Scented: Blow the Competition Away with Viktor&Rolf’s Spicebomb


The House of Viktor&Rolf has been an underlying favourite of mine. Always presenting exciting and dramatized fashion – much like myself – they have ensured I’m thoroughly entertained. On arrival of their first fragrance, Antidote, the first of their men’s fragrances, I was a little underwhelmed. It smelt great, but a little too much like Prada Homme for me. Then they launched the grenade.



Viktor&Rolf’s Spicebomb is just that - a bottle of spicy and almost sweet explosions. Designed to be the masculine of the feminine Flowerbomb released for ladies, Spicebomb hints of an endless balance between strength and elegance. It intertwines the virility of man with the subtle mannerisms of women.  I absolutely love the blatant resemblance of the bottle to an actual grenade. I feel it again amplifies the nuances of what a man is – something direct and courageous. What you see is what you get with a small surprise on the inside.

I for one am keen to get a bottle for myself. Maybe even invest in a special set that includes body and hand lotions. Viktor&Rolf have unashamedly done themselves justice with this baby and every man interested in making a fruity impression that carries a spicy bomb which will leave traces of yourself lingering in noses long after you’ve passed – this is the fragrance to get.




Spicebomb is available in 50ml, 90ml and 100ml. Check all leading cosmetics, fragrance and beauty counters at all leading department stores for your own Viktor&Rolf Spicebomb.
