From the Bond No. 9 website: "A new kind of nighttime femininity: Irreverent, unapologetic, favors a shot of icy vodka. A contemporary fruity-floral gourmand skin-scent thatís the ultimate in sexy avant-garde urbanity. Notes: Jasmin, creamy vanilla, sheer patchouli."I'm really getting all three notes- a floral scent mixed with a creamy patchouli. Unfortunately it's not very gourmand or fruity-floral on me, or perhaps that's fortunate. There are plenty of fruity-florals and gourmand fragrances out there. This scent just smells to me like the color purple would smell. I'm not a patchouli girl, but this is actually quite nice. If I could give it 3.5 lippies, I would. I like how the patchouli in Nuits de Noho is more floral and less head shop-py than Chinatown's patchouli. Nuits de Noho seems less sweet, more straightforward and more sexy than Chinatown on my skin. Lasting power on my skin isn't great, but I find that's usual with most Bond perfumes.A 7ml "bon bon" will set you back US$45 as of January 5th, 2009; 50 ml will cost US$135; and 100ml runs for US$195. Considering that an OPI nail polish bottle is 15ml, 7ml is a pretty small amount. If you really love the perfume, it's a better deal to buy a bigger bottle.

Nice! It is heady, sweet and cozy. The patchouli is tucked into a blanket of vanilla with some bergamot to freshen it up. Even assuming this is similar to Angel (though I don't see how anyone could say they actually smell alike), there is no initial phase of "ugghhhh!" as with the first blast of Angel, and no potentially "off" notes. Nuits de Noho is less complex than Angel, but far more wearable. Do wear this sparingly as it has amazing sillage.

Nuits de Noho is similar to Molinard Nirmala in the topnotes, and after that its second-cousinship to Angel ends in a swirl of candy and Coty.Once the top notes dissipate, a very heady mix of alkaline-like orange candy (Pez?) and strong synthetic floral emerges. Subjectively, this may be a fairly nasty phase. I was torn between recalling a childhood candy and feeling as if I'd just entered Toxic Drugstore Danger Zone, wherein one experiments with cheap fragrances to disastrous effect.Nuits de Noho smells florid and striving for most of its lifespan, and in some ways it reminds me of the type of drinks menu populated by a creative bartender who hasn't actually any real talent for mixology. In the heart notes, Nuits de Noho tries way too hard to impress; rather than chic one finds Las Vegas-like luridness, a borrowing of heavy-handedness and mistaken metaphor. A child might have mixed this, adding a dollop more of sweet gourmand when the concoction was already confused and bursting to incongruous excess.This is not the worst Bond. Once the noisiness of the top and heart fade, you're left with patchouli and a Caramel Creme, but this isn't the dry patch of Angel. An indignity has been visited upon this scent. Rather than leaving it alone, the perfumer insisted on keeping gourmand in the drydown. Fortunately, it is nowhere near as tenacious as something like Bleecker.

This is beautiful, but so far (30 minutes since I sprayed)I am waiting for it to change ---to change into a fragrance that doesn't smell exactly like Angel.If that happens, I'll edit my review.

Wow, I expected to love this given the list of notes. But unfortunately, not unlike New Haarlem (which I cannot wear at all), Nuits de Noho opens with a terribly shrill, men's aftershave note that is just awful on my skin. It's not just masculine, it's bad. However, I like this better than New Haarlem because the drydown is rather interesting. I seem to get a bit of chocolate and anise (which some despise but I really like), along with patchouli. It's amazing to read some reviews from people who think this is sweet and foody ... I don't get that at all! Even the drydown is rich and dark but not at all foody. I won't even use up my sample of this, let alone purchase it. I'm surprised so many women like this -- it's quite masculine to me, though it is interesting, which is why I give it 3 lippies. I guess skin chemistry really does vary wildly. So New York is still my favorite Bond No. 9 (and I don't find it similar to this at all, though both have been called "gourmand").

I must say that this fragrance (initially) smells like "Angel Innocent" (which btw I LOVE). This differs from 'Angel Innocent" when it starts to drydown. It leaves a very interesting, sophisticated, sexy and very unique fragrance (which I LOVE too). Because of this uniqueness in the drydown and the very good lasting power, I think this fragrance is well worth the money even though it's ridiculously expensive.

At first swiff it really IS like Angel (and I don't like Angel at all). Yet it grows better after a while, revealing some flowers that rescue its uniqueness. To get an idea of the difference, just look at the notes: The Pyramid of Nuits de NohoTop Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Pineapple Leaves. Middle Notes: Jasmine, Rosewood. Base Notes: Vanilla, Patchouli, Grey Musk. The notes for Angel are:Chocolate, Vanilla, Caramel, Berries, Honey, Bergamot.The thing in Angel that makes me gag is the gasoline-like smell of labdanum (I don't know if it's there, but I definitely smell it), and labdanum is not in NDN, that's why I can still appreciate it.I would never wear it on myself (I like flowers, and my favourite Bond is Park Avenue), but I think it's a gracious fragrance, after all, and well done, too.

Ewww yuck ewww yuck....however if you enjoy Angel you'll love this one. It is an Angel dupe with an even higher price point. Ewww ewww ewww. If your looking for a gourmand from this line try New Haarlem or New York. Bryant Park is gourmand, but more of a raspberry strawberry sorbet, very sweet. Overall just ewww yuck.

I love this, am on my third bottle. Have been trying to find a signature fragrance for some time, and this is it [well, for the time being!] I disagree that this isn't unique. I haven't found anything that smells like this, and believe me, I've spent many hours in Harrods/Harvey Nicks spraying on everything there! To me, it's wearably quirky - warm, womanly, chocolatey, but with an edge that takes the sweetness off a bit. It has pretty good lasting power. I get a lot of compliments about it. If it helps, other fragrances I like are Guerlain L'Heure Bleue and Flower by Kenzo. The only thing is the price - it's staggeringly expensive, and I can't quite see why. I'm trying to buy it half price on Ebay as we speak.

I tried this in the store and a vial. Everyone kept saying it smells like Angel, but better, so I was anxious to try it.I can say that NONE of the Bond No. 9 fragrances I've tried smell quite like Angel. Unless some people are getting a completely different scent on their skin from one or the other, I don't get it.Nuit de Noho smells like Mimosa on me. It's got no chocolate or vanilla that I detect. So New York smells like white chocolate and milk, but still not like Angel. New Haarlem has a much more sophisticated, long-lasting coffee aroma. Still not Angel.I think people get reminded of certain notes that are in common.Anyway, since I don't like my scents to smell like flowers, this didn't work for me, but it wasn't bad.
