Brooklyn by Bond No.9 $145-$220; is a new scent that pays homage to the lovely borough. Decked out in graffitti-esque decor with the words "Brooklyn" and "Bond No.9" sure make it one to catch any eyesight. The unisex scent was made to reflect the essence of the borough's trendy vibe, artistic flair and ever-changing style.
And of course, because the perfumers at Bond No.9 are so genius they made sure that each note within the blend derived from a Brooklyn source such as:
Cypress Wood - Can be found at the Koi Pond at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden
Geranium Leaves - Can be found along the DUMBO waterfront
Juniper Berries - A favorite in the popular "Williamsburg Martini"
Cedarwood - A common scent found within Fort Greene's antique shops
Unisex with a desirably masculine attitude, Brooklyn the scent is romantic, sexy, and distinctive—built in a very contemporary way to display its entire composition, rather than individual notes.
But For those who want us to name names, it’s officially a woody, spicy-filled oriental that mingles cardamom, geranium leaves, and cedarwood while grapefruit and juniper leaves accelerate the scent, and South American guaiacwood and leather bring a tender, beckoning touch.
On the cutting-edge of perfumery, 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.
Brooklyn, the eau de parfum, will be available in two sizes: 100ml and 50 ml, at Bond No. 9’s four New York City boutiques, http://www.bondno9.com/, 877.273.3369, and at Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide beginning March 2009.
