    I don't think it will make much of a difference but it is pushing designer frgrances up a bit.

    US pricing -

    Dior Homme and Sport 50ml = $57; 100ml = $76
    Chanel Bleu & AHSE 50ml = $62; 100ml = $84

    Spicebomb 50ml = $75; 90ml = $95

    I never thought of that, but that's interesting. Do you think this is just reflective of the economy as it stands, or there are some fragrances that come out, and because they cost more and are popular, that others follow suit? Is this at a distributor level or retail level? I'm intrigued.

    I don't know. V&R just might be pricier in general. I think Antidote was priced higher than the competition when it came out. I was just surprised a little at $75 for 50ml.

    Pricey or not, I rarely see a line for any cologne here in Vegas especially at Nordstroms. Fashion show mall has some crazy good shopping and others Barny's etc nearby as well. Rare to see more than 1-2 guys browsing in Nordstroms fragrances, the line freaked me out lol. I was 5th in line.... didn't look like they would run out soon there were a good 30 bottles just on the display stand.

    Either it was a weird coincidence or this sucker is going to be popular. Also combine that with the fact of all the watery smell of nothing releases the second half of 2011 maybe of designer frags? Not sure but really? a line? lol.

    This is exactly what im thinking. Here in Canada, there almost the same price. I bought my bottle for $95 and I noticed the other day JPG Le Male was $98. Thats insane, I'd buy spicebomb before Le Male.

    And imo Spicebomb is better then all 4 of those choice, barely passing DH if its vintage.

    True, but you do get your monies worth, Antidote was worth it for $75. Its complex and non linear imo

    For the record, Nordstrom in the US is having a gift with purchase of the $95 100ml of Spicebomb:

    Yeah, I got a couple of those deluxe sample kits when I ordered mine, and I think there'll be another when my bottle arrives. I have to say, I really like the aftershave balm and the shower gel. They are both really nice, and the aftershave didn't irritate my skin like so many of the cologne-based ones do!

    I just got it! To my nose, I smell a mix of Pure Malt and La Nuit...I think Reckoner is right on the money (minus the headache part, at least not yet ). I'm really liking it so far. It has a little bit of a bubblegum smell but I like it much better than 1 million.

    I'm really enjoying my sample of it and I may get a bottle. It's a really smooth scent that has a vanilla sweetness and a little added fruit. It kind of reminds me of the smell of gummy bears to be honest and it's very unique for a designer fragrance.

    Got my bottle today. My oh my, this smells good. Very good. Initially I got a TV drydown vibe. But it's followed up by some freshness, the spice reminds me quite a lot of Burberry London. It's sort of a strange spring release, but I think the freshness of it can make it work very well in the hotter months as well.

    This was a very, very, very pleasant surprise.

    I smelled this one today and the drydown smells more like Killian - Amber Oud to me ???

    tried this again today...

    my first thought? you gotta be kidding me.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

    qualitatively, this is a $15 fragrance. no way I would pay $90 for this. that is absurd.

    needless to say, i worry for the future of Viktor & Rolf.

    Really?

    This smells very high quality to me. Reminds me of what I get out of Tom Ford only fresher and more versatile.
    "Low quality" is about as far away from what I'm smelling as I could possibly get.

    Managed to test this in Selfridges today, unfortunately it doesn't go on sale until the 6th.

    On first impression I like it, I can see a loose resemblence to Tobacco Vanille, but it reminds me of something else, but cannot for the life of my work out what!!

    Will have to sample this one a few times I think...

    I think one of the reasons why people think it's cheap smelling is because it's too sweet which I agree but in a positive way. I tend to find spicy fragrance too mature smelling for a 21 yr old which is why I tend to stay away from classic chanel and guerlain fragrances but the sweetness has a youthful vibe which I always welcome

    Is any one getting a Burberry London feel from this fragrance also???

    Just tried it and my 1st impression is that I like it. As far as the price goes, it's can be an endless discussion...to high, etc., it's all relative. There going for it with this one, huge ad campaign, the works. If they win this price probably won't seem that high anymore. If it's a flop, V & R has long road in front of them to bounce back.

    I get aspects of the following here, but not in a bad way:

    Ysl L'homme La Nuit
    1 Million
    Burberry London
    Tobacco Vanille
    L'Occitane's Eav De Bavx

    It's still brilliant. Was going strong when I was done with work, but wanted to experience the topnotes again so fired off a few more sprays. The opening has some good grapefruit freshness going on I think.

    I also get a few different smells throughout, it gives me some different aspects back and forth.

    I would think so. Isn't Flowerbomb a big hit? I still need to try Antidote, but never see it anywhere.

    Manager of men's fragrance at the Chicago Nordies told me they did $2500 worth of Spicebomb in the first week. At an average of...say...$85 per bottle, that's about 30 bottles. I'd say that's a pretty solid showing.
