    Default I just got Banged! My newest Obsession Marc Jacobs Bang

    I want to share my new obsession, Marc Jacobs Bang! It's rare and wonderful when you find a new scent that you love instantly, and keeps you coming back, but this peppery vetiver does it for me.

    So I bought it blind, it was on sale, I saw it and it called to me from the rack, the glorious and wonderful Bang! A peppery fragrance with a gorgeous dry down. It's everything I love in a bottle, vetiver, pink, black, white pepper a touch of citrus and some wood, just heavenly.

    People do complain about longevity, but honestly, I don't have an issue, 5 sprays give me a full 6-8 hour workday worth of wear. it's hard to describe but it gives you a unique citrus pepper, like pepper gains infused into lemon rind, just gorgeous stuff. It smells expensive. It's sillage isn't beastly but I can definitely smell it on myself and my clothes, it's a fragrance for young those intimate with you, sexy, sophisticated, perfectly balanced I'm so impressed. Do skip the wretched followup Bang Bang though, completely different scent generic and dull "sport" scent marketed to the masses.

    I highly recommend this, it's definitely one I'll always have in my collection. I pray it's never discontinued, I'd be heartbroken.

    An pretty good frag. Should have been named Pepperbomb. Excellent drydown.

    Its my favorite pepper out there. Bad marketing on their part.

    I also like the peppery vetiver dry down. Tried a couple of sprays from a friends bottle. Liked it. Had heard so many negative things about Bang, that I expected the worse. It is quite a nice fragrance. Bottle worthy for me.

    It smells like a knock-off of CdG 2 man to me.

    I'm worried about this guy. Multiple Bang threads along with a TdH thread that basically called anyone who liked it pathetic. Just....

    Anyways I think Bang is great!

    I fully concur - +1!

    A great thread with humorous title, but the scent is serious. A wonderful scent full of peppercorns - pink, white & black...fresh ground from the pepper mill. Something to note as well - a scent that layers well with citrus fragrances, which adds dimensions to scents.

    Definitely full-bottle worthy! Great juice.

    Cheers,

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    So, how is that a blind buy......seeing it in a shop and trying it?

    I do like Bang. Great longevity on me. The flanker Bang Bang is a dud though.
