Reviews of Bleecker Street

Ok, I had problems with rating this - I erred towards thumbs up, but in the end went with neutral. There's absolutely nothing wrong with Bleecker St, in fact it's rather nice. Starts off with very juicy tones, and whilst they continue into the mid-notes, the fragrant wood does bolster them from below.

However, about 2 hours into wearing it (and with reasonable sillage), it just seemed to break apart. I don't get the sour tones people are mentioning, but what I do get is just a generic 'nice smell'. In fact, it smells pretty much like Curve by Liz Claiborne.

So yeah, not bad, but what was a good start just fizzled out a little on me at least. Sillage is reasonable, longevity is good (it's 10 hours later and although it's close to the skin, it's definitely noticeable).

Again, erring back and forth between ratings. I quite liked Curve, so that might be part of it. However, when all's said and done I'll say try it, but try a sample rather than jumping in with both feet, particularly at the price point of Bond.

Herbal/floral and somewhat aquatic. This is perhaps slightly more masculine than feminine. I often prefer my fragrances more on the masculine side and love herbal fragrances too. The thing that's holding me back here is that price tag. Some Bond's can be brilliant but this one seems to lacklustre. It's something I could instantly forget. Not terrible but not great either. Perhaps well suited to cooler weather.

Silliage and longlevity are both quite good

An optimistic,cheerful component present in its evolution on the skin.this is originally niche-level scent,the quality,complexity and sophistication are all there.not a scent that screams sex but not unsexy either.a classy blend of wild blackberries and clean the very refined lady who catches the roguishly handsome stable boy's eye and lets him know she is off for a walk in the woods.Woody,Fruity, Aromatic,Unisex,Sensuous,Fresh,Casual,Night or day all at the same time.

It starts out succulent with blackberry noes over deep oakmoss and what smells to me like a rich fruit liqueur.the greenness from the viole leaf leaves adds to the freshness. while the dry down is a soft patchouli vanilla with wiffs of cinnamon.i was expecting it to be a dark summer scent but it is quite a bit different.perfect for middle aged gentlemen&gentlewomen.totally if you love a lovely summery perfume with dominant notes of blackberry then you will not be disappointed.


Longevity?Very Good on my skin.

Nice violet blast on the initial spray. The patchouli calms down the composition to a decent wood, amber and vanilla fragrance. Not bad, but not worth the price IMO.

Bleeker Street is just like about a dozen other fragrances that use violet in the composition. I can't tell if Bleeker is supposed to be a green fragrance because there is a somewhat fougre touch going, but it's smothered by the ambery-vanilla base. It's masculine and non-offensive, but not memorable at all.

One of those ubiquitous grassy-green pseudo-aquatic designer scents that smells rather pleasant from a distance, but gratingly annoying up close with the house trademark woody amber base fixative overload. Yes, it succeeds in extending the scent's longevity but considering the base's abrasive and overbearingly synthetic profile? No, thanks. I'll pass. My non-perfumista wife sums it even more succinctly - with a sneeze.
