If you have been following my blog at all, you may know that I am not fond of fragrance. I am turned off by many, but do have a few - only a few - favorites in my small collection. But my small collection will soon be bigger!
I have just discovered Bond No. 9.
You have heard the beauty bloggers raving about this "Making Scents of New York" line of perfume and candles for a while now, and I feel privileged that I got to take a sniff at a few.
Fire Island is the latest creation of Laurice Rahme, the founder of Bond No. 9.
You see, all of the fragrances in the Bond No. 9 collection pay homage to the great city of New York. And Laurice knows that New Yorkers go in droves to Fire Island in the summer time - dreaming to be lying naked on the beach - surrounded the scent of sun over the skin. This is what her basis was for this beautiful scent. She combined it with the spicy-sweet scent of vintage Euro-bronzing oils and you have it - Fire Island.
In perfumer speak, the perfume is a blend of the following: Top Notes - Cardamom and Ozone; Middle Notes - Neroli and White Musk; Base Notes - Skin Musk, Tuberose, and Patchouli.
In inexperienced perfume buyer speak, I love it. It is so soft while being so "there". The scent is not over powering on me. I can definitely smell the musk and neroli - the rest is foreign to me (as I said, I am very new to this) but very inviting and warm, like the summer sun on the white sandy beach.
I totally get it!
I am sampling The Scent of Peace now, and will let you know all about that soon.
Be sure to stop by the newly created Bond. No. 9 website for more information. It is vibrant and overall fantastic.
