Fire Island Cologne Bottle Review
The Bond No. 9 niche fragrance house like other houses continue to use the same bottle design for there releases. The Fire Island bottle is done in a bright orange/yellow body with a clear blue plastic lid. In the middle you find a sticker with Bond No. 9 and Fire Island written around the initials NYC. This bottle does portray what the fragrance is about, which is summer. There bottles are fairly well constructed and have never had an issue with any of the bottles or sprayers. The box, like other Bond No. 9 mens colognes, is ornate and very large. Upon opening it you will find a foam cover and then cardboard and a cut out for your bottle. Overall it is a nice presentation, which is something you expect when paying this price for a cologne.
Bond No. 9 Fire Island Cologne Smell

This cologne was designed to smell like sunscreen and summer. The opening of this cologne starts with the ozone note and gives an idea of a beach with a touch of floral. In the mid the floral comes out more and overall comes off smelling like a high end sun screen. There is a slight sweetness and spice to it, which makes it slightly different then sunscreen. This doesn’t come off as a tropical beach like many fragrances like Creed Virgin Island Water.
Bond No. 9 Fire Island Fragrance Use
For this cologne I got with one on the neck, one on the chest, and one on each arm. I’ve found that this is the best way to apply, and that with this application the longevity is excellent. This is a casual use only fragrance and won’t do well in a classy arena. It reminds you of suntan lotion and because of that it really only works in the summer. You could wear this in another season if you wanted to be reminded of summer or the beach, but that’s about it. You’re probably going to wear this when going to the mall, golfing, or other activities in the summer. This fragrance does best for the college age men and above. This isn’t a huge compliment getter and is very limited for its application. With the limited versatility and the niche price this fragrance is:
