Tobacco Vanilla Bomb
After a test in the local perfumery about 2 years ago never let out of my head, then on my 20th birthday finally bought: in my eyes for the money the best autumn and winter fragrance. Sweet, spicy ( though not as much as you'd imagine from the name "Spicebomb Extreme") and just delicious. The first time I wore it, on the first chilly day of September, I was directly approached by a friend who said I smelled like apple strudel. And I've gotten this comment several times now, so that seems to be at least partially true, because I personally smell mostly tobacco and a healthy dose of vanilla, the association with the dessert hardly comes up for me. So for others an apple strudel, for me sweet tobacco with vanilla and spices. In any case Christmassy, is also often mentioned, just like the bombastic durability, on my skin Ü10 hours are no problem, the charisma is also very good with 3-3.5 hours and also quite far, you are perceived whether you want or not :). From the fourth hour's with me is gradually more and more a skin-scent, but honestly for me personally also the most beautiful part, for the evening to sit at the table and smell now and then on the sprayed hand ( yes, otherwise I'm actually quite normal) is really a treat for the sense of smell. Thinking of buying a second one despite my 90ml grenade, should this fragrance ever be discontinued. Clear buy recommendation!

"Winter is Coming"
By far the best winter perfume in this universe. The 1st spray will give you Christmasvibes en mase. The scent is very room filling and the longevity is out of this world. 13 + hours and a sillage of about 4 hours are easy inside. Komplimentgetter high 10. You do not have to pay 300 € for luxury niche, if you get for about 50-60 a fragrance that easily puts its competitors in the shade.
In short: horny perfume, mega durability, many compliments, horny Bottledesign, hammer price

Tom Ford Noir Extreme says hello
As one described, I find that the fragrance has great similarity to TF NE, the Christkindlstand and Christmas feelings, even winter mood come to me with the fragrance so zero. I see myself there rather well dressed in club with the fragrance. Clearly more potent than the TF, not quite as sweet and a slightly spicier welcome. A strong and great fragrance at a fair price.

Christmas Dinner
Smells like walking into a freshly prepared Christmas dinner, it's so cozy. Warm, soft spice, slightly powdery, great blend of tobacco and vanilla and cinnamon. Took me forever to even try it, because I didn't think I liked spicy fragrances and the name obviously put me off, but I eventually did because of the hype and I was so immediately enamored that I had to buy the bottle. Strong performance with moderate projection for 3-4hr, skin scent for 10-12hr.

And if you don't thnk the bottle is cool, you're entitled to your opinion but it's wrong.

Absolute price-performance winner
For the price just top. You definitely smell the cinnamon out what gives you such a pre-Christmas vibe. Even if some say that he smells like the spice cabinet of their mother I find that okay. After all, there are a lot of spicy notes in there too but they harmonize very well with each other. Sillage is in the upper mediocre and the durability leaves with 6-7 h for a designer fragrance and the price also nothing to be desired. If you are looking for a fragrance for a cozy winter evening is exactly the right for you. In addition, I find the spray head for a fragrance of this price range really not bad. Comes from the sprayer almost to Dior.

The winter grenade
The iconic Granantenflakon was known to me for a long time, but despite a certain preference for wintry and oriental fragrances, he triggered long no attraction in me to test him. Finally, I got an offer in the souk, which I could not refuse. As often described, this spice bomb is very cinnamon-heavy, through the sweetness also a very cozy and warming fragrance. These criteria are often described as suitable for the colder seasons, I personally wear fragrances when I feel like it, no matter what time of year. So do not be alarmed if in the summer a fragrance cloud Spicebomb passes by ;).
Back to the scent: cinnamon dominates here from top to base. Tobacco, amber and vanilla are also recognizable notes in the base. Cumin... uh yeah, I don't know. I myself do not really smell out.

