Bond No 9 Aftershave & Men's Fragrance

Bond No. 9 is a perfume house founded in New York in 2003 by a leading French entrepreneur. The house made a mark on the fragrance and aftershave market right from the start with it's quirky and unique designs and excellent scents. They have produced over 60 fragrances for men and women along with a multitude unisex scents and customers are even able to blend and bottle their own customised fragrances at some Bond No. 9 locations.

Unlike most other perfume and aftershave companies, one of the differences about the Bond No. 9 fragrance collection is that the majority of the fragrances are unisex as opposed to being designed for individual genders. There are some fragrances, perfumes and aftershaves that have been designed specifically for men or women but they are limited – most of the fragrances that Bond No. 9 make are more based on a place or a mood. Their scents encompass many New York neighbourhoods, beaches, and places, as well as exclusive co-branded fragrance productions for Saks Fifth Avenue and Harrods. Most of the fragrances are based around the New York neighbourhood, including Central Park South, Madison Square Park, Manhattan, and many others. Not only does the company offer a vast collection of premium perfumes but candles, pocket sprays, body creams, and limited edition bottles covered in Swarovski crystals are also available.

The earliest collections of Bond No 9 cologne were released in 2003 and includes the fresh and woody Riverside Drive (2003) with pineapple, violet, basil and woods, the fougere Chez Bond (2003) and Great Jones with aromatic and woody notes. The more recent scents for men have more identifiable titles – for example 'I Love New York for Fathers' (2012), 'I Love New York for Him' (2011) and 'The Scent of Peace for Him' (2013). Simple in title but easy to tell apart, these masculine fragrances pack a punch yet are all very unique and individual in scent – reflecting the many hours of love, care and attention that has been injected into developing these sought after scents. 'I love New York for Him' is fresh spicy and aromatic yet I Love New York for Fathers is mainly citrus notes.

Bond No. 9 aftershave continues to be a hallmark of quality and the brand promotes a strong sense of community through their scent creations and their branding, promotions and partnerships. It places a lot of importance on supporting the environment, the community and the State of New York – all fragrances are made locally. In 2007 Bond No. 9 began a licensing partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, allowing for the creation of fragrances bearing the Warhol name, with bottle designs inspired by his iconic works of art. Although this partnership came to a close in 2013, Bond No. 9 kept the scents, but renamed and repackaged them.
