Bond No. 9 has a history of summer scents reminiscent of summer vacations. First came Coney Island, then Fire Island, Montauk, the Hamptons and Shelter Island.
And now comes Liberty Island, Bond No. 9’s summer 2016 scent, available exclusively at Halls on Grand.
Arriving just in time for Independence Day, Liberty Island pays homage to a destination island visited by more than four million people a year: the 12-acre tract of land in Upper New York Bay that is home to none other than the crown-wearing, torch-bearing, 151-foot tall, Franco-American Statue of Liberty.
Liberty Island features a fruit, floral summertime blend, wearable by both women and men. Its starter notes of citrusy bergamot essence and mandarin essence, along with tangy black currant, are pleasant but memorable. The scent’s lush heart notes feature orange blossom absolute and jasmine, which segue into a lingering base of heady musk mingled with sugary marshmallow.
Bond No. 9’s Liberty Island superstar bottle is rendered in shining, semi-transparent cobalt blue. Randomly strewn on its surface is a network of white stars—inspired from both the Star-Spangled Banner and Miss Liberty’s irregularly star-shaped base.
