The Christmas Market Scent
Spicebomb Extreme the perfect winter scent!!!

Ideal for cold winter days.
It is December 13th. Christmas is just around the corner. It's 8:00 in the evening. The Christmas market is open again. Thick snowflakes fall from the sky and cover the roofs. Large street lamps light the way. Many people warm themselves with punch and cookies at the Christmas stalls and enjoy the Christmas spirit.
That would be the perfect situation for this fragrance
Spicebomb Extreme is a very spicy-sweet scent. It is ideal for cold autumn and winter days. Also in spring and possibly in summer in bad weather still suitable. It is a mix of different spices. To smell out are above all cinnamon, cumin and of course vanilla, which gives the whole a pleasant sweetness. The top note begins slightly fresh with pepper and grapefruit. After a few minutes the heart note comes through, which loses some of its pungency and freshness and develops into an absolutely oriental, sweet and creamy dream At the end the vanilla becomes more and more present and the fragrance is perfectly rounded off.

The shelf life is really good and can be smelled on clothes for several days. So also the Sillage which has a pleasant fragrance cloud. So the scent is really perfect for outside. Even if the Sillage decreases slightly after one hour. For indoor rooms a spray shock should be enough otherwise it can be too strong
All in all, a real grenade!!!
The spice also makes it look very masculine and sexy and is suitable for young and old.
Especially for the coming winter time an absolute recommendation. Can also be bought blind and for a christmas present.
For me the best winter scent at the moment!!!

Flavor of being
Spicebomb Extreme is one of the fragrances that are at the top of the list for me. Modern and elegant. Meaningful. Love at first spray
In the beginning I even perceived the scent differently than now. The vanilla was still in the way, hiding a lot of scents. My nose could at some point be misled by something like vanilla or even sandalwood. Even just a few years ago, many scents of different scents were still closed to me. It's strange how things can change.
Today, I perceive Spicebomb Extreme in a more differentiated way.

There's nothing about Christmas vanilla beans. There's something slightly spicy about the pepper and pimento combo in the top notes. Then add the grapefruit. It reminds me a little of that chocolate bar from the Aldi. What's the name of that brand again? Fruit and chili filling? It has something solemn, but not so that this perfume would become a pure Christmas or winter perfume.
The spiciness in general is much better. What once looked almost like vanilla pudding now smells more like a local and oriental street bazaar. I like it even better this way. This lifts the spice bomb into a completely new light and gives it a worldly character
I was able to locate the caraway in the heart of the fragrance right from the start. It caught my attention immediately. Perfumes with caraway seeds? Where do you find something like that? Today there are many fragrances that contain caraway as an ingredient. This gives Spicebomb something almost exotic, but also familiar at home. Cinnamon, which contributes a medium sweetness. Saffron is also said to be part of the core. That's where the slightly dusty nuance comes from.

The tobacco in the base runs through the fragrance like a pleasant plume of smoke. This gives the perfume a dryness and combines secretly with the saffron.
And hold the vanilla. Today I perceive it as a normal part of the entire fragrance composition. I like this too
In general, the perfume has a nice flow. Almost a bit stealthy, if you don't pay attention. From the fiery-fruity splash at the beginning of the journey, which is not exaggerated, even looks like a superimposed accident. The pepper then neatly merges into the spicy core of the fragrance. And quietly, but steadily reaches the base, where the mentioned tobacco paired with vanilla awaits us.

The scent doesn't seem too sweet. Not too spicy. There is no trace of a woody base here either. Nevertheless, it works and doesn't get the short end of the stick.

Spicebomb Extreme: There is not just fruit pulp in the top notes. You didn't just randomly pinch the middle of the fragrance. The base was also very precisely tuned And just between us perfume collectors. Spicebomb Extreme is a finely tuned modern homage to the 90s fragrance of Yves Saint Laurent - Opium Pour Homme.
It is reminiscent of a journey through the kitchens of the Orient and Occident. Take a bite here and a little bit there before the journey continues. The journey can start at any time. But it should last as long as possible. And it does. This perfume fulfills this wish. It's not a fast-way scent. It keeps its promises And so with each application I set out on the journey again. And there I love to be wherever the scent takes me
For me, Spicebomb Extreme is one of the "where I'd like to be" fragrances. It takes me to the remotest kitchens in the world. Places where people fulfill good and at the same time functional needs. Providing people's bellies with food and hearts with confidence, while the head comes to rest. A fragrance that takes me to places where cultures meet and exchange ideas.

Of course you can also wear the fragrance at Christmas. This perfume warms your heart. Who wouldn't want that in winter? But Spicebomb Extreme also works well on mild and warmer days without being obtrusive. Just like his secret role model, he is a connoisseur open to the world and the weather.

Which I can't quite figure out, which is supposed to be extreme here. I think the smell is just awesome. But it does not cross the threshold. Maybe it's about extreme commitment? Because this one does not give in. No matter what the weather. No matter if you're on the road in the city, at home or at work. The scent always fits somehow Spicebomb Extreme is one of those fragrances that my nose is directed at when I rediscover older fragrances and open up new ones. Not many perfumes have this status.

Perfect winter fragrance!
I love the og spicebomb and i love this one to. The vanilla here is to die for. Almost niche quality. So cozy, so powerful, so spicy, but creamy and well rounded. This one screams for winter. If you like spices, vanilla and tobacco, this is a must have in you collection. And if you own the OG, this is not a redundant purchase. They are different but both equally great. Try it, at least.

