Spring Scents Are in the Air With Bond No. 9

Spring is in the air, so why not welcome the season with a fresh new scent from Bond No. 9? I've coveted the New York City-centric fragrance line since I was handed a sample during Fashion Week several years ago.

Bond No. 9's newest fragrance, Central Park West, follows in the tradition of the brand's other park-theme perfumes -- Central Park, Gramercy Park, the High Line, Washington Square, Madison Square Park and my favorite -- Bryant Park.

The scent was designed to be as grand as the street itself and starts off with a springtime wakeup call: Narcissus mingled with tangy ylang ylang and a pinch of piquant pepper. Then with come-hither notes of white-petaled orris, jasmine and linden surrounded by majestic gardenia. Sustaining and enriching this bouquet is an enduring base of white oak and vetiver, combined with a hint of musk.

The fashionable Central Park West bottle comes with a gift of a detachable, double-row bracelet in pink beads with a big pink floral blossom around its neck.  The fragrance arrives in stores March 15, 2012 and will be sold at Bond No. 9's five New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and bondno9.com.

Prices range from $75 for the shower gel to $250 for the 100ml parfum.
