Chinatown is without a doubt one of the highlights of Bonds excellent fragrance collection. It opens with a sweet and intense floral Gardenia note, underscored by a milky Peach note. Together these accords create the illusion of Chinese Lacquerware. What makes Chinatown even more marvelous, is the base note, which features a Chypre accord. The Chypre accord was invented in 1917, and has taken over perfumery ever since. Bond has combined the traditional Chypre with the modern Gourmand, not only once, but already twice! Lexington Avenue is also a Gourmand Chypre. Great work, Bond!
