Perfect date fragrance; I pretty much got this FB solely for that reason (well, that and I can't stop smelling myself when wearing). Wouldn't necessarily say spiciness is so much of a main theme here, but definitely a major contributing element. To me it screams "classy as SH*T", which lines up well with the night you have planned.
Of course, there is also a great deal of merit to the idea of going with what she likes. Personally, I would lean towards creating new scent associations and asserting my own style rather than falling in line, so to speak. But you never know with that one.
