Well, more for me then
One of the worst fragrances I have smelled. Buyer beware, if you buy the bon bon box not all fragrances are actually unisex. The reps said they were however.
I think Chinatown is one of Bond's best offerings
I find it quite an interesting fragrance. I have been the owner of a decant for more than a year now but haven't used it on a single occasion so far. Why? I find it quite overwhelming and on the "too sweet" side. I can't think of an occasion either which it would fit. I guess I should just be brave and put it on on a day when I am at home and alone.
My top 16:
1. Joop! - Homme 2. Puredistance - M
3. Tom Ford - Tobacco vanille 4. Tom Ford - Neroli portofino
5. Tauer - L'air de desert marocaine 6. Armani Privé - Ambre orient
7. Bond - Harrod's oud 8. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
9. Parf. Brückner - Aoud 1 10. Clive Christian - X
11.Xerjoff - Regio 12. Lush - Breath of God
13. M.Micaleff - Art collec. 102 14. Armani Privé - Figuier eden
15. Nasomatto - Pardon 16. Heeley - Oranges and lemons ...
I still have to try Chinatown. Somehow I missed that one and West Side at Saks last week.
I found it to be very similar t Beyond Love By Kilian
You haven't tried I Love NY for All by the looks of things :P
It is very sweet and a bit feminine, but it's definitely wearable if you're a guy. It's one of my favorites in the Bond lineup.
Current Top Five:
1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford
If you said Bond No. 9 is horrible I wouldn't disagree.
IMO I don't think Bond no 9 is horrible, just over rated as a niche.
Anybody else feel like Creed and Bond are the 'designer' houses of the niche houses? Know what I'm saying? They're almost well known enough to be non niche. And they seem to be the first niche houses that people are introduced to.
Want to trade - Tom Ford Extreme for Windsor, Amber Absolute, Aventus x02....
CHEAP CREED SPLITS
Millesime Imperial, Original Santal, Green Irish Tweed
Himalaya, Aventus, Tabarome
plus Amouage Honour & Fate Man

I adore Chinatown. But then again,
I love all nauseatingly sweet frags
One of the few bonds that is unique and great.
I own and love it
It's for the decided guy (on both sides of the decision).
One of Bond No.9's best! It can, like all fragrances, be worn by either gender and it is on my to-buy list
ÉGOÏSTE! ÉGOÏSTE! ÉGOÏSTE!
"OOOOOOH WHAT A GOAL! IT'S DANNY ROSE, ON HIS PREMIER LEAGUE DEBUT, WITH A MEMORABLE STRIKE!"

Everyone dismissing Bond as a house on the whole has never tried Harrods Oud.
I didn't hate it as much as you do, but certainly a "no buy" for me
It´s wonderful!!! It´s a masterpiece!!!
One of my favorites in the Bond line up (just like New Haarlem and NY OUD).
I think it's awesome...for my wife, I can't wear it, but I sure do like it on her.
I like it a lot. If they were to make a flanker that was less sweet, I'd be all over it.
Chinatown makes me feel ill and so does New Haarlem...I really thought I'd like them but alas.........
't's just ok, like most Bond No 9 offerings IMO.
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
