"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 ⚓

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.

Showdown in Spice Village
It became known from security circles that yesterday evening in Spice Village there were clashes between aggressively acting spices and security forces of the public order office and police.

According to initial information, some pimento and peppercorns had met in the open street. Immediately a violent verbal argument developed between the belligerent opponents, who were accompanied by some other spices.

Some cinnamon sticks of the public order office, which were by chance in the vicinity and rushed immediately, were able to prevent worse things at first and asked about the course of events.

"Ey, we're walking down the street here all chilly and want to visit some mates, here come these rags and start to occupy us," scolded an angry peppercorn. "Very chilled, my ass!" yelled a grain of peppercorn. "You'd taken up the whole pavement! And when we said to you that there was actually enough room for everyone, you spooned us up immediately!"

Shortly thereafter, the security forces of the vanilla police, previously summoned by passers-by, arrived and were able to defuse the charged situation through professional, present and de-escalating behaviour. Some tobacco leaves that had arrived in the meantime tried to disrupt the efforts of the security forces through provocative appearances and heckling. After a short time, however, they were sent off, which they complied with.

In the end, the forces of the Vanilla Police succeeded in making it clear to the opponents that the cinnamon sticks of the Office of Public Order and above all they themselves hold the monopoly of violence on the streets and squares in Spice Village. Nevertheless, they appealed to the spice grains present to do their part, especially in view of the upcoming Christmas, to ensure that peace, order and harmony are not lost - especially in the evening hours when we celebrate together, but also during the day in the offices and shops and on the streets of the city.

After the disputes ended, the security forces were able to leave the site. "Well, we would have straightened that out," said one vanilla pod to her colleague, "but for the next few hours we should drive along here from time to time "Well," he replied, "they'll be walking around here for another hour or two and then go home. "Jo", threw in a third vanilla pod after looking at the clock, "and in eight hours our shift will be over!

Pepper cinnamon bomb
I have tested this fragrance a few times, as well as the 1 Million Prive from Paco Rabanne.
I think both are very good because they are very similar.
Finally chose V&R. He's a little nobler.
The bottle alone is an eye-catcher.
Now for the fragrance itself:
It starts spicy, strong and round.
About an hour later it becomes softer and sweeter.
Tobacco I rather take was less.
Vanilla, on the other hand, comes out well.
The fragrance is very well rounded for my taste.
It has power, lasts longer on my skin,
than the Paco Rabanne 1 million Prive,
so I take in yet the next day on the clothes was.
Rather something for the cold season, like actually most, which I like.
I'll give you 8 out of 10.

Advent Advent, the Spicebomb is on fire!
Yes, there must be some fun and if you think you can find some deadly words here, you are at the wrong perfume!

Unfortunately a statement is not enough to describe the Christmas miracle you can get here.
Starting with the bottle.
He's hoping for action, adrenaline, and man's toys. Very noble, black and if you buy 90ml, certainly big enough so that even real men do not look like little children.
The sapwood here is made of plastic, but doesn't bother me personally at all, but the bottle itself is pretty heavy.
So I take the safety off and immediately spray the hero's water on my neck and my jaw folds into the bottomless depths.
Who thinks he's gonna be a Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt or Bruce Willis, WRONG!
Congratulations, you're a baked apple now!
I just can't describe it any other way. This fragrance is not at all what you associate with the performance, but I am not disappointed.
The spice explosion at least lives up to its name and if the bottle were a baked apple, it would be THE Christmas perfume no.1!
Lots of cinnamon, super pleasant vanilla and lots of delicious things in the background, where I can imagine everything except the grapefruit. Pepper doesn't bother, tobacco smells only after 4 or 5 hours and rather in a chocolaty way.
It also doesn't look sharp at all, as if you would hold your nose in a bag of cloves or cinnamon, rather soft and sweetish.
Smelling like food is not nice, neither fryer fat nor roast goose.
Spicebomb Extreme still makes you feel comfortable. Man is not sexy, man is to bite on.
The performance is madness and even after 8 hours it is still as present as after 2.

There's only one minus point, and that's his raison d'être. Who wants to smell like baked apple except in December? After the holidays most people are tired of the smells, can't see the Christmas tree anymore and want to switch back to a healthy diet and if it's only enough for 2 weeks.
The Advent season belongs to the Spicebomb Extreme and then it comes back to the back of the shelf.

The opening is very spicy with a strong pepper and saffron. Then the tobacco takes place, blended with the sweet vanilla and the cinnamon.

I think that probably it has been reformulated. My bottle was from jan2020 and its been watered down. Opening just smells like alcohol.
