    Glad you found it to your liking. I wish I could say the same for my experience trying this.

    I agree that this is a special fragrance for bond. Where I am undecided is in the drydown. It turns a bit fem and the only thing stopping me is when I ask myself if I would wear a full bottle. When you have so much fragrance, you have to be selective and buy what you will actually reach for regularly. I haven't crossed it out yet but I am indecisive about this one.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I like this one quite a bit, but haven't yet committed to a purchase. With so many bottles of stuff already on hand, I'm trying to avoid buying any further full bottles unless it is something I absolutely adore and would wear frequently. This is definitely one I have had my eye on recently, however.

    Why is this so expensive on top of their already high prices?

    Wore this today. Very nice and spicy, but not FBW. When it dries down it smells like Polo Explorer with a little vanilla tossed in.

    So...many...ellipses!

    I like it a lot, too, but apparently because they claim that there's oud somewhere underneath all the visible notes, it deserves another 100 or so dollars. I've never smelled the faintest hint of oud and I'm fairly certain the concoction wouldn't change if it were removed, but god forbid that price tag lower at all.

    Yeah, this one is just too much for what it offers. If I ever see it at the online discounters, however, I will probably get it.

    New York Amber is considered a full strength perfume concentration - 30%, not an EDP like the rest of their line. It's not a bad fragrance, but I preferred Killians Amber Oud. You may want to try the New York Oud next time you test some Bond's.

    It's a shame you didnt get to sample it three weeks ago. The Bond Boutiques had this one available for their refill event as a free3.4 oz bottle.

    I really like it as well. It does seem a little feminine but, whenever I have a full wearing it doesn't seem all that feminine and dries down very nice. Lasts FOREVER!
