Bond No. 9 Central Park West : New Perfume


Bond No. 9 introduces a new fragrance inspired by New York’s neighborhood. Central Park West will officially launch on March 15. The notes include narcissus, black pepper, ylang-ylang, gardenia, jasmine, linden, iris, musk, white oak, treemoss, vetiver. It comes with a detachable pink flower, which can be worn as a brooch.

“Elegant thoroughfares with palatial buildings are in evidence elsewhere in Manhattan, but they’re the specialty at Central Park West, which urban planners and architectural critics regard as one of the grandest, most sumptuous addresses in America… Central Park West, the fragrance, has been designed to have the grandeur and largesse of the street itself. It starts off with a springtime wakeup call: Narcissus mingled with tangy ylang ylang and a pinch of piquant pepper. Then comes a beckoning white-petal mélange— orris, jasmine, and linden—surrounding their centerpiece, majestic gardenia. Sustaining and enriching this bouquet is an enduring base of white oak and vetiver, combined with the animal whiff of musk.”

Central Park West will be available at Bond No. 9’s six New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue and Price: 100ml, $250; 50ml, $180; body silk, $130; candle, $110; shower gel, $75. Via press release.

  • Victoria: I will definitely give it a sniff at Saks. The Bond No 9 counter is right by the entrance, and it is hard to miss. February 2, 2012 at 11:16pm Reply

  • Amer: I have always found them too expensive and the bottles are uber-tacky. I usually avoid trying them in fear I might like them and then pay a huge amount of money for something I’d be ashamed to have out in the open. February 5, 2012 at 6:40am Reply

  • Suzanna: They seem to be nudging their prices up again.

    I have one Bond. It’s Scent of Peace and it is perfect on muggy, boggy summer days. Other than this, Bond’s array confuses me. All I need to do is to get near a Bond counter at Saks to become flummoxed. All the florals become one indistinguishable mass to me, one to the next. I must try to remember Bond has a new frag next time I’m shopping. February 6, 2012 at 9:57am Reply
