Sensual cherry seduction
What a fragrance! A real surprise for me, as I tend to be less comfortable with fruity fragrances, but I really wanted to find a cherry scent that wasn't too marzipan-y, too synthetic or too sweet.
My sample arrived and it was love at first sniff.

The fragrance starts off slightly cherry liqueur-like, which very quickly develops into a lovely little cherry fruit tartness that makes my mouth water and won't let me get off my wrist.
This cheeky cherry is embedded in a great caramelly sweetness that reminded me of the caramel in Rendez-vous à Milan. However, the sweetness is not sticky, but warming and sensual.
As the fragrance progresses, it becomes a little softer and more cuddly, but not clearly perceptible to me or those around me.
The cheeky fruitiness recedes somewhat and merges with the warm, dark sweetness to form an embrace that has an almost erotic aura.

The fragrance lasts on my skin for about 8-10 hours, the projection becomes a little less after about 4 hours. I can imagine it more in the cooler months, but will also do a summer date night test when it's warmer again.

I see the fragrance more on a woman. A seductive, self-confident, strong woman who knows what she wants.

A clear candidate for purchase, a very unusual fragrance with a high recognition value, which will probably soon have a permanent place in my collection.

Thanks for reading! To all femme fatales: get this fragrance. Even though it's completely different, it gives me the same sexiness as Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette or Dior Addict (2014) Eau de Parfum, just with this cheeky cherry.

The plump, dark Amarena cherry ...
Cherry fragrances are all the rage at the moment ... But this creation is different in my eyes ... SPECIAL!

Far better than the cherry fragrances we already know.

At the beginning, the sweet, dark Amarena cherry and the red fruits come out beautifully and develop further in the heart with a hint of salted caramel and vanilla ice cream twist as well as sugar.

Amber, rose, ylang-ylang and tonka bean bring the cherry sweetness forward beautifully and create a wonderful development of the fragrance. However, I definitely don't find it too sweet.

You definitely get noticed and the longevity is also good (about 8 hours for me). So far, I have only received positive comments from people around me.

However, I think you should feel your way around the spray quantity, as it is very expressive.
In my opinion, everyone can wear what they want. However, I would classify this fragrance as unisex, but more feminine.

The price-performance ratio is excellent in my opinion! For a moderate price, you get a fantastic fragrance for cooler days.

I think Simone Andreoli has brought out some great creations that you really have to check out.

Memories of Papa's Langnese Cremissimo Amarena sundae
After Marc Gebauer praised this fragrance a few times in his Instagram story, and I can (mostly) blindly trust him when it comes to perfume, I decided to do some research on it.

Just reading it made my mouth water, at least metaphorically speaking.
Amarena cherry? Salted caramel? Red fruits? Tonka? Vanilla cream? Rose? - "Damn boy, f** yes!" I thought to myself and quickly ordered a bottle.

It arrived and what can I say, it blew me away. I'm a big lover of cherry scents in a perfume anyway - but with the Vicebomb, Mr. Simone Andreoli has done his homework better than anyone else.

As others have already mentioned, the fragrance starts off very boozy - although there is an alcoholic note in the direction of rum (in my opinion), the Amarena cherry is clearly in the foreground, and that throughout.
In the background, however, all of the above-mentioned "ingredients" hit the nose, but I don't see this as negative. Fortunately, the rose is very restrained and does not push itself to the fore as it does in the Montale fragrances. It develops into a really "delicious", creamy fragrance that is not too overpowering.

If you're asking yourself "What's with the title now?": It reminds me of my childhood, as Amarena was my father's absolute favorite ice cream flavor. When I smell this scent, I see myself sitting on the sofa with him - he with the whole Langnese Cremissimo tub in his hand, and me with my little children's bowl with 2 scoops that he graciously gave me (and Knight Rider is on TV). Well, enough personal stuff, back to the scent:

Vicebomb is a true compliment-getter. I'm certainly not a womanizer (only because I'm taken, of course), but it still goes down very well with most women. The sillage is very present, especially in the first 3-4 hours, and it easily lasts 8-10 hours minimum for me. In my opinion, the fragrance is wearable for both women and men.

Simone Andreoli has one more fan and admirer in me.

Cherry rose
The fragrance starts off extremely boozy, with an Amarena cherry that has been soaked in alcohol for too long. Fortunately, this quickly fades and a beautiful amarena cherry note remains, delicately dipped in caramel. However, this cherry note is also somewhat "biting". The whole thing then melts into a really beautiful fragrance complex. If you read the fragrance notes like this, you might think you're in for an overwhelming gourmand, but as it progresses, it becomes more fruity, which gives the fragrance its heavy, think that the rose also brings some freshness here (you can smell it quite a bit).

I don't usually like rose too much, but here it's a beautiful fresh rose. This combination makes the fragrance more wearable in my opinion, I don't necessarily see the fragrance only in winter or fall.
I also don't think the fragrance is a pure gourmand scent. In terms of progression, the fragrance is rather sweet, fruity and slightly floral.
I see the fragrance as more feminine.

Found (the) Cherry
First of all, I would like to apologize for the uncreative headline, although a direct comparison with Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum is of course not very far-fetched, as Vicebomb is touted on YouTube and the like as the "better Lost Cherry".

