    Most marketing for fragrance is lame. But this is a whole new level. Only available online? So much for selling more product. I'll reserve my true judgment till I've tried the Fragrance, but between that, the Aventus themed note breakdown, and that fugly bottle...

    And again, I have a few Bonds I really enjoy, I don't dislike the house

    If the marketing/advertising side of it were lame, all of us wouldn't be talking about the frag right now.

    All the speculation about the fragrance on this thread makes me think that Bond No. 9 are getting their money's worth from the campaign.

    I don't hold grudges against any house. If they make good scents, I buy them. Bond definitely has some redundant scents, but also some very good ones. I am hoping this one is great. Not sure how they will plan on us sampling it however. Will they have it at their counters and tell us we need to buy online? I guess we will see. Hopefully they will send samples to those on their mailing list as they did with New York Musk.

    I think it'll be interesting to get Bond's take on Aventus.

    Smells like Aventus (to be confirmed), is from New York, and is only available online?

    This is a blatant rip-off of Fresco.

    Hope so! Otherwise, I may just need to blind-buy this one..

    How does that post from Bond's FB page lead you to believe that it was created especially with the FB group in mind? If you want to draw such inferences, then they also created it with every web-user in mind.
    Listing things like Facebook and Twitter in merely part of their marketing pitch, and I certainly can't see any evidence that they created it for their Facebook friends.

    Did they engage in testing and feedback? Did they ask the FB friends what sort of fragrance they wanted? Or are they, as I suspect, merely using other brand names that are part of modern popular culture to promote the theme of their fragrance launch.

    I'm not criticising Bond, here. I would really like to smell this, but to think that they dedicated or designed a fragrance for their Facebook friends is rather far-fetched.
