Bond No 9 Central Park West Review: A Different FloralWednesday, March 07, 2012
This is definitely floral. But, it isn't the "normal" white floral that you're used to. It is very heavy in Narcissus for me, but it is warmer than usual, in large part because of the Citrus middle note. The 2 are very prominent on my skin and mix together to be floral, citrus, a little bit sweet and just... cozy? I feel cozy in this fragrance. I really can't describe it any better.
Top: Narcissus, Ylang Ylang, Black Pepper
Middle: Velvety white Gardenia, Jasmine, Citrus, Orris
Base: Vetiver, Musk, White Oak, Treemoss
Note that on me, the fragrance was the same at the beginning as it was hours later, there was no burn off. It lasts all day, and while it was noticeable, it isn't an overwhelming fragrance. It is just... there. Warm and sweet and floral and just inviting. I've been wearing this for home, for work, for running errands... it would probably be a bit out of place for a night at the bar, but it is perfect for a romantic date night. Can you smell it inviting you closer?
