    I think its allright but as many have said already it comes across as a tribute to 3-4 popular scents all Amalgamated into one.

    Hmmm... Ever tried their other bottle a called Antidote. Not really they same scent but that bottle had a lot of notes going on in that and when you say that they seem to take the best part of all frags and inputted them into one frag...to me it sounds like viktor and Rolf has in mind that they just throw a bunch in one and you may not like it that much but you can hate it either now I tested spicebomb one time and to me it smelt good but it has been done before...like one million without that bubblegum smell. Now I thought it be more spicier but its still a good scent...not for 90$ though.

    Seems like the best part about it is the presentation. The bottle is pretty rad.
    My top 5 changes like the Tennessee weather.

    So many people are raving about this one. Why ?
    In my collection of perfumes I have 2 spicebombs. Real spicebombs : Loewe Pour Homme and Monsieur Rochas, (both vintage). These are to my nose about a thousand times better than Spicebomb. I will keep trying it, in the hope that suddenly something will "click" and I will understand what all the fuss is about.
    Spicebomb is a very good scent and I really like it, flaws (price and projection) aside.

    If you don't like Spicebomb, don't feel obligated to. It's a hit-or-miss scent. So you are perfectly legitimate in feeling it is overrated.

    Unfortunately, around here, this is Nordstroms top of the line fragrance, so you can imagine what the choices we have.

    I like it. Admittedly I don't yet own a bottle but I have worn it several times from samples and was always impressed. Will definitely purchase once the heat of summer starts to loosen its grip.

    I agree there is a bluntness and flattened quality to main body of the scent. It's okay but I'm not tempted to buy it.

    Have not tried it..all the hype, I almost felt pressured to. Almost! I also dislike the bottle. There has been a cooler, pinker grenade before imo, Agent Provocateur.

    I'm pretty ambivalent towards this one. Was very excited about it based on the early reviews, but was only lukewarm about it when I got a sample. My partner really disliked it, which put the final in the coffin of my interest for it.
