Apologies for the way too obvious tagline – we couldn’t resist! Perfume is so very important to us and no outfit is complete until we have spritzed. There have been many contenders over the years… until now. We don’t even remember how we stumbled on this spectacular fragrance but we have been forever converted to the ever-wonderful Bond No.9.
The brand is named after the address of its headquarters – 9 Bond St in NoHo, New York. Their mission is to ‘restore artistry to perfume, and to mark every New York neighbourhood with a scent of it’s own’… Doesn’t that sound like a dreamy mission?
We lucked out with our first purchase from Bond No.9, bought scent-unsmelled. High Line, named after the derelict elevated railway, ingeniously turned public park, is a fresh and summery fragrance that never fails to elicit a ‘What is that beautiful smell?’ each time either of us wears it.
On a recent trip to NY, A visited 9 Bond Street armed with a plan – to buy the delightfully named Bon Bons – a gorgeous sampler with 18 of their fragrances in 6ml sprays. Brilliant!
We have had so much fun experimenting and mixing all the different fragrances. It is the perfect way to decide on our next Bond No.9 purchase. Currently in the lead are Central Park South and Chinatown… but then there’s also Bryant Park, Eau de New York and Little Italy.
LOVE A&B X
