This is going to be more of a review-let rather than an in-depth thing; usually I wear something at least several times before I write about it, but I was in a bind. I was going out to dinner with a friend of mine and stopped at the local Sephora to try some stuff. I came upon Spicebomb and had this had been earlier in my perfume days I might have made an impulse purchase right then and there, so much did I like the initial blast of citrus and peppery spices. I liked the middle when the spices mellowed a bit and were sweetened by tobacco. What I did not like so much was that after about two hours the whole thing dropped off a cliff: I spritzed at six and the whole thing was gone by the time dessert arrived. I’ve rarely had a scent do such disappearing act on me, especially one that had such a definite (and delightful) opening.
Kind pf a disappointment. Viktor & Rolf, please fo a perfume strength one of this. Now please.
