Bond No 9 is about to release Bryant Park, The Scent of New York’s Frenzied Fashionistas Descending on a Lush Oasis of WiFe’ed Greenery Just One Block from Times Square. Inspired by the park in the heart of midtown Mandattan, the current home of the New York Fashion Week, the scent is said to be Bond No 9's "most fashion-oriented eau de parfum: a rose-patchouli concoction with pink pepper added for dissonance".
The Bryant Park bottle, ornamented with swirls of pink, lavender, and black on a white background, is evocative of the gossamer silk pre-Mod textiles of the late 1950s and early 1960s.
As for the notes, the fragrance will have:
Not so demure lily of the valley.
Rhubarb too feisty for a fruit pie.
Nearly sneeze-able pink pepper
that undercuts any hint of sweetness.
Rose, for a dose of undiluted femininity.
In your face, insolent patchouli.
Tart and decadent raspberry.
Soothingly sensual amber.
Bryant Park will premiere at Olympus Fashion Week (in Bryant Park, natch!) and be officially launched on March 1st 2007. It will be available at all four Bond No. 9 stores in New York, countrywide at selected branches of Saks Fifth Avenue and internationally at Harvey Nichols, UK, Paris Gallery, U.A.E, and in Lane Crawford, Hong Kong. Besides being sold in its 3.4 oz. artist-designed superstar bottle and box presentation ($185), 1.7oz travel size ($125) and by the ounce ($45), it will also be offered in 2-ounce basic spray flacons with gilt honeycomb cap ($40-$150) and in vintage/art bottles, featured in a wide variety of designs ($60 - $200).
