It's no secret that Brooklyn has become the hip place to be over the past few years, and swanky New York perfume house Bond No. 9 is about to deliver once again with a new scent called — what else? — Brooklyn.
Set for a March debut, the unisex blend was designed to capture the essence of the artistic, ever-changing, and edgy vibe of this city-within-a-city. With top notes of cardamom and grapefruit; middle notes of cypress-wood, geranium leaves, and juniper berries; and bottom notes of cedarwood, guaiacwood, and leather, Brooklyn ($145 to $220) is sexy, spicy, and tender. Or as they like to say in the fragrance biz, it's a woody, spicy-filled oriental.
As for the distinctively-shaped bottle, Bond No. 9's Brooklyn is street art all the way with graffit-esque writing in bold eye-catching hues. Look for the new scent at one of Bond No. 9's four New York City boutiques and Saks Fifth Avenue — but alas, it won't be found in Kings County itself.
