It’s Bond No. 9’s first fantasy neighborhood and a perfumer’s dream come true. It is an orientalist, leather-tingled blend that modernizes the fresh, ultra-feminine rose. The rose is the symbol flower of NYC. It is an homage to the city they love and the flower that represents it.
The featured note is not the rose, per se; it is a spice-fruit combo. The star of the show is an intense, loud note that immediately comes front and center. It is davana, a warm, herbal, woody, camphoraceous, and mysterious plant from India. As it wears, you pick up the saffron and nutmeg. It is highly unusual and beautiful.
In short this fragrance is a spicy, woody rose featuring a bold fruit note. Not a quiet scent. Ladies, check it out if you want to make a statement.
