I absolutely LOVE The Hamptons by Bond no. 9. I'm just like you, the crispness and dryness of it is what appeals to me the most. If it were not for the ridiculous pricetag of The Hamptons, i would have owned it LONG ago. Additionally, if it were not for the ridiculous pricetag of ALL the Bonds, i would have owned mose of them long ago.....and to this day also.
