    Default Jumping into Bond

    Hi All,

    Looking to expand my collection- currently wear Creed GIT and OV, and Polo Black every once in a while on a night out. I've tried Bleeker and Wall St. and like both, however both seem a bit too powdery for me. Looking for something lighter (like SMW, but more masculine), and I have tried Chez Bond, but don't feel owning both that and GIT makes much sense. Wondering if there are any other Bonds worth trying to get my hands on- as I've found it difficult to find samples. Or are there any other houses/scents I should wander through?

    Riverside Drive is one of my favorite Bond's. it's not all that "light", but like anything else, this can be remedied with how you spray.

    +1 Riverside Dr

    Also, Hamptons is Bond's take on Silver Mountain Water, you may want to try that one. And last time I looked, there was tons of bon bons on ebay.

    I enjoy Andy Warhol Montauk a lot. It starts with bergamot and currant, but transforms into an ozonic hyacinth scent that evolves into a wonderful sweet/salty woody base of maple, oak, & driftwood. The ozonic hyacinth and the driftwood and sweet maple give it the feel of a fresh seaside breeze to me. It's one of the often overlooked Bond's, but is a summer favorite of mine (especially the drydown).

    And for an even cleaner, fresher, and more floral scent, I also enjoy High Line. It's dominated by hyacinth once again, and has an almost "shampoo" like fresh vibe.

    Another nice green/fresh fragrance from Bond is Gramercy Park. It begins with a blast of fresh cut grass and ivy and then turns into a sweeter green scent with an almost vanilla type note mixed with the green elements.

    I'm not sure of the powder you get from Bleeker...I don't get powder at all.

    Try's my favorite Bond because nothing else on any market smells anything like it.

    Or...jump into Bond because that is what the thread is all about. I own and love Little Italy, New Haarlem, ILNY Equality and Coney Island. All great!! Riverside is great, as well as ILNY for All. My wife loves and owns Madison Square, Scent of Peace, and Lexington Avenue. It's a great line. We like it a lot...don't let the naysayers sway you from giving it a try. I'm in Vegas right now and I'm going to check out their Saks scent. Here's to hoping its great!!

    Bond, IMO, is not good at light/fresh scents. They're better at gourmands.

    If you are looking for something similar to SMW, then Hamptons would be the closest thing from BN9 IMO.

    There are only few that I like from this house, but I would recommend you to also check out their "feminines": West Side, West Broadway, Washington Square,...
