Opens up very synthetic, like thing i use to clean bathroom, soar, acidic, concentrated citrusy, unpleasant, i rarely got such associations before. Later develops into citrus-green smell.i think this is one of the worst things i have ever tried:-)
Central Park by Bond No. 9, 2004
Rated #1069 in Fragrances
In Bond fashion, this is a loud brash fragrance. Green and citrus, with florals, trouble is there is a strange odor of children's balloons. The smell when you open a bag of balloons, stretch one and begin to blow it up. That scent doesn't go with verbena and lime...
Nasty stuff. Did Robertet have a bad experience in Central Park? Stale and sour, with notes of cleaning fluid.
an excellent green and fresh EdT. Something original, particular, but very herbal and energizing anyway; it opens with a hint of citrusy notes, but suddendly you'll enjoy a mix of sage, verbena, jasmine and maybe other almost balsamic herbs; I guess some part of moss and patchouli in the drydown. The result is gorgeous, even if too expensive, like all Bond n. 9 products.
Mostly candy-sweet neroli mixed with lime-flavored skittles. It had an interesting old-fashioned top of lemony bergamot mixed with lavender that had me hoping for a chypre, but alas, these burned off quickly, leaving basically a hyper-sweet green fruity floral for men. Hours in, after the lime candy smell finally died down, it got more grassy and basically smelled like Bond's Eau de New York, a scent I personally find much more well balanced between sweet and green than Central Park. I'm voting neutral because it's not bad, just too sweet.
G R E E N G R E E N G R E E N! So herbal, so much fern, freshly cut dewy grass,verbena, basil, incredibly fresh and clean like a beautiful waterfall, this has the same effect on me as Opal Fruits (I refuse to call them Starburst). This perfume is made to make your mouth water! And the subtle patchouli drydown is just my cup of tea. Oh, and I'm a woman, and I think this is perfect for male or female fragrance lovers! OK, I've come back, eight hours after applying this fragrance. Still stand by what I said above, but now I'm getting Radox. This perfume is the fragrance version of pine bubble bath. Glad I got a Bob Bon box version and not the whole flask.
To me this is a very bright and crisp \ greener version of Gucci's Envy. Replace the darkness that envy has with basil. It has a feminine edge to it but it's still masculine enough to be worn be either sex. Not one of my favorite bonds but it's wearable.
VERY green with plenty of bitter greens, verbena, lime citrus and plenty of wood. It's very pleasant and extremely green and long lasting as typical Bonds. It's not great but it's pretty good. If you love your fragrances super green this is definitely one you should check out.
I first reviewed CENTRAL PARK based on a purse spray about a year ago at "The Other" major fragrance website. After owning a bottle for some time, I think that it's time to reaffirm our vows. Wow, I love this stuff, especially on hot days such as we have in Boston right now: 92F. As I walked to the library this afternoon, I was enveloped in a big cloud of bitter greens and linden blossom. There is something slightly edgy and almost too loud about this basil-rich, lightly floralized (lily-of-the-valley) composition, but it manages to stay just short of going too far. CENTRAL PARK is neither masculine nor feminine to my nose. It is also not a typical green offering--I'd call this creation sui generis. In the interest of truth in reviewing, I should add that I only wear this perfume in the heat. In fact, one day last winter when I took a whiff of it, I found it not at all appealing. But for the summertime, it's a winner in my perfume book!
Just bought a bottle today. One of my favorite warm weather fragrances. Crisp, clean, green opening that settles down to a long lasting fresh woodsy green experience with the slightest whisper of patchouli. This and Eau de New York are my favorite Bond fragrances for work. I highly recommend this, and even though my partner works at Saks, I have no problem paying full price for this at the Bond No. 9 store. It's that good.
