It started out so good and then it all crashed down
I loved the fresh, grass and hyacinth opening. Then as it warmed up I got a generic sharp floral thing going on, and a bit of tulip. It was pretty linear. I didn't care for it at all. I wish the opening lasted longer, that would have been worth buying. The sharp floral that takes over is almost a scrubber and I was a bit relieved when I couldn't smell it anymore.

Fruity-Fresh-Green Clean Spring Delight!
MADISON SQUARE PARK by Bond No.9

Absolutely gorgeous breath of unique, fruity-green-clean Spring freshness on my skin. This opens with a rush of morning dew laden cut grass all swathed in lushly blossoming hyacinth and wildly rambling ripe blueberry bushes.

A few elegant climbing roses are interspersed judiciously throughout, and add a just touch of refined floral grace to the composition, while a subdued teakwood/vetiver base adds a clean and well healed chic to the grounding elements without weighing down the entire spirited affair!

This is a distinctive mix of joyous and celebratory Spring radiance that smells like nothing else out there on my skin! It is outrageously clean without being soapy or detergent-like. It is fruity without being overly sweet or cloying. It is a uniquely uplifting potion of down-to-earth delight that I completely enjoy reveling in! Altogether rapturously beautiful and somewhat addictive! I cannot stop sniffing my wrists when this is applied!

Totally full bottle worthy for me! And a big 100ml bottle at that! And I'm spritzing away already!

Cheers and thank you to the House of Bond No.9 for this sparkling stunner!

Blueberry nightmare on my skin
I don't know what I was expecting from Madison Square Park, but I must admit that I'd thought it'd be a lot softer and more floral.

First things first, this fragrance hates my skin chemistry, it turns this fragrance into a sour berries and off-juice nightmare that gives me a crazy headache. Thankfully on paper it smells a hell of a lot better.

The opening is rich blueberries, not unlike John Galliano's new fragrance Parlez-Moi d'Amour. It kind of smells a little bit like an Escada release as well, especially with all those berry top notes and fizzy peach.

As the fragrance settles, a sweet and freshly mowed lawn scent comes to the fore, with a hint of roses and tulips, like you'd expect to smell in a bouquet from your lover. Unfortunately I don't get this beautiful blend on my skin.

I noted that it was quite a strong fragrance with a heck of a lot of fruits and flowers. It's a little too much for my poor little nose, although I do seem to enjoy the fresh rose note drizzled with berry syrup. I do believe that if this was applied with a light hand, it could be so much more appealing.

While I don't dislike it, I'm not a fan either. It just doesn't suit my tastes, and has presented itself as not agreeing with my chemistry, which usually suits most fragrances. I think I prefer Bond No.9's darker, more masculine offerings, like West Side for example. Please do test this fragrance before you buy.

Crispy, Sparkly, Citrusy, Hyacinth-and-Tart-Rhubarb-Like Perfume
Bond no 9 MADISON SQUARE PARK is thankfully a lot better than MADISON SOIREE, which I find unwearable (to my nose MADISON SOIREE is a somewhat rank soap scent—could be a skin chemistry issue, then again maybe not...). In fact, MADISON SQUARE PARK is a completely different genre: a kind of crispy and sparkly citrusy-fruity-floral perfect for the spring weather which had finally made its way out to these parts at the time when it was launched.

The opening of this Bond offering smells to me a bit like a cross between HIGH LINE and Guerlain AQUA ALLEGORIA PAMPLELUNE. Although grapefruit is not listed among the official notes, I really do smell a dominant quasi-grapefruit zest note in the opening. This gives way shortly thereafter to a hyacinth and tart rhubarb-like composition. All in all, a generally refreshing and optimistic scent. Not sure that I'd want a full bottle of this one, but I'd definitely wear it in the springtime, if I happened to have some lying around. For now, I'll work my way through my purse spray and then see whether MADISON SQUARE PARK has become an acquired need...

.....
Update: after a few more wearings, this one is going on my wishlist...
.....
Update #2: I own this now and find it very bright and shiny and uplifting...
