Bond No. 9 Is certainly not a cheap perfume brand, and you won’t find any bottle under $100 with most of them being $200 and above. However, Bond No. 9 offers a wide range of scent selections available both for men and women.
We have tested what we think are the top 10 best Bond No.9 perfume for men. Keep in mind that some of these are unisex/androgynous and not all of them offer overly masculine scents.
Let us begin.
#10 Wall Street
Bond No.9 Wall Street is an Aromatic Aquatic fragrance for both women and men, which is more in line with Acqua di Gio rather than the familiar Old Spice or Irish Spring. The bottle is a classy black and gold, which goes well with its tagline “dollars and scents never smelled so good.”
The Bond Wall Street offers a slight hint of citrus combined with its aromatic aqua scent and fresh cucumber/sea kale scent, reminding us of the fast-paced bankers in manly cologne on the busy financial district on a weekday. There’s also the aftertouch of musk and lavender, offering more depth to the androgynous scent.
- Top Notes: Citrus, Sea Kale, Cucumber
- Middle Notes: Ozone, Lentisque, Thyme, Lavender, Bigarade
- Base Notes: Musk, Ambergris, Vetiver
#9 Sutton Place
Named after one of the most famous and luxurious neighborhoods in Manhattan, the Bond No. 9 Sutton Place is the choice if you are looking for a masculine, modern fragrance. It is a relatively new addition to the Bond No. 9 fragrance line, only been introduced in 2016. Yet, it quickly gained popularity as one of the best Bond No. 9 for men.
The Sutton Place is not your regular unisex fragrance, starting off with the retro scent of the strong and surprising pink pepper, accompanied with fresh bergamot and sweet pineapple, creating a spicy but fresh fruity combination.
The base notes of masculine leather and vanilla, however, add more roughness to the whole fragrance, making the Sutton Place a really unique, masculine scent that stands apart.
- Top Notes: Pineapple, pink pepper, bergamot, tangerine, blackcurrant
- Middle Notes: Patchouli, jasmine, lily
- Base Notes:Musk, amber, leather, vanilla
The Bond No.9 Hamptons features a fresh aquatic aroma reminding its wearers about the flavor of the sea-breeze. The top note of the Hampton is characterized by the strong Bergamot, providing us with a fresh and cool start.
The middle notes, however, are laden with subtle flowery flavors of jasmine and Turkish roses. Later on, we can finally the smell of the base notes, which features a slight hint of sandalwood mixed with amber.
Overall, the scent is both fresh and srrong, while not forgetting the seductive qualities and lightness for both men and women. A great, androgynous choice for summer and spring. However, being a balanced scent overall, the Hamptons is a versatile perfume you can use all year-round.
- Top Notes:bergamot, linden blossom, lime blossom, white cedar
- Middle Notes:Turkish rose, jasmine, magnolia

Designed to capture one of the best signature attributes for New York City: peace, the Bond No. 9’s Scent of Peace offers a tranquil fragrance with the mix of fresh and light citruses, spicy woody undertones, and deep musky base notes.
The start of the fragrance is smokey with the citrusy bergamot and fresh pineapple. You also get a hint of juniper berries here and there that demands to be the center of attention. The middle note is masculine, woody notes of cedarwood and blackcurrant accompanied by vetiver, creating a versatile unisex scent.
You can sense a peaceful and fresh androgynous scent in the Scent of Peace without really compromising the masculinity or femininity. A very unique unisex scent that is versatile and innovative.

#6 Bleecker Street
Named after the famous street in Manhattan, Bond No. 9 Bleecker Street is a unique combination of woody, fruity, and suede scents creating a fresh, fun and glowing fragrance for the wearer. Just like the actual Bleecker Street itself, which is famous for its comedy clubs and music venues.
The opening notes are suede and blueberry, offering a light and classy surprise from the very start. The middle notes are filled with a combination of jasmine and oakmoss with a scent of warm caramel and vanilla.
A unique and fresh masculine aroma, suitable especially for mature men.

#5 New Haarlem
The Bond No.9’s New Haarlem starts off with a very recognizable scent of coffee, which is then closely followed with soft aroma from vanilla and a little hint of smoky scents from amber. There are also hints of earthy flavors from tonka beans and lavender. However, coffee and vanilla are the most powerful scents on the top notes.
Following in the middle notes are fresh bergamot and patchouli, and while the coffee aroma is still there, it has been nicely softened with the woody notes of lavender and cedarwood.
A delicate and unique masculine fragrance that is especially great in autumn and winter.
- Top Notes:Vanilla, amber, and coffee
- Middle Notes:Bergamot, patchouli
- Base Notes:Patchouli, cedarwood
#4 New York Oud
The New York Oud was introduced in 2011 as Bond No 9’s “oriental” fragrance, which is mainly characterized by its rather strange and unique contrasting scents between red plum and saffron. Red plum is sweet but woody, and saffron is spicy and light.
The result is a unique fruity but woody blend that starts off really soft but slowly transforms into a deep, woody masculine scent. The middle notes are musky with the oud scent accompanied by earthy and flowery scents of red rose and orris, creating a spacious feel like the New York city itself.
At the base, we get the lingering honey to bring the wild attraction to a close. A unique frankincense masculine scent that is also good as a unisex choice.
- Top Notes: Red plum,orange zest, saffron,
- Middle Notes: Oud, red rose, orris, patchouli
- Base Notes: musk, honey, vetiver
Named after the famous neighborhood, the Bond No.9’s Queens is a representation of what Queens is about: diversity. Queens is probably the most diverse place on earth, and this is well represented in the fragrance.
Bond No,9’s Queens is a unisex fragrance, and the best way to describe the scent is probably: intense. At the start is a combination of bergamot, blackberry, and cardamom, providing you with a spicy but fruity start. The Queen’s signature scent, however, is the fruity tuberose scent at the middle, combined with its floral spices.
A strong fragrance with an exotic intensity behind the floral scents, a unisex fragrance that is great for bold and creative men.
- Top Notes:Bergamot, cardamom, blackberry
- Middle Notes: Champaca, osmanthus, tuberose
- Base Notes: Musk, amber, benzoin, sandalwood
#2 New York Sandalwood
The Bond No. 9’s New York Sandalwood is a very diverse and complex scent: a combination of spicy and earthy fragrances with subtle hints of freshness and sweetness here and there.
The signature scent of the New York Sandalwood is—as the name suggests— sandalwood, combined with oakmoss and amber. Very dry, masculine warmth, and what’s unique about the New York Sandalwood is the inclusion of the carrot fragrance at the top.
A very masculine scent, strong and fresh with powdery presence.
- Top Notes: Orris, carrot, cardamom
- Middle Notes: Sandalwood, fig, papyrus
- Base Notes: Amber, oakmoss, musk
#1 Chez Bond
Last but not least, we have the Chez Bond.
Chez Bond is no doubt a masculine fragrance that is best described as fern perfume for men. At the beginning of the aroma is the sparking citrus flavor with hints of lemon that is blended with the green aroma of flower leaves.
In the middle, we get the hints of sandalwood notes that made the earthy herbal tea scent stands out. As it dries out, the scent becomes warmer with more hints of tea while retaining its elegant masculine features.
A very strong expression for masculinity, Chez Bond is a great choice for confident and bold men.
- Top Notes: Leafy greens, sparkling citrus tones
- Middle Notes: Herbal tea, violet leaves
- Base Notes: Cedarwood, sandalwood, vetiver Summing Up
