    Default Is this fragrance used by any of you Ladies?

    NEW YORK by Parfums de Nicolai


    Sorry for the 'shouting' but I just tried a sample spray of that frag and it's very nice. I think it's more 'feminine' than 'masculine' although it's listed as for men.

    I'm thinking about getting this for my female sales assistant. She wear's YSL's Opium much of the time.

    What do y'all think about it?

    I like it a lot, but have only a decant, so wear it rarely. Spicy and elegant, very confident scent.

    Thanks for the replies. I just sprayed one spray on the back of my hand yesterday morning and was entranced by it all day . Very long-lasting and with lots of sillage.

    Trax, I didn't get a BdP connection? To my nose it had a rose scent although rose is not mentioned in its description.

    Found some on ebay for just $30.

    I've worn it Dan, and promptly put it on my wish-list. If she is a fan of Opium, she will probably like New York a lot. Tigs has it nailed exactly.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Rose? are you sure it's New York? cause I'm with thrax, it's drydown can be compared to that of Bois du Port ( not really the same , but still..). It's very much a "Guerlain Heritage " type of scent to me. Mature,woody, spicy oriental.
    And to me it's more masculine by the way.

    Eric: My sample atomizer was given to me by a trust-worthy BN'r so unless he mis-labled it, it's genuine. I certainly could be wrong about the rose scent. My biggest weakness scent-wise is identifying them .

    Because of y'all's descriptions, I do believe I will get one or two bottles; one for a gift and one for me .

    Dan, I have to swallow my words.
    I just spritzed some on and I think I know what you mean. The initial impression of the fresh topnotes, could make one think of fresh,flowers. And I can also imagine this on a woman now.

    Weird,.....I hope it's not a hormonal thing....

    I definately have to do something manly now!!

    Ladies, I'm outa here!!

    Am awaiting a decant and will be glad to report - even though it sounds like you've already made up your mind! :bounce:

    It's alright I guess.That bottle on e-bay is the old bottle. Since 2004 or 2005 it's the one that's on the Nicolai website now.
