It took me a time to make up my mind about how to express my feelings about this new release of Bond no9 collection .
RoseSasso is right when writting that Hudson Yards is different from the other perfumes by Bond no9. It has a freshness and persistent green sparkle to it . Yet this is not enough for me to qualify it as original or innovative. It is just very green, neon green for most of the time, in spite of the fact that it lists white and pink flowers . Wow! I have just found out what it looks like: a completely green rose!
The perfume started with a strong dose of alcohol that scared me away, maybe the pink pepper did this to me and it was not pleasant. A hint of lily-of-the valley and freesia followed swiftly and died away and a green rose and orange blossom set in, close to the skin, not moving, not whispering not letting me connect with them at all. The longevity is modest. After about 3 hours there was a faint smell of rose. The Hudson River washed my perfume away. And gone it was!
