Fragrance Review

Winner of the 2011 Fragrance Foundation’s for Men’s Luxe Best Packaging, was presented by in 2010, as a creation that will inaugurate a fresh masculine style. Built around the dominant accords of different varieties of pepper combined with sensual woods, Bang represents a woody spicy fragrance for men, developed by perfumer . The perfume combines the modern style with the impertinence of . And the novelty is that the designer himself appears in the advertising campaign, striking some provocative poses and wearing nothing but a giant bottle of fragrance to cover his intimate area.

Even though I refused to test it initially, on the account that I did not find the bottle interesting, later on the critic’s opinions stirred my interest. From the first sniff of Bang, my sense felt intrigued by its similarity with , however differently developed, due to the fact that the top notes are a spicy blend of white, black and red pepper. Later, in the mid development the combination of masculine woods attached a warm note to the structure. After a couple of hours, the base arrived with the distinctive smell of benzoin resin, mixed with white moss, vetiver and patchouli for a memorable trail.

Bang was presented in a bottle that looked as if it was subjected to a punch. The metal flacon was designed by in collaboration with Marc Jacobs, while the stopper was painted in a sober grey color. Overall, Bang is an invigorating fragrance aimed at the modern man.
