Reviews of Spice Blend

Spice Blend starts off strongly masculine, dries down to more fem, and then back to masculine again with the skin scent. Dried fruits and cola toward the top of the development while it becomes softer, more powdery and metallic in the drydown.

I really don't get any Spicebomb similarities. To me this is more classic, mature and refined. It's dressed up for a formal, older affair...not for the mall, a college party or for clubbing. It's not really even a date scent to me, more of an "already married and just want to smell nice for your wife" scent.

Performance is good all around. I'm able to easily smell this for 9+ hours and the projection during the first few hours is very good.

Spice blend. Yup. The name says it all. It projects more masculine than feminine in my opinion. Subtle but good performances.

Niche Spicebomb.

Opens up with the same sweet bubblegum pink pepper as Spicebomb et all, which reminds me of the bubblegum mouth rinse fluoride from the 90s, or just the ambiance of a dentist office. Much lighter and airier than Spicebomb. Really, this is a mildly spiced sweet fragrance, easily capable of being worn by either sex. Smells good, no rough edges. Pretty expensive, it is close call between neutral and thumbs up. Right down the middle.

A volatile evanescent pink spicy/musky/semi-oriental frankly unnecessary and pale. It seems to smell something a la Maria Lux Deeply, Heeley Agarwood or several Amouage Opus. The density is kind of ephemeral and the aroma morphs soon towards something waving in the air, rosey, sweetly spicy, slightly resinous, soapy/poudree, almost candied and definitely ambery-musky. Anonimous and a low temperament spicy concoction.

Spice Blend is among the latest releases from the Maison Christian Dior line, the higher-end wing of Dior fragrances that replaced the Privee-named line. The rum and the spicy notes (cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper) factor in most strongly to my notes, but it doesn’t come off overly pungently spicy. It’s not sneeze-inducing spicy, but rather, tastefully spicy, with the rum remaining fairly prominent throughout. Initially, it smells like Mugler Pure Malt without the A*Men tar/patchouli vibe, kind of the smoother booziness on top, but it becomes spicier with time and this notion fades but is still present even after a number of hours on skin.

It’s very much in the spirit of the MCD line—light and agreeable, very much in contrast to the more daring releases from the previous Privee line along the lines of Cuir Cannage, Leather Oud, and eventually, Feve Delicieuse. Spice Blend has the benefit of being more signature-scent-worthy, though, like Purple Oud, though I expect that makes it more appealing for passersby and fans of mainly designer releases than niche fragheads.

Available at the same pricing as the rest of the line at $220 for 125ml, I still regard the Dior Privee / MCD lines as unusually well-priced in the market as far as the high-end designer lines. That said, certainly the more recent MCD releases have been generally lighter and less daring and perhaps less worthy of higher-end pricing than the previous Privee releases. Nevertheless, I’ve found several that I really think are quite great in the new line—namely, Balade Sauvage, Purple Oud, and Diorissima. Santal Noir is another one worth checking out, and I have high hopes for Jasmin Des Anges and Happy Hour, though I need to try both still.

Overall, it’s a very nice offering but a “like” not a “love” for me. It’s pleasant, a sold masculine, signature-scent-worthy offering, but not quite bold enough to be full bottle-worthy, at least not for me. Still, it performs quite well and should be a nice option for lots of people out there, especially men looking for a cold-weather-friendly signature-type of scent that transitions well into evening wearing while still being office-friendly enough. A solid release while not being groundbreaking.

Pleasant woody spice blend (well yes) with a nice use of woodyambers. I’ll stick to vintage Opium for my spice fix. Spice bland you ask? No it’s very good. It just won’t get my money, but it never does at this price point.

Edit;since my initial wear it's been on my mind and I really want to try it again
