Thread: PdN New York

    Default PdN New York

    As highly regarded as PdN New York is, it doesn't get much mention here. Too passe perhaps?

    Anyway, I've got a sample of this and want your opinions. This seems just a bit "perfumey" to me. Do you find this makes a good office scent? I don't mind the powderiness of this one, but do you wear this to the office.

    I appreciate any comments on this fragrance.

    I think it gets mentioned a good amount here, usually in comparison to Creed's BdP.

    I just got a sample and I have not assessed it yet.

    It is elegant and mature, "professional" if you wish. I would love to have people at the office smelling like New York.
    I had a bottle but it was very similar to BdP so I could not justify having both and I much prefer BdP.
    The only problem of wearing it at the office is that everyone will think you are the Boss... then the boss will get jealous. :-)

    I agree, New York seems to come up in conversation quite frequently.

    In addition to Bois du Portugal, I have always compared it to Heritage as well.

    I have Heritage and New York and whilst I can see the similarities, they really are quite distinct in their drydowns and markedly different to the drydown of Bois de Portugal, which I don't really like.

    I've actually never seen it compared to BdP (of course, I sometimes go days without checking BN (usually by accident)). I found it because it was compared to the reformulated (current version) Derby (Guerlain). I think actually it lives right in between the two. One of my favorite scents; Luca Turin (no LT flamewar, pls!) says of it in "The Guide" that it's likely the one he'd save if the house were to burn down.

    A great fragrance. It goes phases where it gets lots of love and then it gets forgotten. There is no question it smells fantastic - almost too good. Good office scent.

    Color me not impressed. Overall I like the base but a little powdery. I didn't not like everything up until the base or middle. Here was my review of a sample

    New York--After all the reviews I was excited. I really have enjoyed this one but am completely confused. the intitial burst was "dirty citrus" and something that wasn't bad but that I wasn't sure I'd enjoy. However about 30 minutes to an hour later, to my surprise the drydown was great. Woodsy and powdery...light compared to the beginning. A real change. Again, I enjoyed this alot. But this might be an "older" scent if you ask me

    NEW YORK changes during the day...it is a pleasure for the one who is wearing it and for the ones around. It is one of my must have...
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    It'a a great fragrance and perfect for office or anytime. I don't get the BdP reference as much and see it in the same family as Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree and Tiffany for Men. All share similar qualities but, for me, different enough to own.

    Superb frag but not a masterpiece. What do you mean by "perfumey"? Sillage and longevity are excellent if that's what you mean.

    i totally agree with this SPANISH guy here

    NEW YORK is a great professional scent. it does feel mature and very calm.

    It has a very "insistent" sillage. The sillage doesn't come and go, it's consistent; almost cloying. This is very much the way I sense many women's frags. It makes the frag a bit more feminine than I like.

    NY has a sublime drydown very Guerlain like. Infact when i first sampled NY it reminded me of Habit Rouge without the harsh orange note.

    If you want a "modern" version of it, try Rouge Royal for men.
