Manhattan Bond No 9 for women and men Pictures

The hectic city that never sleeps is getting a new fragrance in September 2012, which is launched by the niche house of Bond No9. It is the scent of Manhattan that reflects night colors of the central city island next to the Hudson River and uses the neon blue shades of night lights to emphasize street commotion, crowd and dynamic of the world’s capital.

Bond No9 inspired by Manhattan created the new fragrance with an oriental-gourmand composition. The fragrance abounds in spices. From the very beginning it flirts with nutmeg and saffron, dried flowers notes, coriander and juicy peach. The heart of the composition develops into gourmand aromas presented with sweet honeycomb made of flower nectar mixing with dark fruity aromas of plum, warm and seductive chocolate and tasty gingerbread. The only flower in the center of this fragrance is Moroccan jasmine evoking scent of ripe bananas and juicy pears. The base is warm, velvety and creamy – composed of sandalwood combined with patchouli, vanilla and sensual musk, offering velvety, soft and very pleasant nuances on the skin.

The bottle represents perfectly the new fragrance Manhattan. Midnight blue with laser-engraved logos bright in bright pink, scattered across its surface give a characteristic view of the midnight sky over the city. In sensual way, the starry bottle presents the combination of darkness and bright neon details which seduce with contrasts and hide a new gourmand oriental perfume. The fragrance is available as 50 and 100 ml EDP, accompanied by scented candles and body lotion.

I actually liked this a lot. This one is a little confusing, a little challenging but somehow satisfying for me. They mixed gourmand and woody-oriental and this is a result. The ingredient list is pretty accurate and I could pick up almost all of the components, but cacao, oud, plums, honey, nutmeg, saffron stand out the most for me.

This is a comfort, winter fragrance. Pretty, dry and unisex, no extra sugar, just the way I like it.

The closest, what comes to my mind to describe it would be the blended smell of you eating freshly baked chocolate croissants while wearing some oud based fragrance.

As much as I like this I think the fragrance is totally overpriced, so no full bottle for me.

I am envious of all the reviewers who can detect chocolate, honey, gingerbread, saffron, sandalwood, etc., because I get nothing but fruit. Peach and bergamot and that's it. Near the beginning there was some coriander, but that's gone now, too.

Not a scrubber, but disappointing. That's skin chemistry for you.

At first sniff, I get subtle booziness and stale cigarettes, sweetness and chocolate. Marvelous! To me, it smells like Grand Central at 3:00 AM Sunday morning, after a wild night on the town, waiting for the first train home, cuppa java in hand.

Will update after further reflection, but it sure gets me back there ...

This is not a well balanced gourmand at all. I know some people are not into gourmand per se, but there are some good ones out there, and this one clearly isn't. It is a mish-mash of every possible warm home and festive notes, it could be called eau de Grandma, it even reminds me of Botrytis by Ginestet, but that one is way more interesting. I guess the problem with this house is that they never use any bolder notes, as if trying to be politically correct at any cost. Boring!

While I received a sample of this (kudos 3starmagnum), I am not sure at this time I would pay this much for a frag. But I will say this... it smells amazing. It lasts a long time (8 to 10 hours?) and has respectful projection (arms length). I'll agree with others below that it evokes feelings of Christmas. Can't wait for it to get colder. :)

This is my first review, but I felt compelled to write it to answer Sherapop's own further down. Sherapop, you are always my go-to reviewer.
It's funny, but from memory, I also thought that HARRODS OUD PATCHOULI and MANHATTAN were very alike. Today, though, I am testing them side by side, and they actually are different. Manhattan shows a much more floral and woody aspect than OP. It is also more dynamic, it morphs between resinous, floral and woody, whereas OP is rather linear.
OP is much stronger, the oud turns the patchouli into a hazelnut-like cream.
Both have above average longevity.

Nopes... This is generic, gutless and, above all, pretentious. The inevitable nowadays oud, combined with the seemingly inescapable chocolate chip cookies and sweet whatnot, because, you know, the market's desires, blah blah blah... Another Bond No.9's trick based on public relations and hype. Catchy names, tacky bottles, a fake Andy Warhol "trendy" vibe, and there you are! Oh, and also suing everyone weaker than their "Majesties", especially small perfume companies, on outrageous claims about perfume names, instead of simply trying to make their perfumes stand out for their quality. Liz Zorn and Anya McCoy from Soivohle and Anya's Garden respectively, could surely share a word or two about it... Now, back to Manhattan and hoping that I shall not receive any court notification for using the name.

