    Some people have commented that it smells like "Eau de Baux" but I don't see it.

    EdB does not have tobacco as far as I could tell.

    Closest thing I can think of is Joop Homme Wild.

    Spicebomb smells like a mix of:

    Eau de Baux
    Gucci PH II
    Tobacco Vanille

    Top 5:
    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    I find some similarities with A*Men Pure Havane, though I find that Spicebomb smells more sophisticated and layered and less cloyingly synthetic than Pure Havane.

    I can see similarities in the tobacco note with CK One Shock (I love both Shock and Spicebomb). Although the amber mixed with the wet, sweet, tobacco note in CK One Shock makes it sweeter than Spicebomb. But I can definitely see comparisons and the same people enjoying both of these.

    Similar to Bulgaria black in the drydown

    I'm not going to say it's similar, because to my nose, it's not... but, if you're looking for a tobacco finish, I'd highly recommend Gucci Pour Homme II. It opens with black tea and violet leaf, which I adore, but it eventually evolves into a tobacco scent. Stick with it long enough to get to the drydown and you'll hopefully see what I mean.

    I've thought since its release that Spicebomb smells like One Million laid over Burberry London.

    One Million seems to be the one its compared to the most, but if you actually do a side-by-side test, there is very little that's similar about them. Personally, I have tried many of the frags mentioned above, and have even tried them against Spicebomb, and I don't see many similarities. Then again...I don't pick up the tobacco scent in Spicebomb, so maybe I don't have a clue what I'm doing

    I agree. HiM by Hanae Mori also is a mix of these 3.

    For a sweet tobacco try Tobacco Vanille.

    I found Spicebomb to have a sweet, pipe tobacco undercurrent, in its heart, and a fully-developed cherry-almond, pipe tobacco in its base.

    Relevant thereto, try:

    Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens - Upon application, one is treated to a comforting pipe tobacco accord from the spicy and slightly tarry Balkan tobacco coupled with tonka bean with its vanillic earthiness, and white honey with its mildly sweet facet tinged with urine. A flavorful date and rum raisin currant pervades and enhances the pleasantness of the tobacco. A whisper of sensuous jasmine flitters about. Transitioning to the awaiting middle, a wonderful smokehouse accord and smoked leather envelop the inviting opening. Vanilla infuses the brew with its lightly woody and caramel aspects. And a deliciously seductive, red rose with fruity glimmers and a cabernet-like facet marries delightsome beeswax acquiring its ambery, honeyed and sweet hay character, and makes itself known. This luxurious heart segues to the waiting base. Here, in the rousing base, the syrupy sweetness of styrax commingles with the woody freshness of juniper berries, the peppery mustiness of patchouli as well as the subtly sour and urinal nuances of Peru balsam. An intriguing drydown ensues. This fascinating composition has minimal projection, remaining a skin scent and fostering its use in close quarters; however, its longevity is very good. This captivating, masculine scent is very layered and complex, and should be held in high regard in one's wardrobe.

    Lanvin's Avant Garde.

    Less extroverted than Spicebomb, with honey in place of cinnamon. They have the same warm sweet tobacco drydown on my skin, taking their different paths to arrive there. I like them both and do not find owning both redundant.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    I also have never sniffed a tobacco note in Spicebomb. I do like the fragrance a lot.
