Reviews of Wall Street

Bond No. 9 Wall Street gets a lot of discussion but as with many of the house's offerings, I'm unimpressed. Its opening is very fresh but dries down a bit ozonic and uninteresting.

It's a mix of cucumber, lemon, lavender, vetiver, and seaweed, and to my nose these accords don't harmonize too well.

Overall, it's an experience of citrus that veers off in a few directions but mainly seems like a cheap designer fragrance without a purpose. I don't get much nuance in this at all, and probably wouldn't ever reach for it again. Just too much seaweed.

Really dove in and went for a 4 spay from my sampler this morning. I get an almost aquatic vibe from it clean and crisp. But it has a SEE ME NOW attitude. The note I find calling for attention is Cayenne pepper. Really like the layers of this one. Definitely a unique fragrance in a sea of overwhelming simple aqua fragrances.

An excellent aquatic from Bond No9. Wall St. opens very crisp and clean, with a strong fresh cucumber and salt note. This lasts easily an hour or more and sets the stage for a long lasting salty ocean note paired with a light lavender. Wall St. reminds me more of a boat aquatic scent, as it's more about ocean air and green salt water than beach sand and suntan lotion. Sillage is better than average and longevity is easily 8 hours, which I've found typical of most of the Bond line.

I don't think this compares with any of the Creed aquatics other than the ambergris and musk in the base. Wall St lasts much longer than any Creed, but perhaps is more synthetic, however the ocean air scent is still authentic smelling.

I like this as a day fragrance, better for warm weather. Could be worn to the office easily, as it's fairly light and distinguished. I'm debating a purchase. Thumbs Up.

I absolutely adore the opening and midnotes. A unique but still acceptable aquatic but the fragrance falls apart during the drydown. It never gets bad, but it's not stable either. It lasts 12-18 hours, but this was the wrong fragrance to have this kind of longevity. It's a flawed fragrance but the good is good enough to make one want to own it.

This has the (very good) synthetic vibe and feel of CGD 2 (which is meant to recreate an ink smell). Bond NO 9 creates a similar accord to create it's own version of the smell of fresh money. The longevity for me is very good. It lasted on a piece of clothing for 4 days, and stays with me all day (8 hours). It is fresh and summery without being clean and sterile. I think this is one of my favs from this line.

Genre: Aquatic

The initial resemblance to Creed's Silver Mountain Water is pretty explicit - even shocking. True, Wall Street is a bit less sweet, and the pronounced cucumber top note makes it the more blatantly aquatic of the pair...but the accusations of plagiarism are still hard to ignore.

The Bond scent doesn't distinguish itself too much from Silver Mountain Water as it ages, either, despite a different list of middle and base notes. Nor is the drydown any improvement on the original. Next to the Creed's ambergris reconstruction Wall Street's synthetic wood drydown smells harsh and bitter. I'm not impressed.
