*Current Fragrance: Gris Clair by Serge Lutens
Before I get going, don't forget to enter the Florida Perfumed Primary Project / Harry Potter Trivia / Nail Polish Giveaway! (Only 5 days left!)
|Bond No. 9 Flagship Store|
For more about Bond No. 9, click here. Long story short - they're fragrances based on NYC neighborhoods. Which I think, is a totally fun idea. (I mean, imagine in Boston had a 1256 Boylston Line - if I've got the address right, it's a pretty funny place for a headquarters - I wonder what the fragrance for my neighborhood would smell like...?)
My testing yesterday went two very distinct ways, one I loved...one I did not. First the one I loved....
|Andy Warhol Union Square|
Now, High Line - that's another story....
|High Line (Wait, why am I captioning this? Y'all Can read...anyway...)|
So, you win some and you lose some. Bond No. 9 has a large line; I know I already LOVE Nuits de NoHo and Chinatown. Sometimes Bond No. 9 gets a bad wrap; and I'm trying to not read too many other reviews, as I want to be as objective as possible, I've got a LARGE bag of samples to work through.
If you'd like to try out the remainder of the High Line sample, let me know & I'll mail it to you. The Andy Warhol Union Square will be on its way to my Mom tomorrow.
