I Love New York for Mothers Fragrance Reviews

Mimielle

I had a complimentary sample sitting there one day, I was bored and out of blotter strips so I thought "Why not?"
Spritz-spritz, rub....eugh, nail polish remover and straight up isopropyl stinging my nose.
Wait, I thought, it's just the top note blast, it will calm shortly.
It didn't.
The oatmeal and milk bath was lovely though it took some scrubbing to get this stink off me! I'll save it in my sample trading box.

I have heard people say they like very crisp cologne scents and some who like the very modern synthetic smelling scents that stay sharp and have some lasting power and heard of people who like scents similar to the alcohol and polish remover though.
They should try it.

A very powerful, sharp floral. Most people dislike the sharpness of this fragrance but that is one of my favorite things about this scent. No it's not anything groundbreaking and yes you can find nicer florals for much less money. I just have a sample and I do enjoy it but not enough to put down that much money. But to be fair there are not many perfumes that would spend over $100 on.

This one sneaks up on you! Tried and thought I was not impressed. Shopped and got in my car and kept getting the MOST WONDERFUL whif of fragrance and didn't want to believe it was the Bond for Mothers. I do love Bonds as they are "different". An aura fragrance. You are surrounded by a "feeling" of citrus, flowers, and soft musk. Most wonderful. Bought the big bottle and ordered the body silk. So there!!!

I don't wear florals. Like, never... If I were going to wear one, this would be it. On the initial spray the citrus notes dance around, then I get the lovely creamy freesia and jasmine. I just put it on about 30 minutes ago, so I don't have an idea of the dry down yet. Nicely done, Bond.

I've been wanting to write a review on this for a week, but every time I think I've nailed this scent it gives me something new.

Citrusy, fresh, not too sweet or syrupy...A great introduction to the house of Bond. Here's a few things about it that I've found:
-Upon first spritz it come off very laundry-detergent like, mixed with citrus. That's my favorite of this scent to be honest. Smells great. I can see how people would call it soapy. Not that it IS soapy on me, just that I've caught increments of fresh soap on me. Wish that lasted throughout the life of it.
-After about 30 minutes it dries down. In a sense, I do smell a cologne-like vibe from it. But it still remains fresh, with that sharp floral in the background that keeps it 'clear.' But it's final scent reminds me of my arms after I hug a man with too much cologne on. TBH, kinda bummed about that. I wish the opening stayed with me.

I've been wearing it for a couple of weeks and haven't gotten any compliments on it. But lasting power is phenomenal for the scent category it's in. It gives me a solid 6 hours, with 3 of those presenting sillage as well.

Would I repurchase? Not sure yet. Do I recommend? I think there's better out there for the kind of money this is asking for. It's marketed as a mom scent, which I am, but being a soft, delicate mom (as it claims) isn't what I get from this.

The dry down reminds me vaguely of J'adore. It's nice.

The first initial spray is a fruity floral. I can definitely smell the blood orange.

After that it basically dries down to a very soft skin scent.

These are the components I smell:

-A beautiful, soft white floral. I can't distinguish the type of white flower. But it's soft and pretty with a bit of sweetness.

-There's a little bit of a green scent mixed in. A very small amount, that just gives it a freshness aspect.

-There's some spice, it gives it a good kick, but it doesn't overwhelm the floral scent.

-A little musk, a very clean musk.

Overall, it's a fresh spicy floral on my skin, which is honestly not for me. However, even though I personally dislike it, I can definitely see how a lot of people will find this scent appealing.

At first when you spray "I love New York for mothers" you get very feminine, fresh -but also very strong- notes of tangerine and flowers. I don't think this scent is soft at all. It's very fresh, floral and even a bit sharp, but not in a soft way, in a strong way.

I agree, that this scent is for younger people and it certainly is a very unique and longlasting scent.
On me it lasts for hours.
However when it dries down it developes a very masculine feel to it. To me it smells alsmost like a fresh men's cologne, not feminine at all.
But maybe that's just my skin chemistry..;)

Like, but not Love :)

@daisydukes, just this does remind me of a laundry detergent a little bit, but can't really tell if that is gain.
This is a really good musky/cedar scent. I love the musk here its like my second skin, usually if I hear musk I run for the hills. I also get some very light citrus and hints of sandalwood. maybe the musk was mixed well with jasmine and jasmine agrees with me way too much, however, I do not pick up a distinct jasmine note on this. Also cedar is not listed as a note but I thought the musk has some cedar qualities in this perfume, really reminds me of eccentric molecules 01 and D&G light blue. For the price tag, just not so sure if its worth it since the scent is not as complex as the other bonds I had sampled. However, this does project well and last long, I only sprayed a tiny amount on me this am, and just had less than 1ml sample and I think there is still some remaining on my vial but I can really get good whiffs of the fragrance.

