Can a fragrance be civic-minded and politically savvy? The creators of Bond No. 9 The Scent of Peace are convinced that one can make a political message with perfume. The Scent of Peace is described as commemorating “our post-9/11 conviction that peace is a beautiful, beautiful thing. And that’s why we at Bond No. 9 decided to assist those neighborhoods of the world that are not at peace, by donating $2 for every bottle of The Scent of Peace that is purchased during the coming year to UNICEF. We call that Making Scents of Peace.” Notes include grapefruit, black currant, lily of the valley, hedione, cedarwood and musk.
The official launch date is May 1, 2006. The Scent of Peace will be available at all four Bond No. 9 stores as well as at selected branches of Saks Fifth Avenue, in Harvey Nichols, UK, Paris Gallery, U.A.E, and in Lane Crawford, Hong Kong.
