Beautifully blended composition from Bond no 9.
On initial application, I can detect very subtle violet, cassis and vanilla; then very light bergamot and lily of the valley make an appearance which is very light and refined... after an hour or so the base notes of cinnamon, patchouli, amber and sandalwood take over for ages...more of a feminine scent but very unisex if you like sweet vanilla and ambery scents...
Big thumbs up...!!!
This is one lovely scent!! I really don't get the Cajun connection (I have been to NO several times), but this is smooth, gourmand, superbly composed perfume. Nothing stands out,,everything seems to meld together creating one fantastic scent that lasts for hours!!! Now what,,,I need a FB?!
I received New Orleans as a anniversary present from my husband this year. I must say the falcon is very breathtaking in person.My husband was told by the SA at Saks in Nola, that the house of Bond no.9 only made 150 bottles of New Orleans and that no more would be made, they only have 11 bottles left now!
New Orleans is a lovely scent, I find it very hard to write a review here I love this one too much! If you like any of the notes listed you would love this;like the Big Easy this fragrance is just a very wearable gourmand, with each note transposing and floating in layers with each other, each developing on the skin with a warm and subtle glow.I'm very impressed with the Cajun base, I love patchouli, sandalwood,and amber with sprinkles of cinnamon. I close my eyes and can feel the rhythm of Nola. I'm just glad this fragrance smells nothing like crawdads, beer, whiskey or sweet leaf that you might catch whiffs of down on Decatur St.
