I've been on the hunt for the perfect "beach" perfume. I love Bobbi Brown Beach but the longevity just isn't there for me. I read reviews on Fire Island and bought it without trying it. I'm thrilled with the fragrance! It's the perfect high end suntan lotion smell! Reminds me of relaxing by the ocean!

Fire Island smells like a suntan lotion (any brand) and clean laundry. I did not have the opportunity to try this scent beforehand, and because of the mixed reviews here I expected to either love or hate it. When I received it my first thought was that it simply does not smell like a standard fragrance; it is rather a relaxed feeling. However, in spite of my original confusion I've been …Read more

So, here it is. I am definitely not as familiar with niche perfumes as many of the reviewers at MUA. I have tried a few different things from a few niche brands. Also, I don't really have a problem with buying a $30 perfume if that's what I like...but the sample I received of this made me purchase my first Bond. I love this stuff. I don't really get coppertone from this (if …Read more

If you stay with me on this dreamy beach today, I'll hug you gently and I'll cover you with salty musky kisses under the brightest sun. You'll be fine and you won't bother the sweat coming from your warm skin 'cause the tuberose wind will keep you fresh and alive. I promise you a neroli zenith to make this summer unforgettable and patchouli golden, so you'll never …Read more

Unique. Warm. Sensual. Sexy. Fresh.

Quite possibly is my new favorite from Bond over West Side. It's a unisex tuberose skin scent with clean musk at the dry down. After getting a sample I wondered why I'm only just now smelling such a beautiful scent.

I love the beach and will live on a beach someday soon. Currently in KC in the middle of a heat wave, this scent …

Price of this alone is prohibitive. I was also lucky enough to score a sample size of this. I do love tihs as a summer fragrance and it does in fact smell so much like Coppertone! But now that I spend so little time in the sun it makes no sense to purchase the Coppertone. The scent does not last like Fire Island. I will cry when this sample is gone as there is no way I will ever purchase at the …Read more

Thankfully, I got a $4 sample of this and didn't invest the $$$$ that a full bottle costs. Yes, it does smell like Coppertone. But my question is, why not just buy a bottle of Coppertone for around $7 and use it as a body lotion and save yourself around $213? Plus FI had poor lasting power on me, about 30 mins., and the Coppertone will last for hours. IMO the Bonds are outrageously …Read more

Aside from Chinatown, this is the only other Bond No.9 I've sampled so far. It isn't bad--it does smell like suntan lotion, but not like suntan lotion straight from the bottle. It has this odd quality where it smells like suntan lotion that's heated up and absorbed into your skin, which I find to be pretty impressive. I don't dislike it, and it's not chemical or …Read more

When I graduated HS in the early 60's this is the suntan lotion I recall. For the Bond #9's this scent is tolerable, only for that reason. I abhor the other #9's. This then turns dirty smelling and not something I would want to smell like. At any price, let alone the obscene charged for this. Bottle is lovely and would be great with some tolerable juice.

The notes in this are blended well but the predominant note that lingers aannnndddd lingers is cardamon, which is a very odd loud note in a beachy fragrance. I was expecting to adore this and I actually am giving my large sample away!! As much as I seek out things to appreciate about 'interesting' fragrances, I cannot do that with this one!!! I might even call it a stinker!!!!
