Viktor and Rolf’s Spicebomb is enough to draw the eye as you browse the shelf. Spicebomb is a proper name if only for the container: a bottle fit to look like a hand grenade. Perhaps not as elegant as the head of Medusa, or the all gold bottle of the 1 Million fragrance, but still effective, and certainly representative of the scent that you are getting.

 The fragrance is spicy and full unique scent, perfect fit for the man who is confident and wants to get well-received attention. You will be getting amazing compliments with this peppery and cinnamon fragrance! A robust scent that will stand out that the ladies will love. Except for the spiciness, it has some sweet base notes of tobacco.

Longevity of Spicebomb

Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb’s performance is okay. Apply it on your chest, wrist, and neck, and you can expect at least 5-6 hours of it. It not amazing compared to other fragrances, so definitely worth pointing out. You might expect a spicy scent like this would hold longer than that. We would consider it in the average-lasting category, after that the smell is more noticeable in close encounters.

The projection and sillage are excellent at first but decrease rapidly after that. So projection could be slightly better as well, count at around 1-2 hours of great projection. So might want to reapply this fragrance during the occasion or day-to-day situations.


If you like scents that have some spiciness to it, this could be your next signature fragrance! It versatile as of being manly and robust, you could wear it on most occasions. It’s not a very sweet scent as you might have assumed. Instead, it will breathe confidence of its wearer.

Spicebomb Smell & Notes

It’s a pleasant, light and refreshing scent that is quite non-offensive. The big mix of different notes works well together, and no specific note stands out over the other, it really is a spice mix to say at least. In short; Spicebomb is a modern masterpiece created by a well-known perfumer called Olivier Polge.


Obviously, it is a spicy fragrance. The spicy component of this scent is made up of pepper cinnamon, leather, and tobacco. The peppery cocktail creates a charged, seductive scent that offers a brilliantly bold option for most occasion.

Like many of the colognes that we have smelled can fit most situations, but given how bold and unique it is, it may favor special occasions more than it does time in the office. However, if sprayed with casuion you are good to go!
