Bryant Park - Bond No 9 - Review

The newest Bond No 9, Bryant Park, is the 28th in the series of NYC neighborhood scents. Created to honor Bryant Park in the heart of midtown, home to Fashion Week festivities.

Created by perfumer Michel Almairac, it is described as "a rose-patchouli concoction with pink pepper added for dissonance".

Starting out it is a bit on the sharp side thanks to lily of the valley joined with the tangy tartness of rhubarb. Pink pepper adds a light spiciness. The raspberry note makes its appearance next, lightly sweetening the composition, but not so much as to make it too fruity or sweet. Next comes the soft rose, patchouli, amber drydown. The fragrance moves from top to bottom rather quickly leaving a drydown is very light and sheer. So even though it starts out slightly sharp, it is not loud, on the contrary it is one of the softer Bond scents, quickly settling in and lying close to the skin.

Very pretty and wearable this is an easygoing daytime scent, destined to be a best seller.

Top: Lily of the Valley, rhubarb, pink pepper
Mid: Rose, patchouli
Base: Raspberry, amber

Official Launch date will be March 1st. Please check the Bond No 9 website for the announcement of the official release and to shop for other fine Bond No 9 Fragrances.
