Holiday at Bond No. 9.

I can dream, can't I? I am not even really into fragrance, but I want these just because... Well, look at how beautiful these bottles are. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!

Holiday ‘08 at Bond No. 9 goes from understated to shamelessly luxurious!

Bleecker Street Bejeweled $395


The choice this holiday for the annual “Swarovski treatment” is Bleecker Street (a gourmand oriental mingling of patchouli, cassis, caramel, woods, and musk).  The limited-edition 100ml lime green-chartreuse-amethyst-gold starburst watercolor flacon is studded, back and front, with a checkerboard pattern of matching crystals—and for good measure, an extra-large crystal front and center.

The Swarovski All-Stars $650

But why stop at one new Swarovski-enhanced flacon?  Bond No.9 has gone overboard and embellished three more of their most coveted scents with the tiniest and most reflective of all the Swarovski stones—five thousand of them per 50ml bottle.  Can you imagine? The pearlized milk glass Eau de New York bottle (citruses-cyclamen-jasmine- vetiver) is studded with diamond-colored aurora borealis stones.  helsea Flowers (peonies-magnolia-rose) is decked with emerald-colored stones.  Chinatown (peach-gardenia-tuberose-sandalwood) features ruby-colored stones.
The Crystallized Amphora $3,500

This is the most luxurious of all choices that here has ever been, I think. This 42 oz amphora vitrine, breathtakingly covered with 16,500 hand-applied platinum Swarovski stones.  Not to forget the bottle top—an elliptical mirror with honeycomb base. Not the addiotion of the Bond No. 9 signature and a handy golden spigot.  If you wonder what is inside, well, that is completely up to you (or the buyer!). You are free to select from Bond No. 9's 32 scents to fill up this beauty.
