High Line - new fragrance from Bond No. 9
are launching a new fragrance this March. The fragrance is named High Line
after the 1.45-mile (2.33 km) New York City park built on a section of the former elevated freight railroad of the West Side Line, along the lower west side of Manhattan (see Wikipedia
). The fragrance has been created by Laurent Le Guernec
, who was the perfumer behind some of Bond's other creations, including Astor Place, Brooklyn and So New York.
Bond No.9 say:
Since when do new neighborhoods arise in New York? Hardly ever. After all, this city is already jam-packed with just about every kind of community imaginable. So when a new part of town appears, you can be sure we’re in for something completely different. Like our latest and most dynamic neighborhood, the High Line—which serves as the subject of Bond No. 9’s Spring 2010 eau de parfum. An improbable aerial walkway lined with concrete planks and railroad tracks, landscaped with meadows, wetlands, and wildflowers, the High Line hovers 30 feet above street level as it meanders along its route from the Meatpacking District to the former 34th Street rail yards--- sometimes bridging its way through buildings along the way.
The scent's ingredients feature notes from some of the plants that live on the High Line. High Line contains top notes of purple love grass, bergamot, Indian rhubarb. The heart is red-leaf rose, Lady Jane tulips, and grape hyacinth. Base notes consist of bur oak and imported sea moss
Available at Bond No. 9 stores and stockists from March 2010, $220 for 100ml; $145 for 50ml.
