Good, but with sacrifices.
I really like this fragrance, it has something unique for me, which I miss with other fragrances hard. Independence with no forced complaisance. It just will not please everyone, but many! It is very intense when sprayed on directly, comfortingly warm, more something for autumn. I find him very emotional with good presence, without being intrusive.

Now comes a but. He is definitely not the Performamce monster, as he is advertised. Sure, it lasts long but not disproportionately long either. You should not be blinded by Youtubern, especially those who like to wear white and constantly rotate.

I would even argue that a Fragrance in this high price segment would have to do more

A fragrance that is addictive...
The gateway drug was the insanely good original Spicebomb. Thereupon I have also treated myself to the extreme variant. Initially, I found the vanilla note too dominant. After wearing several times, however, opened up to me the entire composition with its great spiciness. Since then I am addicted. Even today, I have to take a sniff at my t-shirt during my lunch break, if I put it on, and enjoy it. Pleasingly, the pungent smell on the shirt lingers all day, while on the skin it's more of a vanilla-tobacco note. This smells great too, but not quite as perfect as the top and heart notes. Once again: Chapeau Mr. Polge!

a real grenade
Preliminary: I've never had so many reactions to a fragrance like this one.
It was even repurchased for me, unfortunately :-)
The performance is stunning and rather what for large rooms and outside.
The bottle also makes the fragrance all honor, if I take too many sprayers and get into the car to people go the really K.O. of it ^^

Very sweet, spicy-peppery compliment getter at an excellent price!

The extreme winner
Another grenade? really?
V&R offers a normal flask in the feminine side of the business, while keeps on handing army toys to the gents customers. The grenade shape is there for some time now, but I am still not convinced that an explosive shaped container is a good choice as a perfume bottle, or for any product for that matter. Perhaps it calls for virile thoughts association and V&R thought it to be a good marketing image. I keep picturing a wife giving her husband one of this hand grenades to pass him an hidden messages like:
"I want to explode you!!" or "Need a gadget, army boy?"...
But I must recognize that it is a flanker. The product family image should be kept, and you receive a quality container with a good sprayer. I prefer the Lalique or Bvlgari presentation good taste.

"Extreme"?
The word "Extreme" may have an awful lot of different meanings in perfumery. Most of the times it may simply designate a flanker where a note or an accord has been intensified. What often occurs is that some other notes just got fainter or vanished. Over the years I learned that "Intense" and "Extreme" are two different concepts in this industry.
Actually I prefer this version even if I find this fragrance less "intense" than the original. It is a tiny less spicy (no pink pepper note? no pungent chili note?) and a bit more sweet due to a new dark vanilla heavy note in the base. It is kind of warmer and creamier too, probably due to added amber to envelop the vanilla-tobacco base accord. I never complained about the original Spicebomb performance, but there seems to exist a bit of a gain in this domain as well. Longevity is good enough for 9 hours with three sprays, and sillage peaks at 7 feet assuring a noticeable projection for 2.5 hours.

The evolution.
It opens pepperish with an undertone of grapefruit. Black pepper is used instead of pink pepper and chili. Some people claim it to be a bit intrusive but I like it this way.
In the heart, the warm an sweet strong cinnamon scent is omnipresent all through the fragrance lifespan and it's the soul of this perfume. A slight body odour (cumin?) makes it smell very natural.
The dark vanilla and tobacco base combo sweetens the fragrance even further, but in a very civilized and manly way. The sweet and hot spices are dense but smooth and comfortable due to the increased ambery background.

Let's disassemble this extreme hand grenade:
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
- Opening: 9.0 (Very spicy, mainly with black pepper and cinnamon - great!)
- DryDown: 10.0 (Heavenly, with cinnamon, black vanilla and some tobacco in an amber background)
- Longevity: 9.0 (Up to 9 hours with 3 sprays)
- Sillage: 8.5 (Up to 9 feet; it projects for 2.5 hours)
- Uniqueness: 7.5 (Yes, it's a flanker and very similar to the original, besides some other designer offers)
- Usability: 7.5 (Cold season for both night and day time; avoid any type of non cold temperatures)
- Versatility: 9.0 (An elegant and manly perfume both for formal occasions or the cosiness of a fireplace)
- Compliments: 9.0 (Compliment magnet)
- Quality: 10.0 (Top quality ingredients, solid flask)
- Presentation: 7.0 (Ok... some people like the grenade shape)
- Price: 6.0 (90 ml / 100~105 Euros... pricey for a designer fragrance)
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Overall rating: 8.41 / 10.00
- between 7 and 8 = above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recommended;
- greater than 9 = do not miss;

Recommendation: This is a top choice as an elegant and masculine scent to use in cold temperatures, either during the day or at night. It fits a ceremony, the office (provided you are the boss), or at home in a family environment. A Christmas season perfume? Why not...
Blind buy? No, because it is priced above 100 Euros. But if you happen to try it, you will most certainly love it.

