Black by Comme des Garcons is a Woody Spicy fragrance for women and men.
An unexpected alliance of woody and aromatic notes with profound earthy and bizarre smoky features is the main identity of Black Eau de Toilette. This perfume uncorks with a beasty presence of black pepper merged finely with olibanum, licorice, and an uncommon woody pepper ingredient named Hercules’ Club which adds a more astringent aftertaste to the leather-inclining smoky incense.

It's nostalgia wrapped in something new and exciting.
Strong black pepper vibes. Performance seemed short as well.
Woodsy, masculine, smoky- exactly as described
It's kind of strange. Very strong wood base to it, with a spicy pepper accent. People seem to notice and comment, and it's usually positive. It's not a sillage monster, you may need to reapply throughout the day. I generally use it for work, as it's not too busy of a fragrance.
It's a little too similar to WonderWood. I prefer Black to WW because of the added pepper dynamic, but it's not a very complex fragrance at all.
Worth trying a sample if you're a fan of heavy wood scents, but don't have expectations of a complex scent.
