Bond No. 9 will be launching two new perfumes in the next few months: Cooper Square and Washington Square. And here’s EauMG’s sneak peek…
Cooper Square will be launched September 1st. Cooper Square is based on the NYC hotspot, Cooper Square (where East Village meets NoHo, and the Bowery and the new über-Downtown meet). Cooper Square is described as “Downtown in future mode“. It’s an unisex fragrance that is heavy on incense and spices, like the hip neighborhood the fragrance is dedicated to (many hip restaurants). Notes listed include: juniper berry, vetiver, cognac, lavender, patchouli, and ciste labdanum. The bottle is “in future mode” as well. The bottle is laser-etched in a Bond No. 9 signature logo. Both the juice and the bottle seem “intense and contemporary”.
Washington Square will be launched November 1st. Washington Square is based on NYC city park, Washington Square (located in bohemian Greenwich Village). This is described as an iconoclastic scent, like the historical city park it’s based on. This unisex fragrance (more towards the female end of the spectrum) is described as a modern rose with notes of old-fashioned purple rose, tarragon, and unexpected leather. The bottle is a highly detailed “photo negative” with blue tones (resembling an antique daguerreotypes) of modern day Washington Square. The fragrance and the bottle is a mix of the old and new.
When these are launched, Cooper Square and Washington Square will be sold at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bond Boutiques, and Bond’s on-line boutique. A 3.4 oz bottle will retail for $230 and a 1.7 oz for $170.
So what do you think? Are you excited about these new Bond No. 9 releases? I find the Washington Square EDP very intriguing. From the notes, it reminds me of Hermès Kelly Calèche, but I hope this one has more leather than the Hermès. I always get stoked about new rose fragrance releases. I also love the look of the Washington Square bottle. I love, love antique photography. I hear that Cooper Square is very nice, but the notes sound masculine to me and the bottle looks masculine too. But, I usually fall hard for spicy, incense fragrances and that is how Cooper Square is described.
