    Default Winter Bonding Selection

    I am currently in the market for a new Bond No. 9 fragrance. The 4 that I am narrowing it down to are New Haarlem, Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York, Chez Bond, and Park Avenue. I know that New Haarlem and Andy Warhol Success are typical winter scents, but what are your thoughts on Chez Bond and Park Avenue?

    I'm not keen on Park Avenue due to the vanilla and patchouli in it, which are two notes that I never care for in perfumes. It's also a light fresh floral, so living in Alaska I would imagine that you'd want something heavier for the Winter months.
    Chez Bond I've owned in the past and it's something you can use all year round. I liked the citrus, herbal tea and sandalwood notes in this, so I'd certainly consider it.
    My personal favourites are Eau de New York and Hamptons. Have you tried a sample of these you've narrowed down already? If not I'd do so rather than blind buy

    I'm all about New Haarlem.

    Chez Bond, to me, is boring. I haven't tried Park Avenue

    Well, I have sampled all 4 of them. I am in LOVE with all of them, but my favorites out of them are probably Success and Park Avenue with New Haarlem a close third. Chez Bond is just a very pleasant scent, which I am ironically wearing today and considering buying. I will end up buying them all, I just am curious if in the Alaskan Winter of super dry and cold if Park Avenue has a fighting chance. It may be light but the sillage is nothing to joke about.

    Out of those you listed, by far, I prefer Chez Bond. Another to check out is Bleeker St.

    In fairness, I can not remember what exactly I liked about them, so I couldn't comment on winter suitabliltiy. New Haarlem, on the other hand i can. I think it would fit well in the cold (as I think most gourmands do). My problem is, I think it is inferior to other, less expensive & similar type scents (Rochas Man, A-Men, even L'Instant)

    I own Bleeker Street, Silver Factory, and the limited edition Bond No. 9 Vegas. I wore my sample of Chez Bond today, and I think that it might be a little light for Winter. Park Avenue seemed to do better in the weather, and it isn't even snowing yet. I think I will wait on Chez Bond until the summer roles around. It seems like it's a better spring/summer fragrance. I would buy all of them now, but the prices are a little steep for a 4 fragrance buy. Maybe 2? I do know that Bond no. 9 will be having a "Buy 2, Get 1 Refill Free" event in November, so hopefully one of the refills will be one of the 3 I want, or even Chez Bond.
