The almost smells of

Almost real genius.

Use to be one of my fav's but my nose has matured. It's spicy and seductive for an intense man I feel; someone with mad confidence. Smells solid with a decent performance and the ladies love it. My first scent that had a tabacco note which I like a lot.

I love this one so much. Warm, spicey with a hint of something animalistic (a musk or maybe the leather note). Perfect winter scent. I don't get much citrus from it personally, except maybe in the inital spritz. My sampler is almost done so I think i may have to get myself a bottle of this.

I love it on men. The spices are sweet without being cloying. And the grapefruit in the opening is delicious and fresh, before going to something warmer. It stays long on the skin, although you've got to be very close in order to smell it. Sillage is not good.

I was pleasantly surprised when I tired Spicebomb for the first time. The name suggests that this is going to be some nutmeg, clove and cinnamon fest; instead, this is a warm, rich, semisweet leather scent with a vanilla/Tonka undercurrent, even though those notes are not listed. Viktor & Rolf were having a little joke with this one—instead of being in the kitchen with one eye on the timer for your pumpkin pies and the other on the candy thermometer as you wait for the elusive hard ball stage, you are comfortably by the fire on a leather sofa smoking a pipe. Somewhere, at the other end of the house, someone may be cooking with spices in the kitchen, but it ain’t you. I get none of the citrus tops notes. The heart of elemi and pink pepper are evident right from the start and the leathery base of sweet pipe tobacco and wet vetiver are not too far behind. This smells warm and masculine without being too gourmand, nor is it as sweet as some of the other current offerings in this genre. Elemi is one of my favorite notes in perfumery and it is used well here, evoking a balm as opposed to a smoky incense note. Just the thing to wear in cooler weather with a ribbed turtleneck sweater and a suede jacket.

Review is for a 2015 bottle.

Spicebomb opens up with a fleeting but dominant bergamot note that overpowers any grapefruit or elemi. Pink pepper sits in the background before everything inevitably transforms to cinnamon.
At this point in the mids saffron joins cinammon and i find this the most pleasant part of this fragrance and it's probably because at this stage it reminds me of a favourite, Versace Man.
Where V man is complimented by cardamon, spicebomb sweetens from here, and the cinnamon rides on through to the base, sprinkling itself through the sweetish tobacco and soft leather.
Development through these stages is very swift and really denies any enjoyment of opening and heart before settling on that sweet base.
All up a pleasant scent but i suspect there are better in this genre. Where this bottle fails is that i get 1-2 hours moderate projection and 4 hours longevity before nothing.
Bomb indeed.
