    I personally feel that it's shoddy to sell "free" samples, whether you are an employee or a customer. It's just greedy (and problematic in other ways if you're an employee). Otoh, I think that you should be able to sell samples if you have them, without being hounded by big companies.

    (Vintage samples and minis are fine to buy and sell IMO, they're off the mainstream market anyway and have become collectibles.)

    Unalienable Property Rights

    When a trade is made for something both parties agree upon as fair, usually money or another item (barter), then those items become under the buyer's control -- their property. The buyer "gave up" their money in exchange for the good. The seller gained the buyer's money in this implied contractual agreement and "gave up" their right to their product/property. The rights of the perfumer over their product end when they accept the money from the buyer.

    Bullying a decanter; telling them what to do with THE DECANTER'S property is just as horrible and ridiculous as the decanter telling the perfumer what to do with THE PERFUMER'S money!

    STOP THE INSANITY! Support absolute property rights, absolutely!

    Well, now I understand why their decants are not more available at theperfumedcourt or some other online stores. What a pity and shame for Bond no. 9. And I am starting to hate Bond no. 9. Not only that, I will never purchase anything from Bond no. 9.

    Thank you, Bond no. 9 for saving my money on your products and spending on some other and better niche fragrances.

    Sincerely,
    Sorella

    P.S. I bought a bottle of Chinatown because I sampled it at theperfumedcourt, and I couldn't buy a sample at Bond's online store (I tried, but they didn't allow me). So, I am not so foolish to spend $150 on a bottle I didn't try.

    I am new to the site, and only joined because I saw this thread yesterday. I am happy to have found this site, as I am alone in my group of friends and my love of smelly stuff.

    Anyways, I had watched some youtube video reviews on some of the Bond No.9 Fragrances. I was/am thinking about buying a couple of bottles. Naturally, I saw the news of the twitter incident and went directly to the PC website to see if I could buy a small 2.5/5 ml spray sample.

    Obviously, I could not. In turn, I went to bonds website and am also unable to purchase samples there. As so many people have stated, who would buy such expensive fragrances, with such little market share, and mixed reviews at such a high price without some sort of sampling opportunity? Given there is a Saks about 10 minutes from my house, but Id rather pay for 2-3 samples online than be pressure sold at the counter- and well, I guess i'm pretty lazy too.

    I have never worn a bond frag, however I have watched and read lots of user reviews. I find it somewhat ironic that so many people have mentioned bond frags as being creed rip offs. If this is true.......Bond is essentially stealing creeds ideas, then threatening any companies that try's to resell their product, which was "stolen" to begin with. I got a chuckle from that.

    I find the whole thing a bit sophomoric. If I could have gotten the samples, and subsequently enjoyed them, I would have purchased at least 2 bottles. Instead, I read into bonds shennigans as having a complete lack of faith in their products to not openly offer samples to an internet based consumer to begin with. Are they relying on blind buys? Maybe its crap, i don't know.

    If someone from bond ever reads this think about the math.

    I Buy:

    1 - 5ml sample of Fire Island from PC
    1 - 5ml sample of bleaker from PC

    assuming i like the samples....

    I buy
    1 - 100 ml bottle of fire island
    1 - 100 ml bottle of bleaker

    That means you would have had to sell 4 bottles in some way shape or form vs 2. (Given the ones from PC are partial). Who cares they are making money off your product. Listen to your audience, obviously consumers are willing to pay for smaller quantities. Scale down the quantity, and nix the fancy foil to make an extra buck.

    I'm not a lawyer. But I really can't understand the legal situation here. If I sell my car, can I list it in the paper as a Mercedes Benz without Mercedes suing me? If I'm wearing a Bond No. 9 scent (which I never have), am I allowed to answer the question, "What is that scent you're wearing?" without getting sued?

    TPC buys a bottle of perfume from an authorized channel; they are now the owner of that bottle and its contents. (Bond No. 9 is not, as I understand it, accusing TPC of trafficking in either counterfeit or stolen goods.) TPC now wants to exercise its legal right as the owner of this piece of property to resell it. They make no secret about the fact that they are not an authorized retailer. They're really not trying to -- or actually -- competing with Bond No. 9's authorized retailers. I can not understand how this is a trademark infringement.

    As I (not a lawyer) understand it, a copyright infringement has to create confusion in the market. If I was to start a new perfume company and call it Bond Nr. 9, that would create confusion in the market and so that would be a trademark infringement. On the other hand, if I decided to start a real estate agency and call it Bond Number Nine Realty of Portland, Oregon, that would not be confusion in the market because while the names are remarkably similar, we would be in different markets and the words Nine, Bond, and Number are all common English words. (If I tried to name my hypothetical real estate agency called Xerox Realty, that would be a problem because Xerox is a made-up, non-sense word and, therefore, they have much broader protection. Consider, for example, the fact that there are some 1300 businesses in America with exactly or closely the name Yellow Cab Company; the name has become so prolific that it can be trademarked only within a very-well-geographically-defined market.) TPC and Bond No. 9 are in the same market, yes. But TPC creates no confusion in the market at all. In fact, they go out of their way to clarify the exact nature of their operation.

