    Default Spicebomb, still

    Against almost all odds I ended up buying a 150ml bottle of Spicebomb.
    And now I wonder: has it been reformulated ? It is from August 2013 and it seems to be a little too weak, I mean,should one expect something close to a bomb, really? The sprayer releases a sort of dense mist, and I applied about 4 to 6 mists on my arm for a test.
    Still, I think I like it so far. It's smells like MKors in the opening but better and a bit more modern. Then passes close to MB Individuel and Jacques Bogart pH, nicer and more friendly, again. And setles down as a more complex, smoothier and classier version of DsQ2 Potion. Not being very strong is a bonus for me. So, anybody knows about a reformulation, this early? Thanks,

    PS.: I don't see much connection to EdB and Gucci pH II.

    No connection at all to EdB or GPH2, great standalone frag with amazing performance.

    Haven't heard anything about a reform although I was very surprised to discover this ones only a year old, feels like its been around for ages.

    There's no connection for me, too. It seems that a lot have been said about it, so much hate, so we tend to think it's been here for a much longer time than actually it has. thanks, JM

    Seems a little bit weak for you? Ask someone else if he/she can smell it from a far distance.

    I haven't heard of any either....but I bought a bottle when it was very first released (within the first week or so) and the projection was strong and the scent was sweet. I kept it for about a year, and then sold it (because I wasn't using it a lot). However, when I smelled and sampled it the other day - the first time that I had done either in several months - it DID seem a bit more tame and a bit less sweet that the bottle that I had. So I wondered exactly the same thing that the OP asked about.....that's why I clicked on this thread to read and see what I could find out.

    Thanks for the reply, and very interesting. For me it is the first time I smell spciebomb but always been afraid it was a sort of bomb scent, and yes, it is not that sweet I mus also say. i am very happy with it. and it was a blind buy.

    Can't speak on the a reformulation or not, but I got a couple samples recently and was surprised how short lived this "bomb" was on my skin. Still loved the scent though and will probably end up getting a bottle

    I was initially truned off by the name, but once sampled, I decided it was not only full bottle worthy, but also got a backup. Not a bomb at all, but easy on the trigger.

    Indeed, that happened to me, too. But still some people talk about it being a bomb in both projection and longevity, ideal for clubbing, etc... Anyway, about 10 hours later I can still smell it and it seems quite floral and the cinnamon has desapeared. Although Spicebomb does remind me other scents I think it is better and more contemporary smelling than the others.

    Mind you, I own a bottle. But this scent just doesn't live up to the hype for me. However, my wife simply adores it on me, it doesn't give me a headache, so I entertain the thought occasionally.

    I keep wanting to test out HdP 1899 Hemingway since it's described to be a better version of Spicebomb, and I get the Eau des Baux connection - which I actually liked due to the perceived dryness and vanilla that was done rather well - but as popular as it is, it would be darn near disastrous for them to reformulate so quickly.

    But I will say this, I used to go with only one spray, now I can handle two. Perhaps we're just getting used to it?
