Brooklyn fragrance notes

Reviews of Brooklyn

Half way decent opening of grapefruit/juniper...metallic ozoney quality that puts it in the ballpark of Himalaya/SMW/Erolfa...weak and watery...fading fast...doesn't smell niche...smells common and for the mass market...move along , nothing to see here...vague semi woody finish...wait... thought I caught a trace of leather...might be just wishfull thinking or my imagination...

What the hell is this?? What are these notes? This dones't smell like anything. It smells like a metallic citrus opening, almost reminiscent of Creed SMW, and before I turn my head back to sniff my arm, I smell nothing. That's with 3 good wearings from a sample I paid $6 for. Worst $6 spent ever. Come on.. I'd expect this from Nautica or CK, but not from a fragrance that retails for over $300 a bottle.

If you see this one, just ignore it completely. It's the biggest joke ever.

Super underrated fragrance that layers well with other fragrances (especially Riverside Drive). It's not too strong, BUT may be cloying if over-applied. It would probably work well with New York Musk or Montauk. If you're looking for a signature work scent, this would work. The retail price is a bit much to pay for something this subtle. I got my bottle from a YouTube fragrance reviewer who didn't like it.

Surprising to see such a split opinion on Brooklyn by Bond No9, as I really like this fragrance, aside from the initial opening. The first few minutes are indeed a gut punch of Iso E Super and grapefruit, but it quickly settles into a very nice, long lasting, juniper, cedar and leather. To my nose this is a clean laundry and fresh air scent and reminds me of one of the Penhaligon fragrances, but with super improved performance and wearability. Another comparison I had was to Terre d' Hermes, but with much less cedar and no gun flint notes.

Bond No9 fragrances have trademark longevity on my skin, and Brooklyn was no different, although the body of the scent is relatively light and fresh. Brooklyn would make an excellent office scent for warm weather, and could be worn formal or casual. I really like this one and right after Riverside Drive and Great Jones, would be my next favorite Bond.

Thumbs Up for me.

For some reason, the grapefruit combined with another herby/woody ingredient (not sure if it's juniper) gives it a peach-like smell, which leans it further toward the aquatic. I don't detect the cardamom but the leather is apparent as more of a base note. I haven't noticed much evolution in the dry down. It's certainly a light fragrance that is more geared towards warm weather.

Simply put, I wouldn't reach for it as a summer option. It fits into the fresh and woody subcategories, which, with the grapefruit, creates an odd combination. I enjoy the grapefruit in C.O. Bigelow Elixir White, for example, but in Brooklyn it does't pair well with the other notes. The abovementioned peachy vibe is one I do not find appealing. Despite the odd combination, however, Brooklyn doesn't strike me as unique or outstanding as some of the other Bond No. 9 entries that I like or own, but it does at least seem to speak to the signature freshness with which most of their offerings tend to be associated. Still, I don't see these notes going well together, and both projection and longevity are limited on my skin.
