Likely the best bond 9 scent. It’s appealing , noticeable, sweet, dark a bit, lots going on. Very “nuanced,” but smells amazing. Longevity is quite bad which is a shame. If this lasted longer it would be a bestseller.

My favorite scent and it is packaged in its original package. I’m always receiving compliments when I wear this parfum.

My brother actually brought this fragrance for his wife's birthday last week because he liked how it smelled on his co-worker. Can I say, this dude NEVER does anything like that--so you KNOW I had to smell it!!!! Soooo......what do YOU think happened next, YUP....I "carefully" opened the packaging so I could smell/SPRAY it, AND "carefully" repackaged it back to brand NEW--don't judge ME. Now, THIS is when I IMMEDIATELY FELL IN LOVE, and ended up ordering it THAT night! I will say the tones in this fragrance are ME all day. Please be advised that this is a UNISEX fragrance, so if you are NOT a woodsy or musk type of female, then this may not be for you, AND this fragrance eventually fades, so keep it handy if you're going from work to happy hour (even during this Pandemic)!....*That was my DISCLAIMER*---by the way! Moving on..... At first spray (on ME), it had a nice spicy tone, then every woodsy fragrance came out, as it mellowed. I received a lot of compliments that night, but I had to be a lil "shy" about it, because I wasn't supposed to be wearing it, since it was SUPPOSED to be a gift for my Sis-N-Law...LOL From what I understand, though, once SHE received it on her actual birthday, she loved it too.....and it's a completely different smell on her! FYI--If you're a Bath-N-Body Works person, then this fragrance pairs nicely with Bonfire Bash or Champagne Toast Mist sprays, as the undertone (AGAIN,....both are a little woodsy, BUT, with some well matched floral undertones). GOOD LORD!!! I think I like the pairing with the latter, the best, it helps keep the strength of the perfume (in MY opinion) Overall--I know, right....FINALLY (HUSH)! This was an excellent purchase!! I JUST receive my Bond No. 9 Madison Square. Right now the jury is still out on this one, I'm still waiting for it to mellow, BUT I will say, which is surprising, the Rose and Apple smell REALLY good on my sweet spots,right about now...WHO KNEW! Review to come!
