    Too bad Chez Bond lasts longer the GIT, which is why it gets my vote between the two. I have over 15+ samples of Bond no.9 and they do have some nice scents tbh same with Creed.

    LOL - Well, I do find that Wall Street certainly "borrows" from it many elements of the aquatic Creed Millesime structure. Chez Bond = GIT and Hamptons = SMW... roughly.. There's another Bond that has been accused of borrowing, in the same manner, Acqua di Parma Colonia, perhaps as Eau de New York? It's been so long since I've gone through the Bond lineup that I can't recall.

    But overall, Creed's offerings - many now sadly discontinued > anything Bond No. 9 has ever done. I still can't get over the fact Bond No. 9 is behind Harrods Oud. The gaudy Swarovski crystal encrusted bottle is a harsh reminder, though. Sorry, Bond lovers!

    The only one I've experienced is Hamptons being similar to SMW. I've not experienced Chez Bond - one of the few Bonds I haven't smelled - but no other Bond scent that I've smelled is particularly close to any Creed (and please please don't tell me that Wall Street is a rip-off of MI or I'll have to disregard the rest of your post. ).

    Strange. GIT lasts up to 12 hours on me, while Chez Bond generously sprayed on my wrist stayed on for about six hours on me.

    Wildly subjective and influenced by skin-type I guess.

    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie

    Here's what I've noticed from personal experience:
    Creeds are more preferable among those with, "educated" noses, if you will.
    I like doing samplings and I don't tell people anything about what I am wearing and just want honest opinions. So I'll spray Bond's Riverside Drive for example and ask opinions of my girlfriend, friends, co-workers etc., what first comes to mind. Pretty good comments all the way around.

    Then I'll spray a Creed, in this example it was MI. You want to know what I get? and this is being honest so don't get upset you connoisseurs "That smells cheap" , "You smell like an old man", "Yuck". Could be Creeds just don't work on my skin, but that's the feedback I got... no good! and actually quite disappointing! Was excited to wear this stuff!

    I honestly believe that regular, every-day people like myself just don't appreciate frags like Creed as much as they are appreciated among scent-heads. I guess I'm just not educated enough to truly grasp what some Creeds have to offer. Therein lies my answer though. Do I want to smell nice for myself and most people I'm around? or wear something I don't like in hopes of impressing one of the few who notice?

    Just my experience.

    I recently tested Chez Bond. It's nice, but I much prefer GIT. I have still yet to be blown away by a Bond scent.

    Gave Chez Bond a full wearing recently. GIT is much better by far. Chez starts off very similar to GIT, but after the first half hour, it dries to down to more sweeter notes & loses it's green vibe very quickly.

    GIT, on the other hand, stays fresh & green throughout. To me, GIT also feels more natural and the sweet notes in Chez feel a bit synthetic.

    now that ive tried both houses, i say creed is much better. bond only has 2-3 fragrances that i saw as more than "just good". and i wouldnt pay retail price for either of them.

    I like 2 fragrances from Bond, thats it. Creed fragrances have a better composition and their drydowns dont suffer from a synthetic plastic feel which many Bonds do and what many prominent reviewers on Fragrantica have noticed. At first I thought it was just my nose but nope, other seasoned reviewers felt that same. In short, Creed >>>> >>>>>>>>>>>Bond