    I just don't understand it.

    And I will never, ever, EVER buy Bond No. 9 for this reason. (After all, can you see Guerlain going after PC, or Caron? They are proud of the product, and if someone wants to buy a sample, it only helps their business. Buy a PC sample of Derby? Result: spend $230 dollars on a bottle.)

    You may be turned around, but I am not. Bond even went after a small, private artisanal perfume maker or using the name "peace" or something similar. It was preposterous.

    Can the estate of Ian Fleming sue for using the name "Bond," on the the novelist's characters.

    Any company will give you lots of samples WITH purchase. Even Sephora will send you out the door with a purchase with a handful. Guerlain will even comp good customers with discounts, minis and even free bottles of scent (of lesser price, of course) with a fine scent luxury purchase.

    What we are talking about here is Bond No. 9 going after PC for selling samples.

    Again, do we see the likes of Guerlain or Caron going after PC for selling samples? They are too big to really care, and they realise a PC sale might end up with a full bottle purchase.

    I agree and I do not like Bond's practices at all. It's a shame I LOVE their oud scent, Harrods Ltd Edition, so much because I don't want to support a company that partakes in such practices. That one scent, however, is truly amazing and competes with the best of SL, Amouage, etc. and this is one time where I'm having a hard time acting on principle rather than desire. Well, actually, I guess I'm not acting at all at the moment as I surely don't have the $330 to plunk down on the scent.. but if I did..

    Thanks for reviving this thread and for reminding everyone. After what happened with TPC and other independant perfumers a few months ago (threats because they used one of the same words in a title--not even the same title--which led to the discontinuation of the scent!), I made a decision to stay away from their products (and related threads on Basenotes).
    Just recently, I got a little worried since a "venerable" member started reviewing and telling others how great H.O.T. Always is. Everyone got soooo excited on that thread.
    I know it comes down to each individual and his/her own personal choices. This is how I feel. I don't wish to support them.

    See that's the bizarre thing. If you go to a Saks they practically throw those bon bon samples at you, like they're garbage or something. It just goes to show, that they have a very poor business model in place. As a future accountant, I must agree with the idea brought up by SmellyDude. Ditch the fancy foil wrapping, make those 2-3ml samples smaller and add a spray attachment. Then offer an easy and affordable option for consumers to purchase samples. The math above makes a lot of sense, and I believe was brought up earlier in this thread, but it does seem quite odd at Bond's apprehension towards a small company like TPC selling their frags. Those bottles are being bought at full retail price and if anything are leading to at least a small percentage of samples turning into full bottles. It feels very immature, brutish, and makes little if any real financial sense.

    Good point. It's not as if these are travel sized (like those little bottles of mouth wash or deodorant) items, that specifically state not for resale on the packaging. I, too, am not a lawyer, but what legal right does Bond maintain over their goods which have now had a transfer of ownership?

    True, there is something to be said for maintaining a level of exclusivity, but something needs to budge. There is a fine line between alienating and upsetting potential clientele and upholding an image of luxury. IMO, Bond is not toeing that line very well.

    I was never impressed with this house. Generally too pricey and, unless I have been totally out of it, they offer nothing so unique or outstanding that hasn't been done before, in form, and economically at that.

    Who's got money to pay a lawyer for a long protracted battle? Hell, even if it's short it'll still prove costly. Why bother? I certainly don't want to see my decants of vintage Derby or wutnot go up because TPC decides to fight THIS.

    Perhaps TPC should market what it has left from this house as 'Dr. NO' and come up with quirky names such as 'C.O.L.D. never'. It would be a little game for those of us here, in the know and haven't declared a boycott, to speculate as to the match ups.

    Bond needs TPC much more than TPC needs Bond, but is simply too ignorant to see it that way. So be it.

    Apparently Bond is trying with the one hand to increase market share and simultaneously trying to decrease it with the other.

    A strange and somwhat schizophrenic dichotomy at best.

    This whole issue brings to mind a much broader issue :
    FREE SAMPLES. All of these companies used to be much more liberal when it came to offering the 2ml free samples. Here in europe that has more or less stopped. Now you are only given a few 2ml samples if you buy something substantial. If you just ask for a sample to try out a fragrance, the assistants say they dont have any. If you buy something, they suddenly become available ! It used to be that when you bought something you would be given a small 5ml miniature bottle of another fragrance to try. Now these miniatures cost a small fortune, (in europe between 5 -14).
    It would be a good experiment for basenoters to bombard Bond with emails and telephone calls asking them to send free samples, seeing how it it may no longer be possible to buy samples from TPC.- it would be very interesting to see how they react !!!

    Not only are they mediocre - they are often rip-offs of other fragrances.....very expensive rip-offs.

    A strange and somwhat schizophrenic dichotomy at best.

    Ok so Silver Factory is one Bond No 9 that I like and find unique. I would have bought a full bottle but I tried it from an unauthorized sample. Bond No 9 won't allow unauthorized samples or decants so I'll have to pretend like I never tried it
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!
