Poivre 23 by Le Labo Review
Poivre 23 zooms in on pepper and does a swell job unlike many of its contemporaries. In this Le Labo scent, we are given a taste of the accord’s different sides: it is dark, light, bold and simple. Despite the notes being none too special, the resulting fragrance is vibrant and unique. Points are taken off of it for its inaccessibility, but for those willing to shell out what it is asking for, one can get a shimmering scent that is also above average in performance and sillage.
We feel that Le Labo hits the right spot for the pepper here
The different notes give the central accord more color
Simple yet very rich
Is very unique
Not very accessible
