This will serve as my second Bond No.9 fragrance review. Last time out, I took a closer look at Riverside Drive, which while being fairly masculine could also serve as a unisex fragrance. This time around, I will review Broadway Nite, which is a wholly feminine fragrance from this New York design house. In this post, I want to give my overall impressions of Broadway Nite, describe its smell, how it performs, when it should be worn, and if its worth a purchase.
Notes include: rose, honeysuckle, iris, musk, amber, vanilla, heliotrope, violet

From the very start, Broadway Nite hits you with a bouquet of floral notes. The rose, iris, and heliotrope are definitely detectable and quite distinct. Just to throw this out there, if you aren’t a big floral fan, stay away from this perfume, as this one isn’t a fragrance with ‘universal’ appeal. Some folks will utterly hate this juice. Also, the vanilla and musk notes help to create a very powdery aroma, and that’s essentially what you’re going to get with Broadway Nite, a very floral/powdery perfume.
This perfume feels like a scent from a previous time period. It’s older and mature yet it can be very loud and in your face at the same time. As the scent wears on, the rose note begins to recede and the violet and powdery vibe becomes more prominent. It does have plenty of life and energy to it, though, I don’t think this would be the right fit for most younger women.
Projection wise, Broadway Nite is heavy. I think that any more than a few sprays, would be way too much to handle in an enclosed space. It does have very good longevity and I could still smell the perfume on my skin, from a distance, in the late evening (after a morning application). This is more of a nighttime wear, I don’t think it’d be all that great for office wear, as it is a ‘beast’ so to speak in terms of its strength.
Is Broadway Nite, worth a buy? It is if you’re a fan of floral/powdery perfumes and want something with a lot of strength. Otherwise, I’d go with something else. This is kind of a niche scent, in my opinion. I think it smells pretty good, it’s definitely not my favorite and I’d get a headache if someone wore too much of this stuff. Then again, I’m not too into rose and violet notes in fragrance, but to each their own.