In summary, what we have here is a comfortingly warm spice creation that is, in my eyes, well wearable for both sexes. Who likes cinnamon, may also like to order this fragrance blind. H&S are super, perhaps because of this more suitable for leisure than for work. The bottle is very "chav", but is Mal what different. I like him.
I can only recommend everyone to at least try this fragrance - he deserves it.

Gourmandish spicy winter scent
So this is it, the grenade! My first blind buy and I was definitely not disappointed:

The opening literally slays you (in a positive sense) with vanilla, cinnamon and pepper. With me, the fragrance then remains similar for 8-10 hours, so it is a very straightforward scent progression.

What makes this fragrance really exciting is the yet very present pepper / cumin note. Thus, SPICEBOMB Extr. smells not only gourmandish sweet, but also a little animalic.

The bottle looks great, but is due to its plastic attachment / spray head unfortunately only a 8.5 of 10.

H/S are absolutely bombastic, as expected no other way.

An absolute must-have for fans of sweet winter fragrances

"Full Grenade Renate, Renate, Renate...."
For all impatient, the review starts visibly below)

Moin all you dear perfumos and perfumas out there. I hope you are well.

First of all, I would like to apologize to all the Renates out there for my clumsy headline. Feel free to send any complaints directly to [email protected] The colleagues at Torfrock will take care of it. :-) There, by the way, all Bernhards with jackhammer phobia may express their displeasure.

But now to the seriousness of life. :-) I would like to apologize personally to Embla. For the legendary day before yesterday, I finally decided against your recommendation and the Tom Ford. Instead, the Spicebomb Extreme may now forever be a very special fragrance in my collection. :-)

For all who are just wondering what I'm actually talking about here. The day before yesterday, FC Hansa Rostock played and for this game 7500 spectators were allowed. I was one of the lucky ones. And I asked which scent I should put on best. Embla recommended Tobacco Vanilla. And I said that's it.

What can I say? Two hours before kickoff, it had to go fast. And I reached almost blindly into the shelf. And decided on the Spicebomb Extreme.

The end of the story? A Corona miracle tale. At 15.22 clock sounded the final whistle. Hansa was finally promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga after a nail-biter after more than 9 years. At the same time all dams broke for 7500 people in the stadium - and at least as many people in front of it - and there was no stopping them. Pure joy, strangers in each other's arms. A whole city celebrating. Including the mayor. Hours later thousands of people on the market place. In the middle of it all - the team. And all this in the middle of these Corona times.

It was almost like the old days. And I hope for all of us that we now finally leave this madness piece by piece behind us. Yesterday was indescribable. It felt as if events like this happened decades ago. And I hope that we can all celebrate again soon. In the stadium, in the club, at concerts and festivals or just in the party cellar or the garage. Because it's exactly these moments that make a life worth living.

And the fragrance that will forever remind me of this unforgettable day in the future is the Spicebomb Extreme. So let's see how this fragrance is doing. Don't worry, he doesn't get a promotion bonus. :-) he's been good before too, but let's take it one step at a time, so - let's get started. :-)

The bottle: 8/10

Okay, I admit - the pacifist in me is screaming "what the hell?", but honestly? The scent is called Spicebomb......and it's a bottle. Actually, I think it's a nice idea and it just goes to show that the fragrance is a "grenade". The bottle is valuable, is very good in the hand, filling level recognizable. Criticism: I personally find the sprayer catastrophic. Much too large and very badly dosable.

The fragrance: 9/10

What a firecracker. The fragrance starts directly and without restraint. A hefty portion of spices fly one around the ears. I do myself here relatively difficult to filter the individual components. Pepper and cinnamon, however, you can definitely perceive independently. The saffron provides a good counterpoint with its slight bitterness. A slightly sweet-tart citrus (grapefruit?) is also noticeable in the attack, but without any freshness. The name Spicebomb Extreme is to be taken really literally in the prelude. I give you the good tip not to hold your nose too close to the perfumed area, because then the scent is actually exhausting and seems a bit overloaded. But it isn't. By the way, the top and heart notes blend directly together in the opening. The course is quite linear at the beginning. But out the back he turns then but again and becomes much softer.

