I find Coney Island's top notes to be one of the best renditions of a lime note around. My problem with it is that it stays a bit too linear. I only like a few Bonds, but to call this one garbage? No, I don't agree.
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
I'm sorry I made a mistake earlier, maybe it doesn't smell like rotten fish... it smells like fresh fish!

I'm happy to smell like garbage then, and my wife likes the smell of garbage on me...so if it smells like garbage, then pile it on me. To each their own.
A*Men is thee single most disgusting thing I've ever come across in my entire life!!! Literally makes me want to vomit. Not sure how this garbage sells. I'd rather just crap myself
By your description, you sure your sample didn't have used massengill juice?
I was like "Oh no, she didn't" when I though it was Angel that you were talking about :P
I do enjoy Bond fragrances with that said I don't enjoy some of their fragrances. Coney Island is one that I don't enjoy at all, yet I must say that to my nose it smells nothing like rotten fish.
All I get is a margarita smell with this fragrance, the note pyramid for the fragrance to my nose is not accurate because I get no chocolate, caramel or vanilla!!!!
I'm.....I'm happy for you and imma let you finish, but A*Men is one of the greatest fragrances of all time......of all time!!!!
Laughing...I have not sampled nor tried "Coney Island"...having grown up in Brooklyn NY and having exceedingly fond memories of Coney Island I would have hoped that such an iconic title would smell fantastic.

Does Bond No 9 Coney Island smell like Nathan's Hotdogs?

it's weird how many people clicked on this thread thinking it was Angel ... is it cuz many here think Thierry Mugler's release stinks or because many came to defend it ? I think it's 50/50

I only sampled Coney Island once. I actually found it pretty interesting and unique, and overall a pleasant smelling gourmand. On my skin, it smelled a bit too feminine, so I didn't wear it again, but I definitely didn't find it "bad" smelling. It's definitely quite unique, and a strange mix of notes, so I could easily see many people not taking to it. To each their own...
The problem with Bond fragrances is that 1) they make WAY too many of them, and 2) 90% of them are sub-par to mediocre. Just my opinion. There are a few that I truly like though, like New York Oud and ILNY for Marriage Equality. New Haarlem isn't bad either.

dont smell any rotten fish in coney island either but somethin ive noticed with samples, official or decant : sometimes it DOES develop a fishy smell ( in all uses of the word if u catch my drift ) , or almost like a wet rag smell . i bought a small decant of something and wore it a few times before it putting it away . bout 2 weeks later i took the cap off and it smelled fishy , i mean like fish . i was like wtf ? this has happened to a few other decants with some of them arriving to me with that fishy smell already there . it happened recently with a small decant of double vanille . i notice that when this happens its always with the plastic bottles and not glass ones and this has never happened to any of my full size bottles . i wondered if maybe its the moisture from under the lil plastic cap but this ironically happened with a 10ml decant of sushi imperiale that has no cap (but is in a plastic bottle) . i keep all my stuff , samples / decants / full sizes in a cool dark cabinet
It's funny, Coney Island is one of the VERY few Bond's I can stand.
