If you’re a fan of Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb, be prepared to find your new favourite obsession; Infrared Eau de Toilette is a hot, spicy and bold fragrance for men that will, quite literally, blow your socks off.
This Fragrance Smells Like…
As the name suggests, Infrared Eau de Toilette is Viktor & Rolf’s hottest Spicebomb yet. Infrared is an explosion of the hottest spices; the ambery oriental scent is made of layers and layers of spice. It’s a hot dish that catches fire as it’s tossed about in the pan.
But how is this fiery mood created? All thanks to an explosion of hot red spices. The fragrance opens with lively, vibrant top notes of sweet red berries and a leathery, luxurious saffron accord before it takes things up a notch with a fiery blaze of cinnamon leaf essence and a habanero red pepper accord in the heart. Finally, the base adds a more sensual warmth and smokiness through benzoin resinoid and a tobacco accord.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Viktor & Rolf’s 2021 scent is inspired by Infrared technology, which detects body heat; both the scent and the bottle capture this technology perfectly.
You Will Love This If…
If you’re a fan of spice, then you’ll love this. Trust me, Infrared is a warm, fiery scent that will ignite an addiction as well as seduction.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
This warm scent is similar to the original Spicebomb Eau de Toilette – you’ll recognise notes like cinnamon and tobacco – but it’s even bolder and fierier.
Is Spicebomb Infrared Unisex?
I can see why Spicebomb Infrared is marketed as a fragrance for men. However, anyone who enjoys intensely hot perfumes will enjoy this.
What’s The Longevity Like?
For an Eau de Toilette, it has impressive lasting power. I could still smell it on my wrist at least six hours after application, thanks to the powerful punch it packs.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
Of course, Viktor & Rolf Infrared is held in their iconic grenade-shaped flacon. The top has a matte charcoal black finish, while the translucent base is a stark ruby red shade to match the infrared theme – and, of course, hint at the hot notes within. The finishing touch is that you rip the V&R guard off the neck to unleash the scent of seduction.
