    Default la nuit de l'homme v Spicebomb

    Simple question to my spice lovers out there, which of the two do you prefer? YSL la nuit de l'homme or Viktor & Rolf's Spicebomb.

    I am currently wearing both (well kind of - i sprayed one on each arm and I'm trying to decipher my favourite)

    by far??!!!

    thats strong sentiment. i cant decide because although spicebomb is fruitier, it seems more linear and doesnt have the same projection.

    I choose Spicebomb for both it's scent, and the fact that it's fun to take pics of.

    I don't own either of them at the moment.
    I might buy Spicebomb at some point.
    It is pretty good but I am just not sure if it is something I need to add to my collection.
    La Nuit is not very good and I won't even consider buying it.

    I have both and enjoy both very much. I prefer LN over spicebomb because it seems a bit more mature, grown up, than spicebomb. Spicebomb is a little too much like bubble gum, especially in the opening. Reminds me of One Million. La Nuit, I have found is better appreciated by a lady.

    I both agree with senore01 that La Nuit de L'homme is better and the reasons why.

    It far more sophisticated, elegant and sensual. Personally, I don't find them to even be that similar - cardamom is not even a note in Spicebomb.

    Interesting that you chose to compare these two scents...but definitely La Nuit for me. It is incredibly warm, aromatic and perfect for intimacy.

    Cheers.

    Both are good but La Nuit is the more sophisticated and better made of the two.

    Putting on Spicebomb gives you the illusion that you are outsmarting the guys in the club wearing One Million. La Nuit on the other hand actually outsmarts them.

    If you're looking for actual spice, then don't buy either one. If you're just on the fence between these two, I prefer La Nuit.

    Seems to be a few strong sided opinions regarding these two. I have to side with Spicebomb, by far. Not a terribly big fan of La Nuit at all, and ended up selling my bottle a while back. Spicebomb I've tested for awhile and am sure I will be making a future purchase.

    I agree with this 100%. Only rather than making a future purchase of Spicebomb, I've already bought it.

    I owned (as in past tense) La Nuit De L'Homme. Initially, I liked it very much. But after wearing it several times over a couple of months time, it began to give me headaches. WAY too synthetic (and I like many synthetic fragrances). On the right person, I could see it being a good fragrance.....but it was way too synthetic and gave me headaches, so it had to go (I sold my bottle)

    Spicebomb, though, I bought and still have....and I wear it occasionally. I enjoy the smell, don't get headaches from it, and it's a compliment getter. Also, as far as the longevity and projection comparison of the two, they're pretty comparable but I'd give Spicebomb the edge. A lot of fragrances simply don't last on me....but the other day, I did a test: Fahrenheit on one arm, Spicebomb on the other. Spicebomb projected just as well and lasted just as long as Fahrenheit.

    And since I like it, it projects, and it lasts....it's a keeper. La Nuit, however, was not.

    I'm surprised the vast majority chose spicebomb. i like the scent very much and it probably does smell nicer than la nuit, but i dont think it has the longevity and projection. it seems a few comments were made based on sampling spicebomb rather than owning.

    ON ME....Spicebomb has BETTER projection and longevity than La Nuit. I realize this isn't an exact science, and results will vary depending on the user, but Spicebomb is actually one of the better fragrances in those two departments for me. Perhaps I'm just lucky, or have the perfect body chemistry for Spicebomb....who knows....but I'll take it.

    After sampling both for a few days, I can easily say I like Spicebomb more.

    I get no longevity issues either that others have claimed. Sprayed 1 shot to each wrist this am and can still smell it on my wrists even after running errands for most of the day.

    Even bought the 90 ml bottle today for a good price.

    La Nuit becasue it's much more mature and versatile. Spicebomb is overall a better, more original composition, but it is kind of a one trick pony. About the only place suitable for wearing Spicebomb is bars and clubs. It smells like candy, so it's like 1 Million in that sense. Even though I enjoy Spicebomb, I can't see myself wearing it enough to justify a purchase.
