    Default Favorite Bond No 9 Fragrance?

    What are your favorite Bond No 9 fragrances?

    Im looking to add a bottle to my collection. I sampled Scent of Peace for him and it was great, but it's very similar to Aventus and I already have a bottle of that.

    I've heard good things about New Haarlem, but Ive heard that it's very similar to Rochas Man, which I also have a bottle of but don't wear very often.

    The next bottle I'm looking to purchase right now is Green Irish Tweed, but I've heard Chez Bond is similar. Is there any truth to this?

    Scent of Peace for Him followed very closely by Riverside Drive.

    Not really big on any of them. Bleeker St is nice, but not FBW.

    I'm really not a Bond #9 fan (Scents and the company). Like Creed's to me they are in GENERAL (2-3 exceptions) "only" useful as a good entry into niche ones before moving on to better things. But my favorite is New Haarlem that is growing on me. The best from the line. Pancakes and a lot of syrup. What prevents it from being too sweet is the coffee note that is not milky, creamy and sweet but rather dry, even a bit harsh, like dark coffee beans over those pancakes and an aromatic vibe brought in by lavender.

    But you live in Arizona and to me it clearly shines in cold weather. It's one of the most comforting ones then...

    Bleeker street is nice but don't feel Ike owning any of them. Scent of peace for him is nice but I have a superior Aventus. Riverside drive is perhaps the only unique scent or at least one of the few. I'd own it because the dry down is fantastic but it's a little rough on the start.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The only one I have found OK of all the ones I've tried is Riverside Drive.

    Not a very good house IMO. Riverside Drive is their only palatable and unique fragrance.

    Heh. Tough for me. I like most of their scents.My favorite is Harrods Oud. You can get it without the crystals for much cheaper.

    If I had to pick a non oud, it will be Chez Bond http://www.bondno9.com/shop/eau-de-p...view/chez-bond

    The other ones I really like (and own) are (in no specific order)
    Harrods Agarwood (This is a different one than the one I mentioned above)
    New york Oud
    Hamptons
    New Haarlem
    SOPH
    H. O. T. Always
    I love NY for Fathers
    Bleecker Street
    Brooklyn
    Cooper Square
    Eau De New York
    Riverside Drive
    Great Jones


    As you can see, I am quite a fan of this house.

    Almost anything you buy from this house will have superior performance. They all smell very nice to me as well. I just do not get the negativity towards this house. I am also not aware of significant sample variations from this house. All in all a great house.

    I own the following: RIVERSIDE, SHELTER ISLAND, & MONTAUK. I really like but don't own NY OUD, NY MUSK, and SCENT OF PEACE FOR HIM. My favorite of the bunch however, is probably NY OUD.
    Summer Rotation:
    Dior Homme Sport
    Terre D’Hermes Eau Vetiver
    Riverside Drive Bond No 9
    Guerlain Homme Idéal Cologne
    Dolce & Gabanna Pour Homme
    Zegna Z Milan Edition

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    I don't get all the hate for Bond's scents. Yeah they are synthetic but so are most scents besides stuff from like Roja and Profumum Roma. The majority of their scents last and project and smell great. Like I said earlier Montauk is my fave but I think 14 bond fragrances are fbw

    Ones I Own:
    Montauk
    Bleeker Street
    Andy Warhol its discontinued though
    Chez Bond
    Scent of Peace for Him
    Riverside Drive
    Eau De New York
    Hamptons
    Great Jones

    Ones I plan on owning:
    New Haarlem
    Sag Harbor
    Shelter Island
    Http
    New York Oud
    New York Sandalwood

    It was Scent of Peace but it has been caught by Texas. I'm not real big on this house. Maybe it's because the SA stands behind a hundred or so bottles and attempts to burn your nose off like the back of an F18 fighter jet any time you get 5 feet from the Bond counter. I got a sample of Texas and ordered a bottle a few weeks ago. I'm getting pretty fond of it.

    Chez Bond seems to be getting a lot of love. How is it in your opinion? Some thoughts would be great.

    It has its similarities to GIT. It's a good scent.

    Another vote for Harrod's Oud. Alas, I never see it discounted, and it really isn't worth the 300 plus dollars they ask for it, so I likely won't buy a full bottle once my decant is out.

    Others I like, and which are more reasonably priced, include:
    NY Oud
    Chez Bond
    New Haarlem
    Ny Amber

    Haven't smelled one worth purchasing... Maybe if their prices were in the $30 range? Eh, probably not.

    Thanks for all the help. Green Irish Tweed is on my list of fragrances to purchase, but people have said that Chez Bond is similar. Is this true? If so, which one do you prefer?
