* I don’t get the Bollywood theme at all. To me Bollywood is loud and vibrant colors. BoB is more mature and refined.
* The rose lightens a bit as the spices come into play.
* Guys shouldn’t be afraid of this rose, it’s not girlie at all.
Summary: I am impressed again by such a high quality fragrance from Smell Bent at such a reasonable price. If you are a fan of Le Labo Rose 31 but don’t want to shell out $150, try Bollywood or Bust. I will go a step further. Layer Amouage Lyric Man of Creed Spice and Woods and you’ve got the luxury version of BoB. If you are an a budget and want to smell “expensive,” this is a scent for you. Longevity of the base is incredible at over 12 hours.
Smell Bent Bollywood or Bust is available from Indiescents and the Smell Bent website.
