A resonant reverberation of dynamic intensity. Black Pepper is spice, seen through the transformative gaze of Comme des Garcons. The electric collision of molecules: the crash of spicy pepper seeds suspended within infinite darkness. Warm Madagascan pepper generates a dry heat that never causes us to sweat, only to salivate. As our proverbial tastebuds set to dancing, pepper shimmies into a more bitter incarnation of itself: leaning into diffuse smolder of cedarwood, black pepper reemerges from the woodsy flames, an entirely new spice. Now black pepper is ripe, fresh and fruity against the fertile verdancy of patchouli. Agarwood provides another point of contrast, its sturdy darkness devolving into delicious funk at the piquant suggestion of pepper. Caramel tonka beans cool and cast this constantly evolving entity into something solid yet ever-shifting. The sweetness of tonka bean (laced with a steady current of musk) helps to adapt the amorphous super power of Black Pepper to skin. A powerful subversion of olfactive convention, Black Pepper is an incessant investigation of the perpetually unknown . A profound reinvention of familiar exoticism, this scent is spice, deconstructed, destabilized, decoded.
