Thread: Viktor & Rolf SPICEBOMB
I'm really starting to warm up to this bottle. At first I found it gimmicky and ill-advised, but the more I see it the more I like it. Of course, the deciding factor will be the fragrance...
I am pumped about this.....Can't wait to give this a test run!!!
When you order this online, you better hope they don't scan your package.
Flowerbomb Extreme is a good V&R female frag that doesn't get enough love. Here's hoping that Spicebomb doesn't suck.
Definite try. Is that Viktor and Rolf sitting on the couch?
that bottle could cause problems at customs lol
Sounds interesting at the very least.
I love the notes, and I love the poster. Am I crazy when I see the bottle and think that SpiceBomb looks like Frederic Malle when it was young, full of strength and muscle? :P
l like V&R antidote and I think there is nothing wrong with their new fragrance!
Nothing new or special in notes but I think the notes are really good! specially cinnamon and tobacco which I love.
I like the bottle too!
I will try this guys
I am a huge fan of Flowerbomb and was greatly disappointed by Antidote. I wanted Antidote to be for men what Flowerbomb is for women. Could Spicebomb be the answer? Only time will tell...Definite must try for me.
I lost all interest when I saw the nose was Olivier Polge. Blah.
More notes and information on this is available at Fragrantica.
lawl @ all comments so far.
If they can deliver a GOOD tobacco note I might be interested.
here's the full notes list:
Top notes: bergamot, grapefruit, elemi, pink pepper
Heart: cinnamon, saffron, chili
Base: leather, tobacco, vetiver
Perfumer: Olivier Polge

I can't believe $95.00 for the large spray. I still feel this is going to be a very refined scent from V&R being more of skin scent - there is no way VR have the balls to create something with the heady sillage that Flowerbomb has for man.
I am hoping for a Man's version of Flowerbomb.....I still can't wait to sample this that's for sure!!!
Well it looks like this is going to be released on the 23rd Jan and is going to be in Harrods. I like spicy fragrances and this is on my radar to try in the new year. I just hope with a name like spicebomb that the scent lives up to it.
I am actually really excited to try this. Its intriguing to see how the male counterpart of such an iconic women's fragrance turns out. I am also starting to enjoy spicey and more "interesting" fragrances more and more, so I am pumped about this!
Well, the way is wait to try this! I hope it could be all i expect for!
I just wonder what side of "spice" this will fall on? Something unique and dangerous (see Mugler's Taste of Fragrance), or something that smells generic. Judging by the perfumer, I'd be led to believe it might be on the bland side.
Although, with a name like Spicebomb - it better be effing interesting.
I actually sampled this today from a "lab sample" at Nordstrom's. My favorite SA saw me and had to share this one. First impression? Nice, a little spicy but not the bomb I expected from the name. Could definitely smell the cinnamon and pepper. The dry-down seems clean, maybe even a tiny little bit "soapy", but in a good way. I was given a sample and will need to give this a proper wearing before I can decide, but this may be a good one. My review is tainted because I wore Black Aoud today so I am not really smelling the Spicebomb that much! LOL