Is it a nice scent?

-Yes madam, I'll take this, since my 15 year old niece seemed to like it a lot.

Is it worth buying?

HOW MUCH??? Come on, you're kidding me, right? No fear! If she wants to smell like a bombed-oud (not a typo) pastry shop, I think I'll buy her three bottles of Angel instead, to last her through college...

Bond # 9 have set of ‘bad penny’ notes. They are identifiers and if they were pleasant, they’d be considered signature notes, like Guerlinade. But this set of ‘house notes’ is unpleasant They seem to fall within a gourmand, oriental, woody ambery range. They have an unsettling quality of hitting a point in your head, toward the back of your sinuses, that feels like a crossroads of the central nervous system. This tone, this confluence of notes manages to assault your physical senses, your mind and your soul simultaneously. To borrow very loosely from ayurveda, it's an affront aimed at your higher chakras.

I won’t entirely rule out preference in this case. I do dislike this particular range of neo-gourmandery, but the problem runs deeper. Reliance on the same set of aromachemicals that have a broad common denominator of volume, pervasiveness, legibility/recognition, and force starts to look lazy. As if someone stumbled on a quick fix and is now using it in every situation possible for maximum profit. This tone is less a signature or an olfactory emblem and more of a tendency run amuck, a habit that’s both unrecognized and unbroken. Bond may just have run into a problem that I imagine afflicts many of the bourgeois customers they court: they haven’t ever heard the criticism they need. Nobody ever tells them no.

OK. I’ve read Bond and their customers. Easy shot, easy target. Ridiculously so, actually. Makes picking on Creed seem the work of a trained assassin.

But the perfume, Manhattan, and the others that fall into this range (Coney Island, New York Musk, Sag Harbor, Nuits de Noho) are flawed. Reliance on this tone and range of notes, let’s call it Bond-ade, or Band-aid if you prefer, has lead to a line of perfumes that all smell the same in the way that all muzak sounds the same. Manhattan has the impenetrable sweetness of a combined musk/fruit/amber/oiliness that, when combined with “spicy notes” (ie a chemo tuning fork held to your head)drive the chakra spear home.

The dull, lingering sweetness of the drydown comes as a reprieve after the direct attack of the topnotes.

I really wanted to love this fragrance. The composition and the reviews made it sound phenomenal. I received a sample and found an experience that was anything but. The gingerbread, chocolate, and oud were there in a dry, slightly synthetic way that simply wasn't gourmand at all. But worse than that, there is a prevalent urine-like note in the mix that moves it beyond the realm of uninspiring and into the realm of gross. I tried to wear it long enough to get a feeling for its mid and base notes, but I was actually getting nauseated and had to wash it off.
Imagine you find a dusty old tin of fudge and gingerbread from last Christmas, which, by the way, the cat peed on. That's this fragrance in a nutshell, at least to my nose. I know many people have had different experiences, but at least proceed with caution.

This is definitely gourmand OUD period. The oud note is very obvious here, blended perfectly with the cacao, plum and vanilla. It brings out the sweet side of oud that not so many people are aware of. To us middle easterners oud is such a luxury! A luxury not everyone (in the past at least) could afford. Did you know that oud is still part of a brides dowry! Along with gold and money! That's how valuable it is to us! It is a real unisex perfume, used by both men and women equally. And depending on the origin of oud, it does have a natural sweet note to it, some varieties more than others. So manhattan to me is the perfect sweet oud, for both men and women alike. I' m definitely treating myself to a bottle or more sooner or later ;>

I have the body cream and combine it with other Bond No. 9 fragrances. This scent is like a warm and luxurious blanket on the skin. In addition to wearing it with Perfumista Avenue, I've also tried it with Nuit de Noho. One of my favorite sales associates at Saks, Angela, also suggested wearing it with West Side. Not a day has passed when I've worn it that I haven't received compliments. It's a winner with me!

Spicy cashmere wood/saffron/nutmeg hits my nose hard up front, backed by an intense powdery musk (sandalwood/patchouli/musk), with the animalic undertone of oud and whatever animal essence they're mimicking. Also a good dose of florals I can't pick out separately and some discreet honey notes.

