Excerpt: I don't want my hubby to smell like a citrus grove, the ocean or clean laundry. I want him to smell manly and sexy. Most men's fragrances now smell like body wash even worse they smell like my body wash. I want him to smell like a guy. This just does it for me. He wears it and I melt. I love love love it. It's just strong enough without being overpowering. If you want to smell like a metrosexual this isn't for you, your girlfriend is never going to borrow it.
Excerpt: "Bang" is the perfect name for this fragrance. It's spicy, peppery smell works on my skin and lasts for a long time. Applied in the morning, I can still smell it when I go to bed. I'm not sure if the name has a dual meaning, but it could be right!
Summary: The opening is quite peppery, but only for about 5 minutes. I see the references to TDH, but this is fleeting, almost subliminal, only similar in that there is an "earthy" quality here, like in Encre Noire also, only much more muted in Bang. I end up imagining salty homemade play dough with some wet dirt thrown in for good measure. I echo the sentiment that this is a try-before-you-buy scent.
Summary: If your woman likes the smell of fresh cracked pepper then get this asap. a very rich woodsy smell, primarily noted with peppercorn smell. Also over time I noticed it has a almost sweet smell like that of something citrusy. It is right around this time that the main smell wears off. I'd say after a good 8 hours, give or take based on where you spray it, diet, and so on. This cologne is very hard to find.
