    Thumbs up What's your favorite Pepper Fragrance

    Alright guys, I actually really like Marc Jacobs Bang! and recently tried Burberry The Beat only to be disappointed by it's lack of pepper after what I've heard about it. Anyone have some good alternatives that may be of better quality (this includes better longevity) but very similar to bang? I don't think I can afford something like Hermessence Poivre Samarcande but I'm still open to niche suggestions that are a little more modestly priced.

    Thanks

    You should try Molton Brown Black Pepper EDT; they also do a shower gel/body wash - use the two together for excellent results!

    Actually, Molton Brown's pepper offerings are pretty good.

    sup volley2 talked to you a little bit in hiro's blogtv cast a few days ago. Thanks for the suggestions. Poivre Samarcande is a little out of my price range and I heard it doesn't really project or last that long to persuade me to buy it. Definitely gonna try out piper nigrum though

    Hi JBarry! What's up!??!? You're right. Poivre Samarcande doesn't project much and doesn't last long. Good though. Piper Nigrum is black pepper all the way. Projects more than PS and last longer.

    Might as well check out Bang! by Marc Jacobs.

    I thought it was Piper Nigrum, which is a wonderful anise-tinged pepper frag. Then i got a sample of Shams by Memo: Amber Sultan laced with potent black pepper, so that is it for me, so far.

    On days when i need low-key pepper, Eau de L'Occitan is great.

    This man speaks the truth! This is the best (and hardest to find) one, although I also love Poivre Samarcande / Bang and Scent Two: Laurel

    Burberry London (fabric covered bottle). The opening is all pepper to me. There is no real dry-down, so I just reapply for another pepper blast. Great fun, and cheap.

    Bought a small jar from a supermarket sometime ago. Smells really nice. Can't remember the exact name. 'Ragu' or something...

    I'm wearing Burberry the Beat for Men today, and it's really more like Rochas Lui to me. It's going to be 100 degrees here today and it's working really well so far. Good little scent for $19.99 (clearance at Target). Glad I bought it!

    The best pepper fragrance i've ever smelt in my humble opinion is Bang by Marc Jacobs by far. Sorry.

    Burberry -- The Beat

    I wasn't too crazy when I first tried it out, which I remember was near the end of the summer months. Something came over me and I gave it a try on a cold snowy day, and I suddenly loved it. I'd give it a shot again in the cold weather months.
