys,

    Did some searching on the site and i see that there are some threads on this item but more around its release date. I wanted to get some updated feed back from owners of this product or people that gave it multiple wearings. What is your take on it? I always passed it up thinking it wasn't worth testing, however received a sample from my SA and i'm actually liking it. Only did a small sample spray on the forearm but very smooth masculine feel to it. I'm 30minutes into it and it i'm really digging this smell.

    So lets here others comments? Longevity? sillage? Feedback from other, yeild compliments ?

    Thanks guys, i'm loving this board and really getting into this new love for fragrances.

    I bought it, and like it well. Key is to sample on skin, too many people sample on a card and it smells like raw scented meat.

    haha you remind me of me when i first started. its definitely a great board and a fun hobby.

    i inititally dismissed this one at first, because i didnt give it a chance on my skin because i hated the initial spray. too much pepper. but seeing how i hated the initial spray on paper of gucci pour homme 1 and now its one of my favorites, i might give bang another try on my skin


    btw, im persian too. represent!

    All pepper out of the gate, then seemingly disappears after about an hour. Not for me.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    Yea, thats my only concern at this point is longevity. I know its not going to be one to projection monster, but I do like my scents to last. I read in another thread how in the dry down of Bang they get a very similiar vibe to Terre Hermes and I can see it. Very similiar vibe.

    I'd love to hear comments people have received from Bang?

    i tried it and own it as a shower gel, it is ok as that.
    I would not purchase the scent itself, because I think that there are no quality ingredients used in it.
    Lately I have been looking for scents that last longer and have nice drydown (no metallic smell).

    Bang is made by Coty, a brand that specializes in celebrity fragrances, which says much about the quality of Bang by Marc Jacobs.
    -pass

    bang smells like freshly ground pepper and a hint of pine and incense (for those who haven't been able to test it yet)

    I found the longevity and drydown to be a bit poor. I liked the initial notes-- and there is something that reminds me of hot buttered biscuits... but it seems to disappear quickly. This scent was a disappointment for me.

    I like it too. Longevity is average. I agree with the similarity to Terre D'Hermes drydown, without the orange peel note.

    Sampled a few months back at the local Macys... to me, I've been enjoying that scent already in the form of Gucci PH I.

    ALL day? You're the first person to have this experience. I can still smell it on my arm but thats if i press my nose against my forearm. to me i wonder if thats really still being there? its soo close to the skin i can't even smell it nor anyone close to me.

    Not massively strongly but I can still smell a close spicy type of smell by evening time and so can people close enough to hug me. It's my personal favourite at the moment. Btw i'm half Iranian too!

    Very cool man. I believe Johnny19 mentioned he was persian as well.

    I am going to try it again today and give it a full wearing but over apply a bit to see if that gives it more longevity. I'll go 4-5 sprays which for most may not really be over applying but I'm a bit hesistant to go too much since i'm on the way to work. I'll keep you guys posted.

    I get good longevity from Bang. Very nice pepper frag. No complaints. Perhaps it is more suited to our warm and humid climate here.

    The smell is nice enough, but it has zero sillage and terrible longevity.

    Default Re: Marc jacobs bang

    I can't believe that people are complaining about Bang's longevity when all we hear about is bloody Aventus which is so fleeting it's almost over before its started.

    I get about 6 to 8 hours out of of Bang, it's by no means a powerhouse by any stretch of the imagination but drys down to a really quite lovely soft fragrance in the latter stages. I like it. No so keen on the bottle though...
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    Aventus is still very much present 6-10 hours after I use it. Bang is a "nose pressed up against skin" smell after one hour.

    I usually take perfumes reviews with a grain of salt because perfume opinion is so subective. There are so many variables like personal taste, perception and general awareness of ingredients (some people have never smelt pure musk/ambre for example).

    Anyways, as most of have said and I agree. Starts out nice and peppery, just the right amount of pepper but then almost an hour later nothing. Its as if the perfume evaporated of off my skin. Reminded me of Opus 1870 which lasts longer.

    i'm at 8hrs now and still smelling it, yes its close to the skin but its there and really enjoying it. It really reminds me of Terre Hermes but without the Orange peel smell which i don't care for too much. For anyone looking for an a possible alternative this may be an option. Not saying its as high of quality as TH but similary earthy, skin scent type of smell.

    Im not a fan, I enjoy spicy frags(MR)but Bang makes me wince and my nose runs. Each to his own though.

    It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

    Well ok if I bring my arm up and sniff it, its there. But doing normal body movements like for example bringing my arm up to the steering wheel does not give me a wift like I would get from other perfumes.
