Perfumista Avenue


Perfumista Avenue by Bond No. 9. is a huge sexy rose that will make your head spin. Feeling dizzy? Read on…

Bond No. 9 is a luxury niche brand that was created by Laurice Rahme in 2003 as an homage to a great city, its dual missions to make scents of New York - every New York neighbourhood would have a scent of its own - and to restore artistry to perfumery.  So far, Bond No. 9 has delivered on its promise. We love many of their EdP fragrances and have listed some of the best:  New Haarlem, Chinatown, Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory, Fire Island, all perfectly wearable by women and men (this is New York, after all). And now Perfumista Avenue joins the list, the first New York fantasy neighbourhood, launched in 2013 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the brand. From the launch release:

“There are many who say that the template for exquisitely beautiful and accomplished women was set in New York. But Perfumista Avenue was made for women everywhere who exhibit a New York state of mind. Super-strong and determined, this is an orientalist, leather-tinged blend that modernizes the breathtakingly fresh, ultra-feminine rose (New York State’s official flower). Here, rose is immediately perceived as a starting point, accompanied by lush and succulent plum. These give way to a series of overtly seductive animal notes: honey and musk, along with musk-like amber, and earthy patchouli. The overall effect is high-grade intoxication….”

This is potent stuff. Rose delivers a wake-up slap right out of the bottle, then softens a little, becoming plummy and exotically spiced with saffron and nutmeg. The dry-down is intense into the dramatic red-rose heart where patchouli and musk wrap around the floral sweetness amped up with sweet jasmine, and notes of honey and amber begin to pull the headstrong rose into the base. Saffron, earthy patchouli, and tea create a leather accord in the base, the plum keeps the rose smelling full and lush and very seductive. The dry-down is long and delicious.

This rose knows a thing or two about life on Perfumista Avenue in NYC, or anywhere.  It has a powerful and gorgeous sillage which lasts for hours - wear it and be different, be noticed. Take a chance and grab hold of a few special moments in your life, smell powerful, rich, sexy and beautiful.
