    Default Bond No.9 Coney Island vs Bond No.9 Hamptons

    Dear Friends,
    I had the joy of being over-sprayed by Coney Island (this is just jaw dropping past the 10 mins or so of utter madness rotten-egg like opening) - I just feel elated with this fragrance!

    The Salesperson also sprayed, Hamptons on my Left Arm - doesn't last as long as Coney Island, but smells so refined!!

    I'd like to have them both - but can only own one, i also hear Creed's Silver Mountain
    Water is similar to The Hamptons.

    I may go for the Silver Mountain Water at a later stage, all based on your comments.

    I have no way of sampling Creed here in Malaysia, as it is being discontinued.

    Personally, I like Coney Island but don't care for Hamptons or Silver Mtn Water. But that's just me. I will tell you that if you like that sharp/sour piercing metallic top note, then you'll probably like SMW. Its this "vinegary" note that I dislike in both, and it's way more pronounced in SMW.

    Coney Island is more interesting to me. Silver Mountain Water is a classic though, so I have no need for Hamptons if it's in any way similar.

    I bought Hamptons after spraying a sample on my arm. Maybe it's the fact that I had some many other areas that had sample sprays of other flavors, that I thought I liked it. When I tried my brand new bottle, after several hours, I hated it. Thankfully, Saks had no problem with the return. Picked up Tom Ford TV for a couple bucks more as my replacement.

    Without a doubt, Coney Island.

    My personal ranking would be SMW first, followed by Coney Island, with Hamptons a distant third (don't like Hamptons at all). Coney is starting to grow on me, though.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Coney Island, then Coney Island, and then lastly Coney Island. I don't care for the other two at all.

    I've just bought Coney Island so my vote goes there (also haven't tried Hamptons!)

    Hamptons by Bond No. 9 is a crisp and clean scent that just cuts through humidity. It has a whisper of inkiness that I find refreshing. I own, and enjoy it.
