Bond No. 9: Paying Homage to the Big Apple

Fragrances are far more than just a pleasant scent. They invoke memories, help people express their personalities, and can be customized to fit a specific event, season or setting.

Among the industry’s top, boutique brands is Bond No. 9, offering fragrances themed after iconic New York City locations. Each scent is housed in collector-worthy bottles and packaging, appealing to even the most refined of tastes.

Laurice Rahmé, founder, CEO and New York’s first parfumerie to be headed by a woman, oversees every aspect of Bond No. 9.  From creating the New York-centric concept behind the eau de parfum collection, to guiding the development of each fragrance and bottle design as well as designing the interior of each Bond No. 9 boutique. Of which, Aventura Mall is home to one of only six boutique locations in the United States.

The newly released Tribeca Swarovski—named after the hip New York City neighborhood—features a bottle encrusted with crystals from the iconic brand. With notes of cacao, green hazelnut, jasmine absolute, cedarwood, ambroxan, moss and caramel, the warm and romantic scent is an excellent choice for an intimate gathering on a cool evening.

Dubbed “the world’s first shopping scent,” Madison Avenue is proof of how fragrances can be tailored to any occasion. Bright notes of apple, rose, jasmine and pralines yield a refreshing, clean effect, perfectly suited to a day of shopping.

Greenwich Village is easily one of NYC’s most beloved neighborhoods, and its creative and eclectic energy is captured by its namesake Bond No. 9 fragrance. Exotic notes of patchouli, lychee, mandarin, and waterlily are balanced by sweeter notes of vanilla and praline, with the overall effect invoking a walk through the Village’s brownstone-laden streets.

As depicted by its artfully designed bottle, Madison Square Park is a luxurious, floral scent ideally suited to springtime. Notes include hyacinth and huckleberry, with a woodsy base fragrance that adds an air of sophistication to the playful, feminine fragrance.

To sample these and find your own, signature fragrance, visit the Bond No. 9 boutique, located on the upper level near Macy’s. Call 305-931-1488 to speak with a store associate.
