Reviews of Spice Blend

This smells like cheap nail varnish. Something is really off putting , a balsamic melony vibe. I remember reading a review of Dior's trio of vetiver tonka, spice blend and amber. The summary was that these are fairly airy diaphanous without much substance and could have done with more depth.
I agree. The vetiver tonka barely makes it to vetiver tonka status and to think you are paying over £200 for a bottle . Absurd. The Spice Blend is quite frankly embarassing to be seen with and should be flushed down the toilet, the Amber is actually a nice light dry amber and if you like that kind of thing is not bad at all but it leans feminine instead of unisex so this trio are an expensive washout for me.

Rum and spices (cinnamon and pink pepper) with woody undertones. Supposed to be bay rum in there. I haven't smelled that before .
It's transparent airy and slightly sweet . Some bubblegum vibe in opening . It has something that reminds me a bit of balade sauvage which makes it steer away from being a masculine spicy fragrance.

Spice Blend starts off strongly masculine, dries down to more fem, and then back to masculine again with the skin scent. Dried fruits and cola toward the top of the development while it becomes softer, more powdery and metallic in the drydown.

I really don't get any Spicebomb similarities. To me this is more classic, mature and refined. It's dressed up for a formal, older affair...not for the mall, a college party or for clubbing. It's not really even a date scent to me, more of an "already married and just want to smell nice for your wife" scent.

Performance is good all around. I'm able to easily smell this for 9+ hours and the projection during the first few hours is very good.

Spice blend. Yup. The name says it all. It projects more masculine than feminine in my opinion. Subtle but good performances.

Niche Spicebomb.

Opens up with the same sweet bubblegum pink pepper as Spicebomb et all, which reminds me of the bubblegum mouth rinse fluoride from the 90s, or just the ambiance of a dentist office. Much lighter and airier than Spicebomb. Really, this is a mildly spiced sweet fragrance, easily capable of being worn by either sex. Smells good, no rough edges. Pretty expensive, it is close call between neutral and thumbs up. Right down the middle.

A volatile evanescent pink spicy/musky/semi-oriental frankly unnecessary and pale. It seems to smell something a la Maria Lux Deeply, Heeley Agarwood or several Amouage Opus. The density is kind of ephemeral and the aroma morphs soon towards something waving in the air, rosey, sweetly spicy, slightly resinous, soapy/poudree, almost candied and definitely ambery-musky. Anonimous and a low temperament spicy concoction.
