    Interesting....a "fresh" version of something named Spicebomb seems kind of counter intuitive. But the note list looks nice, so maybe it will be a somewhat interesting warm weather scent!

    Spicebomb is too popular for this NOT to happen.

    I just don't see this as being anything more than a weaker version of the original ... like most Eau Fraiches.

    It was only a matter of time. I guess it may work for some people who live in hotter climates that can't wear Spicebomb as easily as I could.

    Still, I'm going in with my expectations low.

    Original did nothing for me other than its a cool bottle. Hopefully this one is better

    I like the original Spicebomb, but couldn't bring myself to buy a bottle. I'll definitely sample this flanker when it hits Sephora.

    I love Spicebomb, but I really don't think I need this one. It had better have a really interesting twist, or I will pass.

    I too love Spicebomb. I don't see a purpose of this version but it's been such a hit for V&R that it's been bound to happen. I'll be trying it just for curiosity sake but am not expecting anything groundbreaking.

    Nice, I think Spicebomb was probably one of the better releases in the past 5, maybe even 10 years. This flanker certainly looks promising, can't wait to try it.

    Exactly my first thought......sounds like a contradiction!

    I loved antidote, and really liked spicebomb, so V&R are a positive company in my eyes. Looking forward to trying this.

    Default New Fragrance: Spicebomb Eau Fraiche

    So, I just saw that V&R are coming out with a new, lighter version of Spicebomb. I for one welcome this lighter version especially since the original is far too heavy and cloying for spring/summer wear. I enjoy Spicebomb's character, but it's simply too much in the warmer months. I'll definitely give this little booger a try when it comes out.

    Its gonna have to be way, way lighter for me to enjoy it. I find the original almost unwearable in it's heavy, hissy amber base.

    So is the new bottle white? Or frosted glass (rather than the original clear glass)?

    I feel exactly the same way! I love SB, but for some the reason this does not interest me in the least. I'm not even curious.

    Hermès was pretty successful with their Eau Très Fraîche. This might actually work. But if it fails, I'll treasure MCG's quote: "No, just no."

    I've tried it. It's exactly what you would expect, a lighter citrusy take on the original.

    Is it similar to GPHII? I wanna try it, sephora maybe?

    Default Re: Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Eau Fraiche ~ new fragrance

    Yes, Sephora in Canada has it. I think it's less similar to Gucci PH II than the original is, but I smelled it quickly on a test strip. I'll go back soon and get a couple samples.

    I get around 10-12 hrs with Spicebomb. Strangely enough I got over 14 hours with this one when I tested it over the weekend.

    Out in the UK now. Tried it today and found it very similar to the original, lighter, a mild hint of citrus for me but, to my non expert nose, not very far from the original. I own and love Spicebomb already, don't see any need to buy this when there are so many others out there to spend my money on.

    In related news Nestle has just released a summer version of its famous Nestle Hot Chocolate. Its called Nestle Eau Fraiche. Nestle Eau Fraîche is meant as a summer version of the original Hot Chocolate. The notes include the Original Hot Chocolate Mix with the new and updated Warm Water. The Warm Water is a new take on the Hot Water that made Nestle famous for generations...
