I've tried maybe a dozen Bond No. 9 scents. There seems to be some note that is used in most of their scents that just does not sit well with me. I had to almost immediately scrub Bleecker Street off.
I did not have such an immediate bad reaction to New Haarlem, but my wife doesn't like sweet scents. New Haarlem is like you poured maple syrup on yourself. I find that it smells good for a short amount of time, but I don't want to smell like breakfast for hours
