    Default Versatile & interesting Spring scent: Bleecker Street vs SMW vs Chez Bond

    As per title, which of these do you think is most versatile while still being interesting/unique?

    Bond No. 9 Bleecker Street
    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    Bond No. 9 Chez Bond

    I find Bleecker Street the most interesting (love the drydown) but maybe a little harder to wear (green top-notes). Both SMW and Chez Bond are very pleasant but I'm concerned that perhaps they'll get boring after a while.

    I already own Aventus which I plan to tag-team with

    I think Bleecker is best for both, I can't think of too many occasions that Bleecker would be unacceptable to wear, you would just have to control your sprays.

    This. I happen to be wearing Bleecker Street now. Incredible fragrance. Chez Bond is great also. Don't like SMW at all really.

    Bleecker Street is one of my most complimented fragrances - second only to Aventus.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    I had a complete stranger on the street compliment me on Bleecker Street when I gave it a test wear. I've never had anything like that happen before. Ever. Bleecker Street has spring written all over it.

    I think Aventus was Creed's take on a Bleecker Street type fragrance. Aventus is NOT a copy in any way - I'm definitely not suggesting it is - but the two have a similar, not to mention similarly unique, vibe. Big enthusiastic thumbs up for both.
    Currently wearing: H.M. by Hanae Mori

    Thanks guys. Quite a lot of love for Bleecker! I figured it would be between this and SMW. Only problem is that it is also more expensive than the other two. Can't find it cheaper than $150 anywhere compared to the $100 for SMW/Chez on the discounter sites.

    SMW would be my choice.

    Bleecker Street by Bond No. 9 - a masterfully blended, masculine and somewhat light composition.

    Bleecker Street. Longevity and projection are excellent. Perfect for spring.