For this clearly provide the tobacco (for me a bright, mild tobacco) and especially the great vanilla. Really great cinema and for me clearly rounder than the original Spicebomb.

Short form: At the start really an almost supercharged spice explosion, which is transformed by tobacco and vanilla in a real flatterer and then at the end becomes increasingly sweeter and softer without ever losing its serious, adult character. Dreamlike!

Durability: 9/10

So 9 hours holds the loosely through. However, he is not THE beast to which he is often made here. For a designer but clearly above average.

Sillage: 8/10

The first two hours really room-filling if you exaggerate. But even in the hours 2-4 still well perceptible. Then, however, also this fragrance is relatively close to the skin. But four hours are already more than decent. Also here above average.

Wearability: 6.5/10

The fragrance is probably the epitome of a classic autumn / winter fragrance. Temperatures above 10 degrees I would avoid. Below that, however, almost always applicable. Office? Well-dosed in the winter also goes. Date? Club? Wouldn't be my first choice but I'm sure it's okay. Unisex? Sure, but by the spices and the tobacco already very rich and anything but soft or feminine. Oh and do you know what the scent also goes great with? To the promotion party in the stadium. Since I speak from experience. ;-)

Compliments: 7/10

Here it depends on the spray amount and the proximity of the nose to the stall. :-)

Too dense it could be a bit penetrating. But otherwise, the scent brings at least with me only good feedback. At work, people found the almost all great. And the fragrance stands out just in the prelude. My wife loves it, but again only when we are out and about. Cuddling on the couch it is not her favorite. The scent needs a little "distance". Nevertheless, all in all a very pleasing fragrance.

Price / performance: 8/10

That fits already. 90ml cost about 75.00€ and this price is absolutely fine for this quality.

Conclusion:

The name Spicebomb Extreme is really program here. The fragrance really starts with an extreme spice explosion and then becomes more beautiful and balanced by tobacco and vanilla without losing its power. P/L okay. H/S definitely above average for a designer. You don't have to like the bottle, but except for the sprayer, I really like it. Viktor & Rolf really brought a winter banger to the market here and created a unique and great fragrance. I love it and in the designer segment, there aren't many winter scents that can hold a candle to this one! Do you like spicy scents? Then you can buy blind.

For me, this fragrance will always be linked to a very special day in the future. I would never have thought it possible two weeks ago to experience an ascension celebration with thousands of people. And I hope that we can all experience such happy and great moments in life together again as soon as possible. Without masks, without distance. Then we are also smelled maybe times again :-P

On that note, stay sane everyone and hang in there a little longer. Enjoy every day. And never stop laughing and loving. There is nothing more important!

As always hans(a)eatic greetings ⚓

Spicy winter wonder
Who can do something with sweet, spicy scents, which must have tested this one at least. Cinnamon and vanilla geppart with various other spices, especially the pepper is clearly perceptible to me. The sillage and especially the durability are incredible, the latter with me easily 10+ hours and survives in doubt even a shower. What a power. I personally like it even better than the highly praised (and by no means bad) PdM Layton. Now considering the lower price in comparison, Spicebomb Extreme is my clear favorite for winter. In autumn it also works great, for spring and summer it is definitely nothing. Because of the growing popularity and the associated distribution, I'm not worried, because unlike other bestsellers such as Versace Eros or Creed Aventus (including clones) I have never smelled this fragrance anywhere

To be used with caution
This fragrance is as the name suggests extreme and that in every respect. This is what the durability and projection of course advantageous. Two sprays keep me loose twelve hours including shower. Unfortunately, the extremely sweet vanilla scent is not for everyone and can be quite intrusive. Spicebomb is ideally suited for a long winter day outdoors, where it gives a cozy feeling without scaring away the environment by its penetrance

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