    I'll definitely give this one a try. The notes seem complimentary.
    I think this is an important release for V&R. Antidote is an above-average designer fragrance IMO. This will show V&R's level of commitment & the direction it is heading.

    I just laughed my ass off seeing and reading this! Antidote was so off the mark from the Flowerbomb universe and never met the expectations neither.

    LMAO That made my night

    As for Spicebomb, I like the bottle, like the ad, but the name "Spicebomb" makes it sound excessively spicy (not a fan). I can just picture wearing it and having people say, "Daiiyaamm, that smells like a spicebomb," while you casually reply, "Well, yeah, like, that's the name actually."

    To be honest, i look forward to this and hope it succeeds. V&R are yet to go wrong on a frag, IMO, even Antidote which i do not like so much, smell-wise, although i respect its quality. Flowerbomb is a fave of Wifey and i like it too.

    I agree. Anything that isn't obviously a fresh woody-amber or aquatic is automatically dubbed to be "exciting" in the current environment. That said, I will give it a try. The quality is more important than the novelty.

    I can't believe $95.00 for the large spray. I still feel this is going to be a very refined scent from V&R being more of skin scent - there is no way VR have the balls to create something with the heady sillage that Flowerbomb has for man.

    Well it looks like this is going to be released on the 23rd Jan and is going to be in Harrods. I like spicy fragrances and this is on my radar to try in the new year. I just hope with a name like spicebomb that the scent lives up to it.

    As a fan of spice fragrances, i expect that Spicebomb could be a masterpiece of V&R. Actually, i don't see too much interest in to create good spice fragrances, its all honey, chocolate,fruity or floral. I see a space to Spicebomb be a must have fragrance, despite dont have any uncommon note.

    Well, the way is wait to try this! I hope it could be all i expect for!

    I just wonder what side of "spice" this will fall on? Something unique and dangerous (see Mugler's Taste of Fragrance), or something that smells generic. Judging by the perfumer, I'd be led to believe it might be on the bland side.

    Although, with a name like Spicebomb - it better be effing interesting.

    I actually sampled this today from a "lab sample" at Nordstrom's. My favorite SA saw me and had to share this one. First impression? Nice, a little spicy but not the bomb I expected from the name. Could definitely smell the cinnamon and pepper. The dry-down seems clean, maybe even a tiny little bit "soapy", but in a good way. I was given a sample and will need to give this a proper wearing before I can decide, but this may be a good one. My review is tainted because I wore Black Aoud today so I am not really smelling the Spicebomb that much! LOL
