    Default Spicebomb Longevity Poll

    Because I don't feel this fragrance is hyped up enough, it's time for another thread! Seriously though how is the longevity of this one on ya'll? It's not doing so well on me. The projection is strong for the first hour or 2 and then it takes a dive to skin scent status, which isn't very fitting for a cologne named Spicebomb.

    It generally makes it through the whole work day on me. Diva-scale sillage, no, but more than a skin scent.

    As far as longevity goes, I find I need to spray more often than with others. It would seem to last on me ~2-3 hours, max. Then it hides with very minimal projection. Not sure what others' results are.

    On skin, get about 4 hours, clothing substantially longer. I think it'd be interesting to smell a flanker of spicebomb (intense), where the spices, tonka, tobacco, and Vetiver are all more prominent with greater sillage and longevity.

    Today is my second full wearing of my Spicebomb samples. It has been 4.5 hours since I sprayed it this morning and it is still going. Not as strong as the first hour, though; but still very detectable. I need a couple more wearings to draw a conclusion.

    I've tried multiple combinations and they all give a min of 8hrs easy.

    8hrs: 2 on the chest, 1 on each side of the neck 4 SPRAYS

    9hrs: 1 on the chest, 1 on each side of the neck, 1 on each wrist 5 SPRAYS

    10hrs: 2 on the chest, 1 on each side of the neck and 1 on each each wrist 6 SPRAYS

    Walking time bomb lol no pun intended :P

    10+hrs: 3 on the chest, 1 on each side of the neck, 1 on the back of the neck and 1 on each each wrist 7 SPRAYS

    I mostly do the 4-5 sprays.

    Okay I sprayed a shot of my Spicebomb sample near the bend of my arm 6.5 hours ago and I can still smell it lightly. It's very faint though. Maybe when the weather warms up I'll get more longevity.

    I get some pretty crap longevity with just the EDT itself...when I use the shower gel and the shave balm also, it amps up the longevity to almost double. So, there's an option. :-D

    I get 8 hours easy and it radiates decently. I got consistent wafts.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Lucky. I still don't regret buying my bottle as it's a great fragrance and I've decanted a bit of it into my keychain atomizer but I think it's obvious Spicebomb is a success and thus worthy of a stronger concentration to address it's only drawback, at least for myself and quite a few others, its longevity.

    Spicebomb is weird. The topnotes are an absolute blast which put you in a huge scent cloud.
    Quite cloying from 3 sprays (with the bottle, no sample sprayers). A friend of mine jokingly said that I "stink", but again he said it while laughing and he has a big mouth.
    And might be a bit jaleous because he can't afford cologne.

    We went clubbing and to my surprise I got some whafts. Not much though.
    Around 6am we were drunk enough to go home.
    I smelled my shirt and I could smell it faintly. No more projection or whafts but it was still there.
    That was 8 hours after application.

    My advise is to watch the trigger with this juice.
    I actually don't like the cloying blast of the topnotes.
    I think the huge opening might cause nose fatigue so the longevity and sillage might be quite good.

    Enough projection for clubbing? I don't know, not really imo.
    The problem is, when we get awesome stuff like (vintage) Dior Homme Intense in EDP concentration,
    how can anything be equally satisfying?

    Olivier Polge didn't deliver a finished product imo.
    The opening is too much and the drydown doesn't really satisfy for me.
    Those first hours make me feel like an attention whore, lol!
    This should have been a more tamed EDP with awesome longevity and a right dosage of sillage.
    Sillage when you are moving around like with l'Instant Extreme and DHI.

    I guess the intense and cloying candy opening with the silent drydown fits the grenade marketing.
    The question is, do we need to have a grenade explosion with the opening and nose fatigue or an unsatisfying drydown?
    Aren't perfumers supposed to make people smell good instead of overthinking the marketing and trying to be artistic?
    And why is this not called candybomb, if it's all about the topnotes?

    I don't know. This is confusing stuff.

    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.

    Yesterday, 3 sprays to the chest lasted 24 hours with strong whafts.
    Today, I did 1 spray to the chest at 6am, and I'm still getting whafts of it 18 hours later.

    Moderate projection for the first 6 hours, then it becomes close to the skin for the next couple of hours. Though, it comes back alive with body heat.

    I have never gotten good longevity with Spicebomb. I love the scent thought. I have the original, just in case their is a re-formulated version out there that I have yet to sniff. It lasts about 3-4 hours on my skin. Wish it would last longer as I really do enjoy this juice.
