Beauty Buzz. Are You a Bond (No. 9) Girl? Smellin’ Pretty on the Streets of New York. Second City Style Fashion & Beauty Blog

Fountain of 30

I first noticed these memorable perfume bottles in Saks and in little Bond No. 9 boutiques in New York a while back. It wasn’t until I smelled the scent "Bryant Park" during fashion week that I became intrigued enough to delve a little deeper in to this perfume brand.

Everyone should do their part to make the city streets (in any city) smell a little better. Don’t you think? Bond No. 9, a fragrance collection that pays homage to New York, is trying to do just that.

The Bond No. 9 collection–28 women’s, men’s, and unisex eaux de parfum–has a dualBond_no_9
mission:  To restore artistry to perfumery, and to mark every New York neighborhood with a scent of its own. This unique and edgy perfume brand first debuted in 2003 and is now pretty much all over New York.

Each fragrance represents a specific downtown, midtown, or uptown locale or a city-wide sensibility.  New scents are added to the growing collection each season (look for "Brooklyn" for fall).

You too can smell like; "Park Avenue", "Central Park", "Wall Street (money)", "The Hamptons", "Coney Island" (new for summer) or whichever other part of NYC strikes your fancy.

Purchase Bond No. 9 at select Saks Fifth Avenue locations, their online store Bond No. 9 or at one of their four NY retail boutiques.

If you visit one of the stores you can chose your own bottle (modern or vintage), purchase by the ounce (all Bond No. 9 fragrances cost $40- $45 per ounce) or even design your very own fragrance (costs more). Should you order online, the scents will arrive as pictured and cost $120-$125 (1.7 Fl. Oz).
