Okay I need to nuance the above review.
I have tested it more and I am surprised.
This one is actually very good when it comes to longevity and sillage.
I did 1 spray to the chest and I could get whafts for up to 10 hours!
After 10 hours, I removed my clothing to take a bath and it was still projecting strongly!!!
Dosage is key with this one, it seems to be in the "1 spray" category.
Two sprays max, for me at least.
I can honestly say, if you do 4 to 5 sprays, you are "that guy".
I still have a problem with the intense and cloying topnotes, but it is humane with 1 spray.
I'm surprised nobody has a problem with the initial cloying burst, might be something personal.
I have worn 4 sprays of Dior Homme Intense and l'Air du Desert Marocain (up to 5 sprays) around people and nobody ever said anything that it is too strong.
With Spicebomb I can hear people sniffing around and picking up on it before they enter my room. (!)
Even 1 remark came with it, like you can read above, so watch out!
This is without a doubt the reason why we have such mixed reviews about longevity and sillage.
Nose fatigue caused by the cloying topnotes.
Now to end it up.
Do I like it? No, I love it.
This is currently the Tobacco Vanille among the designers, exactly what the designer department needed.
Is it perfect? No. Not really.
Like other people have said in different topics, Spicebomb is a grower.
There are times that I crave to wear this.
I'm happy I have this in my collection.
