    Default Black Pepper scents for men

    Now I know Demeter Fragrance Library has a black pepper scent, but I'm looking for a cologne for guys that has black pepper as a base note and..well...I lean to cardamon or cloves as a secondary scent. Any suggestions?

    Black Pepper isn't a base note; it's a top note. The best peppery fragrance I can think of is Bang.

    Poivre Piquant or Piper Nigrum, although I think they are both unisex, have deep black pepper character.

    Caron Coup de Fouet is mostly clove, possibly with some pepper.

    Malle's French Lover smells just like ground black pepper!

    F pour Homme by Salvatore Ferragamo has a black pepper midnote. Top is apple and lavender with the base containing labdanum.

    +1 to Piper Nigrum

    a hesitant +1 to Bang, and I'll add something like CdG Wonderwood
    NEW SPLITS - By Kilian A Taste of Heaven and Beyond Love (full 50ml bottles). .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Bang is great because it's starts out with pepper, and is pretty linear. Only problem is it only lasts for a couple hours on me. But I love black pepper in frags and this one is pretty cheap.
