    It's available for shipping from Nordstrom, my local store said they would have it in here "very soon". I'm close to just buying this one blind...

    I've resisted ordering so far, as I'll be in Harrods in a couple of weeks. Really looking forward to trying and, I hope, buying!

    Can't wait. Some Nordstroms may already have a tester or some samples from what I read. Maybe I will go and test before I buy.

    So you bought a bottle at the store and they had it in stock?
    I was told that the store will not get any until March 7th but you can order online now and get it in 3-8 business days mailed to you fro free.

    Tried this yesterday at Nordtrom's - kind of an Egoiste meets a beautiful tobacco with spices, (cinnamon, pink pepper) and florals. A sweet drydown. Classy.

    Just re-sprayed this again and now I am getting a whiff that is reminiscent of Dior Homme of all things. Strange.

    Well, the impressions above bring me some serious optimism! I've got a gift card for The Bay burning a hole in my pocket.

    Does that mean it's at The Bay now? I'll have to drop in on my way home from work today.

    You really should. My Nordstroms had a small lab sample, and I was able to just get a couple sprays on a test strip. But even based on that, I'm going to join the chorus on this one: It's really, really nice. Will be purchasing as soon as it hits the store.

    Just got back from the mall with a sample of Spicebomb. It is a bit hard to describe the smell. Especially for an amateur like myself. It is sweet with some woods and a touch of spice. I doesn't smell unique or uncommon but there isn't anything that I have tried that smells exactly or really close to it. To my nose it doesn't smell like Musc Ravageur or Joop. I don't get much of the cinnamon. It kind of reminds me of a woodier Rochas Men without the coffee note but a tobacco note instead similar to Altinnsbruck aftershave or Versace The Dreamer. Less sweet than Rochas. Rochas has a better opening imo but Spicebomb has a better dry down.

    I see this as more of a fall/winter scent but can be pulled off in the spring or a cool summers day/night.

    On a side note I also retried Creed Aventus and Royal Oud today. I liked Spicebomb the best followed by Royal Oud. Aventus just doesn't do anything for me.

    EDIT: Also it doesn't seem to have great longevity on my skin. Maybe average.

    My local Nordstrom just called to say they got it in, I'll have to head over tomorrow as I'm leaving for work shortly here. I'll let you guys know what I think when I get it!

    After wearing it for about 8 hours and respraying it one time I can say that it smells good BUT not good enough for me to buy. My wife is a HUGE Flowerbomb fan (and so is almost every woman I know for some reason) but she didn't like Spicebomb that much.

    Funny I have no problem with longevity with this one.

    I need to check out our Nordstrom's. It may be in. I swear I smelled this in the elevator at work, and couldn't believe it, but it was twice in the same day. Not sure what smells like it otherwise. It was GREAT, too, I should add.

    Yeah, I'm buying this one for sure.

    I called The Bay today in South Center Mall (Calgary) and the SA said they don't have it yet, but should be getting it soon - no exact date though. Wrackum frackum!!

    Ok I am back on the fence with this one. Just showered and resprayed it. It does smell nice. I actually might buy this or Pure Shot (which I haven't smelled yet). I still can't put my finger on what it reminds me of. I was thinking maybe a bit like Gucci Pour homme II or Dior Homme or Burberry London maybe or John Varvatos Original. Heck I don't know. Smells good though.
