    Default First Bond No. 9 blind buy?

    Today I put in a super low bids on a BNIB 3.4 oz. Eau de New York and somehow I won! I've never sampled this scent and have no idea what it's like. What are your thoughts on this scent for $51 plus $6 shipping?

    Awesome frag...I really like it. It's lemony and green and it smells a lot like rain to me...if that even makes sense. Great buy, especially at that price. I hope you enjoy it.

    Keep 1.7oz. for yourself. Sell 5 x 0.34 decants on eBay at 20 dollars per decant + p&p. It will take a little time but you will make a profit after expenses of 25 dollars + you will get 1.7 oz. effectively for free.

    Then do it again. ;-)

    That's amazing -- I was wearing a sample just recently, and asked my daughter what she thought, and she said, "It smells like rain."

    I'm really happy this fragrance is getting talked about more, there's a lot more to the house than New Haarlem

    An awesome summer neroli oriented frag. This one seems to have a lot of naturals (and the color of the juice testifies to that theory). A quality and thoroughly enjoyable juice!

    An absolute steal (look up the retail price!) and a safe blind buy too. I paid much more for my bottle! Enjoy.

    One of my favorites from this house. I really enjoy it in the summer, and, like all Bond No. 9 fragrances, it gets very good longevity. Great deal!

    I give it a 3 out of 5. To my nose it has a grape popsicle vibe, neroli is definitely a prominent player in it. I would say that it is a fresh fragrance. For the price you got it for you can't go wrong Designer 1.7oz are more expensive, so you definitely caught a steal.
