I haven't tried the whole Bond Line, but I was generally unimpressed. I would never, ever pay 210$ for a fragrance that isn't top quality (ie. Bond), and like you say, Bond fragrances are mostly just nicely packaged, variations on fragrances that already exist.
I mean, the quality and construction are usually pretty good, but to pay 4 times the price for something that is only slightly better than the original is ridiculous. For example, New Haarlem, IMO is better than its sibling Rochas, although I wouldn't pay a 400% price mark-up simply for an "improvement." Funny how New Haarlem wasn't simply plagiarised, it was plagiarised by its own creator, Maurice Roucel!
So, in answer to your question, I'd rather own the originals (that were copied by Bond), both because of price issues and a matter of principle. Can't stand plagiarism, whether it be in fragrance, music, literature, etc.
