Bond celebrate ten years of boutique with Oud Perfume
New York fragrance house, Bond No.9, are celebrating ten years of their Bond Street boutique with a pure perfume, oud-based fragrance. According to Bond, the fragrance contains only four notes: Oud, Rose, Tonka and Musk.
The world has many ouds, but here is an oud that could only come out of the fabled melting pot that is New York. Bond No. 9 Perfume contains four superbly harmonious East/West ingredients—the fewest of any Bond No. 9 fragrance (but no more were needed). Representing the Eastern world is earthy, sultry oud. Playing up against it is the rose, that epitome of refined sweetness, treasured in both the Middle East and the New World. Tonka beans from South America add to the heat with its caramel-almond flavor, while musk, inspired by the Asian musk deer, further underscores oud’s carnal nature.
The fragrance is housed in a golden version of the signature Bond No.9 star-shaped flacon. Bond No.9 Perfume Oud is available from Bond No.9 stores and Saks 5th Avenue. Price - $330 for 3.4 oz.
