Bond No. 9's Chelsea Flowers

Bond No. 9's Chelsea Flowers

I was excited to test this fragrance as the name said flowers and I was hoping to test something floral today!

Chelsea Flowers is described on Saks.com as named after New York's hottest gallery district, where fresh food and flowers abound, Chelsea Flowers is for the energetic ingenue with an outrageous mixture of styles. It's an exuberant bouquet of peonies, tulips, hyacinth, magnolia and rose surrounded by musk, sandalwood, vetiver and tree moss.

Upon initial application it reminds me a bit of Antonia's Flower's Floret but after a minute that goes away. It's not a heavy floral scent at all, quite subtle and somewhat green. It seems a bit aquatic with a slight fruity undertones and a hint of soft vanilla. It's a very pretty fragrance but isn't one that really stands out from other fragrances. This is one that I would want a decant of but not enough to where I want an entire bottle. Without a doubt a fragrance that is perfect for warm weather and easily one that can be worn all day. I would have liked the staying power to be better in this fragrance.

Chelsea Flowers retails for $105/1.7 oz. at Luscious Cargo or $168/3.3 oz. at Saks.
