Stay away from me
...might be a little harsh. Nevertheless, Bleecker Street is a fragrance which is not as good as the typical established test procedure of bringing the sprayed wrist directly to the nose.
In my experience, this kind of scent consumption with this bond gives the wrong impression, since a rather unpleasant looking synthetic, which accompanies the scent - and this should be known - until the end, can trigger something like escape reflexes.

Yesterday Monday, start of vacation... great stuff. Pleasantly tempered outside conditions, which finally let you breathe again after many days of scorching heat. Over the day the 26-27 degrees are not cracked and there is always a breeze.

First of all ... the circumstance of a free day in conjunction with these meteorological conditions lead to the ideal conditions to wear Bleecker Street. The so-called sweet spot is a popular term these days. This was hit in its entirety yesterday Monday. One sprayer on both wrists, please do not spray any more and keep the pencils down. This fragrance needs room to unfold, doesn't want to come too close to any nose in the world, knowing that it won't work properly otherwise. That's why you should ideally move around a lot in the fresh air, leave your hands as far as possible below and around the wearer a magical cloud of sweet-juicy currants is created, bedded on a green-woody base which is only subtly sweet due to a well-dosed jasmine, but especially in the prelude present enough to clearly underline the unisex character. In the further course of time - and I try to keep the distance described at the beginning - the sweetness on my skin decreases a bit and especially oak moss gives this bond a clearly masculine character. And nothing changes until the end of the process, because this fragrance, like a fire, needs air and oxygen to survive its absolute strength I loved this fragrance yesterday and, as long as I am sure of the right daytime conditions, I will wear it even more often on vacation.

Now I have realized why Bleecker Street leads a rather shadowy existence in my collection. The necessary circumstances are mostly not given in everyday life, which is a real pity. For this reason I will have to lower the score by half a point to 7.5. In the past I already thought about a sale, but now I am sure to keep it. It's too good under the ideal conditions that unfortunately occur too rarely. It also keeps its place in the Starting 8 for spring and summer despite its small range of use. These are seasonally exhibited on the wall in the living room, primarily against the background of frequent use, but also an attractive room image. The flacon is a visual eye-catcher and creeps something like good mood into the room.

Bleecker Street has been in my collection for almost 18 months. As far as the fragrance architecture is concerned, it has undergone a small change since then.
In the beginning, amber, but especially patchouli, came through much stronger. I cannot exclude that it is because of my nose, but today I perceive these components only very weakly. A maturing process could also have driven this process, which suggests that a healthy amount of natural ingredients have found their way into the bottle, in addition to the halfway dominant synthetics.

If you are looking for a green-fresh fragrance for your leisure time in the bright season, a test from Bleecker Street is recommended.

Look mer times
Yes, it's certainly beautiful. Bleecker Street from Bond No. 9. If you believe all the reviews, this is THE fragrance of Bond No. 9 at all. The bottle is especially beautiful. Many people might think it's kitschy, but I like it with its bright colors in green and purple.

At first sniff, I was in raptures. You all know the feeling. You test a new scent and the first thing you do is check the prices. Especially when you know for sure that the nose is enjoying a not quite inexpensive candidate. But do you really need this gaudy greenling that costs so much in your collection? I was unsure. And I still am.

Because I think this Bleecker Street guy's a mean phony. He has such an adorable top note. Are those blackcurrants I smell? Is that thyme? Violet leaf? Since the fragrances of this brand are all rather synthetically designed, I can't say for sure if I smell cassis and thyme. What I smell in the first 15 minutes, however, I find phenomenal. It's soft, it's fresh, it's green and it's underlaid with a very delicate sweetness. With the sweetness, I guess vanilla, which should only show up at the end of the process. But I don't smell grass and meadow here now. Yes, the smell has something green, but I don't find this typical smell of freshly cut grass here. If you want it to be as authentic as possible, you better go to Creeds Original Vetiver or Trudon II.

Unfortunately this beautiful top note does not last too long. The fragrance tends to become fresher and more masculine. At the start I would have thought, "OK, but it's not really right for men." A little later I see it on me, or on the lady in general, but rather out of place. Because what comes next is actually a little bit in the direction of the fresh notes known from fragrances like Aventus (Creed) or Gentle Fluidity Silver (MFK). The latter is of course also considered unisex, but for my personal taste, such a fragrance on my skin would be too masculine.

