    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.

    It must have already been. Some people have posted that it is "fresh", "fruity", and "femme". I am glad I did not get that version.

    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.

    Wore it again today, confirming very low longevity. I envy those who are getting 8 hours from this.

    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 Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....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.

    I got a good 8 hours with Spicebomb today. I sprayed it from my actual bottle and not the sample sprayer this time so I don't know if that's what did the trick or not.
