The new fragrance of the New York-themed collection is dedicated to Queens and will be available from September 2014, as announced by Laurice Rahmé, founder and owner of Bond No. 9
Bond No.9 Queens is also inspired by Queen Catherine of Braganza, the wife of King Charles II of England. “It’s very important for us to celebrate the world since Bond No. 9 is a New York brand and we are now marketed in 36 countries,” said Rahmé. “So the mission statement [for the brand] was to take New York fragrances to the world.”
The new fragrance is signed by IFF perfumer Laurent Le Guernec and is designed as a unisex tuberose! It opens with notes of bergamot, cardamom and blackberries, which are followed by tuberose, champaca flowers and osmanthus in the heart. The base combines sandalwood, benzoin, musk and amber.
The fragrance comes in a purple bottle of 50ml and 100ml EDP, accompanied by body care lotion of 200ml. On the flacon is a gold rendering of the 1964 World’s Fair Unisphere representing the theme of global interdependence.
