    Default Spicebomb vs. Aventus

    I think they are fantastic fragrances for the spring and summer.

    What is your favorite?

    Aventus is year round. Aventus is one of my favorites of all time.

    Spicebomb I feel is more for fall and winter.

    They are completely different.
    One is more metro (spicebomb)
    the other is for the alpha man (aventus)

    Both are very good, Aventus prob has a much higher fan base here on BN including myself & Spice Bomb is relatively new, however, I own both & like them both...

    Antidote is much better than Spicebomg imho, but doesn't get the same love.

    Aventus and Spicebomb are both 8/10 for me, Aventus gets the edge.
    Current Top 10:

    Dior Homme
    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Rive Gauche
    Fahrenheit
    New Haarlem
    Jubilation XXV
    Neroli Portofino
    Virgin Island Water
    Green Irish Tweed
    Straight to Heaven

    I don't dig SB at all really. It's sophisticated Red Hots. Idk about that. I like cinnamon, just not like that. And I don't like cinnamon on a man. I prefer AV..but could use a little less pineapple. Smoky pineapple makes me think of a kebab over the bbq, not my fave thing at all. But the woods make it nice.

    Depends if one is in the mood for Red Hots or smoky pineapple kebabs.

    Spicebomb is my go to night out fragrance, can't say I enjoy Aventus as much and it's a bit too expensive.

    I don't know if I'd be comfortable wearing Spicebomb in the summer, but Aventus (from what I've tried) can easily be worn year round.

    Despite the horrible Hype, Aventus is a great fragrance that smells like no other. The quality is better than SpiceBomb. SpiceBomb may have greater projection and longevity though....
