Thread: Fragrances With Peppery Notes?
psss a little secret ,,,,,,
Criminally underated & a peppery delight is Oscar for Men , by Oscar De La Renta .
It has no patchoul or sage as you want & its sillage & longevity are almost in the powerhouse range .
At just over $20 a bottle , my mind boggles as to why this one is still flying under the radar ?

Marc Jacob's Bang! comes immediatley to mind.
How about something from the spring and summer end of the spectrum:
Oh so peppery.
Oh so good.

My alltime pepper favorite: Penhaligon's Opus 1870
Calvin Klein Man
Jeez... what's with 'man' and pepper notes??
Hermes Poivre Samarcande is a great reference pepper, but the OP did want longevity - this one is wonderful but fleeting.
Gucci PH II
Lalique White ( the most incredible, slow on duration)
to name a few!
Another vote for Caron's Coup de Fouet.
Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....

L'Occitan. This one is pepper and Lavendar, straight up. Great quality ingredients, beautiful dry down and an incredible value at the price point.
Though it does have patchouli, I don't find it overbearing: Perles de Lalique by Lalique
It is fairly inexpensive - 100 ml for about $40.
Also like Bois D'Encens and Baie Rose 26 (you can find these in the Basenotes Splits forum.)
Go cheap, go Paco Rabanne Eau. I get a schooner's worth of pepper in this fresh 'fume. Longevity and sillage are great provided you let fly on the trigger.
Apart from that, I echo the recommendations for Piper Nigrum, Lalique White, Bang, The Beat and Molton Brown's Black Pepper line.
I also ♥ peppery scents!

Bang or Epic man.
Molton Brown is good but poor longevity for me
poivre samarcante by hermes.
mark jacobs bang is ok,but dont even come close to it.
Amouage Honour Man is the best quality pepper fragrance with great longevity

The heart accord of Chanel Allure Homme is a smooth and elegant pepper.