This impression of the fragrance lingers with me until the end. I can't make out leather notes any more than I can oakmoss. I still put up with ambergris and cedar wood, that might be possible. But in principle we have here simply a rather simple fresh scent for the warmer days with a slightly tart and sour base. If I knew better, I would say quite clearly that we are dealing with a vetiver scent. I see parallels to Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford (against whom I tested it out of interest) and a tiny hint of Bal d'Afrique by Byredo, which I think is wonderful, shimmers through here. Only without the creamy tones. I can't smell jasmine for the life of me. That sounds almost a bit mean, but from the heart note on it has a bit of a shower gel from the drugstore for my nose
The smell is good, no question. And it lasts very well, like most of the fragrances of this brand. But now for the question of all questions. Is it worth the money? If this phenomenal top note lasted any longer, I would be inclined to buy it immediately. But since that is not the case, I say - in good Swabian - take a look. Even if my review doesn't sound quite so enthusiastic now. This is not one that I exclude. Maybe I'll get it one day after all.

Love thanks to Chizza for the rehearsal.

Noble newcomer, who somehow always walks
The bonds have relatively few friends here. Too flashy, too synthetic, overpriced, ugly bottles. And so on, and so on... I myself am of the opinion that scents are always a matter of taste. I myself have my difficulties with Xerjoff, Amouage or Creed, for example. However, I am not of the opinion that scents are useless or badly made. They just do not meet my personal taste. And prices are relative, depending on how much someone can or wants to spend.

Bleecker Street moved into my collection as my second Bond last summer. And since then, the joy of the purchase and my affection for him has not waned. Unfortunately, I have a hard time with the description at Bleecker Street of all places. To be honest, I can't smell a single one of the fragrances mentioned above. Except currant. And only since I read that Zauber600 smelled a Campino candy in it. The blackcurrant one, always my favourite Campino. Since then, I have at least noticed this one inside. But the rest, as I said before, I have a hard time with
So I'm just going to give you my scent impression. Bleecker Street is fresh, yet gentle, green (I don't smell grass like in Grass from GAP or Truth from CK). On some days I get a sweeter touch, which remotely reminds me of a bakery, but as I said, not always. Overall, Bleecker Street seems rather synthetic to me, but pleasantly synthetic. Never pungent or alcoholic. I do notice a bit of vanilla every now and then, but reserved, unsweet vanilla, not opulent Guerlain vanilla. A bit spicy to me, too, it is cool like a shady green park... As I said, I can only give the overall impression of Bleecker Street, no scents.

I do not consider him to be masculine, this fragrance is also my husband's favourite scent of me. Which makes me very happy. So it doesn't seem particularly masculine to others about me. What I like less is the bottle, but that's not really important to me. In general, I like the Bonds bottles less than the fragrances.

By the way, Bleecker Street is one of the few fragrances that I would buy any time I wanted to.

Mass appealing fresh scent
Bleecker street is a nice green fresh scent. You can wear it without hesitation (very suitable for the masses).
I find the scent DNA quite unique in a positive sense. The durability is really good for a fresh scent on my skin.
The Sillage is in midfield and could be a little better.
All in all Bond no.9 bleecker street is a very good scent that I like to wear again and again.

Green, fresh, appeals to the masses.
First of all, I am not a huge fan of fresh scents, but rather of vanilla gouramands. Besides, I have the problem that a lot of newcomers are almost stinging in my nose.

When I first applied Bleeker Street I thought it was one of those and it almost had a mainstream designer appeal, but that went away after about a minute. Fortunately, it turned out to be a greenish, fresh scent with a touch of freshly showered and a green note.

It develops from a green newbie to a fresh greenling. So he starts out fresher and becomes greener and calmer with time, if that makes sense.

Although I'm not the type for fresh perfumes, I can recommend this one.
The durability and projection is really remarkable for a fresh scent.

Good news: its's green fresh Whoo-hoo!
Corona crisis, bad news, bad mood, grim faces, nerves are on edge...
It's time Leudeee, time for some good news! Or?

Today it had to be again, the Bleecker literally begged me to be carried. He said to me:

"Boy, it's warm, the sun is shining, shops are partly open again, you need something to express the mood."

Okayyyyyy, I'll give in to him, he's kind of right...

Hach guys, what can I say, he was right, it's just a good humour perfume. It already starts with the bottle, which is kitschy to look at and likes to tempt me to put on "feel good" music. But its fragrance also further underlines the emotional state. It is green, very grassy, like a meadow full of juicy green grass. In addition, it has - like the Aventus or the Aqaysos, for example - a nice pencil note, which is given to it by the cedar. It gives it a tart and distinctive touch. Joa also he is extremely freshhhhh! At the beginning - and I like that especially - we who smell it can enjoy fruity currant. Wonderful!

I often had to push the durability and the sillage up again, because I underestimated it at first, but after wearing it several times I realized that it can do more. It lasts a good 7 hours and is well noticeable at least in the first three hours. Afterwards it appears again and again under the olfactory bulb. I think that's good for a fresh scent, don't you?

