    Default Pink Pepper Fragrance Reccommendations

    Hey guys,

    Ive recently realized that Im a big fan of Pink Pepper Notes in fragrances. Lately ive noticed it used in a lot of designer fragrances. I tend to try and steer away from most of the more popular designer fragrances because they are exactly that too popular. However can any of you reccommend a higher end designer or niche fragrances that have a nice pink pepper note?

    Im getting a decant of Baie Rose 26 by LeLabo so im looking forward to that.

    Thanks guys

    I don't find it too common, but Bvlgari Pour homme has a nice pink pepper note, as does Ormonde Jayne's Isfarkand..

    I'm thinking I may be a fan too, because my current two favorites (both Chanel) have a pink pepper note listed. Sycomore and Allure Edition Blanche.

    It has been a while since I tried my sample of Reflection Man, but I remember it being more on the sweet side rather than peppery...

    Glad someone suggested Ormonde Jayne, I love her stuff. Another one with pink pepper is 'Orris Noir'. When I bought mine the lady at the shop told me lots of guys wear it as well as women. You can also smell pimento berries, which are great too. This is an oriental fragrance.

    Got a Sample of the Honour Man.. its nice but its driving me crazy trying to figure out what other frag it smells like. It smells so familiar. I also tried the SDV. Amazing Frag however I wish the pepper was a little more noticeable on my skin. Its almost like pure vanilla extract in the dry down like everyone says but the opening is amazing.

    Nuit de Tubereuse by L'Artisan Parfumeur makes a very nice use of pink pepper. Not sure how you feel about tuberose--people tend to have strong opinions about that note!--but this is not the typical lush, creamy and rich tuberose at all.

    I've definitely picked up a pink pepper note in Sycomore, and if I'm not mistaken I think Guerlain Heritage has some too.

    My favorite frag with pink pepper is 04 - Petrana by Odin. I sampled it using a dab vial, and didn't really pick up on the pepper, but when I bought it, wow, the pepper really shows up when you spray it on.

    Pink Pepper - or Schinus molle as it is called in the trade - is a very common perfumery ingredient. What isn't common is using it as a prominent note.

    It is called Schinus molle by the way to distinguish it from black pepper, white pepper and green pepper, all of which derrive from the plant Piper nigrum - when used in perfumery this latter note is always called Black Pepper and is distinctly darker and more obviously peppery than Schinus molle. Pink pepper other than in the context of perfume can also sometimes refer to the red fruit of the plant Schinus terebinthifolius.

    In small amounts Schinus molle is used to add a touch of spiciness to florals and other blends - you probably smell it more often than you think.

    I actually tried this at lucky scent this past weekend. I really enjoyed it. However I didnt get to see what the dry down was like.

    We use Pink Pepper in our fragrances at home. It is nice to add some with different ones and see how it changes what I call their fragrance story.

    I agree, plus other fragrances Bertrand Duchaufour has done for L'Artisan Perfumeur- prominently in Dzonghka and Mon Numero 6, but you could find traces of it in many others.
