    Default Spicebomb reformulated?

    Hello all,

    I've heard rumours of this fragrance being reformulated already! Is it true?


    Thanks!

    I agree. The cash registers at Nordstrom haven't even had a chance to cool down yet!

    I am glad I got mine in Europe, and not the reformulated version that was released in the US.

    No way this is true at all. Plus there is nothing wrong with it how it is right now

    Yeah, they're filling up the bottles now with liquid explosives. Can't smell any worse than what they put in them now.

    where else would such rumours originate if not basenotes? Is there a whole other world of guys talking about perfumes that I don't know about?

    Unfortunately Spicebomb HAS been reformulated. What a shame b/c I actually liked the vintage formula. Better buy up all the vintage SB before it gets price gouged on eBay!

    Now how can I tell if I have a vintage opposed to the reformulated version? Could I have been sold a fake at Nordstrom?

    Advice please quick ....

    If you bought it from Nordstrom it's definitely a fake. You can only buy the real original formulation bottles from eBay for $120+ Your fake is probably just filled with watered down Eau des Beaux.

    Seems mighty soon for a reformulation. I just got another sample made for me yesterday at Nordstrom as I'm thinking about picking this up as my next bottle. Smells like what I remember the V&R official samples smelling like at the release.

    Unfortunately, the rumours are true: Spicebomb has been reformulated. It's been "re-interpreted" by Viktor & Rolf's in-house perfumer, along with the rest of the V&R line, in order to create a more "unified" feel throughout the line. The new formula is lighter, fresher, with a crisp berry top note and less intense cinnamon. The IFRA has recently restricted the use of cinnamon to 0.00000000001% of the fragrance formula, so Spicebomb has been drastically altered. However, the vintage formula of of Spicebomb is set to be re-released as part of V&R's new "Légâcie Collèctioññe", an exclusive collection of some of V&R's classic fragrances, to be sold only in V&R boutiques and select Bath and Body Works locations, and only available in 500 ml crystal flacons. A true tribute to the fragrance legacy of Viktor & Rolf!

    The reformulation sounds like it would appeal to me much more than the original. Might have to give this fragrance another shot!

    I just called a major Nordstrom (downtown Seattle) and they said they have heard nothing about a reformulation and what they have smells the same as the release.
