F is for Flamboyant: Bond No. 9 New York Rocks Out for the Holidays

Every city has diverse pockets of personality. In Toronto we have Little Italy, Little Portugal, Chinatown, Forest Hill, the Annex, and so on.

No other metropolis in the world is known for so many distinctive neighbourhoods as New York City. Bond No. 9 New York fragrances, fairly new to Canada, are about celebrating every part of NYC. Park Avenue, Bryant Park, Bleecker Street, Chelsea... so far 34 districts are commemorated with locale-inspired scents in striking, collect-them-all flacons. (Pause for a moment to enjoy the word: flacon. Flacon, flacon, flacon.) Holiday standouts include  50 mL bottles of Chelsea Flowers, Eau de New York and Chinatown each encrusted with 5,000 of the teensiest, sparkliest Swarovski crystals.

Talk about glitterati style.

Bond No. 9 New York fragrances range from $155 to $565 and are available in Canada at Holt Renfrew; visit for global retail info.
