A sweet-spicy scent that fades too quickly.
In search of a fragrance for the cold season of the year, it is almost impossible not to miss this bottle with its red accents. It doesn't always have to be a hand grenade, with which probably everyone here in the forum knows what to do and there doesn't always have to be an extravagant bottle form available, which focuses more on appearance than on being. After all, the appearance of the product is often the only consideration when it comes to buying a new product. Spicebomb Extreme by Viktor&Rolf is a good example. The fragrance is interesting and therefore has a certain buying power, but especially the bottle is probably the thing that contributes to the final decision for many less perfume enthusiasts.
So, that was quite a lot for the bottle alone and that, although the bottle itself is not responsible for the fragrance and its course. So let's move on to what's probably the most interesting thing for all of us.
Sprayed onto the arm joint, a strong freshness is noticeable at first, which is caused by the bergamot in the top note. Very fast, however, nothing more is to be perceived magnificent from this however and cinnamon as well as Muskat use. The fragrance becomes warmer, softer and automatically spicier, which is definitely due to the very present cinnamon note. That resembles the brew for a certain time, which by the way should not be meant contemptuously at all, which can be found in the orange-black hand grenade. But even these parallels are soon no longer to be heard, as sandalwood and vanilla now provide a little more sensuality and sweetness, which somewhat damps the cinnamon spiciness and harmonizes perfectly with it. Spicebomb Extreme is, probably by name, even more radical when it comes to contrasting sweetness with pepper and tobacco.
We can state that Givenchy's fragrance has a great harmony, which is sensually warm and whose sweetness is accompanied by a wonderful spice. This is the fragrance for those for whom Spicebomb Extreme is too extreme, too strong, too proll. It is a fragrance that fits perfectly on the Christmas market, which can also be worn on Christmas Eve, when you are sitting in front of the fireplace, the family is visiting and wrapping themselves in a cuddly sweater. For me it's just a Christmas scent, thanks to cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. For the autumn or for the winter it is simply inappropriate in my eyes.
But what definitely doesn't fit here are durability and sillage, because here I simply expect more from such a heavy fragrance.
