The Scoop

Blackpepper is the pitch black of a starless sky rendered into perfume form. A perfect storm of “black” flavor molecules clash as if in a Super Collider – pungent black pepper, charred cedar, and smoky Akigala wood sparking off against each other and then pulling apart, over and over again.

Wearing this scent is like slowly adjusting your eyes to pitch darkness; with time, an incredible wealth of detail is revealed. The fragrance is deep, hot, and oily, but at the same time, it’s as dry as a bone. The burnt sugar of tonka bean softens the searing heat of the pepper, like the edge of a cedar log caramelizing on an open fire. A remarkably crisp, airy fragrance emerges phoenix-like from the hot ashes. Fierce enough to command attention, sophisticated enough to leave a lasting impression, Blackpepper is the kind of sexy, modern, avant-garde masterpiece that could only have come from Comme des Garçons.

Here's what other people are saying about Blackpepper...
Unique and lovely. Quite a strong, sharp black pepper initially but the drydown is much quieter and sweeter, though the pepper still lingers. While it's not a scent I would wear for myself, I quite like the smell and wish it came in a candle. Sample before buying a full bottle!

Black pepper throwing off delightful sparks as it dissolves into slightly tarry smoke-and-ozone heart notes. As others have noted it doesn't seem to have spectacular longevity (though I thought sillage was just fine for something this intimate), but it's great fun while it lasts.

i received a sample of this and i am in love. a beautiful smoky autumnal scent which isn't too sweet.

I received a vial of this in my Sample Fitting. This would absolutely be one of my favorite scents of all time, if it lasted. Unfortunately it seems to dissipate rather quickly on me; after a couple of hours, I can't smell it at all. If it lasted longer, I'd definitely buy a bottle.

Outstanding, take Memoir for Men by Amouage, remove the Absinthe. You now have Blackpepper, hot blast of pepper on opening followed by incense, cedar, and dirt (patchouli). This is really special, good price point,.

After using up my sample from luckyscent, I think I'm gonna have to get a full bottle. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite smells! After the sharp pepper opening (which is also nice) it's like breathing in a cool sweet whiff of oxygen combined with a faint cedar/clean laundry aroma. All this with a small medicinal undertone makes for a very versatile fragrance that I seem to reach for constantly. I've also been putting a small dab on my pillow at night, and it's been very comforting and enjoyable to fall asleep to! CDG is one of the better houses out there, right up there with Creed, Amouage, Tom Ford, and Penhaligons! 5 best fragrance houses IMO

Sharp black pepper opening with a nice smokey incense dry down. The challenges I have with this fragrance lie in it's silage and longevity. This fragrance becomes a skin scent within a couple of hours. You have to go heavy on the application to get some decent longevity. Maybe it's my chemistry but all of the Commes Des Garcons fragrances wear that way. Aside from that it's nice scent to have in your Fall rotation.

This is Insanely Beautiful! It smells like a combination of Armani Prive's Bois D'Encens and Wonderwood with tonka bean and a hint of cinnamon.
