CdG Blackpepper vs Montales Intense Pepper and Greyland? Any other pepper frags?

Hi, I've been looking for a heavy blackpepper frag for a while and CdG Blackpepper is so far the best I've found. I would have purchased it already but my problem is that it becomes a skin scent really quickly and I'd have to keep a decant on me to respray. Performance is actually not too bad, it still smells of heavy pepper 6 hours later. So how similar are Intense Pepper and Greyland? I can't find samples for them in Australia so would one of them be a safe blind buy as a black pepper frag that can perform and give me black pepper as the main note throughout the entire time its on my skin? I'm open to suggestions as well. Thanks.

Probably not the best but check Dunhill Desire Black , when i tested it it was a black pepper blast , i sprayed it in the air and the house smelled of it for a good while.
It’s cheap , so you can blind buy it

While not having any comparison with the fragrances in the thread starting post and/or title, since at least until now unfamiliar with both, taking the liberty to add further pepper (mainly black and/or pink pepper) scents as possible recommendations in no particular order, especially: Yardley Citrus&Wood, Opus 1870 and/or Ginepro Nero by l'Erbolario

Try these
Comme des Garcons Black
Noir Epices

I loved Black on paper then when it hit my skin all I got was licorice and birch tar. It was quite heavy on pepper on paper then nothing on my skin. Noir Epices was nice but not pepper heavy enough for my liking.

Probably not the best but check Dunhill Desire Black , when i tested it it was a black pepper blast , i sprayed it in the air and the house smelled of it for a good while.

I've smelled Desire Black (and Burberry the Beat) and the pepper was there but I thought it lacked oomph. I'm looking for something that's on Bang by Marc Jacobs level of pepper.

Thanks, I'll look into them.

Montale Intense Pepper IMO.

Amouage Honour Man also has a good dose of pepper in it as does Atelier Cologne’s pepper scent.

For me personally I have gone offer pure pepper scents due to the amount of ISO E Super used in them, but actually love them when blended in as part of the scent, such as in New York Intense.

Try Poivre Samarcande, Burberry The Beat, Chic Men and to a certain extent, Déclaration/Déclaration Essence. Bang is indeed nice, but discontinued and hard to find.

+1 for Intense Pepper then.

Alright thanks I'll look into them.

All the reviews make it out to be really minty though?

My first thought was Bang, but it's really not worth the asking price, now that it's discontinued.

I have a 5ml mini of Bang and its great but not worth the price these days.
