The comment, on the other hand, will probably turn out somewhat worse in the grading.
Shelf life: with me clear and loose 12 hours, even beyond.
Sillage: Oh yes, he can.
Flacon: High quality and beautiful
Scent: yes I really like it BUT... because I own it myself.

Here on land, however, he doesn't seem to have sold well at all, probably one reason why he doesn't exist here anymore and a friend had to bring him to me from London.

My very honest opinion - but this also applies to all other fragrances that exceed the 200€ mark - it is not worth it. So for the money, and then in pounds, he wouldn't end up with me again. In addition, the bottle and the packaging have no ingredients whatsoever. Clearly a drawback for me. The hype and the price for all Bond No.9 fragrances I find almost impudent. I'm similar to Amoaugedüften.

Now to the fragrance. My subjetive perception is that the trend is towards "fast scents", so to speak.
Means: Spray on, clap, bam, and he's there. My nose does not perceive the rich, facet-like fragrance pyramid as signposted.

With me: Neroli, all the time, then (but actually already from the beginning), vervain. Also a subliminal metallic note. Could it have been myrrh? It's not in there. Is it maybe violets? Honestly, I don't know. Sometimes it pinches my nose during the day and it is too stinging for me.

Nevertheless, I need it from time to time but rather rarely.

I see a resemblance to Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, which turns out soapier on my skin.

All in all a hmmjaichweissnichtganzgut fragrance. BUT not for the price!

Jiddu Krishnamurti stressed ... .. .
.. .. ... in his lectures and books, that one should ALWAYS form one's own opinion and never just adopt the opinions of others. He is of course right with this statement ... but the convenience and other reasons sometimes prevent that.

So also with me: For lack of test possibility I took over the opinions expressed here to this smell 1 : 1 and did not consider it further, because I do not like 4711 and smells with strong Nerolinote anyway particularly.
A mistake, as it should turn out now, because I perceive Eau de New York completely differently. The tokens on the bottle with the names of different fragrances made me wonder and gave me the idea that EdNY should be a fresh conglomerate of several Bond°9 fragrances and thus a corporate identity fragrance composed.

It was written here of similarities to 4711, wondering that Vera Vanore didn't notice the similarity herself and called EdNY a copy of the German original 4711.
Sorry, I can't go along with that - even including different scents on the skin - for me EdNY is a fresh green aquatic with only small amounts of neroli.

After a hesperidic Colognestart - which has only a very distant 4711 impression - the flowers and herbs mentioned in the pyramid are quickly transferred. Now, at the latest, the suspicion of the fragrance conglomerate was confirmed with me. It smells similar to Green Irish Tweed or a mixture of the Bond°9 scents Chez Bond (soap-sweeter) and Riverside Drive (more herbaceous), both of which, according to the unanimous opinion of the American Youtube reviewers, represent an Americanized GIT version. In the base note, the usual notes of oakmoss, vetiver and musk for men's fragrances follow, which bring the fragrance to a classically elegant close.

It has to be said, however, that this fragrance has a somewhat synthetic effect, but this synthetic also has something to do with the long durability on the skin. Doesn't bother me in this and many other Bond°9s at all, it sets them apart from comparable scents - depending on your point of view - positive or negative.

I don't want to go further into the ambitious pricing and the sometimes somewhat unfortunate comments due to the mixture of price/fragrance (quality). Tip: The fragrances are now often available at much more moderate prices in the Inet from the well-known retailers.

I am happy to be able to enjoy this wonderful fragrance through a blind purchase.

For whom:
Free spirits and lovers of herb-fresh aquatic fragrances

When:
In the positive sense an Immergeher

Durability and Sillage:
For a citric green fragrance good ... 10 h ++ are easily accessible and the Sillage is well perceptible throughout ... EdNY is thus only slightly below the performance of GIT.

Note 1:
If you are looking for a summer fragrance with a long shelf life, Eau de New York can also be included in your considerations.

Note 2:
Also well suited for sports .. much better than some fragrances with 'Sport' in the name!

Citrus-Floral-Vetiver Refreshment!
I acquired a bottle of EAU DE NEW YORK after having sampled a vial more than a year ago, and I am happy to have done so. This is another example of a Bond no 9 creation that I only wear in hot weather and don't even really like once it gets cold (same story as CENTRAL PARK for me...). But I love this crisp citrus-floral-vetiver come summertime!

I do not find EAU DE NEW YORK soapy, although it really is very clean. Yet it is not a straightforward citrus cologne, as some might surmise from the top notes. I do aver that it bears similarities to other fragrances, including Banana Republic W, which costs about 1/10th the price. However, EAU DE NEW YORK is definitely richer to my nose, and has much better longevity.

Upon spritzing this composition on, I immediately experience a rush of citrus-woodiness, but it is much more about petit grain than juicy citrus (grapefruit and mandarin). The basil and verbena contribute a lot here too, and the vetiver is detectable as well. Neroli and lily are also key. All in all, a scrumptious array of notes woven together into a seamless tapestry of scent. I like it a lot and do not consider it overly masculine at all, as some reviewers have suggested.

Refreshing!

It doesn't remind me of Colonia Essenza. Maybe between GIT and Mugler Cologne but airier than those two.