However, the following review is not intended to be a 1:1 comparison between the two fragrances, but rather a tribute to this masterpiece of fragrance. Nevertheless, I cannot avoid including Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum in the conclusion.

UPDATE
The Vicebomb starts off cherry, creamy, sweet - and, like the previous speakers, reminds me a little of cream ice cream with Amarena, or, in my case, of that classic vanilla quark with cherry compote that you could buy pre-packaged and just had to stir well before enjoying. The Amarena cherry preserved in syrup is extremely present in the opening, but is duly accompanied by these creamy and vanilla notes. The vanilla cream, which I can only clearly smell in the opening, is lush, rich and highly calorific. Like the pickled cherry, it is strongly perceptible, but these two components do not fight each other, but complement each other and merge into a wonderful melange.
I personally only smell salted caramel (where is the salt here, please?) or red fruits very, very, very cautiously and with a great deal of imagination - which does not detract from the masterpiece, however, but clearly positions it in the "cherry fragrance" range. And if I can smell any "red fruits" in the distance, they are very overripe and generously candied.

HEARTNOTE
Some time after the opening - and we are actually talking about 1.5 - 2 hours here - the Vicebomb develops further from the sweet-creamy fragrance and becomes even more cherry-like for me and, thanks to a liqueur-like note, also significantly edgier and darker. From this moment on, the fragrance also becomes wearable and extremely attractive for me as a man. And if it wasn't for this gigantic heart note, this blind buy would probably have gone into my wife's collection.
The heart note of Vicebomb reminds me in a certain way very strongly of the opening Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum - albeit without bitter almond, but in the form of a deep black, overripe cherry that is no longer preserved in sugar syrup, but in cherry liqueur.
Far, far away, you can possibly "sense" a rose, although this requires a lot of imagination. First and foremost, I can really only smell the dark cherry, the liqueur and, later in the heart note, a little more cherry brandy.
At best, there is only a small hint of the creamy, sweet and vanilla cream curd, which causes the fragrance to "drift" in a dark, deep and very distinctive direction, but in the most positive way.
The heart note lasts a good 5 to 6 hours on my skin, which I personally really like. I would like to go into more detail about the longevity and the different notes at the end.

BASE
After we have already spent a good 7 to 8 hours together, another transformation takes place that I find really stunning: the dark, liqueur-like notes gradually give way from the heart note described above and go in a much lighter, completely contrary direction:
In the end, it is the cherry that can at best still be guessed at - it has handed over the sceptre to the sugar. And by that I mean snow-white granulated sugar that you have just bought in a health food store and are now opening the packaging. It smells dry as dust, deeply sweet and slightly earthy.
There are woody notes in the background, but they don't steal the show from the sugar. For me, the sugar in this fragrance is the most beautiful realization that can happen to the note "sugar": There is less focus on the taste of sugar on the tongue and more on the smell of fresh sugar from the paper packet; you think you can perceive and smell the individual crystals in your mind's eye.
The wood plays a very subordinate, but not insignificant role: it is noble, dried for many decades, smells only subtly in the background and brings tart, deep notes into the base notes.
I hardly notice any tonka, the cherry is still minimally present in the background, the vanilla cream long since eaten up.
This base lingers on the skin until the next wash, but the next morning it is merely a beautiful skinscent that you can only perceive if you are very close to the person wearing it.

LONGEVITY
As mentioned above, the fragrance with its wonderful base note lasts on the skin until the next shower.
The real magic happens on my CLOTHING - even the next day (more than 24 hours after application) I can still perceive the heart note: deep black cherries, preserved in alcohol-rich cherry liqueur. Hardly any sweetness, hardly any creaminess, no sugar. At best, a few dust-dry woods, but even that is only very far in the background.

SILLAGE
The fragrance is extremely strong, especially at the beginning, but never takes over the whole room, but stays within 1 to 2 arm lengths at most. I wore the fragrance yesterday and found the sillage to be very pleasant and not annoying. My wife confirmed this. In the heart note, the fragrance is still present, but only clearly perceptible at a maximum of one arm's length. In the base, i.e. when the sugar unfolds its effect, the fragrance recedes further and further and is "only" a skin scent the next morning.

And as I mentioned at the beginning, as a supposed "Tom Ford disciple", I naturally can't help but draw a comparison with Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum in the CONCLUSION - and award the trophy here to Vicebomb by a huge margin.
in my eyes, Vicebomb is the clear winner in a race that never happened. The fragrance is independent enough not to pass as a copy or dupe, and yet for me the fragrance has a certain character of Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum at its heart - simply "better".
As far as performance and longevity are concerned, we don't need to discuss this any further at this point, but for me the development of the fragrance is exactly what I would define as a masterpiece: beyond any straightforwardness, perfectly coordinated, not at all intrusive and the notes complement each other perfectly.

Some people have said that the fragrance goes in a feminine direction - I cannot and would not confirm this. Yes, it is creamy-vanilla-sweet and light at the beginning, but becomes deeply dark in the heart and sugary-earthy-dry in the base. For me, the epitome of "unisex".
However, if it smells too "feminine", here's a tip for LAYERING: Use Tuscan Leather Eau de Parfum (2 sprays) as a base and Vicebomb (1 - 2 sprays) on top - thank you later. :)

Smells exactly like cherry halls or cough syrup to me. The cherry is very synthetic and is very sweet with a medicinal undertone. Not a fan
