Bond no. 9 will launch Central Park West, the latest in their series of fragrances inspired by New York City neighborhoods, in March.
Elegant thoroughfares with palatial buildings are in evidence elsewhere in Manhattan, but they’re the specialty at Central Park West, which urban planners and architectural critics regard as one of the grandest, most sumptuous addresses in America. Nowhere else can you find such an amazing line-up of neat and elegant grand-manner apartment houses—with the singular purpose of overlooking and honoring the magnificent greenery that, after all, is their front yard.
...Central Park West, the fragrance, has been designed to have the grandeur and largesse of the street itself. It starts off with a springtime wakeup call: Narcissus mingled with tangy ylang ylang and a pinch of piquant pepper. Then comes a beckoning white-petal mélange— orris, jasmine, and linden—surrounding their centerpiece, majestic gardenia. Sustaining and enriching this bouquet is an enduring base of white oak and vetiver, combined with the animal whiff of musk.
Bond no. 9 Central Park West will be available in 50 ml ($180) and 100 ($250) ml Eau de Parfum and in matching body products.
