    Default Fragrances With Peppery Notes?

    I'm really enjoying the D.R. Harris Windsor EdT that I'm wearing today. The only problem with it is that it doesn't last very long at all.

    I do have Terre d'Hermes parfum, which many people say is similar to D.R. Harris Windsor. Actually, the TdH is my very favorite scent but I find it rather different than the D.R. Harris. For one thing, the D.R. Harris Windsor seems to have a much more prominent peppery note.

    What other fragrances with peppery notes do you suggest that I explore?

    I hope to find something with a bit more longevity.

    I'd prefer to stay away from anything that also has a lot of sage or patchouli.

    Thanks!

    Nick

    Tzora by Anat Fritz should be right up your alley. It does have a bit of patchouli in it, but it is primarily a Peruvian pepper, bergamot, Vetiver and cedar driven composition, with a mossy undertone in the early heart phase.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    I do love peppery fragrances

    Bang - Lots of chilli powder
    Burberry the beat - Pure salty peppers (this one I dont like cause its salty, but worth a try)
    Angel Men Taste of Fragrance Chilli - A LOT of chilli pepper sauce, i mean A LOT
    Le Labo Poivre 23 - Resinous pepper
    Le Labo Baie Rose 26 - Pimento berry, very natural

    There are a hell of a lot of peppery fragrances but I cant remember right now. But the above are all very very good, i own and love all of them.

    I liked a sample of Penhaligon Opus 1870, starting off peppery and ending up roses, but longevity was lacking, at least on my skin.

    Assiduosity has also recommended "Molton Brown's Black Pepper - the eau (if they still make it) is a little monotone, but as a range of luxurious bath and shower wear for men it takes some beating..."

    Another vote for Marc Jacobs Bang, a really under-rated fragrance and peppery as hell. On the niche side (and less dominated by pepper, despite the name) is Lorenzo Villoresi's Piper Nigrum. If you can find an older one in the translucent glass bottle, it's a better formulation, but the new one is still very good.

    One of my more peppery fragrances is Penhaligon's Juniper Sling. The opening is very peppery. JS is one of my favorite late dry down fragrances. People have complained about it's poor longevity, but I have not found that to be the case at all.

    Wow! Thanks for all the excellent suggestions. Clearly, I've got to sample the Marc Jacobs and the Hermes as well as many of the others mentioned here.

    Normally, I'd take a stroll to the fine stores along Chicago's Michigan Avenue to try some of these. However, the temperature here is currently in the single digits so I think I may just order some decants online.

    Bulgari pour homme. While I do get the "well-blended" feel most people comment on, I also get -- throughout the whole wearing -- big hits of black pepper. Worth a try -- and no sage or patchouli!

    +1 A great initial blast of pepper, and a great incense fragrance. Much more approachable than Avignon and the pepper just makes it! It is a little pricey though...

    Hermes Poivre Samarcande is a great reference pepper, but the OP did want longevity - this one is wonderful but fleeting.

    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.)

    I strongly disagree. Rabanne's Eau is primarily a bergamot & vetiver bomb, not a reference point when looking for peppery scents.

    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!
