New Haarlem regardless of the season.
Hmm. I've only tried Wall street out of those, which I found to be just mediocre. I'm not a big Bond fan, but I will give credit where it's due, every Bond frag I've tried except for one of the Andy Warhol's, has lasted at least 10 hours on my skin, some have lasted over 24 hours.. So I do believe if you like it enough, you're getting your moneys worth, because they have a certain richness to them all that exemplifies perfume strength.
They all last forever except Saks for him, unfortunately. I recommend New Haarlem, Great Jones, Chez Bond, Riverside Drive and Nouveau Bowery.
I pick New Haarlem by a mile....
Riverside Drive smells like Chanel Platinum Egoiste, but not even as good as Platinum Egoiste.
My Top 10
1. Amouage Homage Attar
2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
3. YSL M7
4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
5. Chanel Egoiste
6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
7. Amouage Epic Man
8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
10. Serge Lutens - Chergui
"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
For the summer, I would pick Andy Warhol Success. Wallstreet or Brooklyn are good summer scents also.
New Haarlem is the best Bond, but Fall/Winter scent.
One, because it's Bond's best and an absolutely glorious scent. Two, if you check the discount sites, it's typically priced a few dollars lower than the other quality Bond's out there. Three, you can buy a quality summer (fresh, citrus) scent at about a quarter of the price of Wallstreet, Chez Bond, or Chinatown.
Summer Top 5:
1) Creed Aventus
2) A*Men Pure Havane
3) Dior Homme Sport
4) YSL L'Homme
5) Clinique Happy for Men
Riverside Drive or Wall Street.....Saks Pour Homme lasts forever on my skin.....The only B9 that doesn't last all day on me is Montauk.....And it lasts a good 5-6 hours!!!
From your list : Riverside Drive (again) + add New Harlem absolutely.
Riverside Drive followed by New Haarlem
Do they still have the promo? If you buy two you get 1 free? Buy Wallsreet and Riverside Dr for 50 ml and get the New Haarlem 100ml tester for free.
Hmm . . . sounds like Riverside Drive and New Haarlem are very highly thought of by fans of Bond No. 9. (distant second place tie for Chez Bond and Wall St.!) I need to give these another test trial.
Definitely Riverside Drive, and it's my number one summer scent. Long lasting, has a lot of depth compared to "usual" summer scents, but doesn't get cloying or overpowering in warm weather. If anything, it blooms!
Riverside drive. Ive tried only one Bond in my life, New Harlem.
Nothing really wowed me other than Fire Island, very cool and unique. I will buy the bon bon set one of these days though - give them all a proper testing!
Hmm, not so sure I'd go for Chez Bond as a first, to me it's just a higher end suit frag. Very nice but there's better Bond's on offer.
