An odd, but original fragrance from Bond No9. The opening is a spicy sweet cinnamon, that is somewhat reminiscent of red hots candy. Not sure if that's got anything to do with the name, but it doesn't last long and gives way quickly to a rose-carnation over a loud patchouli and leather base. It's masculine, but ultimately a dull disappointment after the edgy opening.
I liked it only just a little, and definitely wouldn't buy it. Neutral is the best I could rate it.
A precious sensual classic fragrance that mature guys with high style and subdued taste in scents will appreciate it.H.O.T ALWAYS is bold so use with care.2 spray is enough. Very classy and rich smelling.in other words Tenacious,Glamorous, Voluptuous,Strong, Woody,Warm and Gorgeous.
Bold top notes by Cinnamon and spicy notes harmonize over a full and luxurious base rife with masculine and dark wood notes for a strong and sensual scent that makes a trail of mystery in the evening air and will make people stop in their tracks.Leather, patchouli,cinnamon are more prominent and heavy here
H.O.T ALWAYS is perfect for a Hot mood with that special someone in the Winter weather.It is definitely for Evening wear and I suggest it to a self confident character(30 and older)who likes classic fragrances.really worth trying but not for everyone.
Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
H.O.T. Always has an interesting opening: sweet and spicy, and yes, somehow, yes, "hot." A big and rather doughy rose note pops out very quickly, and soon stands front-and-center in the composition. For some time H.O.T. Always remains a spiced rose fragrance, and an appealing one at that. The rose and spice accord is not overly sweetened, and this helps distinguish the scent from some others in the same mold. Next up are leather and an earthy vetiver, which displace the rose and lead the into a drier central accord, still wrapped in spicy carnations and cinnamon.
All of this takes place in less than half an hour. Then "Poof!" it's gone, leaving behind a mild, non-descript spiced leather drydown. A disappointing finish after a strong start. Any civet in this blend eludes me completely, and the last moments of H.O.T. Always are put to shame by more profound leather scents like Antaeus and Knize Ten.
heavy patchouly /leather drydown..quite similar to Givenchy Gentleman...thick projection
Bn9 has never been accused of being "subtle" This loud fragrance is mainly Patchouli and some aldehyde brash sharp note that dries down to a warm patchouli...trouble is it reminds me too much of an old lady. An old lady sitting in a hot attic room.
