    Default Similar to Spicebpmb Extreme but better?

    I like Spicebomb Extreme quite a bit. I like the warm cinnamon winter vibe. Yet it somehow doesnít quite do the trick for me. Maybe itís not as well blended as it could be, or the ingredients arenít the highest quality? I donít know, Iím not an expert.

    If anyone has a recommendation for something thatís similar to Spicebomb but better, basically, Iíd very much appreciate your recommendation. To me, Herod is pretty similar, but too sweet and feminine. Am I crazy or is Herod indeed quite similar just a lot sweeter?

    Anyway, would love to hear suggestions on superior alternatives to Spicebomb Extreme. Best regards

    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, which is its inspiration...

    Also consider Imaginary Authors' Memoirs of a Trespasser, but it is also quite sweet.

    LíOccitane Eau des Baux

    though Spicebomb, and Spicebomb Extreme are both very nice scents. Eau des Baux isnít necessarily better, but itís in the warm, spicy category. Worth checking out, at least. Well-priced, last time I checked.

    Valentino Uomo Intense EDP is very similar, a bit fresher/more masculine, but also a bit less performance for me.
    As far as the Herod/Tobacco Vanille comments; I'd say the late drydown of Spicebomb Extreme is nearly similar, but it's much more spicy (nutmeg for me), less tabac and definitely less sweet for 75% of the wear

    If …goÔste is an allowed response, then let me add Caswell-Massey R“S, which I actually though reminded me of Spicebomb Extreme.

    I also like the Valentino Uomo suggestions.

    +1 for Rehab by Initio as well as Side Effect by Initio, which is slightly different but in the same ballpark, IMO.

    I'm wearing Ted Baker AU (Gold) today. It has cloves and vanilla as it's most prominent notes. I think if you enjoy Spicebomb or Spicebomb Extreme, you might want to give this a try. I see it selling online for less than 50 dollars for the 100 ml bottle, so I'd encourage people to get it now while supplies last.
