One to like ... but not to love
I generally have a rough time with Bond no.9 fragrances. I find most of what I have tried to be more about flash than substance ... and to be fair I have only sampled about a dozen from the line, not having direct access to them where I live. I have some fabulous community friends who have spoiled me with samples :).

Strangely enough, Cooper Square tickles my recently rekindled fancy with Patchouli. I went through a stage of olfactory boredom with it some time ago, but that seems to have dissipated and I'm back to full enjoyment. I also like the resiny aspects here but first and foremost on my skin is a healthy dose of Lavender. This lends CS a strong 'old school' masculine vibe, faintly reminiscent of erstwhile homme-bombs like Jazz, Drakkar Noir and Paco Rabanne's original in the green bottle. Definitely more for the guys this one ... possibly even more for the twenty-to-thirty-something male set. As much as I like it I couldn't see myself carrying it off totally successfully as my tastes have changed ... but I'm sure if it had been around twenty years ago that would have been a different story ... I was known to be a chronic over sprayer of YSL's Jazz :) ... my fragrance usually arrived 10 minutes before I did!
The sillage and longevity here are above average ... I find others from this house weak and insipid.

All in all a very nice fragrance from Bond no.9 ... a statement I was despairing of ever making.
Would I spend the unconscionable asking price on it? No ... I wouldn't ... I maintain that one has to be an avid collector of this house to do that.

A Sophisticated Labdanum-Lavender-Woody-Myrrh for Men and Marlene
My nose must have been clogged the first time I wore Bond no 9 COOPER SQUARE. Or perhaps I was sniffing under dashed expectations. I was barely able to detect the lavender, usually a strong note to me, or the labdanum, one of my favorite notes. Today, for whatever reason--perhaps the heat and humidty?--the lavender and labdanum seem every bit as important as the myrrh, with the end result that this composition is far more likeable than I remember it having been.

I still feel that COOPER SQUARE is more masculine than feminine, but I can conceive of it as a sophisticated unisex fragrance as well--something that Marlene Dietrich could really dig. I would say Madonna, but now that she has launched a tuberose bomb, I'm not so sure whether she would like this or not... For sure this is too perfumey for Jennifer Aniston, whose favorite house I believe is Clean.

This is yet another of the many cases of change in view which make me wonder whether anyone's review ever has any but momentary validity. I do sometimes find a consistency over time, but I am starting to think that to write a review on a perfume tested only once is not such a good idea. Why? Because we always bring expectations to a new perfume, and our very first perception either confirms or refutes those expectations, which becomes the focus of our attention, distracting us from the more important evaluation of the perfume as a thing in itself.

COOPER SQUARE is definitely worth testing and does not smell like any other perfumes familiar to me. I'm not much for lavender in fragrances, but here it not loud or abrasive and, with the labdanum, it smells rather nice. There is also an aromaticity imparted by juniper, which is light and harmonic but still detectable. I do not detect the cognac note at all, but I do think that this creation is a good one. Again, it will probably appeal more to lords than to ladies.
