Next month Bond no. 9 is releasing a new fragrance called Astor Place. The fragrance is inspired by Tony Rosenthal’s rotating black metal sculpture called “Alamo”, but known locally as the “Astor Place Cube”, situated at the corner of Lafayette Street and 8th Street.
Astor Place is a fresh floral and is described as a unisex fragrance with a feminine touch. Notes include violet leaf, mandarin zest, freesia, red poppy buds, iris root, teakwood, musk and amber.
The bottle echoes the angles and cubes of the Rosenthal sculpture, but renders them in a range of triangles displaying a rich array of colors.
Bond no.9 Astor Place will launch in April, and will be available in 50 ($145) and 100 ml ($220).
For Mother’s Day Bond no.9 is releasing a limited special edition of the fragrance. The 100ml bottle will be decorated with Swarovski crystals ($300).
Bond no.9 also wants to recycle your empty glass perfumes bottles! If you have any, bring them to Bond no.9’s boutiques and counters and you’ll receive a refillable pocket spray, free with any purchase.
