    Red face I love ny for all by bond no. 9

    New and contemporary from the house of bond no 9 in NYC...

    I have just received the sample from Harrods London and have worn it all day long...

    Gorgeous and unique juice based around strong coffee, cocoa, leather, pepper, patchouli and vanilla notes...I can detect a very sensual gasolin/petrol note which is certainly very much of an 80`s accord...think garage/motorbikes/hot steamy attraction...I truly love this in a modern scent...there is a masculine/androgynous/vampish flair in this Bond...is this why the scent is in a Black bottle?...I wonder...

    Excellent longevity and sillage...

    Big thumbs up...!!!

    Yeah - I sniffed all three in a magazine, and they all smelled great. For All - just like everybody says, a great gourmand (like they got wise to the popularity of New Haarlem and decided to improve it). For Him seemed offbeat and interesting. A bit mainstream, but still gourmand and very distinctive. And For Her - floral gourmand - very nice, and maybe the nicest of the three, which I didn't expect. I'll be getting one of these for sure - there's no way around it.

    I also tried For Her yesterday evening while dining out...and Yes, For Her is a sweet and fruity gourmand full of blueberries, muffins and vanilla...very full bodied and long lasting...

    For him is lovely. I've worn it all week and really starting to like it more and more. For all is IMHO is the step-child of New Harleem. Same family but different genes. I really like that one. For her, my GF didn't like it because she said it was too "cakey" and seemed like a scent for the younger generation. Mind you, my GF is 34. I really liked for her. It smelt like a bakery and when she wore it I just wanted to eat her up.

    Added to that, the I LOVE NY Collection is tremendously cheaper than the other Bonds. Small bottle is $105.

    The For All is a very good scent. I was not impressed with For Her (berry Suave shampoo) or For Him (Bleu de Chanel).

    For Him really grew on me. I was so taken by For All that I didn't pay much attention to For Him. Then a few days later, it clicked. I think it's a great introductory Bond No 9 for men. A perfect start to a new, more mainstream, sub-line of scents. It seems to have captured the soul of the Bond men's offerings. A masculine Bond-ness, if you will. It's achieved exactly what it was intended for.

    More on topic -- For All. LOVE this one! I get more cocoa then anything else. Very milky and warm. Thank goodness I don't perceive the gasoline or that rubbery condom note!

    Can you see any similarities between For Him and Cooper Square? Thanks

    Tried this today and as much as I love coffee, chocolate and black rubber - this is just so dense that I am not sure of my thoughts on it. It doesn't breathe and shift. It's a lot like the edp version of Hanae Mori in that respect. I love the edt Hanea Mori but the edp is just to dense and doesn't bloom.

    Hi Neal,

    I would give it a few more wearings...you will see how incredibly masculine and powerful this juice is...

    Oh, it's masculine and powerful, I do like it. It's just that it is so heavy and dense. The notes don't move much. There's no intermingling of the notes. It's such a wall.

    Tried this at Nordstrom today. I'm surprised to read so many picked up on a gasoline note, I can't really detect that at all. It smells 100% gourmand to me. Though I like it very much, it pains me to say I almost get a little fragrance-head-achy from wiffing it. It's all coffee and cocoa and vanilla to me and it's FANTASTIC, but just a little too dense, makes my head swim.

    I'd LOVE this as a candle.
