    Default What has a blue star shaped bottle and smells like garbage?

    I'm shocked! This stuff is disgusting... I congratulated myself though as this was the first time I actually trash a perfume sample... they dare call it perfume, I call it trash can BOTTLED (LOL)

    can anyone guess what it is ?

    Is this a game, or do you really want to know because you don't know?

    You're definitely not talking about Angel, because that does not smell like garbage at all. Unless your garbage smells like patchouli, chocolate, and caramel.
    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

    just wanted to see if anyone can guess what it is... I know what it is as I had an official sample of it.

    Angel, an iconic contemporary fragrance, is in a blue star shaped bottle. It is essentially a patchouli oriental with gourmand notes. It is not to everyones taste, but it is nevertheless an exceptional fragrance, IMO.

    Ooooooh! Or is it a Tauer?

    My guess is Bond No. 9 - Hampton's, Coney Island or Nuits de Noho.

    I happen to like several of Bond's fragrances. It's like anything else, what you enjoy I may not and vice-versa.

    To say you didn't like, would be one thing, but to call it garbage is a stretch.

    I won't keep you waiting for too long.... the winner is Bond's CONEY ISLAND! what a messed up fragrance that was. I never thought rotten fish accord existed until I tried this one

    Hopefully I didn't offend any Bond fans but this is the first time I react this way to a perfume, I usually tolerate most fragrances and if I don't like it I just say I don't, but this one was extremely bad and I couldn't even scrub it off easily!

    Oh! I have a sample. A fresh, slightly aromatic, fruity fragrance. No fishy notes to me and certainly no "garbage" notes.

    Agreed. Not one of my favorites, and certainly did not have any fishy notes.

    lol nice thread title. I thought you were talking about Angel, and I was ready to defend it, but alas, yeah I don't particularly like Bond no. 9 fragrances much either.

    ok let's try to describe Bond no.9 Coney Island in a different way. How about this... you're standing near rotten water, stale air, it's humid, you're standing next to a small lake or river so no salt water, you see some dead fish washed up on the shore and someone opened a garbage bag full of rotten fruits and left it there!?

    but then some parts of new york city do smell like that sometimes!!!

    I have Coney Island. I like it but don't love it. It has it's place IMO. Describing it as rotten fish is ridiculous hyperbolic crap in my opinion. If you don't like it then fine, but don't make yourself look stupid with that sort of rubbish.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    I have a handful of Coney Island samples. I think it is a very interesting fragrance. I liked it the first few times I wore it - then I started to not like it quite so much. I think it has a very unique combination of notes, but I certainly don't get any rotten fish note from it. Perhaps your sample has gone bad?
