    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.

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

    Can't wait to try this, although I don't think Spicebomb is hard to wear in the heat as it is.

    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.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    A*Men Ultra Zest (2015)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    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.
