Poivre Piquant by L’Artisan Parfumeur

Another sample, another scent that isn’t for me.  Don’t get me wrong, this cologne is very distinctive and clean smelling.  When I first applied it to my skin, the pepper really popped out, but as it settled in, it became much more light and airy.  I would say it almost has a lily smell to it (most likely the honey).  I would consider this a nice spring or summer cologne for those who like very clean scents.  I am also finding that the scent lasts, but is in no way overpowering.

The following is from the L’Artisan Parfumeur website:

White hot pepper tempered with sensual woods

Poivre Piquant is inspired by a wedding story in the Kama Sutra. Sugar and pepper were sprinkled on the bride’s wedding veil. Sugar for the sweetness of life, pepper for the sparkling joy (and sensuality!) to come. This blend of white hot pepper tempered with milky woody notes is sharp, soft and burning all at once. A hint of liquorice and honey round off this elegant essay in aphrodisiac desire.
