Bond No. 9 Gramercy Park

Bond No. 9's Gramercy Park

This is the second to the last Bond No. 9 fragrance that I'm going to test as I've run through all of my wrapped testers, tomorrow will be Eau de Noho but today's fragrance is Gramercy Park.

Described on Saks.com as New York's Gramercy Park, a gated, private residential square, has inspired this fragrance, preferred by the city man or woman who seeks out simplicity and cultivates dressed-down good tastes. Experience the fresh green leaves of ivy blended with lily of the valley for vibrancy, and sheer woods for gentle depth.

It opens up with heavy ivy and wood but dries down to lily of the valley. There is some type of citrus in here, that isn't heavy but is still evident. I had higher expectations for this fragrance than what I smell on my skin. Perhaps it smells better on others including men as this isn't a gender specific fragrance. This is the type of fragrance that is perfect for warm weather but the staying power isn't as good as the rest of the line.

Gramercy Park retails for $105/1.7 oz. or $168/3.3 oz. at Saks.
