About Bond No. 9 Manhattan
Manhattan, the eau de parfum, is an after-hours shared scent with a high seduction quotient. Officially, it belongs in the oriental gourmand category, rich in spices—some of them very new to the oriental repertory. Its pace is set by a mélange of top notes: mouthwatering nutmeg … worldly saffron, evoking dried flowers … delicate coriander seeds—softened with the addition of luscious, mouthwatering peach. The heart notes continue the gourmet theme, as sweet honeycomb, made from the nectar of flowers, mingles with black plum, hinting of chocolate, and a warm and inviting gingerbread accord. Moroccan jasmine, the sole flower at the center of this scent, itself evokes the aura of peaches or ripe bananas. Then comes the lingering drydown: Creamy, velvety-smooth sandalwood; rich, balsamic patchouli; a soft and warm vanilla infusion; and unapologetically sensual, skin-like musk.
The bottle is a perfect visualization of the scent itself. A network of laser-etched Bond No. 9 tokens, rendered in red, shimmer against that midnight blue New York sky. Look close-up, as you would through a kaleidoscope, and you’re almost glimpsing an abstraction of the flickering city itself. What you’re seeing is an urban landscape of possibility.
