A very floral aquatic. Someone else hit the nail on the head...Smells like a floral shampoo. I don't dislike it, but there is no way I would spend $200 for something I can get in a bottle from WalMart and wash my hair with...for 99 cents.

I'm sorry but this is almost offensively bad. The worst Bond I've ever tried. I was hoping for something resembling cut green grass from the bottle but all this is is low quality, sticky, cloying shampoo? I'm also horrified that this is marketed as unisex
It's on the feminine side of unisex. Smells like herbal shampoo, transmogrified into a strong perfume. Not a terrible scent, but certainly not bottle worthy (especially for the price).
I wouldn't call this a completely feminine scent either. When I first tried it I was immediately taken back 20 years to my childhood. I couldn't put a finger on what it smelled like, and then I figured it out. LA LOOKS STYLING GEL! Sexy? No. Intoxicating? Nah. Clean and Fresh? Yup. I like the nostalgia that this scent means to me.
I have to disagree with the reviews that say this is strictly feminine. I'm a male, and I love this one. I especially enjoy the ultra clean, shampoo/ozone type drydown in the mid and base. I find the base similar to another Bond favorite of mine (Andy Warhol Montauk). They share that ozone type note, except it's a bit smoother and sweeter in High Line. I could also see comparisons to Fire Island which is ozone heavy as well. But don't let the reviews discourage you from giving this one a shot if you enjoy clean/fresh scents. (guys included).
I first smelled this about a year ago and definitely thought that it was not for me. Recently, I got a wild hair to try it again, so some fragrance friends sent me some samples to try. For some reason, a year later, this fragrance really worked well for me. It is wonderful by itself, but my favorite blend is to mix it with NY Oud. By itself it is fresh and green, with just a bit of tartness and floral. Lasts forever, and most have great projection, because I always get compliments when I wear it. Next time, I'm going to buy to 100 ml bottle!
Hello ladies! I'm a bottle of sweet green aquatic floral shampoo. Care to purchase me? Oh. Oh my no! That's a dollar bill, you'll need A HUNDRED TIME MORE THAN THAT! Whoa hey wait! Where are you going? Why are you walking over to Bath and Body Works? They don't got nothing like me over there. Ah, I'm so lonely.
Whoa ya.. this needs to be changed from unisex marketing to female. I assume it's unisex because they probably have trouble selling it. No disrespect to collectors or people who may think this is good on a man. It's not. Bottom line. Rickbr pretty much sums it up in a few words. To me, it starts off as a feminine watermelon/cucumber body spray, then turns into a shampoo. If ya wanna smell like that, then by all means.. go for it. With that said, I'd be lying if I gave it a thumbs down, because the smell itself is not bad. But any other way you look at it, it's a thumbs down unless you're a chick.
whew! It's got that really strong Bond style going on and it's a doozy. I don't get the grass or deeper notes; I get an overpowering floral with a headache-inducing ozone/aldehyde blast that made my eyes water. I really wanted to like this one especially since it came as a nice surprise in the mail from Bond's free VIP program but man! Speaking of man, I can't imagine this flower-power on a guy.
Definitely a high line... shampoo It smells like a fruity-grassy expensive shampoo.
