    I Love New York for Fathers by Bond No. 9

    Meh. A pretty boring aquatic. It goes on with that popular-but-overused grape drink smell mixed with something sort of grapefruity. Then it's a green aquatic mix of lily and melon and that "seaweed" or "ocean" note that was so popular in the 90's. That's about it. It's not terrible, but a more interesting base could have rescued it from mediocrity. But as such, this could be anything from Hugo Boss or Kenneth Cole or any 3rd tier designer who long ago sold control of their perfumes over to Coty or some other cheap corporation dedicated to releasing uninspired smellalike scents. Sad, because even when Bond does familiar-smelling aquatics (which is a lot of the time), they're usually much more compelling than this.
