    I'd also like to know,... Spicebomb looks like it has potential to be really good.

    I was shot down with Sisley's Eau d'Ilkar.

    I'm not getting my hopes high for this one.

    Once sniffed, twice shy.

    for swap/sale:

    Cool looking bottle, interesting notes, the name is awful though!

    Hi all. Tried this at the Bijenkorf departmentstore in Amsterdam. I thought it was breathtaking, not in a nice way though. Remainded me a lot of Mugler's Pure Malt. Heavy stuff, I got hints of cinnemon and leather. Nothing green here or subtle: a little too heavy for.my taste...

    I received a bottle as a gift. I haven't given it a full wearing yet, but my initial sampling of it did not remind me of Pure Malt at all. It reminded me of some elements of Chanel Egoiste and L'Artisan Tea for Two.

    More thoughts after a full wearing.........

    Hmm... Davidoff Champion / Mont Blanc Legend / Trussardi Uomo 2011 also have elements of Platinum Egoiste. Hope Spicebomb is note similar to them.

    Sweet peppery flowers. A bit sweet on the opening, but the sweetness quickly fades and drydown is very addictive. Really love it now.
    Would safely say that it's unisex, but I'm a frag genderbender though.
    Tested it on paper and the teststrip is still smelling strongly more than a day later, so longevity should be fine too.
    Can't wait to test it on my skin soon.
    Not getting the Egoiste vibe like petruccijc, but with the cinnamon / flower combo it does make sense.

    Egoiste sounds cool but Tea for Two worries me...that scent was too patchouli for my taste. Can't wait for the review update.

    Default Re: V&R Spicebomb @ Harrod's ....

    I unexpectidly got a sample this morning with a Harrods order and I've just put some on, I get the nod to Egoiste that petruccijc mentioned but it goes about it in a very different way as the opening hit of cinnamon and saffron compliement each other and you end up with a quite accomplished wheaty spicy scent thats very moreish.

    Received a sprayed sample strip from harrods today, and on the strength of that have ordered the fragrance. Having got it on my fingers and wrist, it's unusual, and a contradiction in the best way.
    At first I thought it was going to be too sweet, but then, seconds later.... A cutting freshness swept through, some familiar scents in an unfamiliar brew. I'm hooked.
    This is not a 'safe' fragrance IMHO, rather, one for those who want something within the 'acceptable' range of edgy.

    A few days later and the teststrip is still smelling strongly. It got better and better.
    The spice is almost gone and what's left is a warm, deep and comforting smell.
    Reminds me of something from my childhood that I can't figure out yet what it is.
    Gonna visit the Bijenkorf here in town tomorrow and test it on my skin.
    But I think I´m sold already...

    The tobacco and suede become more prominent in the dry down.

    Longevity and sillage are above average IMO.
