    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.
