There is no clear winner when it comes to the best cologne between Dior Homme Intense and Spicebomb. Both fragrances have unique scents that are perfect for any man who wants to make a good impression.
However, it ultimately comes down to personal preference and what smells the best on you. Dior Homme Intense has a woody, floral scent that is perfect for special occasions.
First Up: Spicebomb Extreme by Viktor & Rolf
Now, let’s turn up the heat with Spicebomb Extreme. As its name suggests, this fragrance explodes with spices. The opening is a bold mixture of black pepper and caraway, setting the stage for a spicy dance.
But it’s the heart of this cologne, the blend of lavender and tobacco, that truly makes it exceptional. Just when you think you’ve got a handle on its profile, the vanilla base note sweeps in, adding a seductive warmth and sweetness.
This is a fragrance that commands attention. It’s perfect for those cold winter nights when you need something to warm up the atmosphere.
Bold, brash, and unapologetic, Spicebomb Extreme is for the man who wants to make a fiery statement.
What Does Spicebomb Smell Like?
Notes include: tobacco, cumin, cinnamon, saffron, vanilla, bourbon?
Spicebomb Extreme is a newer cologne that was released in 2012. It has a spicy, fresh scent that is perfect for everyday wear. It is a lighter scent that is not as overpowering as Dior Homme Intense.
The fragrance is made up of top notes of grapefruit and bergamot, middle notes of chili pepper and cinnamon, and base notes of leather and tobacco.
I liked how fresh and reassuring it was on my skin, so I kept putting my nose to my wrist for another whiff.
Longevity, and Versatility (8-10hrs)
The first 4-5 hours of wearing Extreme covers a lot of space around you, but the great thing is it’s not super strong, so it will hang lightly in the air. However, as the day goes on it will be more light to moderate.
Longevity is awesome here, 10+ hours of wear. Seriously, this is one that I can spray on, and have it hang around for seemingly as long as I want it to. You’re going to shower at some point during the day, but Spicebomb Extreme should stick around until then.
This fragrance is most definitely a winter/fall scent, all the way through. It’s not something I’d want to put on when it’s hot or humid outside. Lightly worn at work may be appropriate. If you’re going to wear this, you’ll probably live in a temperate zone state or country. So living in the Caribbean, and wearing this cologne on a regular basis is probably a no-go… 🙂
I’d wear it during the day or on weekends. It’s very one-of-a-kind, regardless of the scent. There won’t be many guys wearing Spicebomb Extreme, because it isn’t a traditional fragrance.
It does have a certain sexiness to it, which only adds to its appeal. I think that this Viktor & Rolf creation is really an attractive option. I put it in the same class as, , except that Extreme has much better performance and no booziness.
Overall Impressions of Spicebomb Extreme
Overall, do I like Spicebomb Extreme? Yes, this stuff is fantastic, provided it fits your style. Again, a cold weather scent, so if you’re not in the right climate it won’t be great. Tobacco, vanilla, spices, and saffron/lavender.
If you want to feel attractive and at peace, I believe Spicebomb Extreme is a great choice. It can be worn most of the time in the fall and/or winter, and is versatile enough to express your friendly or romantic intentions.
