    Default Unexpected compliments - Bond New York Oud

    Some colognes, you get because they please you and you don't expect people to really say they like it, or that they don't like it. I was sitting in a group of people and next to two ladies, about 40 and 48ish each, and they each asked me what I had on. I know my wife liked it but did not expect others to really comment. And then, separately, two guys asked me what I was wearing. Now, in saying New York Oud, I had to spell it and explain what it was, and told them where to get it and I can just see their faces when they figure out the cost.

    I have had much the same experience with NY Oud. Great silage and when I go out I always get a complement. Bummer is, the last time I went out I smelled this on someone else. Oh, well...so much for being unique. I don't think I will tell anyone what this is when I wear it anymore. ;-)

    It's my SOTD from a tester and I'm actually surprised that I'm liking it as much as I am. I'll be picking up a bottle in a minute.

    I received an unexpected compliment for this from an unexpected person: myself.

    After having it sprayed on, I was totally disgusted with the smell, but about 8 hours later it smelled heavenly and couldn't stop me complimenting myself.

    The rose overpowers any trace of oud for me from the start but it's a nice scent for those days I feel a need for something that doesn't play close to the skin and isn't as dark as my other scents.
