Bond No 9. Coney Island Review … Worst Fragrance I Have Ever Smelled!
There aren’t a lot of fragrances that I hate. I especially love Bond No. 9 as a brand and may of their fragrances I wear and enjoy a lot and wear them on a regular basis including things like New Haarlem, West Side, Eau de New York, New York Oud, High Line and more. But unfortunately I cannot stand the much loved fragrance Coney Island. I don’t know what it is about Bond No 9. Coney Island but it really does rub me the wrong way. As soon as it touches my skin I am in rotten egg heaven after Easter holiday with a really strong rotten egg odor.
Crazy stuff but the combo of notes in Coney Island is some of the worst I think. I really think though what’s causing the stinky rotten egg accord in this fragrance is the big dominant melon note. Melon and fragrances do not go well together for me. And usually it comes off like seaweed or something eggy or rotten stinky to me and that’s what’s causing it in this fragrance Coney Island to react with me like that. Almost like sulfur or sulfuric!. Gross stuff.
So this is the very last time I’m putting my nose on Coney Island because I just can’t stand it.

Bond No 9 has a refill promotion twice a year. Once in the Spring and once in the Fall. November is the month well this refill promotion started on October 31st and goes until the 13th of November. So take your empty bottles into Saks or a Bond No 9 counter and buy two items from their collection and get a free refill bottle of your favorite Bond No 9 fragrance. The promotion only applies to what’s in stock so check with your SAs. But this is an excellent promotion and definitely worth taking advantage of. If you like New Haarlem buy two small bottles as gifts for someone and keep the large bottle of New Haarlem to yourself. 🙂
Or buy a New Haarlem candle plus another fragrance and get the large New Haarlem as a gift. Works great! 🙂 Check with your local Saks Fifth Avenue or Bond No 9.com for details on how this works!
Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue is a new launch from Bond No. 9. Perfumista Avenue didn’t blow me away at first but it certainly has grown on me on my second and third tries/wearings. It’s another fragrance that has a dominant rose note with a plum and leather thing along with it. At times Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue has a powdery thing happening too. This isn’t a big, powerful fragrance, it’s more softer but it does has lasting power.
Give Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue a try it actually will grow on you. If you like a nice rose or plum or leather fragrance I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Similar to Bond No 9 Perfumes – New York Musk and Bond No. 9 Perfume.
