I think I have found it, my favorite Bond No. 9 Fragrance! I was honestly a bit afraid to try out Chinatown, mostly because I love the bottle so much. I honestly thought my love of the design on the bottle would skew me towards the fragrance! But, when I heard that it is their #1 seller, I knew I had to try it out!
This fragrance is nothing like any fragrance I have tried before. I’ve been trying to figure out how to describe this fragrance all week, and the best description that I have come up with is warm and spicy. This fragrance is inviting and just seems to envelope you.
In the bottle you smell the Cardamon quite a bit, which really is the secret behind the spicy warmth. There’s a bit of fresh lightness that keeps it from being too heavy, and I believe this is the Peach Blossom. This scent doesn’t change very much on me, surprisingly enough. I get just a hint of the peach blossom, and with time the Cardamon deepens and becomes a bit more prominent.
Top Notes: Peach Blossom
Middle Notes: Peony, Gardenia, Tuberose, Patchouli
Base Notes: Cardamon, Dark Woods
If you have to find a present for a fragrance lover, definitely check this one out! I strongly recommend looking at the limited edition Swarovski Crystal Bottle, it is beautiful!
