    Welcome to you! I'd go with Spicebomb of the two, although I also like A*Men.

    Welcome!

    Spicebomb is the better, classier and more versatile scent, IMO.

    Spicebomb is one of the most tiresome, common, boring, tedious, least thought out, no mystery having, made for the mall loitering masses things I've ever smelled.

    A*Men is excellent if you can handle that kind of heavy gourmand oriental.

    Agreed, Angel for men is such an interesting fragrance.

    I voted for Spicebomb, but if you want to step up from that, go with Histoires de Parfums 1899 Hemingway. A scent that is somewhat similar in a lot of ways, but done a little better.

    spicebomb for me. AMen is a bit too heavy and certainly not a year round fragrance no matter how light you go.

    Spice Bomb not my cup of tea on neither but SB is my pick as a better scent Eventhough Amen was an innovative scent for its time and still spoken well of my many followers of it but nevertheless you will get more compliments with SB and smells better also...Cheerios

    And if you want to bring even higher Then get "Une nuit a Doha by Stephane Humbert is similar but boy this stuff will have you wanting to eat your own self superbly blended and will blow SB and Hemingway out the water no pun intended

    Interesting. I have only worn Une Nuit a Doha once so far, and initial impressions can change for sure from a single wearing, but I thought it was pretty good, but a little powdery/feminine for me. Mentally, I thought of it as a "Chergui pour Elle". I will need to give it another wearing soon to see if I get a similar vibe as Hemingway.

    It depends on what you are looking for...if you want something something for the day and work, then go with SpiceBomb. If you are looking for something to wear going out, the get A*Men. Having said that, I wear both to work and in almost any given situation. I would say that SB is more versatile and could be worn in the hotter months, where AM might be a little more difficult to pull off this time of year.
