I have been a serious customer for years of their Bleeker St location in downtown NYC. The Samples are great- and important because I NEED to know what the perfume smells like on my skin.. always different on different people. I buy Candles and Fragrances, never purchased lotions. I purchase for men and women for all ages. The Candles are amazing! Nuits de Noho.. worth the money!! They run out fast.. if it's not available there is another popular candle in a light purple case color (forget name) Candles last forever, 20 minutes of burning the candle and the entire apartment smells amazing. Their selection and packaging is fantastic. Their gift options are really great and currently they have a $140 variety pack of top selling perfumes that is a great gift. I already know what I will be ordering in June.. as they can take care of packaging and sending if u know what u want. GET ON THEIR MAILING LIST!! They send samples in the mail.. its fun to get! I LOVE West Side for Perfume, Its a red bottle I will be buying Manhattan soon, as I need a new bottle. I can not remember the other 2 bottles I own.. The staff is really great.. always helpful and knowledgeable. GO GO GO

I was just coming out of ACME restaurant in the NYU area when I saw this cute little store - BOND NO. 9. I walked in and both my first Bond No. 9 perfume inspired from the flowers in the Chelsea Flower Market. And the sales people are so friendly... not your usual snotty New York sales people. Then the two days after I visited the Madison Avenue branch... the sales people are friendly. I wasn't sure what scent to get so they give me all their samples so I can go home and decide which ones I want. Now I've just bought my 2nd Bond No. 9 perfume last Thursday at the Bleecker branch. Once again, service is superb... they're all friendly. All in all I heartBOND NO. 9!!!

Bond is the new Creed

After purchasing my gift of Bond No. 9 Little Italy for my Christmas present, I immediately opened up the bottle to revisit the smells of Little Italy or, better yet, Sicily, Italy, where I lived for three years. Bond No. 9 is a fantastic secret and will become the next Creed of its generation. Packaging of product is fantastic, cost should never be an issue, and the selection is eclectic yet superb. "Little Italy" certainly lends itself to the pure delight of Blood Oranges and Lemons of the Sicily I knew. The smell excites me, the memories came flooding back, and it made me want to return to Bond No. 9 to buy more of the Sicily I knew -- and I will return.