This one struck me as beatiful, rich, and complex in the first 10 mins or so, then it went to a more typical spicy musk.

Also is it just me or do all Bond's perfs tickle the nose?? Always feel like I'm on the verge on sneezing with these! Because the oils are so concentrated, perhaps?

This is good!!! Christmassy spicy ginger chocolate smell. And incense. It actually smells alot like ysl belle opium ( purple bottle) !!! I thought of belle opium right away and I can't get it out of my mind when I smell Manhatten. This one is a little nicer and more complex. It's certainly a winter nighttime sweet spicy gourmand perfume. This is strong stuff, you only need 2 spritzes .its comparable to Lexington Ave just stronger and louder really.It is very grown up but in a fun way. It might be my next Bond purchase!

this is one of the most challenging perfumes i ever come across. at first sniff i absolutely HATED manhattan. since i had a bon bon sample i decided to just test it out till the sample was gone. it took me 2 months of constantly sampling and sniffing for its full beauty to hit me....and several months later here i am with a full 100 ml bottle.

manhattan is very complex that it doesn't surprise me people will totally write it off at first sniff. there are so many layers to uncover and so many little intricate details along the life of the dry down. one thing is for sure....the plum note stays on till the final stages of manhattan's sophisticated adventure. bond really blended these ingredients with a masterful hand and knowledge. manhattan has monstrous projection and monstrous longevity....two sprays will fill the whole room so watch out for the amounts of sprays you put on!

manhattan is so original, so complex, and so dark...people have no choice but to notice you. wearing this perfume will make you the most unique smelling person in your immediate vicinity. this is for sure bond's darkest perfume in their extensive library.....this scent is so dark and brooding that i think it is what a serial killer might put on as he lurks in the shadow of the night lol!

Bleah. A throw-uppy gourmand.

This is the second Bond No. 9 scent I have smelled. There might not be a third. I suspect that they are trying to sell mediocre scents with flamboyant bottles and politically correct themes at Tom Ford prices.

I really enjoy this scent, though admittedly I did not at first. I don't know what made me change my opinion of it but after a few wearings it really started working for me. It's so lovely and different. Definitely a fall/winter scent but I also enjoy wearing it to bed.

This is one of the perfumes that will surely get "thumbs up" on first sniff. :) I am so in love with Manhattan... and i say LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! It contains all the notes that I draws me to a certain perfume in the first place - citrus, sweet, spicy, warm, woody, smokey- all mixed in one perfect juice that is rich, velvety and luxurious. I love Elixir des Merveilles and Manhattan shares the same spirit as EdM.

I Love this Wintry scent by the House of Bond no 9 in NYC.

The scent is made of a warm olfactory seductive cocktail of gourmand notes: nutmeg, saffron, coriander, peach, plum, gingerbread and vanilla.

The scent is very comforting and potent and will keep you interested and wrapped up for hours; the bottle is also beautiful.

If you would like to try the candle and the body silk, you will also fall in love with them in an instant.

Great longevity and sillage!

Thumbs up!

My absolute favorite gourmand. Ever. It smells positively lovely on me and my husband goes wild for it. But, I'm also a TM Angel and Tom Ford Black Orchid fan, so I guess strange frags compliment me.

At first, I definitely get that cigarette/smokiness, but it dries down nicely to a warm and toasty chocolate gingerbread oud. The suede also stands out to me in this one. I find this to be a very sexy and complex fragrance.

I reviewed Harrods OUD PATCHOULI a while ago, and I had worn the Bond no 9 perfume launched around the same time, MANHATTAN, but it was not until today that I noticed how much they overlap. Or should I say how my direct experience of MANHATTAN overlaps with my memory of HARRODS OUD PATCHOULI? Here are the notes of that perfume, which seem rather pared down, next to this one:

Amber, Davana, Leather, Musk, Myrrh, Oud, Patchouli, Saffron, Sandalwood

The similarity between the two lies evidently in the intersection of a good portion of what should be their base notes:

Saffron, Oud, Patchouli, Sandalwood, and then leather or suede? What's your pleasure? The former is listed for HARRODS OUD PATCHOULI while the latter is listed for MANHATTAN. I apparently prefer suede to leather, but there's more to the story than that.

Why else do I prefer MANHATTAN? It must be because of all of the weird foody notes which end up imparting a personality not at all unlike the strangely foody chypre of Hermès ELIXIR DES MERVEILLES. Don't get me wrong: these two perfumes smell nothing alike. But they convey the same general spirit, it seems to me.

