    Default Bond 09 Andy Warhol: Union Square. Brief review.

    A bright chypre with its Lily of the Valley note amplified through a 10,000 watt Marshall amp.

    I don't think I like most lilly of the valley prominent scents. Most of them remind me of the smell of cold cream, for some reason.

    I had inferred from a blog review, about Union Square, that it was 'feminine' smelling.

    I got to try it actually 3 days ago....WAY too feminine for any man to wear.
    It DOES smell nice, for a woman.
    I concur on the cold cream thing....Kinda odd but true.

    I will have to look through my samples to see if I have it.

    I just received a sample in the mail a few days ago...
    It is very feminine.
    Weird.... it reminds me of Liz (Claiborne womens)....that used to come in the red, blue and yellow triangular plastic covered bottles I used to see on my mom's vanity back in the day.

    Wow...I remember what Liz Claiborne smells like too (my mom had it on her vanity too - what a coincidence...!)



    I remember it smelling bright, perhaps a little green and very feminine. A bright modern chypre - many think that Liz Claiborne smells like Lauren, the Ralph Lauren womens fragrance.

    I think it is the ylang ylang I mentioned, since LC has ylang ylang as an official note.

    Finally smelled this today. Very green/floral - has that generic, shampoo-scent vibe. Not offensive, the lily of the valley is not too 'cold creamy' but also I really don't want to smell like this.

    Have no absolute idea what this has to do with Andy Warhol.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"
