Very close to the original
My latest achievement this month. Suitable for warmer temperatures I ordered this flanker of the superstar Spicebomb. On my wishlist for some time already, now he has managed to assert himself. I'm surprised this Flanker gets so little attention. 2 comments and 3 statements, does not seem very polarize the fragrance. Of course you have to ask yourself the question: Do you need a Flanker like that? I like fresh flankers of heavy fragrances very much, such as Frozen Cologne by La Nuit de L'Homme. Such fresh updates are really good.
Available in 90ml. Great bottle like the original. Some find this hand grenade trashy, I love this bottle. In this version bright matching the freshness. Here registered as Eau fraiche it is sold for some time as Spicebomb fresh. Name back or forth, it comes down to the same thing.
The fragrance is very close to the original. The world famous Spicebomb DNA is always present from the first to the last moment. This typical cinnamon-like DNA is, like the original, clearly in the foreground, which doesn't set it apart from the original in a great way. It doesn't have to be, because the original has enough fans... and I've got it right. The difference is more in the background: there are citric notes like fresh lemon and grapefruit. The great freshness kick is missing, but these notes make the fragrance much fresher and lighter. In addition there are salty notes of sea salt and a light fresh floral note. Similar to the original Spicebomb, there is little development, but it does not need to be done. All in all a great creation for warmer days in contrast to the original.
The performance is not like the rest of the family, but this applies to all Frische-Flanker. Here the Sillage is top the first hours and also later still quite good and very close. The durability should be between 6 and 8. I haven't tested that thoroughly yet. But decent.
Similar to the LNDL Frozen Cologne, the big freshness kick is missing, which is also difficult with heavy DNA's. Nevertheless I find such flankers really good for daytime and warmer days. Especially between temperatures of 10 to approx. 20/max. 25 degrees I find it very portable and you will arrive well with it. A fragrance choice without great risk, as the DNA was already very successful. The DNA is no longer very unique, but it often pulls.
If you like the original Spicebomb or Spicebomb Extreme, you should try it. Very successful and has clearly too little attention.