Pure sensuality & beguiling spiciness
Completely different world!
The Extreme exudes a spicier, stronger & more intense character than the EDP.
This almost tight sharpness of the black pepper which acts with the sweet grapefruit with a touch of pimento, is really ideal for the winter hit!
That this is a winter fragrance, I think I no longer need to mention ^^

The cinnamon chords, saffron & cumin of lavender are very well balanced. Up to the base note it takes then einwenig, however, it is worthwhile here to wait for the ergebniss :P.

The smoky tobacco, the amber & the mega strong vanilla note are already really spacy!
Quite clear Kaufempfhelung :)

Seductiveness in a Bottle!!!
One of the best designer fragrances I have ever smelled. From the opening to the drydown. Very nice combination of tobacco, vanilla and black pepper. Outstandingly good, very pleasant and not at all intrusive.
The fragrance lasts long and the sillage is above average.
For me, best fragrance for the winter hands down.

Vanilla Spice Bomb®!
This winter has not been the coldest so far, at least for us in the southwest. Nevertheless, I finally had time and leisure to test Spicebomb Extreme extensively over a few weeks despite (or maybe because of?) all the restrictions. And I must say the fragrance is already rightly so high in favor and also here in the Parfumo charts.

The main components are not unusual for themselves and certainly not spectacular: vanilla and cinnamon are for my nose clearly in the center. Drumherher dance a few fresh sprinkles, but primarily many other spices - the Christmas associations I can therefore understand. The whole thing also triggers a pleasantly warming sensation for me. Underneath, there's a bit of tobacco and a very soft amber note, neither of which ever come to the fore. Without looking at the fragrance pyramid, I would have guessed a hint of cardamom. The indicated cumin I perceive for it again not individually.

And even if these are all components that are known from other winter fragrances, it is probably the mixture or composition that makes Spicebomb Extreme. The fragrance seems excellently composed and balanced. The same goes for the performance. The fragrance is strong, there is no question about that. At the same time, however, it is so well balanced that it lasts a long time (at a reasonable dosage) without developing an annoying factor. For me, that's actually the greatest art. Because loud and annoying can many...

As an insider tip, you can now really no longer call this fragrance. Nevertheless, I have made the experience that he is not so extremely well known and widespread outside the community. Therefore, and of course because of all the other described benefits, I can recommend the Vanilla Spice Bomb® For the next cold season only warmly!

Spicebomb Extreme
A bomb of goodness: creamy, sophisticated, strong, wintry, vanilla, sensual, from the wake .. Whoever has more, the more. It represents the pleasure of wearing it. The packaging may seem tamarro, but in reality I find it cute, appropriate and original, shame about the lack of the cap, but there is a nice tab that uncorks before spraying it, what really resembles a grenade. Paradoxically it is a youthful perfume even if it may not seem so from its strong but sophisticated scent at the same time from vanilla, in addition to tobacco, cinnamon, spices ... This is because the perfume represents a strong sensuality that is best exploited in the age of 20 at 40 years old. Unfortunately in this period of virus I cannot exploit it and every now and then I do a spray on my wrist because it is really an irresistible pearl. It is a perfume that has pretty much everything: balanced, sweet yet strong at the same time (so there is no that thing that is mistaken for a unisex or even feminine perfume), it has a creamy vanilla, it also smells tobacco and cinnamon which make it very warm and preferable for the winter and autumn season. Satisfied, I am seriously afraid that this perfume will be discontinued or reformulated, I HOPE NOT.

Initially bright spicy, this powdery/sweet oriental-spicy Winter fragrance slowly settles to a warm resinous-earthy base. Good performance.

A lot of dry spice, saffron, cumin, cinnamon and a generous dose of pimento to round it all off. Oriental, a bit medicinal and very spicy.
