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.
