Bond No 9 Perfume & Women's Fragrance

Bond No.9 is a leading luxury fragrance company that was launched in 2003. Created by the French born American businesswoman and entrepreneur Laurice Rahmé, who had a keen interest in arts and culture from an early age, Bond No. 9 was created to provide each neighbourhood in New York with it's own scent, almost like marking one's territory. This unique concept sets Bond No 9 perfumes apart from other scents.

Bond No. 9 first opened it's doors at 9 Bond Street in NoHo district of Manhattan with 16 original neighbourhood fragrances and to date it boasts 5 boutiques that have been named after the various neighbourhoods where they are based. The brand is also sold in selected upmarket boutiques.

One of their unique selling points is that they use English taxis decorated like their colourful bottles to provide transport for their customers and visitors. When the idea of Bond No.9 was originally born, the intention from Ms Rahmé was to make New York the perfume capital of the world and restore artistry to the world of perfumery, something that she had felt had been lacking for a while. Bond No. 9 takes pride in using the best and most unique fragrance oils and ingredients from around the world in their over 60 scents and this is reflected in the price.

Most Bond No 9 scents are in fact unisex but there are certain perfumes developed especially for women. These include Chelsea Flowers (2003), a floral scent with flowers like tulip, magnolia, rose and peony inspired by the NY flower market of the same name and Bryant Park (2007) which is a fresh and sweet rose scent inspired by the fashion week that takes place in the titular park. Other popular gender-neutral scents are Wall Street (2004), a very crisp aquatic scent with lemon, cucumber, bitter orange and vetiver and Brooklyn (2008), which features woody and spicy notes of juniper, geranium and leather.

Most of the women's fragrances and perfumes have been created by Rahmé with the help of some of the most renowned noses in the industry and they are said to have 18 – 22% concentration of pure perfume oils, making Bond scents some of the strongest on the market. Some of their “pure perfume” scents have 30% perfume oil concentration, including Bond No. 9 Signature and this leading fragrance giant has continued to develop their collection of industry awards for both the founder and the fragrances, with fragrances winning the prestigious FiFi Award in 2009 and 2012 and Rahmé herself collecting the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) "Innovator of the Year" award in 2012.
