    ya know, I had actually typed that and then deleted it....I always think of pepper or cinnamon as the kings of spice.

    LV Spezie and CdG EDP (original) are both ultra spicy.

    I love spicy scents!!! Here are my four favorites:

    1. CDG original eau de parfum
    2. Diptyque L'Eau
    3. Dityque Eau Lente
    4. SMN Potpourri.

    I could wear the SMN every day in the winter. It has a bracing medicinal quality that goes so well with the spices.

    I would say...Japiur Homme is spice

    The spiciest that comes to mind is LV Piper Nigrum. I'd also add SMN Nostalgia to the list....the spices come through after the petroleum topnotes fade. Less obvious, but spicy to my nose are two by Creed...Epicea and Acier Aluminum both have strong notes of spice woven through them.

    Gonna have to second LV Spezie here. Also the original CdG is spicy to the extreme - like a complete kitchen set...

    FMalle: Noir Epices - cloves and cinnamon added to the pepper. Kind of sweet also. Second to LV's version of it, imo. No cloves listed there but I seem to get a good blow of carnation, always.

    Bel Ami: spice and leather.
    Black Cashmere: incense and spice.
    Anarchist: clove (well actually probably carnation) and citrus.

    Comme De Garcons - Jaisalmer is the best.

    ~ Santa Maria Novella Pot Pourri - once you get past the SMN's signature medicinal opening, a great scent that is spicy without any real sweetness.

    ~ Lorenzo Villoresi Piper Nigrum - I don't get the black pepper from this as much as most. I pick up lots of peppermint instead, giving away to sweeter spices and resins later on.

    ~ Coty Wild Spices - fantastic bargain scent for under $5 if you can still find it

    ~ Azzaro Visit - especially in the beginning, with cedar becoming more dominant to my nose later on
