I LOVE NEW YORK for Marriage Equality is a new eau de parfum that honors love, marriage and and civil rights and is the seventh collaboration between the I Love New York brand and Bond No. 9. The new fragrance honours the groundbreaking Marriage Equality Act, signed into law for the legalisation of same-sex marriages on June 24th, 2011 taking effect on July 24th, 2011 – which everyone the world over should be continue to follow suit, hello Australian Government!
The new fragrance is described as soft and sensual woody-spicy fragrance. The gender free scent opens with enticing gustatory notes & mandarin, nutmeg, plum, and cinnamon bark. These segue into a contemporary wedding-bouquet heart of classic rose and jasmine laced with ginger lily. Then, just as a great marriage gradually evolves over time, this one endures with deeper, rich forest base-notesâ€”cashmere wood, sandalwood, and that seductive tree resin, amber.
Bond No. 9’s superstar bottle, rendered in bridal white, displays the iconic I LOVE NEW YORK logo with the also-iconic gay rainbow on its heart.
I LOVE NEW YORK for Marriage Equality arrives on-counter July 24th, 2012 and will be sold at Bond No. 9’s five New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, bondno9.com. Price: 100ml, US$175; 50ml, US$105.
Here’s to the spreading of a united message of love and commitment the world over.
