    Re: Article: New Fragrances: Bond No. 9 to launch 'I Love NY for Earth Day' and 'I Love NY for Mothe

    As well as usual for a Bond's creation we have also in here an almost promissing beginning finally morphing in to an olfactory drama (in the sense of synthetic candied mess). The main ILNY for The Earth Day's note (expecially along a first stage) is the lily of the valley, a liquid (for a part of the trip I mean orangy and almost aqueous) lily of the valley surrounded by liquid tangerine and by a sort of almost candied orchid/tuberose accord. This fragrance is (In a wrong and un-natural way) an ode to the romantic and intense note of lily of the valley and the yet notable tuberose is almost accessorial. There is for sure a lingering greeness in the background (probably the unique appreciable element of the recipe) which can be detected for a while as undertone, a sort of green/earthy/rooty (orris roots too?) vegetal undertone lingering under you nose as a ghost appearing and again disappearing. The floral presence is not properly indolic under my nose but more precisely sparkling, pungent, almost fizzy but in a sort of weirdly candied and juicy way. The more the aroma evolves the more a dominant shampoo/cosmetic sort of powerfully simil-berrish vibe keeps enveloping the elements with its loud soapy synthetic vanilla/musks accord. At this point it seems your skin to be moisturized by a violet/lily bar of soap frankly lacking any idea of class and refinement and with almost no texture. Powerful, somehow disturbing sillage and longevity. Definitely thumbs down, I'm sorry Bond.
    P.S: after 3 or 4 hours from the first spray I have to say that the berrish/candied type of soapiness performing in the central stage and the first dry down phase tends to almost disappear leaving the scene to a more "human", ambery and tollerable floral/musky woodiness (the orchid/tuberose finally appears more noticeable) which restrains the pungency and releases a gentler feminine floral sophistication.

    I'll try them, but I hate to think they're just pumping these out for easy money.

    Well, the last 3 they released were awful, other than For Her... So let's hope this time around there's an improvement!
