    Bond No. 9 Great Jones! I love the bergamot/cedarwood vibe it gives off; it's a wonderfully masculine scent from this unisex house, and perfect for summer or fall. But to be honest, I haven't gotten around to purchasing a bottle of it; my very first Bond was New Haarlem, so frequently mentioned. It's definitely a warm, winter fragrance, but I'll admit I was ribbed over this "vanilla cappuccino cologne." I still like it, but don't wear it often.

    I gotta change my response from over a year ago…while I still love New Haarlem, I gotta say if I could only own one bottle it would be Silver Factory---I love the stuff!! It's fantastic!!

    New York Oud would be my top choice but I like some of their other scents from the line. Scent of peace, Manhattan, Harrods for him and I love NY for all and I do like Wall street and don't see the comparison to Creed MI which I do like better.

    For me, it would be the bottle they haven't made yet, and it would consist of the following:

    2/3 NY Amber
    1/3 New Haarlem

    Bond is big on the idea of layering, and while it's easy to write that off as nothing more than a sales strategy, there's no denying that many Bonds use the same base - and I point this out as a positive rather than a negative. Some Bonds really do work marvelously together, and the pairing of NY Amber and New Haarlem is a perfect example.

    That being said, I have yet to find a Bond I would buy. I'm not slamming the house. I'm just a guy on a very limited budget who is a tough sell. I'm very tempted by Andy Warhol though (the one in the silver/purple bottle with his face on it). That's some really unique stuff.

    Interesting! I think Hot Always is fantastic. The patchouli is just a bit too dirty for my taste, but I love the Red Hots vibe I get from Hot Always. At some point, I'll need to test that one again.

    I checked out a list of Bond 9 frags, and here are my grades for each:

    New Harleem - Smells like Sweet Potato Pie/Cinnamon. The good thing about this scent is it probably has heavy sillage. Additionally, New Harleem is unique so this allows you to standout from the rest. C

    Little Italy - Has a strong lemon pledge scent, lmao, terrible. Why would anyone buy this? F

    Wall Street - Reminds me of a scent . . . . cant think of it. Nonetheless, theres nothing special about this one. I'm really surprised too, considering the amount of recommendations this received on this site D

    China Town - Smells like a lady's perfume, very rosy. I'm starting to notice a trend with Bond frags, their scents are far too literal. If a frag is suppose to have cinnamon note, it ends up being like 90 percent of the scent. Bond lacks subtlety, they smack you directly in the face with a note. F

    Hamptons - Again, this reminds me of another scent, lmao. Its ok, I notice some ginger, very spicy. C

    Central Park - *cough cough cough* I'm literally coughing after testing this out. Ugh. So strong. Most of the suggested Bond's frags have been very disappointing. F

    The only scent I like from Bond is Coney Island which I give an A. Also, I havent tried Highline and River Drive yet.

    Bleecker Street will stay in my collection; however I just had a chance to try Scent of Peace for Him and walked away seriously tempted. Last bottle that did that for me was Manhattan, which I purchased.

    Eau De New York is exhilarating; it smells like a flowery soap. Also, this scent is very strong and one dimensional. Smelling this is like getting hit in the face with a cold blast of flowers. I'm not sure if this works for a guy. Nonetheless, I give this a strong B.

    I'm tempted by that one, too. It smells absolutely amazing in sillage. I don't like it on my skin, but I love it in the air around me. I think that one, and New York Patchouli, are going to do well this Christmas.

    I'm the same way. Respect to Bond, and own a fair number, but Creed just nails me with bottle after bottle. They just put them right across home plate.

    Coney Island for me - I like it as a spring/summertime scent. I sampled some of the others and none of them stood out to me as must haves. I have not been able to sample I Love New York for All or New Haarlem - those are two that I very much would like to try.

    If you enjoy coffee-reminiscent gourmands, those are both very enjoyable. Excellent this time of year!

    I'm going to go with the seemingly more popular opinion as well, New Haarlem.

    Sampled both Chez and Success and liked both of those.

    Bond is a house that strikes my fancy now that my taste has moved beyond that of dept store fare.

    I like some of this houses scents. Also depends on what time of the year. Most Bond 9 scents for me are for fall winter and here in NY I'd never wear them late spring and summer.

    New York Oud - fall winter
    Scent of Peace for Him- fall winter
    New York Patchouli - fall winter
    Harrods for him - fall winter
    New York Amber - fall winter
    Wall Street is a year round scent and I'm ok with it but on me I get a lot of compliments from the ladies so it stays in the rotation.
    Hamptons is the only spring/summer fragrance I kind of like by Bond but its sort of in the same wheelhouse at SMW by Creed which I like much better so I would never buy a bottle.
