The prices were the best that I could find on any other fragrance sites. The service was fabulous. I was totally surprised to receive the merchandise so fast. I will definitely use FragranceX.com again for future fragrance purchases

The first time I smelled "Bang" by Marc Jacobs, I was taken in by a peppery smell that dried down to a masculine yet smooth resin-type wood with pepper/spice and the slightest hint of maybe smooth and sweet tobacco... good for giving off that contemporary, smooth, charismatic, and sophisticated-sexy type of vibe.

It is definitely a scent that will work well for younger men who like to give off that sophisticated, "young yet mature", and sexy vibe. It's not an overpowering, musky, and spicy cologne like some older men's cologne (I don't think there's really any true musk in it, just a masculine woodiness-- you think you smell a hint of musk, but it's not truly musk). So, to recap, there is a tiny bit of smoothness to the woody scent (instead of being an overpowering spicy musk) which makes this perfect for younger guys who want to give off that vibe of young-mature, charismatic, and sophisticated sexiness. To me, there's not many good peppery/spicy colognes out there to begin with and LESS that are appropriate for younger guys (in their 20s-30s).

It will be a great scent to try out for those late evening dinners and dates during the late summer to fall (when the temperature gets cooler and less humid).

Dry down was about 30 min-- during the dry down the stronger peppery/spice will lessen a bit. In the long run after the dry down, the pepper-spice will lessen to maybe about 80% within the first 3-4 hours leaving you with a masculine, smooth woodiness with a bit of pepper for 6-8 hours. 3 sprays should be enough. If you want the spicy-pepperiness to stay strong, you need to reapply every 4 hours or so.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

            Comments about Bang By Marc Jacobs:

            I don't want my hubby to smell like a citrus grove, the ocean or clean laundry. I want him to smell manly and sexy. Most men's fragrances now smell like body wash even worse they smell like my body wash. I want him to smell like a guy. This just does it for me. He wears it and I melt. I love love love it. It's just strong enough without being overpowering. If you want to smell like a metrosexual this isn't for you, your girlfriend is never going to borrow it. If you want to smell like a man and leave her wanting to wear your shirt because it smells like you.Buy this one.

                    "Bang" is the perfect name for this fragrance. It's spicy, peppery smell works on my skin and lasts for a long time. Applied in the morning, I can still smell it when I go to bed. I'm not sure if the name has a dual meaning, but it could be right!
