Marc Jacobs bang cologne review For Men

Written by Lucas M. Hall

In 2001, perfume brand Marc Jacobs started offering fragrances for both men and women. They initially started operations working in conjunction with renowned perfumer Coty. Consequently, this relatively new brand has produced some iconic fragrances.

In 2010, they released Bang. This captivating fragrance was created by perfumer Ann Gottlieb. Ann is responsible for some awesome fragrances such as Contradiction by Calvin Klein and Fusion by Faberge. I have made a review.

Just from looking at the packaging, you can tell that you are dealing with something unique. In fact, this fragrance is the 2011 winner of Fifi Awards for men’s luxe best packaging. The bottle has a curved shape that features a designed impact, hence the name bang.

If I were to describe this fragrance in one word it would be spicy. Right from the top note you are welcomed with an alluring aroma of peppers.
