I managed to get my hands on a sample of this. I was excited to try it after smelling the bottle. I love black pepper and had high hopes. Howerver, as soon as I sprayed it on my wrist, I knew I was going to be dissapointed. This isn't really about pepper, but nutmeg. The nutmeg is overpowering from the initial spray all the way past dry down. Getting past the somewhat confusing top notes, it becomes quite sweet as well. Too sweet for me. It makes me smell like Christmas potporri. Maybe I just need to try this again in the winter.
Someone on basenotes stated that it smells like a spice rack. I can understand that.
My wife likes a lot of what I try, but she absolutely hated this one. Another good reason to pass on it.
The presentation of the sample is one of the nicest I've seen. A full 2ml in a glass atomizer, placed inside a handsome box.