You want extreme? You get extreme!
Spicebomb extreme is the most reliable, long-lasting and best scent for winter in the designer faction. Everyone likes it, everyone can wear it, for any occasion and in any weather below 10°C.
As an amateur nose I can even smell many individual notes: allspice and cumin, moist tobacco, vanilla and cinnamon. Overall sweet and smooth. Extremely pleasant. Super shelf life and at least 4h of top silage.
Super price/performance. I can recommend it to everyone. I'm not going to go out on a limb and say it's a blind buy. But in principle every perfumery has the one in the assortment :D

A real Christmas bomb!
What else is there to say great...? If you want to smell the Christmas season, this is the right scent! You perceive cinnamon and tobacco the most... but in a positive way. Unfortunately I can't tolerate tobacco because of asthma. Durability and above all Sillage and Projection Hammer!

Conclusion: Do you want to smell like Christmas, but still be very masculine and interesting, and do you like perfumes that last..then this is the right perfume

Perfect Christmas Market fragrance
For me, this fragrance was love at first spray. This spicy, vanilla, tonka grenade. Immediately puts me in the Christmas mood and makes me want to bake cookies, Christmas markets and the wintertime.

For the summer I think the fragrance is completely unsuitable. I wouldn't use it in spring either, but autumn and winter, preferably with snow, are perfect for this fragrance.

The durability and silage of this fragrance are really very good. Three sprays should be enough, on a Christmas market maybe five. Because I like the scent so much, I like to spray it on a piece of cloth or similar and use it as a room scent in the wintertime. For about three days, a pleasant pinch of vanilla glory blows over from this fabric every now and then.

Quote from my roommate: "Dude, what smells so awesome all of a sudden? Are you baking something?"

Showdown in Spice Village
It became known from security circles that yesterday evening in Spice Village there were clashes between aggressively acting spices and security forces of the public order office and police.

According to initial information, some pimento and peppercorns had met in the open street. Immediately a violent verbal argument developed between the belligerent opponents, who were accompanied by some other spices.

Some cinnamon sticks of the public order office, which were by chance in the vicinity and rushed immediately, were able to prevent worse things at first and asked about the course of events.

"Ey, we're walking down the street here all chilly and want to visit some mates, here come these rags and start to occupy us," scolded an angry peppercorn. "Very chilled, my ass!" yelled a grain of peppercorn. "You'd taken up the whole pavement! And when we said to you that there was actually enough room for everyone, you spooned us up immediately!"

Shortly thereafter, the security forces of the vanilla police, previously summoned by passers-by, arrived and were able to defuse the charged situation through professional, present and de-escalating behaviour. Some tobacco leaves that had arrived in the meantime tried to disrupt the efforts of the security forces through provocative appearances and heckling. After a short time, however, they were sent off, which they complied with.

In the end, the forces of the Vanilla Police succeeded in making it clear to the opponents that the cinnamon sticks of the Office of Public Order and above all they themselves hold the monopoly of violence on the streets and squares in Spice Village. Nevertheless, they appealed to the spice grains present to do their part, especially in view of the upcoming Christmas, to ensure that peace, order and harmony are not lost - especially in the evening hours when we celebrate together, but also during the day in the offices and shops and on the streets of the city.

After the disputes ended, the security forces were able to leave the site. "Well, we would have straightened that out," said one vanilla pod to her colleague, "but for the next few hours we should drive along here from time to time "Well," he replied, "they'll be walking around here for another hour or two and then go home. "Jo", threw in a third vanilla pod after looking at the clock, "and in eight hours our shift will be over!

Wonder weapon for the winter
Spicebomb Extreme is currently the best winter scent in my collection. Despite the classic winter components, the fragrance does not become boring or one-sided, even though the scent is very peppery and "spicey" immediately after application.

After a good hour, however, the garnet from Viktor & Rolf unfolds its full beauty and depth: the vanilla gives the fragrance its sweetness, the tobacco combined with the pepper makes the scent appear masculine and interesting at the same time. Spicebomb Extreme invites you to retreat into the warmth on cold, uncomfortable days and spend time with the people who are dear to my heart.

For me, the fragrance has something loyal, something appreciative, something embracing. It's definitely not a fragrance I would wear during the day in everyday life - even if the fragrance does bring compliments.
The bottle is of high quality and innovative, although I must say that I do not consider Spicebomb to be particularly "explosive" and intrusive at all, but rather an inviting and intimate fragrance.

The only thing that can be said about the performance is that the fragrance projects excellently, lasts a long time and draws a beautiful silage behind it. As already mentioned several times, the pepper fades away over time and the sweetish note comes more to the fore

Too one-sided!
A typical winter scent for the cold season. You can smell the sweetness of vanilla strongly. Black pepper is also added. With a lot of effort I can also imagine the cinnamon dancing along. I miss the tobacco. This one could be a bit stronger. As last a light spice mixture comes through. All in all it is too linear for me. The development of this fragrance is too weak for me
Sillage and durability are extreme. I also like the flacon quite well.

Application area is for clear the winter. I imagine this fragrance at a Christmas market. Here it would be worn by a young adult who is classically into roasted almonds.

Warm impulse in cold times
Everyone knows these typical winter scents. They are strong, the silage wide, the performance almost endless and their character warm. Typical candidates? The One, Dior Homme Intense, Valentino Uomo and now I know that Spicebomb Extreme belongs to dazi too!
It's so nice to see what kind of aura Spicebomb is emitting. You can see how a heat camera perceives the sillage as a heat field in an unnatural way. I feel like a cup of hot coffee from which the brown gold is steaming.

Spicebomb Extreme keeps its promise, if you overdo it with the strong fragrance, or underestimate it, it becomes penetrating and disturbing. With such a cocktail two sprayers will be enough, at least that's my estimation after the first few tests
All in all a warm and spicy, oriental aura to spray. Smells incredibly seductive and knows how to impress.

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

I think that probably it has been reformulated. My bottle was from jan2020 and its been watered down. Opening just smells like alcohol.

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.
