I own HOT Always, Brooklyn and Eau de New York. Of these 3, easily the best for men is Eau De New York.. check my review if you wish to know why.. I have not smelled a Bond No.9 I dislike, though. Having tried Wall Street, Hamptons, Scent of Peace, Riverside Drive, Nuts de Noho, Silver Factory, and Harrod's for Men.. my fav for men is easily Eau De NY.. I love it for a lot of reasons, but what I love most about it is how it morphs into something completely different than within the first minute. It changes into a masculine, dressy, soapy fragrance and lasts days.. well it lasts 15 hours for me.. one spray. That's not an exaggeration. I don't get the bashing of this company.. their frags to me are amazing. FYI HOT Always is amazing too, a masterpiece, but you can't wear that daily.. it's too dressy. My vote easily goes to Eau de NY.. it's masculine without being offensive. Women COULD wear it too.. and since many don't, the women love it. I receive a ton of compliments on it.
