    Re: Spicebomb sample arrived.

    Like hednic I should probably dig this out as I've not worn it in ages. It's never been ubiquitous in my part of the UK and stood out whenever I wore it.

    I think so. If the 50ml bottle looks like the one above my guess is it's a bottle that came with a gift set. I bought an Aramis Gift Set from Boots a few Christmases ago and along with the...
