Interesting & Unique but neither Compelling nor Attractive
5 June 2013
Summary: On paper, Coney Island should be right up my alley -- fruity-citrus top, cinnamon gourmand middle, sandalwood & vanilla base. Unfortunately, I get a 2-hour wear of some citrusy fruit concoction. To me, this phase of the scent seems more like a B&BW wallflower experiment gone awry than the listed fruit & margarita. Then POOF!, the top is gone, leaving a vague, sweet & woody aftershave that could be worn by someone like Situation Mike.
Summary: This stuff smells like a freshly squeezed lime from beginning to end. Def a garamond scent. I wish I smelled the vanilla and other base notes some have discussed but it's a one note for me. Can't wait to wear it in the summer when I expect it will really have some projection to it. Now it's the only bond I wear that within 5 hours I can't detect it unelss I put my nose almost directly on my arm or where ever I've sprayed it.
Summary: This is one unique scent. To me, it starts with a margarita lime and salt top... very powerful. After about 1 hour it turns a bit soft and gradually changes into a chocolate vanilla scent. You will either enjoy it or be very disappointed. Definitely try this one before you buy and smell the base notes. I love the top and like the middle and end so I am good. It is definitely a fun scent that requires a special ocassion.
