Bond No.9 Manhattan Perfume
At last! For the sinuous, sensual, billion-megawatt city that never sleeps, an after-hours eau de parfum it can call its own.
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. Nowhere else can you find such an amazing line-up of neat and elegant grand-manner apartment houses--with the singular purpose of overlooking and honoring the magnificent greenery that, after all, is their front yard. For veteran insiders, the apartment enclaves of Central Park West--the Dakota, the San Remo, the Majestic, the Century--are quintessential New York, complete with their ballroom-size marble lobbies, private elevator halls, and banquet-style dining rooms And whether in Italian Renaissance, Beaux-Arts, or Art Deco style, many of these buildings look amazingly like the movie palaces of the Twenties--which may explain the street's longstanding attraction for colorful celebrity-residents, including Zero Mostel and John Lennon. It's also home to the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Society for Ethical Culture, the New York Historical Society, the acclaimed gourmet restaurant Jean Georges, and the Hayden Planetarium. This street is so grand, it has its own high-power access to the stars in the heavens.
Manhattan, the eau de parfum, is an after-hours shared scent with a high seduction quotient. Officially it belongs in the oriental gourmand category, rich in spices - some of them very new to the oriental repertory. Its pace is set by a melange of topnotes: mouthwatering nutmeg ... worldly saffron, evoking dried flowers ... delicate coriander seeds - softened with the addition of luscious, mouthwatering peach. The heart notes continue the gourmet theme, as sweet honeycomb, made from the nectar of flowers, mingles with black plum, hinting of chocolate, and a warm and inviting gingerbread accord. Moroccan jasmine, the sole flower at the center of this scent, itself evokes the aura of peaches or ripe bananas. Then comes the lingering drydown: Creamy, velvety-smooth sandalwood; rich, balsamic patchouli; a soft and warm vanilla infusion; and unapologetically sensual, skin-like musk.
The bottle is a perfect visualization of the scent itself. A network of laser-etched Bond No. 9 tokens, rendered in red, shimmer against that midnight blue New York sky. Look close-up, as you would through a kaleidoscope, and you're almost glimpsing an abstraction of the flickering city itself. What you're seeing is an urban landscape of possibility.
Suggested Retail Price: $270 for 100ml; $190 for 50ml; $105 for candle; $110 for body silk.
