A spring day with a touch of Asia in the air
This is my first comment on a Bond No.9 perfume. Bond - often hyped and sometimes stamped as a perfume brand that is more of a status symbol than a high perfume art (considering the prices) due to its chic star-shaped flacons. Most of the fragrances of the New York house, founded by Laurice Rahmé, are supposed to represent various New York districts and market their character in the form of a perfume. Most of them range in price from 200-300 euros and upwards (for 100ml), but with a little luck you can also dust off a bond for less.

One of the product lines of Bond No.9 is the "I Love New York" series, which also includes "I Love New York for Fathers" (I actually thought that the fragrance was called "I Love NY for Father's Day", but okay, so without Day...). To what extent the fragrance is no longer being produced, as stated here, I don't know. Anyway, it can't be found on the Bond No.9 website.

But let's talk about the fragrance itself. The past few days have been wonderfully spring-like, sunny and warm. Of course, this also invites you to finally get your fragrances out of the closet for warmer days and to wear them again. In addition a walk in the fresh air and testing in perfect surroundings, while letting your soul dangle and let the perfume take effect on you. The breakdown of the perfume notes already gives you a hint that I love NY for Fathers will have a green scent. This runs through top, heart and base notes with green elements. That's exactly what the wearer gets from this perfume. It begins with lime, which is initially sparkling and at the same time reinforced with a spicy touch of coriander, and to make sure that this doesn't come across too sharply, soft basil and coriander alternate equally. However, the lime of the top note fades away relatively quickly and the next three quarters of an hour is dominated by coriander. The fragrance is basically perfect to represent the scents of a park at the beginning of spring. Green-grassy notes and very slightly floral from the first petals that lean towards the sun. Mossy and slightly damp from the morning dew.

With time, the very dominant coriander note becomes somewhat weaker and brings out basil even more. Here the perfume begins to become more balanced. For me, this interplay of basil and coriander has a touch of Asia and Asian herbs in the nose. Nevertheless, I don't want to talk about an Asian garden in my imagination, the fragrance is still too western in its effect. In my opinion, the fragrance should have been called "Bond No.9 Central Park", I don't recognize the association with Father's Day. For that it would have needed a completely different, much rougher, possibly a barbershop scent. However - a very light barbershop-feeling is not enough for my taste.

However, the fragrance does not develop in a great way, but the top note is actually too present in the entire fragrance process, so that it usually appears linear. A few wooden chords in the base might not be too bad, but overall I still find Fathers well balanced. The Sillage is comparatively reserved, but the durability for a fresh scent is ok. A very solid scent that looks very natural and fits very well into the current season
