Every now and again I have to have one of these crazy obsession, I keep finding few things that will strike my attention and I will go on for weeks on obsessing over them. This month’s obsession is the new fragrance by Viktor & Rolf; “Spicebomb“.
Made famous by the female counterpart “Flowerbomb“, this new fragrance totally swept off my feet! But let’s go on order.
I’ve been given few samples/testers by one of the lovely ladies working in Debenhams as my friend Tessa made a good purchase investing on a new perfume, and what a surprise.
As soon as I got out the shop, I was way too tempted in trying the sample on my skin and didn’t waste time on spraying it on me. It wasn’t love right away, I thought it was a bit too spicy.
I could actually smell the pink pepper mixed with grapefruit, but It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with it, few other notes came alive and…. 25 mins later I knew Spicebomb was going to be mine.
Spicebomb has been in stores since March 2012 and it’s available in most department stores in the UK and around the globe; the fragrance is meant to be spicy, woody and oriental.
I can definetely smell the spice and the wood but I can also sense a bit of powderness/sweetness in it, which makes it at times a bit feminine as well.
The top notes include Bergamot, Pink pepper and grapefruit. Red pepper, cinnamon and tobacco lay inside the cocktail of spices as the bottom notes.
Viktor Horsting said: “We were jealous of all the women who had Flowerbomb, and we wanted to have our own bomb.” Rolf Snoeren added: “We felt that if flowers were a very typical feminine scent, spices were the masculine opposite.”
The fragrance is available in 50 and 90 ml Eau de toilette for £45 and £60 and can be found in store or online at Debenhams.com
