BANG by Marc Jacobs

Coincidentally, Sunday evening after sitting within earshot of Marc Jacobs at Pastis (!!), I received a sample of the highly anticipated men’s fragrance Bang – the first new men’s scent in a decade.

The fragrance, with a top note of all three peppercorns (black, white, and red) initially hits you hard, like a slap to the senses. But soon after, as it warms into your skin, Marc works his magic as usual, and the initial slap transforms into a teasing little tap, wrapped with masculine woods. The base of the fragrance reveals my ultimate favorite scent, patchouli, as well as vetyver and white moss.

Despite the fact that I have been wearing the spicy fragrance all week and simply can’t get enough, it is intended for a “contemporary guy, who, even if he isn’t young, has a younger spirit.”

Marc considers this men’s fragrance to be very personal. “I wanted to do something that I would love,” said Jacobs. Apparently, Marc loves the fragrance so much, that he decided to pose in the advertisement campaign himself – naked on a silver Mylar bed with only an oversize bottle between his legs!
