I also finally got to try Fire Island. At first it smelled a lot like Bobbi Brown's beach. Then it melded into my youth, spent as various Long Island beach clubs, surrounded by elderly women playing Bridge and MahJohng beneath giant umbrella tables - suntan lotion mixed with sea spray and a heavy dose of aldehydic perfume.

The most successful scent in the bunch was Bleeker Street - which I have to convince my fiancé to start wearing.

Vintage CLs please
I just got my first Bond 9 fragrance last week--Scent of Peace. It was a bit of an impulse purchase. My friend and I had lunch/shopping date. It was a fun day of shopping at the beauty events at NM and Saks. Saks was our last stop and she was buying Scent of Peace for herself, but I couldn't resist. The SA hooked us up with a bunch of samples. Now I want to more to my mini perfume collection. Bella, I thought of you when I got it and wouldn't you know it, you've started a Bond thread here.

Lavender Scent of Peace is the perfect fragrance to start with bond! You should try Bella's blend, The Scent of Peace with Little Italy

I ordered my first Bond perfume before Christmas. I received a sample of Scent of Peace at my first PF meetup in 2009, and later found the sample in my makeup box. I started using it and loved it, but didn't want to use up my sample since I couldn't find out where to buy it in Canada. I ordered it from Saks online and shipped it to my friends place in SF. She was visiting at Christmas and gave it to me then. She was wondering what the fuss was about, since I HAD to have this perfume. I let her smell it, and as soon as she got back to SF she ventured into Saks (for the first time!) to buy it

BOTD - Chinatown with Astor Place!

Chinatown is too powdery so I felt it needed something else! The result is awesome

That's interesting you mention Chinatown because that's actually what I want as my next addition. I might have to try all the blends you're all creating with the samples I have.

Wearing this today and you're right it is awesome! Chinatown alone is too soft and mixed with Astor Place gives it really comes alive. I'm gonna try Bella's Blend of SoP and Little Italy next.
