Overlaps with Andy Warhol...
My impression is that these I LOVE NEW YORK series perfumes from Bond no 9 are a product of modular perfuming, using building blocks from some of the other already launched perfumes. In the case of FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY, I'm catching some serious wafts of something like a pared-down version of ANDY WARHOL (the purple bottle with Warhol's image on it). So, yes, incense, purple plum, and various and sundry woody elements and other orientalia.
This smells pretty good. It is less fruity than ANDY WARHOL (no peach here), somewhat less rich (no labdanum, either) and I imagine that most people who buy this particular installment in the line-up are not going to be perfume connoisseurs and will have no experience with most, if any, of the perfumes from this house. No harm done, is my view on the matter. If Bond no 9 needs to come up with these sorts of gimmicks to stay solvent, then that's fine with me. The quality is still better than most mainstream designer flankers.
