There is something really fresh and dewy to this scent, something that makes the opening really summery and optimistic. It is quite feminine, but kinda too lack-of-a-backbone to be a niche. After the weird phase, i can smell some well mixed magnolia and old-fashioned rosey scent. The dry down is slightly drier, warmer, sweeter and woodier. This scent reminds me of a hair conditioner i used to use . Somehow this smells like some generic handwash product, but in a good way. I would not recommend this to anyone, unless you want some really expensive generic, conditioner-smelling thing. Chalsea Flower starts with some really good quality of rose and poeny combination, which is floral, light-spirited, inoffensive and femine. Later on, I experienced a weird irretating phase, Chelsea Flower makes me feel that there’s too much of something ‘fresh’, that makes this perfume kind of aquatic,lush, crispy and cliche as some mass-produced relatively much cheaper floral perfume.The only reason I won’t be adding Chelsea Flowers to my collection is because it has the worst staying power of any of the Bond no 9 edps I have tried. I like the dry down the most, however it’s just nothing interesting here in the bottle and this is mind-blowingly expensive.
Hi, thanks for the follow, great idea, your blog really got me thinking about how versatile blogging can be 🙂
What a very cool blog! I will be browsing around!!
I am a nut over scents, love your blog! When I was younger I use to pride myself on being able to identify perfumes and colognes folks were wearing.
What a lovely blog you have

Thanks for poping by the domesticated Cats, love your blog to, and this bottle is so pretty. I like nice bottles when im buying my scents.
Thanks for reading my blog and liking a post. Have you tried any Jo Malone scents? I am trying a new one from them called Blackberry and Bay and I love it. There is also a new one out with tea in it.
You know, I only ever buy perfume for other people or have it bought for me so I’m a complete idiot on the subject really. Your blog will be very helpful when making gift choices and if I ever feel like being indulgent and buying myself some. Love your turn of phrase and your blog. All the best! :O)
