    Default How many sprays? Bond No. 9 Edition

    I tried searching to try and find how many sprays people have mentioned about wearing when it comes to Bond No. 9 (scent(s)); but I didn't necessarily find what I was looking for.

    So, how many sprays do you find to be appropriate; not overbearing, when it comes to wearing for college/work?

    Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York:
    Bleecker Street:
    Chez Bond:
    Coney Island:
    I Love New York for All:
    I Love New York for Marriage Equality:
    New York Amber:
    Brooklyn:



    Note: This is not a thread for your opinion on whether you think this house/any of these fragrances are not worthy, so please hold your voicing for that. This thread is meant for the 'considered' appropriate amount of sprays for the above suggested. Thanks

    Also, feel free to add any other Bond No. 9 scents.

    20. It's easy to remember:

    A spray for each finger.
    And one for each of your toes.
    Then, wherever you might walk,
    trust me, everyone knows.

    P.S. I'm enjoying Manhattan more and more. I was wrong to write that one off initially. I'm actually a 3 spray guy for the most part. Occasionally 4.

    3-4 for Bond's for you?

    A big reason I made this thread is because I'm looking to wear the Andy Success one to campus today, and I haven't given it a full wearing in public yet, and I don't want to be overbearing, .

    I'm guessing 2-3.., but... 2? 3? And I'm mainly a chest/neck kind of sprayer when it comes to actually wearing.

    Success is a Job in NYC is an odd one. I wouldn't go past 3 sprays.

    I haven't worn Andy Success, but 3 sprays for Andy Warhol was PLENTY. With Bleecker Street, I only wore two (one of which also got on my jacket and I could smell it there for over a week. WOW. That being said, when in doubt, I always go low since it never hurts to wear too little, but it can be embarrassing to wear too much. So, I'd go with 2 if I were you. Go with 2 and see how it wears. (I really liked Andy Warhol. If it were just a bit more masculine I'd probably have bought it)

    I always do a test wear alone first. I like to know how something new will wear on me. Really, that's the only way to know.

    Do not go over 3 sprays with New York Amber though. That one is a projection beast. Most Bond No. 9 fragrances last a long time and project pretty well, but NY Amber lasts forever, and projects quite loudly for much of its life.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. Puredistance - Black

    5. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    6. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    7. Brückner - Aoud 1
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Creed - Royal Oud
    10. Chanel - Egoiste

    3 all Bond's last and project massively even when it doesn't seem that they do.

    Asking how many sprays of several fragrances from 1 house should you use is like asking whether you should wear your p***s on right side or left side of underwear. Seriously, just use as many as you can tolerate without making people around you angry.

    Of the ones listed by the OP, the only ones I'd be careful with overspraying are NY Amber and Success Is a Job In NY.
    Splits!

    Generally, Bonds are strong (I've tried four of your listed scents, and all were par for the course for Bond strength). Three is your limit. You may want to apply more because you're used to doing so with other houses -- but don't.

    I'd bet with three sprays, you'll clearly smell the chosen Bond at the end of the day, and will be glad you didn't opt for more.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver
