    Default spicebomb vs burberry london

    both have cinnamon, leather and tobacco. i hadn't drawn this comparison until recently, but i generally feel that london is a better fragrance (maybe its the pink pepper that drew me away from spicebomb) at half of the price.

    Burberry London for classiness. Spicebomb for compliments and slightly and I mean slightly better longevity/projection.

    I prefer Spicebomb, but it reminds me much more of Paco Rabanne's 1 Million than Burberry London.

    a lot of people say that, but i personally don't see the comparison at all (other than the shared cinnamon note).

    Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf - it's more versatile than Burberry London for Men by Burberry.

    I'm surprised to see so many complain about Spicebomb lacking longevity. Each time I've tried it it's lasted the whole day, and yesterday I put on a shirt I'd just laundered and it STILL smelled like Spicebomb. So I'd say the stuff has tenacity. Also, I'm starting to come around to it. It's not the mere bubblegum-blob I initially took it to be; it actually has some lovely layers, including the tobacco in the middle and a very clean vetiver in the base.

    I think London is a slightly better fragrance, but I get better projection and longevity out of Spicebomb. I also find it to be a lot more versatile. London is something I have a hard time wearing even though I like it.

    If I had to choose one it would be Spicebomb.

    This is an interesting comparison actually. I own & like both. Almost too close to call - flip a coin?!

    My initial thought on Spicebomb was that it's a combination of One Million and London. I like it better than those, though, as I think the combination (at least, of things that are reminiscent) has more personality than either on their own.

    Granted, I just put Spicebomb on 45 minutes ago and I've only sampled London once, I don't see much between the two. I smell similar stuff with 1 Million (as many have noted). I also read someone compare it to Chanel Egoiste...and I can see that a little as well. Anyone else?

    I'd pick Spicebomb over Burberry London as well.

    Since I think Spicebomb is an abomination it's an easy choice.

    London is gorgeous, Spicebomb is a mess. Eau des Baux is a perfected Spicebomb imo.

    Wow. I did forget about Eau de Baux. Both I and my son love EDB. It's a great scent and at a very reasonable price. Good value for the money.

    I haven't smelled London in a while but recall liking it. SB is nice but I found it to be somewhat unwearable. I've been meaning to test it again but not sure where I put my sample. Perhaps this tells me where importance lies.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Does anyone feel Spicebomb is very very similar to Tobacco Vanille ?
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    I see a lot of people post this about London, but personally, I find it to have pretty decent versatility, but only in colder weather. Yes, it has the spicey, boozy parts, but it also has the cool, clean & classy vibe about it that I actually find quite versatile. The little projection it gives, to me, is the cool, clean & classy....smelled up close, though, it's a little spicier & boozy. Either way, my pick is London....I think it's a fantastic & very well blended fragrance. Just wish it was a bit more concentrated...

    Easily Burberry London. Spicebomb is a decorated car deodorizer. It is horrible. These companies are putting out more and more colognes that are just dressed up deodorizers.