The bottle can be placed on the table to keep the mood at a high level!

Price, yeah...
Hmm...
Expensive, that's right!
I always look that I get the times in the offer, if you search for a long time, you find 100ml also times for 130 euros or 50ml for scarce 100, that is bearable!

He is especially something for you if you:
- Aqaysos, Aventus, Agua fresca extreme etc. likes
- like to have it fresh around their noses
- a discreetly biting fruity note can be detected
- also sometimes attaches importance to a horny flacon
- good Vibes just simply can use

So you see: it's time for good news!

Easter Sunday and Bleecker Street
On festive days I like to wear chic perfumes. Do you? Bond No.9 Bleecker Street is one of my latest additions to my perfume collection and my third perfume from the New York house. Bleecker Street is one of the top 10 "Spring Fragrances" on YouTube, and it's the most popular perfume on the internet. So it's also clear that there's a certain hype and people become aware of such a fragrance and it's sure to be bought more.

Bleecker Street in New York is located in the Greenwich Village District of Manhattan and runs in a west-east direction. If you take a walk through Google Street View, you will first discover a bunch of restaurants and cafes to the right and left of the street, at some point you cross Broadway and then there are mainly apartments along the street. Besides, the night club scene is said to be quite good there, all in all a corner that invites to go out in the evening. But Bond No.9 Bleecker Street's scent pyramid suggests that this is not and is not an evening scent for going out.

Unfortunately, I had to search for a long time for a perfumery that sells Bond fragrances. Coincidentally, I finally came across Bond fragrances in Leipzig about 3 years ago and then tried one or the other. Out front: Bleecker Street. I absolutely had to test it, I only knew the scent pyramid and the corresponding reviews. The first time I tested it I was absolutely overwhelmed, especially by the juicy sour currant in the top note, which definitely stayed on the skin for a while. Also the shelf life was really good for a fresh scent. It was one of the first times that I ever got to enjoy niche perfumes. My thought a few hours later: this bond could one day be the first bond I'll buy - after all, the prices aren't that low.

However, last Easter Sunday the Easter Bunny brought me other gifts, including a rum from Panama. What does this have to do with Bleecker Street? Nothing. Because I was already in possession of the scent and no longer dependent on the Easter Bunny. A few weeks ago, the time had come and Bleecker Street arrived in my mailbox. In fact, I didn't even touch the scent for a while. I still knew exactly what I was smelling and I was looking forward to Easter, because now on Easter Sunday Bleecker Street should be my SOTD for the first time.

Spray on the neck and then again on the wrist, then let the nose dive deeply into the black currant and daaaaann Huh? How now? Where did he go? I just sprayed Bleecker Street on my hand?! Honestly, for the first 10-15 seconds I smell absolutely nothing on my skin. That's very strange, because three years earlier the currant had come to me full carrot. It is indeed the case that the scent first hides and then very slowly emerges from its cover. And the currant is so weak that I can't even compare it with then. That's when the alarm system with the inscription "Reformulierung" (reformulation) goes on :-( I don't know if this is true, if the scent was reformulated but this has not much to do with the memories of that time. The scent remains green and fresh, sometimes you walk past a bush of black currants, but they look pale. The whole thing is combined with a mossy-sweet base with some fruit, which makes it stand out from the "just freshies" scents.

Unfortunately, my Bleecker Street bottle does not trigger the springtime associations I got after the first time I tested it. It feels harmless, generic, interchangeable. Yes, the DNA is good but it seems watered down. I wish it smelled like it did from my memory - so the disappointment is great. I could easily give the scent a 9.0 or more because I know what it can or could do... but unfortunately I have to deduct points. My recommendation therefore: do not buy blind, but get a tester! It's a real pity, Bleecker Street. I guess you're not the same anymore

Rarely have I found it more difficult to evaluate a fragrance. I tested it intensively for one week and from 5 to 10 every rating was there.

I think my first disappointment was simply that I imagined him to be fresher. The unfulfilled expectations are always one of those things...

But with each test I found it a little better and more interesting. Especially the Drydown is very appealing. You have to like grassy notes to enjoy this fragrance. But these peaks are well intercepted by the berry notes. Especially at this point I like the fact that it's not the kind of overwhelming fruitiness that's being used at the moment.

Despite its 15 years on the hunchback, the fragrance still has a modern look for me and also the potential to become an evergreen.

