hi i did the same thing today..only i went to specfically to sniff Fire island by Bond 9 and i really think it lacks period .does it smell good? yes it smells good ..but if i want to smell like im wearing an intense layer of coppertone ( i heard it smelled like bain de solei ) NOT! that would have been alot better i love that smell but coppertone??? what were they thinking ..god im embarrassed for Laurice Rahme...but if i want to smell like the beach ill spray on BB's Beach and wear coppertone all for under 70 $ . ..its really nicer than beach in the respect that its a richer full bodied fragrance ..deeper..but were STILL talking the beach here..i dont know im from miami beach i was born here...and we cant wait to get home and get that smell off of us ..at least the locals are that way..fire island has zero longevity ..all in all dissappointing..im sticking to my L'heure Bleu ..what a difference ..not only on a different page its a different book..
