Have you been very good this year? Perhaps Santa will consider Bond no. 9's Double Decker Gift Set, shown at right.
The box includes 50 ml bottles of West Side, Hamptons, Bryant Park, The Scent of Peace, Chinatown, Fire Island, Bleecker Street, Little Italy, Chelsea Flowers, Wall Street, Nuits de Noho, and Coney Island. $1600 at bondno9.
If you don't need quite so many mls, the Bond no. 9 Bon Bon Box is still available (18 pocket sprays, $250 at Saks).
If a little bling is more your style, Bond no. 9 has new crystallized versions of The Scent of Peace ($470, shown at right) and Saks Fifth Avenue for Her ($550), both in 100 ml and featuring Swarovski crystals.
Also still available: Bond no. 9 Chinatown Crystallized (100 ml, $395) and Nuits de Noho Crystallized (100 ml, $395). (via bondno9)
I don't think I've EVER been that good! How sweet would that be though?!
Don't they give part of the proceeds from Scent of Peace to the nonprofit that inspired it? If so, what a nice thing to make that the holiday edition. Or am I just dreaming of socially responsible capitalism?

Robin, you have an email from me!
Could someone take a week or so and educate me on the whole Swarovski crystals thing? Exactly why are they so expensive? Aren't they just sort of a more upscale BeadDazzler?
Aren't I in a snarky mood!?!
HA — nor have I, apparently
I think you're right, but not sure that extends to this bottle (?) And will check, thanks!
Beats me. They aren't really that expensive if you buy them to bead, which I used to do.
I think all crystal has a quality scale and worth, just like diamonds.
What a treat the gift set would be! Especially for someone who's never tried Bond no 9. $1600 though!? Wow…I can't throw down that kind of money myself. lol
And neither can I! But it will presumably make someone very happy to open this year…
This nothing to do with this brand, but today I saw a fragrance with the name La Mome. It was on the lowest shelve of Marionnaud but still at the exclusive side of the store. I've never heard of this one and don't even know whose scent it is.
Never saw it before and cannot place it. Do you know it?
Had no time yet to google it and am going to sleep now for we are six hours ahead of you in time
It is by Balmain, and you can find a link under “New Perfumes” above. Haven't smelled it though!
Balmain, thank you. Will go and smell again one of these days. Had my hands and arms full with other delights, some good and some not so good. Four or five at a time is what I can take (took some sprayed paperstrips home as well, as if I could distinguish those extra's ;)…
Have not seen Bond here.
Swarovski is worth to explore and it's worth the money. There is a big beautiful Swarovski store in the heart of Prague and goodness do they have gorgeous stuff. Their jewelry is fabulous, their handbags, belts, their art…I love it. At http://www.swarovski.com you can find more about them.
Personally I don't care for perfumes in a Swarovski bottle. Think that the crystal and the alcohol bite eachother..?
