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.

Christian Dior Mitzah vs Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan
Christian Dior Mitzah and Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan are two beautiful ambers that I enjoy wearing. They both have similarities but loads of differences as well. Unfortunately Mitzah by Christian Dior from the La Collection Privee has been discontinued. So if you’re craving another bottle of Mitzah then look no further as Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan will satisfy just fine.
Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan comes off a bit earthy spicier with the cumin and caraway seed notes in it. Giving it a bit of a BO vibe but it’s an awesome amber fragrance and one of the best. And Mitzah by Christian Dior is a pretty version of an amber with loads of cinnamon and honey. Perfect for cozying up. Mitzah was inspired by Mitzah one of Christian Dior’s muses. To see a full review of Dior’s Mitzah see video after Christian Dior Mitzah VS Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan video.
L’Artisan Fou d’Absinthe is one of those fresh, clean, green scents utilizing loads of green notes such as wormwood/absinthe, star anise which comes off a bit licoricey but also has very herbal, pine like qualities to enhance the scent.
If you like anything with the anise note or anything with pine, fir notes you will love this fragrance. It’s perfect and green and recommended for everyday wear. At times it reminds me of B*Men by Thierry Mugler but this is a different fragrance on to it’s own. The nose behind this excellent fragrance is Olivia Giacobetti.
