It is fitting that this new artisanal eau de parfum should be designed and made in New York— Bond No. 9’s home town, and the inspiration for our entire collection of metro-scents. After all, New York has long been a melting pot—a place of tolerance and understanding. Home to the United Nations, it is also a city where disparate neighborhoods thrive in proximity and sometimes blend (like a beautiful perfume). And of course the events of 9/11 have underlined for us and the world the importance of tolerance and détente.
The scent is a soothing and assured modern masculine blend, composed of both contemporary and traditional fragrance notes. It begins with classic bergamot—a winter citrus with a soft tang. That’s combined with two new flavors: ripe, juicy, tangy pineapple and juniper berry, hinting of both pine and greenery. These segue into the heart notes: blackcurrent—the fresh and elusive smell of cassis; calming cedarwood; and cool, musty, smoky vetiver—a mainstay of men’s perfumery. The Scent of Peace for Him then evolves into its durable base notes, that give it lasting power. Patchouli, amber, and musk—a seductive trifecta; plus moss, adding an earthy forest note.
Bond no. 9 The Scent of Peace for Him will be available in 50 ($180) or 100 ($250) ml Eau de Parfum.
