    Default Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision Eau de Parfum (2020)

    Apparently there's now an EdP flanker of this one!

    Anyone tried it yet? I didn't see it listed in the new summer 2020 releases thread.

    Top notes: Grapefruit, Green Apple, Lemon, Black Spices, Cardamon
    Heart notes:Rosemary, Clary Sage, Coriander, Lentisk, Lavender, Peppermint
    Base notes: Patchouli, Cedarwood, Pistachio, Incense Resinoid, Peru Balm, Fir Balsam, Labdanum, Benzoin



    "Prepare to turn heads with Spicebomb Night Vision Eau de Parfum, the intense, seductive, and mysterious fragrance for men by Viktor&Rolf. Dial up the intensity with this masculine oriental fougere perfume, which unleashes an electric freshness of Black Spices, vibrant green aromatics, and the fiery warmth of Incense.

    For those who have tried Spicebomb Night Vision Eau De Toilette, the new Eau De Parfum is a deeper, richer scent.

    Experience an explosion of fresh top notes, with zesty Lemon injecting a burst of freshness into spicy Black Pepper, Chilli, Nutmeg, and Clove. This cool initial impression develops into a green aromatic heart of Clary Sage, Lentisk, and Coriander, infusing the fragrance with a warm masculine strength. Finally, this addictive perfume offers deep, sensual base notes of smoky Incense and rich Fir Balsam, which intensify the scent and leave a long-lasting and powerful trail.

    As night falls, the iconic Spicebomb grenade bottle is reimagined in deep black glass with an electric green stripe. The most intense fragrance in the Spicebomb collection, for men who desire something different."

    I kept reading how subpar the regular EDT Night Vision was maybe they made it better in this new EDP one can only hope.

    I'm normally not one to dismiss a scent unsniffed; but I'm not going to seek this one out. I did not like the EDT version of this at all.

    I've never tried Night Vision EdT flanker. What I've read, it's underwhelming to say the least. Maybe the EdP will be good.

    I remember I went in to a Sephora inside a JC Penny to just smell around, and a particularily attractive SA said, "Hey, you know what one I really like? The new Victor and Rolf we got in." I looked over and it was Spicebomb Night Vision. I just politely said, "Oh, okay. I'll check that one out. " and walked away. Id already smelled it, its wretched. The original and extreme are pretty good (though a bit strong), this one is bad. I gotta assume she was just spouting salesy stuff.
    I smell.

    I'll certainly try it when I see it.

    I hated the original EdT of this, but I'd sniff it just to know what's up.

    I feel like I should clarify, this was a story about the edt of Night Vision. I was saying the original Spicebomb normal, and Extreme versions are pretty good, and that the Night Vision EDT was bad. Haven't smelled the newest Night Vision EDP, and I am exactly 0% excited to try it.
    I smell.

    Night Vision is absolutely awful Invictus type of fragrance.
    Agree that the regular Spicebomb is good.

    The original is good. Everything else, I don't like at all.

    Does V&R have anything else worthwhile outside of their Spicebombs? That's all I have ever seen by them. Is anything else from their house any good?

    They have only Spicebombs in their line.

    They had Antidote many years ago, that was discontinued.

    I disliked the original but love the edp version, I found the edt of Nightvision too short lived on my skin, I will definitely check out the edp.

    I will definitely sample it, but after the EDT disaster I am not expecting much.

    I like Spicebomb and Extreme. I didn’t realize there was a flanker of it. So when I started reading this thread, I was curious to try it. After reading the responses, I am no longer interested.

    Good call. Still, the new Parfum flanker to Night Vision could be different.
