The city that never sleeps inspires Bond no 9 to create fragrances for every New York neighborhood. Each fragrance represents a specific downtown, midtown, or uptown locale or a city-wide sensibility. Of course my interest lies with their latest addition, Brooklyn, which comes in a graffiti scrawled bottle. Unisex with a desirably masculine attitude, Brooklyn the scent, is romantic and sexy, spicy-filled oriental that mingles cardamom, geranium leaves, cedarwood while grapefruit and juniper leaves accelerate the scent.
Brooklyn also has what’s known in the trade as sillage, which is to say, it doesn’t cling to the skin, but rather diffuses, leaving a trail behind it. To make things a bit more interesting, Bond no.9 is having a design competition right now to create the additional visuals for this scent. Click here for more info.
