To make black pepper perfume oil, young peppercorns from the Piper Nigrum vine are dried, crushed, and then steam-distilled. The resulting oil provides an exotic kick and lends its grounding properties to perfumes. Case in point: these four intriguing black-pepper-scented fragrances.
Take Salvatore Ferragamo’s Uomo, which begins with sweet notes and cardamom before revealing its deeply spicy scent that has black pepper written all over it. Then there’s Histoires de Parfum’s 1899, an ode to Paris’s glitzy nightlife and chic style. A fresh and spicy vanilla-black-pepper perfume enriched with intense vetiver and cinnamon spice accents. Also worth mentioning here is Marc Jacobs’ Bang, a woody scent that resonates with the modern man because of its unique, masculine character. Initially, the fragrance begins with a prominent black pepper note, then follows with a woody, somewhat transparent vetiver, and finishes with just a tiny hint of spice from patchouli. Last but not least, there’s Korres’ Black Pepper, a unisex perfume with rich marine notes, aromatic woods, and a touch of fresh black pepper. This simple and straightforward scent is perfect for just about any occasion.
