    I agree with this.

    Spicebomb smells like a spicy (clove) Christmas candy gumdrop or a spicy Christmas drink.

    A*Men smells like burnt incense with overly sweet nonsense in the background, and its projection is as dense as a brick. People WILL smell you.

    My vote goes to A*men.
    Spicebomb reminds me of the smell of a pencil eraser when I was a kid. Not a bad smell though, but the cocoa-patchouli combo has much more depth, power, presence to my nose.

    They are actually two different "characters" anyway so... Why choose ?

    Hello to you(s) and thanks for your opinions guys. One thing, is the A*Men bottle in black a different fragrance to the silver bottle, or is that just a different design?

    Spicebomb is easier to wear. Like them both, A*Men a little more.

    I also like both; but whilst some of Mugler's flankers are better, compared with the original A*Men I prefer Spicebomb.

    The silver bottle is refillable. That's the only difference. Better in my opinion as you can buy refills for it cheaper than just buying a new bottle of it again.

    Pure Leather is a better version of Amen. It is Amen with the tar note turned down and is much smoother and better balanced. But it is a fall/winter nite fragrance IMO.

    Amen for me. Spicebomb is more versatile, but Amen is way more interesting, unique and fun to wear.

    If you want to get complimented by others, want to wear your cologne on a regular basis, and are considering wearing it to work, get Spicebomb.

    If you want everyone to talk about "the guy who puts on too much cologne", want a bottle untouched for months, and want to get fired, get A*Men.

    In other words - Spicebomb wins this one, no contest.

    Two totally different fragrances, but I prefer Spicebomb of the two.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Love and own both. Edge goes to spicebomb as it is a safer bet in many ways. Amen is awesome too, but it is also a bit more challenging.

    I'm also considering DHI edp, is that better than Spicebomb or A*Men?

    DHI is the only possible choice...Spicebomb used to put me in a bad mood and was given away!

    Spice bomb is just a updated version of One Million, find nothing interesting about it. A*men is more class but if it was between A*men and Dior Homme. I'll take Dior homme as the intense version is hard to find
