For the last few years, Bond No.9 have made their name creating fragrances inspired by the locations and ideas of New York. This time, they have created fragrances based on the institution that is Saks Fifth Avenue - the iconic store that was founded in New York by Andrew Saks in 1867.
Deborah Walters, Senior Vice President and General Merchandise Manager, Cosmetics and Fragrances, Saks Fifth Avenue said, “Saks Fifth Avenue is excited to be collaborating with Bond No. 9 on Saks Fifth Avenue for Him and Saks Fifth Avenue for Her. This will allow our customer across the country to experience the quintessential Saks Fifth Avenue scent. Everyone here at Saks is thrilled to be a part of such a unique fragrance collection of New York neighborhoods and feel it is such an honor to have two scents dedicated to our New York flagship.”
Saks Fifth Avenue for Her contains notes of Jasmine, Tuberose, Gardenia, Vetiver and Vanilla. Saks Fifth Avenue for Him contains notes of Chili, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Bergamot, Incense, Guaic Wood and Amber. Perfumer Michel Almairac created both scents.
This is not the first time Saks have been involved with their own fragrance. The store had several fragrances created for them in the twenties and thirties.
The two new fragrances are available exclusively from Saks and Bond No.9's freestanding New York stores and will be available from September 1st 2007.
The following fragrances and houses are mentioned in this article. (In order of appearance...)