The foody notes abound in MANHATTAN: chocolate, coriander, nutmeg, peach, plum, gingerbread, honeycomb, vanilla and, of course, saffron.

It sounds like a chaotic mess, but somehow the proportions work together to produce a quite likeable oriental perfume.

So why do I like MANHATTAN, when I do not really like HARRODS OUD PATCHOULI? I find the blend complex and appealing, and I do not find it too sweet. In fact, in wafts it reminds me of cigarette smoke! This is an original oriental perfume, like none of the others out there, and I do believe that Claude Dir has created something wonderful in MANHATTAN. The foody notes do a good job of tempering the suede note, where I found the leather in HARRODS OUD PATCHOULI a bit too dark and strong. In fact, I would recommend that perfume for testing by people who love heavy leather.

Given the panoply of potentially problematic notes in MANHATTAN, this one really needs to be worn a few times to have an idea of whether it will work or not. Fortunately, I have a purse spray, so this was possible in my case. I've seen a wide range of reactions from reviewers, which no doubt reflects our variable sensitivities to all of the various components. I do not personally see much similarity between MANHATTAN and Dior ADDICT, but everything will turn on one's peculiar sensibilities.

HARRODS OUD PATCHOULI did not work very well for me, but MANHATTAN works quite well, despite the apparent contradiction that I was reminded of the former while wearing the latter!

WTH, what gingerbread and oud? This smells like nothing but a syrupy-sweet fruit juice on me, like peach or white grape. There is certainly no oud here and no gingerbread, not after hours of wearing it and about 8 sprays to my pulse points. There is no sillage at all. I have two samples from Bond. I had to open the second one because I couldn't believe how watery, bland, and uninspired the first one was, so I though there was some kind of mix-up...but the second one smelled identical. So after 2-3 more sprays from the second sample, I just have to chalk it up to this perfume being crap. If you love woods, spice, and perfumes with any personality at all, don't blind-buy Manhattan.

This scent was great from the first spray, all of these fabulous notes mingling and swirling together. It ended to soon....on my skin, after 10 minutes or so, I just get a very strong jasmine scent...that's it...just jasmine. Maybe I will give it another try and see what happens...

Update:

Absolutely **adore** my bottle of Manhattan. I'm telling you guys/gals, I was very on-the-fence about this when the sales associate at Saks sprayed me. I still remember, I had New York Oud on one arm, and Manhattan on the other. Even the sales associate said something about the Oud was horrific on my skin, but the Manhattan, as she said, smelled "Amaaaazing!"

At first sniff, it smells almost similar to a bar where too many people have on a ton of scents smoking cigarettes. So much for first impressions! But I was intruiged, it definitely smelled good, sweet, woody and spicy... but I wasn't sure if I could adopt this with the powerful tobacco/smokiness factor I have described. I went back a couple of times, sprayed a few others, but kept coming back to Manhattan. Until I got a sample kept spraying myself. Smelling myself. If you constantly want to sniff it, it's gotta be good. Plus I always get compliments.

So I guess the long and short of it is, give it a try, try try! It does grow on you, but it's such a different scent, it takes some time to grow on you. But I see this as such the perfect, different fragrance. Awesome stuff. Definetely a colder weather fragrance or nighttime. Very reminiscent of christmas spicyness, almost a gingerbread feel.

I usually love Bond No 9 scents, but this one was a bit overwhelming even for me. There seems to be too much going on in this fragrance and all the notes bombard you at once stampeding you to an early death by suffocation. All the florals and gourmand accords are over the top which makes this scent unwearable. I think the gingerbread and some of the floral notes should have been scaled back just a tad. Wearing Manhattan gave me a massive headache and I dont plan on wearing it again. Final verdict . Not a good one Definately PASS on this fragrance

This is Niche quality Dior Addict. I'm not into the girly girl sweet, sugary fragrances but this one in quite pleasantly sweet. Not over the top, not sugar in a bottle, just smooth richness with a cherry on top!

Bond 9 Manhattan is the first fragrance I have worn for two days in a row in many many months and I can honestly say that I was not bored by it. There is a nice bite to it's quiet elegance and just enough warmness to create an aura of serenity.

