    Soapy you say? Is it that kind of plasticky soapiness that is prevalent in so many other scents done by Olivier Polge, especially F Black by Ferragamo, Dior Homme (sort of), Kenzo Power, etc?

    Today was my first full wearing Spicebomb which I thought it would be a hardy spice scent like Costume National Homme. Instead I found a scent that has shades of Tobacco Vanille's tobacco note. The saffron adds a sweetness but nowhere to the heady volume of Tobacco Vanille vanilla. It does have that spicy semi sweet oriental notes found in Joop and Bogart Homme that I also feel that Flowerbomb carries.

    The projection and longevity does rival Antidote with its sweet spicy tobacco sillage that stays at a arms length near you. I would say this is more of a fall wintern scent and if successful I could see flankers in the future like VR does for Flowerbomb ....and Instense Spicebomb.

    Over all like it and it makes move available to the masses a lighter version of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille.

    Default Spicebomb.....really?!?!?!? Smells more like Flowerbomb with spice added.....

    I tried this today @ Nordstroms....Way TOO feminine in the drydown for my taste.....Is there no company out there that is creating true masculine scents? It would seem NOT!!! I did try Molton Brown's Singosari recently and that fragrance IS a true spice scent....Oddly enough it is marketed as unisex....but I can't really see a woman wearing it....Unless of course it is Chaz Bono!

    To be fair, Flowerbomb always smelled as gourmand as it did floral for me.

    Despite having bought a bottle I have yet to open it as I have plenty of samples to give me time to decide whether I like it or not. That said, Nordstrom has an awesome return policy and will take it back if you buy it, open it, and then decide you don't like it.

    Thankfully, I won't need to do that as I like it.

    This is the first designer fragrance I've ever liked, and I don't just like it I'm flat out head over heels for the stuff. tbh I was quite annoyed with all the hype on here but once I tried it I was sold on it. I honestly think it will be talked about for a long time to come.

    That said, I think Spicebomb is a wildly inaccurate name. It's a kind of ethereal tobacco floral candy aldehyde powder mixture of what seems like a complete kaleidoscope of ingredients. Aside from the tobacco, none of that aforementioned description should appeal to a wacky niche head like myself but somehow it all congeals into an amazing scent that I find myself craving to smell.

    I'm certain all the hype around it will lead to lots of exceedingly high expectations that will result in plenty of letdowns, threads about it being overrated, etc - but I still think it is deserving of its current praise. It's a magnificent fragrance.

    Hmm I've bypassed Spicebomb while shopping at Nordies a few times but now you've intrigued me and I have to try it.

    TWB If Spicebomb dries down too feminine why can't you see a woman wearing it?

    I agree with you hare. I think the name leads to expectations of a very spicy scent and to my nose it is not. On that other site I said in my review that, "Soapy, clean, a bit feminine and a nice scent for a young man that does not want to offend anyone and maybe attract the young ladies...who may want to steal his scent to wear themselves."

    This scent is the bomb! (a good thing) But to my nose certainly not a spice bomb. There are other fragrances with a lot more spice used as a central note than this one. An unfortunate choice in name only but a lovely unisex scent.

    I´ve read that Spicebomb is like Dior Homme with tobacco instead of iris. It´s true?

    I bought myself a bottle on Tuesday, this juice is great. I think it's a unisex frag. Anyone can pull it off.

    I think a woman certainly could wear Spicebomb.....I was referring to the Molton Brown scent which I believe to be more masculine than feminine, but is marketed as unisex....

    Pleased to see I'm not the only one to witness similarities with TFTV, probably the only reason I want purchase spicebomb

    ^Large Similarities to TFTV, but much fresher, more floral, powdery clean, and lighter. I get so many comparisons to aspects of certain scents I liked (including several rather high end scents), that despite this one having too much sweetness (as did TFTV), and "fake sueded fruit like Paco 1 Million", I'm really liking the contrast between chilly/fresh floral'fruity background and a spiced sweet pipe tobacco foreground.

    After the rush of fresh-ground, electric, oily peppercorns and acetal "Grapefruit", I get strong bits of:

    Paco Rabanne 1 Million
    Bois D'Orage / French Lover
    Invasion Barbare
    Tobacco Vanille
    Royal Oud

    In that order.

    And then there is a certain quiet wet, clean note in the background, hinting at melons and the dual texture of wet flower petals (microspopic fuzz with cool wet dew and a waxy nuance). maybe some methylbenzodioxepinone and butylphenyl methylpropianol ? Unthinkable for things so aquatic and floral in a scent called spicebomb ? I think not. Polge is making me like this scent despite it being far too sweet and femme to bear it's own title.

    The ad is a take-off of the original women's Flowerbomb. I just think it's a clever take on the "bomb" theme of both products. (I am interested in how the tobacco is presented.)

    Tried it today: Spicebomb starts off spicy. Then it turns into a mixture of mostly B*Men and a little 1 Million, with added cinnamon. It ends up as incensy leather, and I don't like leather scents so it's not for me.

    I've gotta agree! This stuff is WONDERFUL...it's got the apple pie vibe, I get that...but it fades after a while and it's kinda leathery, kinda manly when all is said and done!

    It`s the best designer release for a very long time. Jaques Polge.. Why didn`t you came up with something like this instead of the boring Bleu?

    I tried this today. Not really impressed at all. Like a very light take on Tobacco Vanille, with a cheap, VERY synthetic rubbery smell too. Pretty weak lasting power.

    I have no idea why so many people are excited by this.

    Ok just got a few samples at Nordstroms.

    This is just 90% Loccitane Eau de Baux with 10% Bogart pour Homme mixed in. Pretty much exactly what i thought it would smell like. Good but i will pass on it.

    Perhaps a Polge must sow his wild notes elsewhere before settling down to marry Coco!
