No sex in the city!
As you know, I am knitted a little bit simple from time to time and so nobody will be surprised that I immediately thought of "Sex in the City" or similar stories with the name "Vamp à NY".
My imagination showed young women dressed in a scarce, but not still dressed way, casually swinging their bulging bags of well-known fashion labels, chattering cheerfully through the streets.
Shop windows and men are distributed - nicely and evenly! - reviewed!
Of course, they are also equipped with the right kicks and handbags.
Finally, still chatting and having fun, they end up in some cult bar.
There they "store" picturesquely and with a current cocktail with umbrella and drinking trunks strewn, in one of the noble seat corners.
It goes without saying that their attention often drifts away enough to make every man in their environment think about whether it would be worth it to pinch him in the crisp ass.
(Sorry, gentlemen! But that's the way it is!)

But I didn't expect a late teenager chewing chewing gum, dressed carelessly and visibly bored in a corner of one of the many coffeebars, with no eye-catcher other than a large bundle of pink and light blue balloons
After the fragrance pyramid I really imagined something entertaining, extraordinary, maybe even slightly crazy:
Heavy creamy vanilla soaked with rum - that sounds already very good and it is also here!
But I also ask myself: Why is tuberose actually on its way with a club?
A New York vamp with a baseball bat
Even the "friendly" statement: "Darling, you're getting old! You don't understand this scent", this scent collage can't save me anymore.
Unfortunately the two fragrant, warming and inspiring beauties Tolu- and Perubalsam can't change this.
According to my "clever book" Tolubalsam is supposed to work against lack of inspiration and creativity.
Well, yeah! Here my oh, so lively "Sex in the City"-Phantasie is drawn creatively and racy, heartlessly killed and also the resinous benzoe-spice is no "live saver" for this fragrance composition!
No sex in the city, I'm afraid

This sweet creature is not only pushy, it is also very affectionate!
A "No!", even in the form of a lot of water and soap, does not accept it: it flakes on my skin until it disappears by itself; the time it determines itself.
It's a miracle that this fragrance doesn't yet feel your feet on the table!
I admit: obviously I was on the wrong steamer here from the beginning!
The name "Vamp à NY" has awakened in me ideas that were probably a little too old-fashioned or media-colored.
There is nothing left but a bundle of colorful balloons and some beautiful colorful soap bubbles: but also the burst as is well known soon

Very helpful Review 4  
A rum cocktail followed by a large slice of fluffy, vanilla tuberose cake. ...
Initially I get something a bit aquatic tropical fruity, perhaps some lychee mixed with the very sweet rum like note. Then it gets a little heavier with a sweet, fun tuberose and loads of vanilla. Perfectly pleasant, popular but natural smelling, young, easy to wear. It reminds me of Miller Harris Tuberosa, but softer, sweeter and minus the musk. My teenage daughters liked this and they are tough customers, so this is likely to be a people pleaser. Probably not for me but it's very nice and if you are looking for a sweet, heavy on the vanilla tuberose, then this is definitely worth a try.
Sillage and longevity are good, impressive for an all natural, must be those resins.

Simply love Vamp
This is a very simple composition, natural sweet tuberose, not loud and not overly embelished. I really enjoy wearing this buttery sweet tuberose, accompanied with a dash of benzoin and rum, making this quite a balmy perfume. I would recommend for Tuberose lovers.

Not really a contender, in this crowded corner...
Honoré des Prés VAMP A NY is a thick, somewhat undifferentiated tuberose perfume which seems somehow amateurish. The texture reminded me a bit of Versace BLONDE, so I decided to do a quick side-by-side comparison, and discovered that VAMP A NY cannot really compete in the crowded corner of fine tuberose perfumes.

First, VAMP does not smell at all vampy next to BLONDE, which is not in and of itself a fatal blow, but it also just does not smell as good. Ironically, it smells less natural, in addition to being far less complex, despite the fact that VAMP is apparently 100% natural, which Versace BLONDE certainly is not. There is a sort of vague sweetness to this composition, imparted I gather by the vanilla and the rum, but when all is said and sniffed, it really smells rather mushy to me.

In the end what really matters is not the gimmick, or the hype, but the scent. VAMP, to my nose, is one of the least inviting tuberose perfumes I've smelled. It's certainly not repulsive, but there are so many better options out there: BLONDE, FRACAS, NOIX DE TUBEROSE, even CARNAL FLOWER, which I do not particularly like because plant pheromones are not really my thing, but it's still more inviting than VAMP.

I'm happy to have tested this perfume, but VAMP A NY will not be joining my collection. It's just not that good, and I don't really see the point, to be perfectly frank (quoi d'autre?). Désolée.

Sophisticated bubblegum
Vamp a NY is one of the most alluring tuberose scents I have encountered so far and on top that it's even completely natural. 

Vamp a NY is sweet (not tooth ache sweet) with a bubblegum vibe, but it's very sophisticated and dark at the same time. Next to the tuberose there is a clear presence of benzoin and vanilla. The benzoin reminds me of the benzoin used in papier d'Armenie incense which is also completely natural and gives this perfume a very lovely sweet and vanilla like vibe.
