This juice is so powerful it triggered a full-scale terror alert on one of the biggest airports in United Kingdom (Edinburgh) in 2012 when a bottle of Spicebomb cologne was mistaken for a hand grenade.

Does this bottle look like a hand grenade? Hell yeah. You even have to pull the pin on it or else it won’t spray. Is the cologne inside explosive and powerful enough to make your head pop? I think it is. Spicebomb is the ultimate club fragrance for people who want to get noticed.

The long lived opening is sharp and spicy and transforms into a mellow and very calming pipe tobacco mixed with gingery cinnamon, lots of cinnamon. If I were cheeky I would change the name to Cinnabomb!

In contrast to most modern high street colognes, Spicebomb is far from being linear.
Every time I wear it I smell different notes. It is very complex and it stands out from the crowd of fresh, aquatic and citrus colognes that are so popular right now.

I got it from my wife as an anniversary gift (she sampled it before – always sample, never buy blind!).

I’m not saying that she’s chasing me around a house every time I wear it but…she only sometimes chases me when I wear it :)

It is fun but just enough, it is sweet but not too much. Very huggable, warming and what’s the most important – sensual and adored by both him and her.
Perfect scent for Valentine’s Day winter walk…
