    New Haarlem
    Silver Factory
    Bleecker Street
    Riverside Drive

    I'd put Nouveau Bowery and Fire Island up there but they're more unisex

    Being the Big Bond Fan that I am this is a very difficult question.....Riverside Drive, Chez Bond and Wall Street are very good in my opinion.....My Wife really Loves when I wear Central Park.....I must also add that Bleecker Street is very nice also!!! I myself also like Eau de New York and the Signature Perfume.....I sampled Coney Island at Saks the other day and fell in love.....As I stated.....I am a huge Bond Fan!!!

    Silver Factory. It's one of the only Bond no. 9 fragrances that is worth the price, IMO. Quality of materials, blending, longevity, uniqueness... It's all there. It's also one of my favorite incense fragrances. I actually like it more than Jubilation and Avignon - it never gets too musky or musty, and it smells modern and sexy. To me, Silver Factory smells like earthy patchouli, frankincense and sandalwood with a vanilla and leather base. The most interesting part is the metallic accord running through it all.

    +1 to this, though I'm not overly impressed with Chez, I think there are good substitutions for much less and it's nothing really new. The other two are very good.
    I still think Riverside smells similar to Joop! Homme (pineapple and herbs).

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Saks Fifth for him has an awesome incense drydown, and it never fails to get me compliments.

    With all do respect to other Bonds already mentioned (and the mentioning members), I am surprised no one has given a shout out to Saks for him or Brooklyn. Are they not well-received, or maybe they aren't sampled too often? I like some of the others mentioned, just surprised Brooklyn and Saks haven't been mentioned at all. I have most of them and feel these are more of the better Masc ones in the Bond lineup.

    Edit: My boy ADB from the Left Coast was touting Saks as I wrote this.......

    Saks for Him - my only nitpick is that it turns sour on me as it starts to fade
    Riverside Drive - a favorite, but mainly for summer
    Bleecker St - smells a bit feminine to me for the first half hour, but gets much better
    Brooklyn - I agree with Brrry in that it's an excellent masculine Bond, but longevity is an issue for me.

    New Haarlem is the only one I'd consider buying....

    Wall Street is pretty good.
    H.O.T. Always is interesting

    The rest are 'meh'

    Personally, I don't understand the love for New Haarlem. There are much better interpretations of the theme out there, many are much much cheaper.

    Definitely Riverside Drive.

    I also really like Hamptons but I just wish it had more oomph to it.

    Great Jones is also very good.
