Thread: Chinatown

    Default Chinatown

    I love this. Is it a fem companion to new harlem? It has just enough sweetness to hold back the floral. I would def wear this. Any other guys wear this? Seems unisex to me.

    This is a masterpiece fragrance IMO. I have worn it a few times, but only around the house - I still seem to think it is a little feminine for me to pull off... Maybe my feelings about it will change, but for now, I will enjoy smelling it on my wife.

    Chinatown & Astor Place are among my absolute fragrances on a woman.

    chinatown is one of the better bonds out there. i like it. it's a bit too feminine for me to wear, but if i were a woman, i would add it to my collection.

    I like it too. Very big and sultry - don't wear often things like this (nor, say, things like Angel), but it happens. The candle is wonderful too.

    It smells great but quite standard for a tuberose & coconut combo which can be found for much cheaper from other brands.

    I guess I must be quite the stud, because I like it and I would wear it. I can "pull it off" with simply a few pumps on the trigger, you'd be surprised how easy it is. For my next magical trick, I will be wearing Angel tomorrow.

    My wife loves this stuff and I love it on her. Not my style, however doesn't mean you can't wear it.

    Same. I don't think that this one is a fragrance that a guy couldn't pull off, but I just think it's not something I'd ever prefer to wear. I'm not huge on tuberose though.

    My wife has a big bottle, smells great on her. Way too girlie for me to wear. We got it as a free gift when I went on a bit of a spree at the Park Avenue boutique last summer. Fabulous customer service.

    I like it as well, but too fem (sweet) for me personally.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    One of my favorites. I do not own it yet, but will some day. This and New Haarlem are the only Bond's that I have liked so far.

    I think it is a bit too floral for some guys to pull off, especially if they are leary about wearing anything that could be construed as being "feminine."

    I love it because it is very different and interesting.
