    OK - hmmm, lets see..... Yeah - it's similar to Bois du Portugal, so we can call it a shameless rip-off! Yeah! Of course, I have to admit, it's a bit more modern and younger, so it's not really all that much of a rip-off. In fact, one might accuse Bond of sneakily aiming at a place where Creed wasn't covering the market. GRRRRRR! Bond is trying to be original and cater to the perfumista market! They made something that BNers would like - all the young guys who like BdP but hesitate to buy it because it's just a bit too retro! How cunning and calculating! Don't buy this juice! You'll like it, and that's all part of Bond's evil plan!

    Hahahahaha! So how'd I do? Did I talk you out of it?

    I tried Cooper Square today. There was some note(s) in it that was just quite off-putting to me. A friend of mine said it reminded him of his old Uncle Felix - which apparently was not a positive comment.

    Cooper Square is definitely different from the usual Bond scent. I finally got around to trying it, but I'm still undecided. From a spray on the wrist, I got a bit of juniper (Brooklyn?) along with this huge synthetic mess. After it burned off a bit, I got a nice vetiver that reminded me of a darker and creamier, though less complex, version of Chanel Sycomore. I asked a female co-worker for her opinion and she was really wowed by it. I'll have to give it a couple wearings before I pass judgement.

    I smelled Cooper Square today also.

    It immediately comes out of the bottle smelling unlike anything I've ever smelled before...hard to describe: a sharp pepper vibe with a synthetic sheen to it; a fougere-like accord running through it; it smelled 'purple', if that makes sense.

    Mind you, this was from a strip, I didn't try it on skin.

    Mike, would you say that was the lavender?
    I wore this from a sample a couple of days ago (actually, I started a thread about Cooper Square, not having seen this one) and after a pleasant whoosh of juniper berries, the scent quikcly became dominated by a lavender-soap accord that pretty much stayed the rest of the course. Really didn't do anything for me. Clean, inoffensive but ultimately boring.

    I don't remember smelling lavender. But as I said, I didn't put this on my skin so maybe I missed that accord. Whatever the 'purple' smell was, it was very synthetic smelling. Not in an offensive way just very synthetic, almost industrious.

    Always interested in a new Bond. By now they have such a huge line I think there must be at leats one fragrance that is likeable for anyone, or that you don't actively hate. I have a few I hate, a few that leave me so so and a few I love.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    I have finally tried Cooper Square, the latest creation by Bond no 9 House...

    The bottle is beautiful...silver and glass meet in the Bond no 9 signature star shaped bottle...

    The juice is nice...it starts with some pretty juniper and lavender notes that take you quite quickly into some myhrr and possibly mint notes that settle down gently into a long lasting green accord of musk and vetiver...it did remind me of Boston Man by the Puig House in so many different ways...

    I have enjoyed Cooper Square but I was expecting something different possibly something more interesting...?

    Since I wrote my last review on Cooper Square, I have tried the jiuce a few more times...must admit it has now grown on me as a very long lasting refreshing masculine scent for day time; have also got a bottle which is beautiful...

    I have changed my mind and am giving Cooper Square a big thumbs up...!!!

    How about Washington Square? I was told this is unisex. High Line was is supposedly unisex, but I find it to be more feminine.

    I found Cooper Square to be the worst Bond I have tried thus far. I literally couldn't scrub hard enough.

    I absolutely love Cooper Sq. It's very fresh and clean smelling to me. Almost wish I got that as my refill bottle instead of Silver Factory. I want to get rid of it.

    Early impressions from testing on paper indicates that this smells like a modernized take on a 'shaving cream fougere' such as Aqua Velva Blue Ice, Brut, or Rive Gauche PH.

    Actually, I might best sum it up as L'Homme de Couer meets Rive Gauche PH (with some Sartorial thrown in the mix). Interesting, and I am really enjoying it, but that is also probably influenced by the fact that I am currently really looking for one of these modernized fougeres.

    I COMPLETELY agree. I found it disgusting and I don't find many fragrances to be something I need to scrub off and Cooper Square was one of them.

    Washington Square wasn't bad but, seemed mediocre and more on the feminine scale.
