I've been just a bit "fragranced out" lately as I've been inundated with samples to review for Mother's Day. I needed a serious break. Thank goodness for Gramercy Park! I needed a "palette cleanser" between florals, something light and fresh. I was craving a green fragrance to try out.
Gramercy Park is just that, a light green scent that Bond created to envoke the Gramercy Park neighborhood. To me this sounds like the hidden gardens in the movie Notting Hill, a private gated haven of green grass and trees that is only accessible to those that live in the buildings around the park. A private oasis of greenery in the middle of the city.
In the bottle I smell primarily the green notes such as the Fresh Greens and Crisp Leafy Tones. But, after about an hour or so these brighter notes fade a bit to reveal a bit more of the deeper notes with a bit of English Ivy with some very light floral notes from the Cyclamen and I swear I smell a bit of Lily with a small touch of Lime in there as well. It really does smell like you're in a spring garden which is just what I was craving!
Top notes: Fresh Greens, Crisp Leafy Tones
Middle notes: White Muguet, Cyclamen, English Ivy, Lily of the Valley
Base Notes: Sheer Woods, Crystal Musk
Bond No. 9
On another Bond related note, remember the Swarovski Star Bon Bons that I posted about? Well, run over to Blogdorf Goodman! Annie saw them in person at Saks, and her pictures are just amazing! I thought they were cute before, but judging from Annie's pictures the "official" Bond picture did not do them justice! Amazing!
