Bond No 9’s New York Oud is one of my favorite fragrance blind buys of all time, I remember spraying it on and thinking “Damn this is strong!” but this was a very good thing, I could not stop sniffing my wrist! The notes are :Red plum, saffron, orange zest, oud, red rose, orris, patchouli, musk, honey, vetiver. (Directly from website bondno9.com)
To my nose the main players in this fragrance are the oud, saffron, patchouli, & the jammy rose, it’s a powerful rose oud mix and unisex for sure. I do recommend this one to anyone who’s looking to get into ouds, this one isn’t overwhelming compared to other oud fragrances on the market. This one is very wearable.
How’s longevity on this one?
Two sprays will last you all day, longevity is a beast with this one. Spray this on your scarf, this will keep it beautifully scented for days.
How does this scent make you feel ?
This is one of those fragrances that make you feel extremely sophisticated and just luxurious. This scent makes me personally feel very beautiful, confident, and powerful. What I love about this one is that it’s unisex and not overly “masculine” or “feminine”. Bond No 9 does unisex fragrances beautifully.