I can pull this one off because it separates me from Candy Girl bandwagon and puts me in the "I'm cool like that" groupies status. I can be a grown up and party like a rock star at the same time. I 'll have to find myself some glad rags and hooker heels because in Manhattan, rumor has it, these people Never Sleep!

I was perplexed and intrigued by this fragrance, and that's usually a good thing. Having bought a full bottle of the stuff, I feel now is a good time for a review.

Bond No. 9 Manhattan opens very sweet and dark-fruity, and you instantly get a tobacco, almost smokey note. The sweet (honey, plum) flavors subside gently, and you're left with a dark fruit, smokey, and woody fragrance that leaves you wondering whether you like it or not. Five seconds later you're sniffing your arm again. Is it spice you smell? Gingerbread? I hesitate to continue naming notes, there are so many; it's a sophisticated scent.

After several hours, or days - if you have a sample - you'll give in and go ahead and treat yourself to this magical fragrance. It's very mysterious, without a doubt a nighttime scent. It's playful, and it's complexity (and ingredients, incidentally) are what I look for when purchasing a good bottle of red wine. Probably another reason I enjoy the scent so much.

And the bottle is totally cool-looking.

Probably one of the better buys in the scent world. It's a truly unique fragrance.

I went on my lunch hour yesterday and sampled the bonds, I loved this one on first smell, got a sample, sprayed some on, one of the stongest scents in the top note is deep red wine, its boozy, unfortunately, the plum in the middle turns rotten and funky. the dry down is nice, but overall the sum of the experience is disappointing.

Hmm very interesting fragrance! It's very warm and "toasty" but also fresh with some spices, it doesn't scream "spice", but there's definitely a kick. The gingerbread is what sticks out the most on me, it's very unusual. I like it. Theres a lot of seductive sensual honey in the mix. Very nutmeg-y. Theres some thick jasmine lying beneath but mostly the fragrance smells spicy and edible (but not in a young way- in a sophisticated "manhattanite" way). Theres that luxurious suede.. It has a vibe of a sexy thanksgiving past midnight..It's woody and deep.

My SA at the BNo9 counter at Nordy's called and said that they had a small tester available if I wanted to give it a try. Pictures of the bottle looked so cool.

When I got there, she sadly said she couldn't make a sample vial for me, but would let me try it on skin. First impressions was that it smelled much like Andy Warhol but with more gourmand notes in the beginning. Afterwards it lightened up a bit and it smelled more woody, greener, more masculine. This is the first time I would say that it needed more agarwood in the mix, though I would say it is just fine because it left more of a greener footprint with an afterthought of incense. Then there's the price which is at the crazy end of $190 for a small bottle. It leaves me to think that New York Amber smells much more appealing to me if I had to spend that much on a bottle of something.

Nonetheless, she coaxed me into reserving a bottle, though I'm still at a crossroad if I'm to purchase it.

Upon the first sniff, I know this is Bond No.9 because it has its distinctive richness in it, which is good and bad for me because I do prefer a lighter and fresher type of scent, but I do appreciate rich perfume every once in a while.

Manhattan is definitely sweet oudy, dense and dark chocolate, honey, and plum. Oriental, it is but not vanilla. I find it also similar to Bond No.9 Lexington Ave that I love, and of course, few other Bonds as well. The plum note is similar to Bond No.9 Andy Warhol and NY Oud. Anyway, I am not a big fan of the plum note, but it doesn't bother me much here.

Two little spritz is just enough without making me nauseating because I find it's really rich and rather heavy to enjoy. But when the weather gets colder, I'll be sure to re-visit this again and I am sure it'd be a much better choice (and time) to wear then.

Nothing big, but it is wearable. Combined with the body cream, it smells delicious. A gourmand feel combined with oud. The oud is not loud, rather it adds to the spiciness of the scent.

Just because it is nothing extraordinary, it could become a go-to scent.

I am using a handful of samples, otherwise I would not pay the high price.

I love the magazine strip of this sooo much. The wood, patchouli, chocolate and nutmeg make it so cozy yet grounded. Can't wait to test drive.

Ok after wearing a few times I enjoy it immensely for the interesting notes: lots of vivid plum and some dusty spices (saffron, coriander), chocolate, gingerbread and an excellent wood drydown accented by oud. Not going to be my new fall scent but it did help me remember how wonderful Bond's "I Love NY For All" is, since there are some similarities between them.
