Does this house have any outstanding scents? That being sai, Union Square is one of the more bland Bond's I have tried. Hum drum green floral that doesn't make any sort of statement.
WHAT the cock is this?!?!
Here's what I get: 1) alcohol 2) Pantene Pro-V shampoo 3) clarified butter (like Indian ghee, or the type you'd dip your lobster into.
BOND No. 9 is a very talented & capable house.
They have put out many exquisite (arguable) masterpieces, worthy of $ 210 for a bottle.
I get the feeling that when they are short of inspiration, they would just as soon put a rush-job on some crap, rather than wait until they have something worthy to put on the market?
First spray smells like AquaNet hairspray! All that alcohol. But, then it calms down into a melon-y, aquatic scent. Cool Water-ish. Nondescript aquatic smell. It's pleasant and very familiar. I'm sure there are a dozen or so shampoos with this kind of smell. White Rain is probably one of them.
A light, fresh, green floral. You can have one of these for a lot less money! Very decent, refreshing on a hot day, but overpriced and redundant. A disappointment after the stellar Silver Factory.
Yes, a green fruity-floral built around freesia, lily of the valley, and green notes. This reminds me A LOT of the women's version of Gucci Envy. The fruity note in Union Square smells like apple to me, rather than the sweeter peach and pineapple in Envy. I've often wished Envy was less sweet, but it is also more effervescent than Union Square, and I'd suspected that if the sweetness was dampened, the well-rounded sparkling quality would dim as well. This seems borne out in Union Square. I'm glad I saved a truckload of pennies and found Envy first; it's one of my very favorites. I want to give Union Square a thumbs up, but considering the cost and lack of originality, this otherwise good fragrance doesn't merit it.
