    Default Bond no. 9: new harlem or i love ny for all?

    hesitating between the two... which do you recommend and why?

    Default Re: Bond no. 9: new harlem or i love ny for all?

    I've sampled both and I would go with New Haarlem. That's only if I was forced to pick between the two. I'm not sure if either is bottle worthy for me.

    New Haarlem is basically just maple syrup. I don't get any other notes from it.

    ILNY4All smells like Coco Puffs cereal with milk. There's a strong milk note that many are not fond of.

    They're both good, but if I had to choose it would be NY.

    I like NY For All....but it doesn't come close to New Haarlem IMO. New Haarlem is great stuff.

    Default Re: Bond no. 9: new harlem or i love ny for all?

    I owned both.

    ILNY For All is unique, and it smelled good on my wrist, but actually wearing it all day was abolutely disgusting. Cloying. smells like fake butter caramel beverage flavoring. I sold it asap.

    New Haarlem on the other hand, is a beauty. Highly complimented, tons of projection and longevity, and sweet, but just transparent enough to be highly wearable. Don't hesitate, NH by a country mile.

    Default Re: Bond no. 9: new harlem or i love ny for all?

    Own and love both. For caramelized coffee go for NH. For cocoa + vanilla + marron glace go for ILNYFALL. I think NH lasts more while ILNY projects better.

    New Haarlem is one of the best gourmands out there, so I'd go with that one.

    New Haarlem easily for me. NY is like hot chocolate or coffee where someone dumped in far too much cream.

    I thought I liked them both, but New Haarlem is much better. I have a hard time with the opening ofI Love NY for all...it has a smell of milk that is about to go very sour but is not quite there yet. After that wears off it becomes OK, but the opening is challenging, not in a good way for me.

    I sprayed some Andy Warholl Success is a job in New York last evening after shower to go out and believe me: besides very nice smell it´s alive as we speak (not just a trace, I mean I can take sniffs of it here sitting as I type). Very incensy and vanilla. But it´s unisex I think. Not a real Macho Man smell. I like all Bonds I know. And I own maybe 8 ou 10 of them.

    From the 2 that you have been considering, I would go with I Love NY for All. I just don't like New Haarlem very much.

    However, if you want to sample others from the line, you could try:
    Andy Warhol Silver Factory
    Saks New Orleans (black bottle)
    Great Jones
    New York Oud
    Harrods Oud
    Saks 5th Avenue for Him

    Maybe not 'traditionally' masculine, but great nonetheless:
    West Side
    Chinatown
    Nuits de Noho

    New Haarlem is much much sweeter. That maple is just overwhelmingly sugary; I can't do it. I Love Ny for All is my bedtime scent, it's comforting and warm without being too sweet.

    Isnt New Haarlem cheaper than I love NY for all? I have a sample of I love Ny for all and really enjoy it and was thinking about purchasing it, havent tried new haarlem yet so might have to sample it first and make a decision, since i love gourmands.

    I like new haarlem enough on my 5'7 150 lb frame to keep it. It lasts forever. Smelled a lot of Bonds and only cared to know the name of a few including Coney Island and Brooklyn

    I know what you mean Vince23Heat...it smells exceptional on my 6' 170 lb frame. I sure am glad that I'm not really tall, say 6'5" and super muscly..because if I were, somehow New Haarlem would probably smell awful!! Ok, ok, I'll stop...if anyone's confused, just search New Haarlem and you'll understand!

    Just wanted to put this out there...though I absolutely despise I Love NY for All, I was pleasantly surprised by So New York, which I feel has a similar vibe to ILNY4A. I still probably wouldn't purchase it, and New Haarlem is still better in my mind, but as another Bond gourmand, So New York should be given a chance.

    I own and like both.

    New Haarlem is a better fragrance for me but NY For All wins when it comes to versatility. So if you're looking to expand your collection, NH is a better addition. But if you're willing to use it daily, i'd recommend NY for All.

    This.

    I own New Haarlem, and it does get a lot of compliments (even though it does smell like pancakes and syrup, the compliments aren't from fat chicks). But you need to decide which one you like better...
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. Xerjoff - Fars
    5. Dior - Vetiver
    6. Creed - Green Valley
    7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Creed - Royal Scottish Lavender
