Spring is always a great time to lighten up–not only the wardrobe, but fragrances, too. Bond No. 9 has just released Central Park West, a gorgeous Eau de Parfum that welcomes in the lushness of the season to come. Read on for more…
Nobody pays homage to all that is quintessential New York better than Bond No. 9. This is the seventh fragrance to celebrate the city’s parks and I have to say, of all of the Bond No. 9 fragrances, this one is my favorite. Central Park West is a magnificent destination–tall, elegant apartments and buildings that overlook the expanse of greenery that is Central Park. I imagine that this fragrance is what you would smell if you lived nearby and opened a window–a mix of floral and sunshine, greenery and woods.
Bond No. 9 Central Park West, in my opinion, is a grand floral with green notes. The fragrance opens with Narcissus mingled with Ylang Ylang and a zest of piquant Black Pepper. Then comes the floral bouquet at the heart: gardenia, jasmine, citrus-like Linen and Orris. The base notes are Vetiver, Musk, White Oak and Treemoss.
In the time that I’ve been wearing this fragrance, I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I’ve received. It’s such a pretty fragrance; if you gravitate towards a bright floral, I’d encourage you to try this one. Not only do I love the juice; the bottle is chic, too. A pistachio background highlights the oversize, classic houndstooth check pattern. Around the of the neck of the bottle is a detachable, double-row bracelet of pink beads with a big pink floral blossom that you can wear. Love that!
Bond No. 9 Central Park West Eau de Parfum is available at Bond No. 9’s six New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, and bondno9.com.
