    Default Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs

    Now Smell This reports:

    Marc Jacobs will launch Bang Bang in August. The new fragrance for men is a flanker to last year’s Bang, and is described as a “refreshing citrus twist on the original”.

    The notes feature lemon, sandalwood and cashmere musks.




    I'm not sure what to think of this - I sort of hate the name, love the color of the bottle - but overall think the concept sounds silly, immature and pointless.

    Thanks, mike.

    I'm not sure I want to see Rick James sweaty and shirtless, with a factice clutched between his thighs. Certainly not in his present condition.

    I must say, it is cool in blue. Sounds a bit meh, though.

    When I first saw the thread title, I thought it would be the EdP / Intense version the original sorely needs. An even lighter version is laughable.

    I wonder if the Bang and Bang Bang bottles are "spoonable". Just wondering, because my damned Bang bottle is always falling over if I just look at it the wrong way. Maybe if you put them...eh... together, they'll stand up better.

    Anyway, thanks for the info. I love Bang so I'll probably buy this I'm sure. If anything, I wished they'd have made an EDP rather than a Fraicheur type flanker.

    Diamondflame you beat me to it! But, they could still use Gang Bang if they ultimately do an EDP for Bang.

    I like the original fragrance but I think I'll struggle to go out saying I am wearing Bang Bang.

    Double-tap shot to our olfactory senses? I like Bang and, if well executed, the right citrus could add more zing to Bang's nasal punch.

    That's what I'd hoped. Somthing similar to opus 1470.

    I love Bang. Not sure about this, but I'll try it if I see it.

    My hypothesis: The original didn't sell, so they had to swoop in with a boring, generic flanker to recoup the losses.

    I love Bang, so does my wife, and this sounds interesting to me! I'll check it out at the very least. Bang is a unique scent in my collection and one that relaxes me.

    I'm pretty sure it sold well and it also won a bunch of FiFi awards.

    I tend to believe that it's a commercial flop, has anyone ever smelled someone wearing it? I never have.
    The disparity between the fragrance itself and the packaging is too glaring. The originality and sophistication of the juice is up there with recent designer classics like Dior Homme, but the packaging is strictly Hello Kitty.
