    Genre: Leather

    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.

    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.

    A skanky-ass camphor/patchouli combo that brings to mind vintage Givenchy Gentlemen and Giorgio for Men. Has monumental sillage and I can still smell it on my arm after one spray that I put on 24 hours ago, and I've even taken a shower since then.

    I'm definitely getting this when I get the chance. If you want to intimidate people, look no further.

    Is this a joke? It is a pre reformulated version of Givenchy Gentleman, of which there are zillions of knock offs in Argentina. For those not caring about brands and price tags, go for the version by Laboratorios Wels, Tabac Black. Hard to find, look after it in small perfume shops in neighborhoods. It sells at 10 % of Bond's price tag.

    Wear it and tell the world you paid USD 300 for it.

    BTW, tha actual reformulation of Givenchy Gentleman is quite good. So you will be doing yourself a favor buying the original one. If you don't justify its price, go for the Wels knock off. And if you buy Bond... well, caveat emptor.