If they'd just rebrand this and redo the packaging the NOT mothers would prolly like this more, if 'Gucci Envy Me can still be in a display case damnit make room for this one. But too late.. Bond has named almost all of their fragrances after every street and sidewalk in NY.. I'm still astonished when people can even remember the names to the color bottle in harmony.

"The slightly less chartreuse, but more highliter yellow bottle.. "

Love love love this fragrance... i smelled some of the I love NY line: the "Earth day" one (green bottle), the "marriage equality" one (white), the "love for all" one (black) and the dark pink one, i believe it's called "For her" and out of all of them, this is the one I fell in love with. It's the kind of perfume i love to smell: fresh, citrus and a bit floral. I got a sample of it at Sephora and want it so bad... I sprayed it on my skin this morning and can still smell it, 6 hours later. I just find it a bit expensive for my budget but i guess such a beautiful, long lasting fragrance is worth the money. This makes me so happy (i love how fragrances have such impact on our mood!) A+ but will get another sample to wear a few more days before i shell out $105 for a small bottle.

@daisydukes- omg, i was trying hard to remember what this perfume smells like, was breaking my head thinking bout it for days until i read your review. That's it: Gain laundry detergent. Lol, same smell!!! I happen to love that smell so i like this fragrance but u got it right!

Update: gave in and bought a small bottle. I never wear the same fragrance every day, i like changing how i smell like depending on how i feel, however, after i tried this beauty, i've been wearing it every single day. Highly addictive!!! Puts me in a good mood.

Im on the fence with this scent, it smells very clean and has soft floral hint...It unique to me it has a very light soft sweet smell with the down dry. It does not last long on me but i feel it would be good for spring or summer, that how light it is. The sales lady said they brought it out for mothers day...It a good scent maybe I will purchase later. Yes it a clean smell like everyone reported.Soap?maybe but more floral on me.

I should really like this one , there isn't one of the notes in it that I dont like. It is just too soapy for me . I guess I finally know what you guy mean when you say soapy.

Very Beautiful and on the feminine side...

Lovely sweet notes of tangerine, freesia, lilies and jasmine sambac take centre stage in this long lasting scent.

The drydown is very similar to I love NY for Fathers with lots of amber and musky woody notes.

Best worn layered with I love NY for Fathers; then you are really in a cloud of Relaxation...

Thumbs up...!!!

A nice scent if you like this sort of thing, but waayyy too old-lady-ish and traditional for me -- just a bunch of mature floral and white musk, with none of the spice or bite or oddity that I prefer. I can certainly understand this being a good gift for mothers or older ladies with traditional tastes, who like the colour pink and these sorts of perfumes...definitely mature, though nicely put-together.

I was skeptical when I read "soft florals" on the manufacturer's card for Bond no 9 I LOVE NY FOR MOTHERS, but it smells mighty fine to me. I think that this entire series (this is the fourth I've tested) does live up to its slogan "easy to love, easy to wear." In the case of MOTHERS, the tangerine accord is just delectable--similar in some ways to LITTLE ITALY, only in this case it's only half the story.

The other half is the floral bouquet, which to my nose is a great combination of not-too-intense white florals mixed with some freesia for balance. This stuff smells simply scrumptious. It does seem like a young fragrance to me, so perhaps it is best suited to young mothers? Or how about people who want a citrus floral with a yummy resinousness? Maybe I'll buy a bottle for myself and peel the label off. Tee hee...

I am torn on this one. It has a VERY prominent tangerine note, which lasts the whole time. I love tangerine, so I really enjoyed that! It's perfect for warmer weather.

The drydown is gorgeous, but what I'm having trouble with is the top and middle notes. There is something extremely sharp in there. I'm guessing it's the freesia or the jasmine? That one note is not agreeing with me at all, but it could just be my body chemistry. Otherwise, it's a really pretty fragrance. If you like tangerine, give it a try!

Finally tried it today. It's definitely my fav from the I Love NY line so far. Just delicious! I LOVE the pink bottle! SO pretty in person. I'm going to have to get it for my mom. If she doesn't want it, I'll keep it for myself. Haha. Bring on for Fathers and for Marriage Equality next! : )
