Viktor & Rolf Eau De Toilette 50 ml
About this deal
Now I enjoyed smelling Wanted by Night but assessed that ownership wasn't for me, because I scratch my clubber itch with stuff like the aforementioned Eros, Paco Rabanne 1 Million (2008), or perhaps off-the-wall things like Ted Lapidus Altamir (2008). Into the drydown and you get a subdued, modern (sweet dryer sheets), masculine crowd-pleaser, which is to say it smells very pleasant and most non-basenoters will enjoy when getting close.

The best comparison I've found is that it opens up like Polo Red Intense, but with less candy fruit. Dial up the intensity with this masculine amber fougere fragrance, which unleashes an electric freshness of Black Spices, vibrant green aromatics, and the fiery warmth of Incense.
For those who have tried Spicebomb Night Vision Eau De Toilette, the new Eau De Parfum is a deeper, richer scent. As night falls, the iconic Spicebomb grenade bottle is reimagined in deep black glass with an electric green stripe.

There's sweetness right away from green apple, and something like ethyl maltol and ethyl vanillin doing some candy-like smoothing thing a la Versace Eros (2013), but it's still a better take than the sour candy Invictus crap going on in the EdT. Experience an explosion of fresh top notes, with zesty Lemon injecting a burst of freshness into spicy Black Pepper, Chilli, Nutmeg, and Clove. The bottle itself is dressed up like a green version of the motif featured on Spicebomb Extreme (2015), so this already looks far better than the toxic slime colors adoring the bottle of the EdT.The biggest key difference between Night Vision EdP and the previous EdT is the fragrance being moved away from being a mere Paco Rabanne Invictus (2013) wannabe that has some confusion gourmand elements mixed with green fruity 90's vibes, and towards being more of a true clubber/nightlife fragrance like the market copy suggests in ham-fisted manner. This will also be why I am unlikely to seek out Spicebomb Night Vision Eau de Parfum, as it just crossed the threshold of too many other more distinctive choices for my personal taste.

Speaking of that, a ton of natural things too expensive for a designer these days show up in the base, but whether or not peru balsam, mastic, and olibanum are actually in this fragrance, the base has a rich warm quality similar to another Azzaro, being Wanted by Night (2018). Wear time pushes past 10 hours and performance is clubber-worthy, which makes sense considering the theming.I really enjoy the opening and the drydown scent but it becomes pretty hard to pick up after a few hours.
