    Hmm, hard one. For me, it's a toss up between 3 (Chez Bond, Andy Warhol Montauk, and High Line).

    New York Oud is the first I bought and I love it; it just won a FIFI award for Perfume Extraordinaire of the Year 2011. But I love New Haarlem and Harrod's Oud too.

    The thread says, which would be your bond perfume , if you could only buy one - it doesnt say if you could live with/or without bond - but i guess everyone's welcome to flood the thread.

    Harrod's Oud is very "oudy" and woody, a bit peppery and dark, dry. New York Oud has rose, saffron and plum with some patchouli, citrus and musk and a bit of amber. The two are very different!

    I haven't tried all of the hundreds of them yet, but of those I have, I would say Chez Bond, that is, if you don't already own GIT.

    New Haarlem I just do not like one bit. Such a heavy maple syrup experience is what my nose gets from it. I only own Brooklyn and have kept it. The only other bottles I'd consider:

    New York Oud
    Bleecker Street
    Andy Warhol Silver Factory
    Current obsession...Invasion Barbare

    New Haarlem is definitely blind buy worthy. If you enjoy very sweet scents, NH is very good. It is my favorite Bond No. 9 fragrance, even though I only own I <3 New York for All.

    From my somewhat limited experience, New Haarlem (I currently own 3 Bonds, and plan to explore the line further soon).

    Chinatown,or maybe Bryant Park. But I am going on descriptions only, as I have never even seen a bottle of Bond No.9 perfume yet.

    I own both New Haarlem and Bulgari black and New Haarlem doesn't smell like Black in my opinion.

    Also, New Haarlem is the only bottle I own from Bond No.9, and would love to give Riverside Drive a try or Coney Island.

    Harrod's Oud. I recently had a 10ml decant I went through in a week. I like this one. Otherwise not a fan of the house in general.

    New Haarlem smells just like Rochas Man. Only difference is New Haarlem is thicker and has monster projection and longevity Rochas Man is 6 times cheaper tho.

    To answer the question the 2 Bonds I like the most are Brooklyn and Bleecker which I already own so to me these were must haves.

    My next will be probably be I <3 NY for All for fall and winter.

    I <3 NY for All>>>>>New Haarlem.

    At least to me.

    Between New Haarlem(Fall/Winter) or Bleecker Street(Spring/Summe).

    If I had to pick only one then it would be New Haarlem I LOVE IT. However I can't see myself wearing it every day.

    Default Re: If you could only own 1 Bottle from BOND No.9 Which one would it be?

    I only like two of the ones I have sampled and they are New Haarlem and Silver factory. I have a sample of Silver Factory and I own a bottle of New Haarlem.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Epic Man
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Noir de Noir
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Musc Ravageur

    Harrod's Oud, but I would be happy with Bleeker Street.

  42. #42

    Default Re: If you could only own 1 Bottle from BOND No.9 Which one would it be?

    Boy that's tough, they have quite a few good ones. Silver Factory is my favorite of the line, but it isn't the most versatile (too strong in the heat for me!). So I would probably go with Riverside Drive.
    Current top 10:

    1. L'Artisan Dzing!
    2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
    3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
    4. L'Artisan Al Oudh
    5. Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory
    6. Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond
    7. Andy Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain
    8. Guerlain Derby
    9. Geo F Trumper Eucris
    10. Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe

    I have only tried 7 or 8 of them but Bleeker Street would be my choice. There's a corn pops note in it that is really satisfying (not joking).

    None really stand out enough. I own Bleecker, Riverside and Hamptons. Oddly enough, if I could only have one, I'd pick Central Park, which I don't even own! It's the most distinct to me of the line.
