    Default Chili Pepper Vibe

    I love Padparadscha, but sadly it does not last long at all on my skin. Any recommendations for a scent with a chili pepper vibe that might be longer lasting? Thanks!

    It's more large pepper than chilli but L'Artisan's Piment Brulant is very special and overlooked:

    Xeryus Rouge has a strong chili pepper vibe...it's a great take on the note.

    Paprika Brasil by Hermes has an interesting nose tingling effect from the chili pepper in the topnotes, however it is short-lived and not worth the pricetag

    All the ones that first popped in my head have been mentioned, but one that may not be exactly what you're looking for, but could be a viable summer frag is Eternity Aqua. If you notice, there is a decent dose of Szechuan pepper in there. A bit off the mark, but thought I'd put it in there :}

    Just thought of another, Aramis Havana.

    Unfortunately at anywhere near its price point for fiery chile pepper, the one you love that does not last on your skin is about as good as it gets, IMO. I would just reapply.

    Agree 100%. Absolutely extraordinary fragrance and possibly the most underrated of all time...perhaps?

    +1 taste of fragrance, the chili note doesn't last too long in the life of the fragrance though, i say it disappears within the first 30-45 minutes.

    Kokorico is also worth a try.

    Arquiste Anima Dulcis is certainly worth a try.

    Comme des Garçons Red Series Harissa, perhaps? Also, I haven't smelled it in a long time, but doesn't Montale Red Aoud have a chili pepper note to it?

    A couple of fresh/aquatic type scents with chili pepper and pimento notes thrown in are Tommy Bahama's Very Cool and Davidoff's Echo. Both have chili pepper mixed with nutmeg in the mid notes which creates a metal type accord to my nose.

    The absolute best oily, hot chili pepper note is found in Patou Pour Homme. The tricky thing is finding a bottle that the top notes have not burned off from. It took me four bottles to finally find one.
