Finally. After scouring here and there, trying to find ways how I can get this perfume since Harrods did not ship any fragrance outside UK - alas, it has landed into my lap last Monday. Thanks to a good friend who said he wanted to return to Malaysia for a quick break with his family, I don't waste any time to also asked him to buy me this perfume. And he did.
The BOMB has finally arrived. The Spicebomb by Victor & Rolf, which I fell for due to its very interestingly quirky grenade-lookalike bottle. When Men's Health UK slipped some sample of the scent into last month's issue, it seemed to stamp the deal : I HAVE to get it!
Upon spritzing the real stuff last week, there seem to be a sense of deja vu to the scent. Somehow I'm sensing a similarity to CK One Shock, with a hint of CK Man. Turned out that I'm not wrong at all coz some ingredients in the formulation are quite the same.
It's top note has grapefruit, which is the same as CK Man giving a sense of citrusy feel to it. But the one that really hit me the most is the middle and base notes coz it contains the same 'ingredient' as CK One Shock - pepper and tobacco. Yet, Spicebomb is much sexier coz the vetiver and leather in the base note really exude the sensual appeal that differs from Shock and set it well apart.
To me, Spicebomb is much suitable for the evening rather than morning wear to the office coz its spicier scent really can 'detonate' the room without any doubt!
*suddenly this one reminds me of the song "cantik menarik tertarik, kau memang da bomb!"