Speaking of green... ...because of his grassy notes, especially in the beginning, I once had him play LV Sur la Route. In direct comparison, the Sur la Route seems more grassy, intense and natural to me. Bleecker Street, on the other hand, scores with a slightly more interesting scent. What they have in common is that their price is simply outrageous. That's also the main reason why I haven't bought either of them yet. If I should still change my mind here, there would be slight tendencies towards Sur la Route ;-)

Testing this fragrance was definitely fun. Thanks in this context to Schoorck, who made this so uncomplicated possible :-)

Jeremy says ...
Well, now I may have your attention, may I?
Did I?
Fits!

Yeah, I know it was kind of cheap now. But I have to agree with Jeremy on one thing, even though I can't stand his discreetly narcissistic nature. So he reports that Bleeker Street smells like freshly cut grass. Here I agree with him, but with a few exceptions.

As someone who was introduced to the art of lawn mowing in his early childhood, I'm sure I can say that when the lawn is mown in the morning, when it's not so hot and the green is still a little damp, it's characterized by an idyllic juiciness.
But you don't feel much of this juiciness anymore if you sleep a little longer and have to postpone mowing until the afternoon, for example, in order not to rip the neighbouring pensioners out of their midday nap. If you don't start the lawn mower until about 3 pm, the midday heat usually erases the last bit of juice from every single blade of grass. Now there is not much left of the green juiciness. Instead, a musty green fragrance cloud, decorated with tons of dust and dirt, spreads out and one wonders why one did not get up earlier.

"Bleeker Street isn't the morning mow or the afternoon mow. It's somewhere in between. At the beginning still very airy and fresh, the fragrance condenses after about half an hour and is no longer quite so transparent. In the beginning, the currant and the violet actually provided a grass-like green prelude. The currant was responsible for the juiciness, while the violet was responsible for the green-herbal note. This green and herbaceous juiciness is then underlaid with a slightly musty creaminess and thus automatically loses its airiness. Responsible for the soft transparency and airiness might be the cinnamon, which I don't smell explicitly, but also the cedar wood might have its part in this changing fragrance impression. But it's all very difficult, at least for me, to smell.

With the insertion of the base note, it becomes really green again. The oak moss and the patchouli are involved here and now give the composition a very herbaceous green coat of paint, which additionally experiences a minimal sweetness, evoked by the vanilla. By the way, I don't perceive leather here - that much should be said in conclusion.

Are we dealing with freshly mown lawns here now? I say "Jain." It's much more a meadow, far away from the meticulously maintained English lawn, where moss, violets, patchouli and other green niceties coexist. The contents of our lawn mower basket are a herbaceous-green mixture that can still call a certain residual moisture its own. Apparently we didn't quite stick to the rest periods and mowed already at noon, so that not everything was completely dried out yet. The Office of Public Order is already at the door, the mummified neighborhood Stasi on the balcony, I quickly hide in the shed - the lawn-cutting midday sprinkler

A satire ("No. 2 of the "I don't understand the hype" fragrances)
Hardly a "Spring/Summer 201x" list goes by without the candidate being named here.
Maybe it's my inexperience, maybe I don't know anything about perfume, but... no, you know what? Meanwhile I have enough knowledge to tell myself that this is not a well made perfume.

I know I'm not gonna make friends with that comment. To all who read this and like the scent - please don't take it personally.

I'm not sure Bond Number 9 is serious about us here yet. Bleecker Street looks like a satire of new-fangled shower gel fragrances or fruity, fresh and woody fragrances. All the prejudices are clattered down here - starting with the fresh, fruity woodiness (distant towards Aventus) mixed with pure, arrogant, disgusting synthetics. For the mass market accessible, the Panty Dropper, Complement Getter a la Jeremy.
Beginning with synthetic currant wrapped in synthetic green notes. There is nothing more to say about the fragrance. Have I already mentioned the synthetics?
Yeah, it's fresh.
Yes, it's fruity.
Yes, it's green.
Yeah, it's good to wear in spring or summer. The only question is whether you want that too...

But now I come to my most important criticism:
The price/performance ratio. I always take this into account as a factor in the evaluation, but it has hardly been worth mentioning so far. But Bleecker Street looks different.
Because this is underground, a farce, rip-off, impertinence. Please add more of these words here. I just checked the homepage. The house charges for 100ml, believe it or not, 370 dollars.

I repeat: !!Three hundred and seventy dollars!!

At 50ml, you'll get your $250!!! buttoned off.
You also get a terribly cheap looking bottle. I always have the words "want, but can't" on my lips.
That Bleecker Street is a 370 dollar expensive, mass-produced perfume, which goes in the direction of Aventus with a green impact, is completely okay. But if a brute superficiality of pure synthetic, which is worse than many a five euro perfume, flutters against you, it becomes a problem.

Conclusion:
Buy yourselves Aventus.
