The up-and-here New York City Meatpacking District is taking a major step in the right direction. On Saturday, Bond No.9 perfumer will open another satellite shop at 863 Washington Street—opposite of the southern end of the recently expanded High Line— bringing all sorts of new (and sweeter) scents to the area.
Bond No.9 celebrates the diversity of New York with fragrances that represent a specific location within downtown, midtown, or uptown. With one spritz you’re good to go all day, and the chic packaging makes the entire experience worthwhile. I’m a sucker for sparkle, so The Scent of Peace Swarovski Purple Velvet Superstar is definitely my dream aroma.
The shop is a work of art in itself—housed inside a red brick building twice the size of the other branches, with a perfume salon lit by green chandelier up front, and a library-tearoom-bar awaiting you in the back. This store is clearly creating the ultimate aromatic experience; you can browse fragrance collection books while enjoying a cup of tea. At the shop you’ll be able to find all 43 of their eaux de parfum, candles, soaps, body potions, pocket luxuries, and their legendary custom-blending service. See you on Saturday?
