Bang Review

Although Marc Jacobs' Bang is structured around a woody-amber skeleton that recalls a myriad modern men’s fragrances, it bravely renounces the citrus and metallic lavender embellishments typical of the genre. Instead, Yann Vasnier fleshed out the composition using Givaudan’s aptly named patent molecule Pepperwood. Boosted by a large helping of Iso E Super, the effect is a bright, diffusive, woody, and above all peppery fragrance with strong mossy undertones.
