    I got samples of both and thought they had been labelled incorrectly.

    Theres no spicebomb with 'Spicebomb' to my nose and Burberry London is Far better and spiceyer.

    Burberry London is the ideal Fragrance for this time of year, it top quality !
    Currently wearing: Méharées by L'Erbolario

    I have both, I don't think they're similar, spicebomb got a sweeter scent to me. But for some reason I started to wear London more now and it seems that I can pick up the scent more than spicebomb and it seems like it last longer on me than spicebomb. Maybe my nose is so used to spicebomb since I've wear it for a long time

    I prefer London, but I think Spicebomb is a higher quality fragrance. The ingredients and blending, imo, are superior. But London's opening still ranks as one of my all time favorites. I love it. I enjoy Spicebomb too.

    Quite similar, but Spicebomb feels like a very cheap, synthetic version of Tobacco Vanille.

    I absolutely love london. There was something in spicebomb that caused a gag reflex to happen... had to wash it off right away. I'm not sure what it was. I did smell the similarities though. Strange..

    I agree 100%.

    I got a nice aftershave balm from my Brother for Christmas last year, I thought it was a little subtle initially but grew to love it - it was L'Occitane Eaux De Bas. I heard great things about Spicebomb and when I finally tried it I was suprised at how similar it was to the Eau De Bax. In fact a girl at work asked me if I was wearing Spicebomb when I had just applied the Eau De Bax that morning!

    In terms of Burberry London, I love it! I get a lot of mulled wine, leather, spices and cinnamon from it, I wouldn't say it's anything like Spicebomb though.

    Not a big fan of either. Something about spice bomb makes me sick. Burberry London is okay, but not that great either IMO. I like Brit though.
    Favorite notes at this point: Sandal wood, Oud, Frankincense, Rose

    London is much better than Spicebomb. Spicebomb on the other hand reminded me of Eau Des Bavx & Bvlgari Black a little, both of these are, of course, much superior to the SB.

    Spicebomb is more attractive than london. I like both, but spicebomb is the winner.

    Both are greats among winter designer scents. the newer formulations of London with more wine/apple/pine/spice, and less pepper/tobacco, are very good. It's getting better with age I think.

    Spicebomb still has a brutally awful candy top, but the Tobacco-Vanille heart and the woody/clean-musk base are awesome for a designer scent.

    Glad I'm not the only one who sees the similarity between these two; I routinely confuse them when I smell them "in the air", so to speak. That said, I'd wear London over Spicebomb. Spicebomb is cinnamon gum on my skin, whereas London has a slightly earthy, vetiver/leather drydown that I dig.

    not a fan of the spice bomb...generic vanilla drydown......and when mixed with my normal onion/garlic BO,,,gives me a nice sweet sickening accord
    14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it

    For some reason, London stay on me better, it last longer on my skin than spicebomb, I guess it does depend on the person. I wish spicebomb have an edp version or intense, I'd be all over it.

    A*men Taste of Fragrance is a bomb of spice. Spicebomb is a sugar bomb.

    Spicebomb is more similar to Creed's Royal Oud. Royal Oud has the same tobacco and leather + spices, but it is slightly drier than Spicebomb, not as spicy. Burberry London is much lighter and woodier than either of these - probably from cedar or guaiac wood that lightens the impact of spice. I personally like London best of these, but they are all very good.
