Bond No. 9 is known for its New York-centric neighborhood scents and Bond No. 9 have partnered with iconic I LOVE NEW YORK brand to launch a second luxury eau de parfum collection, inspired by the entire Empire State. This partnership celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of New York and will encompass the 15 regions of New York State when the line is complete.
The campaign combines the iconic I LOVE NEW YORK logo, designed in 1977 for the State of New York by Milton Glaser, with Bond No. 9\’s own token logo, created during the same decade.
I LOVE NEW YORK for Her, in a pink bottle, is a pastry gourmand of rich vanilla frosting. The opening notesâ€”mandarin zest and a blueberry muffin accord segue into roses, pink peonies, and patchouli. Then the tone deepens elegantly into musk, vanilla bourbon, and soft leather accord.
I LOVE NEW YORK for Him, in a blue bottle, is about getting outside. The opening notesâ€”grapefruit zest, juniper berry, and ginger. Then the scent (like the man) segues into lavender, geranium and leather. The base notesâ€”sandalwood, musk, and amberâ€”are smoky and sensual.
In a black bottle, I LOVE NEW YORK for All is smooth yet awakening. At the heart of this gourmand: coffee beans, cacao, and chestnut. Initially it energizes with bergamot, lily of the valley, and pepper, then the mellowness lingers with base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla.
Price points for the 50 and 100 ml. eau de parfum will be US$105 and US$175, respectively and will be on counter from September 18th at Bond No. 9 boutiques, Saks Fifth Avenue and select Nordstrom stores.
Bond No. 9 fragrances are currently available in Australia at David Jones, but are being discontinued I’ve just learnt.
