    Default Piper Nigrum vs Esprit du Tigre

    I do know 'Piper Nigrum', but do not 'Esprit du Tigre'. Does someone could explain me, please, what they have in common and what the differences between them?

    I've read about the similarities and liked 'Piper Nigrum' a lot, but I 'd like to read a little more about 'Esprit du Tigre' before trying a blind buy, mainly about the use of clove and longevity.

    Thank you in advance.

    The Heeley is an overall much better scent IMO than the former.

    The refreshing notes of "Esprit du Tigre" (mint, black pepper and camphor) are able to maintain during development? And about the use of clove, can you say me something?

    Esprit du Tigre is much better IMO.

    Both have prominent clove mint and pepper, and in both are the main notes.

    How many hours do you get with PN?
    Esprit it's more close to the skin but it's more interesting: it smells more natural, also take out the anis and replace it with cardamom and cinnamon and you get something more spicy rather than fresh.
    We want a 'Niche' forum.

    Here is the key. I'm looking more for freshness than spiciness, in this case.

    'Piper Nigrum' fades out quickly, but maintains that fresh, yet faint, notes, for a long time.
