    Default Very similar...

    So I have been wearing SpiceBomb this past week, and I have noticed the dry down after an hour or so smells like Chanel Egoiste. I'm getting a cinnamon " Big Red Gum" vibe and notes to it." Mixed with a tea note" I have had a few frag head friends, and Co workers ask me if I was wearing that Chanel. So I'm not the only one who's getting this out of the dry down. Anyone else get this out of SpiceBomb? Overall I do like this as it was a blind buy.

    Spicebomb smells like 95% copy of 1 million. But I don't really pick up the Egoiste similarity. But I do see how you could think that. Sort of...

    To my untrained nose (and possibly faulty memory), SpiceBomb smells like DK Men Unleaded, and I like them both.

    I see more similarity between Spicebomb and Gucci PH II.

    I don't think it's similar to Egoiste really, even at drydown.

    I do think Spicebomb is SOMEWHAT similar to Burberry London though.

    I think most people associate a fragrance smell with top notes only. I haven't tried Egoiste recently enough to remember the drydown, but I've often noticed very similar drydowns among some pretty different scents. I'll have to check this one out. I like Spicebomb, but the opening isn't my favorite part.

    I think it's probably the tobacco and spices (chili, cinnamon).

    The scents in my collection that I most closely relate to Spicebomb are Lapidus Black Soul, CK One Shock, 1 Million, & Black XS. None are exactly the same, but they all fall in the same family of fragrances to me. I think the one that shares similarities with all of these is Black Soul. (I get the pink pepper & saffron from Spicebomb, the fruity bubblegum/mint accord from 1 Million, and a bit of the balmy bittersweetness of Black XS all rolled into this one).

    As far as Egoiste, I really don't think any of these smell similar to it. (and that's ok with me as I'm not an Egoiste fan.).
