As previously reported, Bond no. 9 has launched a new limited edition fragrance exclusively for the Boca Raton Saks. According to Laurice Rahme of Bond, Boca is "like New York on the beach". Her description of the Saks Boca scent:
It had to be something fresh, but something rich enough that it says something. There is a lot of gardenia, [and] a little citrus because I think of Boca as hot, and the black currant and a little grapefruit. When it’s hot, if you wear something fresh, after a half hour, you want to have something dry on your skin [so I added] amber, which is very rich. In the hot weather, I like to have amber on my skin.
Additional notes reportedly include lily of the valley, freesia, hedione, cedar, cardamom and musk.
Bond no. 9 Saks Boca is available in the bottle shown, with Swarovski crystals ($375; 175 bottles available), or in a bottle completely covered with crystals ($500, 50 bottles available), size and concentration unknown but presumably 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
