Bond No.9 I Love New York for All
Cocoa, Coffee Beans, Glazed Sugar of Hazelnut.
Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vanilla.
Here we have a sweet, beverage type gourmand from the prolific house of Bond No.9 aimed at the masses. I say that since it is supposed to be "For All". Personally, I don't know about the "for all" category since that encompasses multitudes too numerous to count.
It should be titled "I Love New York for 20 to 30 year old corporate ladder climbers". I can't help but think of yuppies who are single and have money to burn when smelling this scent. I never said it was an unsatisfactory scent, but I will say this isn't for everyone like its name claims. You should have a proclivity for hot and sweet caffeinated beverages in order to fully appreciate this creation.
Sillage, most notably in the opening, is very expansive. As the scent progresses, it remains respectable. Longevity is approximately 5 hours on me before morphing into a close fragrance. A sample wear is definitely recommended if you find yourself on the fence with sweet, gourmand-like creations. I don't love it nor do I hate it, so a positive neutral rating is warranted.
