Freedom in a Bottle

New York, New York, the place where the city never sleeps, the pizza melts in your mouth, and the Rockefeller center and Times Square are every tourists’ dream. Then of course, the place that holds the world’s most celebrated symbol of freedom—the torch-bearing Statue of Liberty.

New York-based perfume house, Bond No. 9 is launching yet another great scent that celebrates the world’s most famous island and symbol of freedom. In keeping with the inspiration behind the scent, the company named their new summer 2016 scent, “Liberty Island.”

New You caught up with Bond No. 9 to find out more details about the upcoming perfume:

1)  What was the reason for pairing the particular notes of the perfume with the tribute to the Statue of Liberty in mind?

Liberty Island, the Eau de Parfum, is a joyous, sparkling, and fruity-floral summertime blend that, in keeping with democratic precepts, is wearable by women and men alike.

2) Why celebrate the symbol of freedom this year?

This year, the election will take place.  It is a nice way to commemorate the Statue of Liberty – a symbol of sovereignty.

3) What is the mission statement behind Bond No.9?

Bond No. 9 was launched as an homage to a great city which is none other than — could be no other than — New York. The Bond No. 9 collection of women’s, men’s, and unisex Eaux de Parfum, has a dual mission: restore artistry to perfumery, and mark every New York neighborhood with a scent of its own.  Each fragrance represents a specific downtown, midtown, or uptown locale, or a city-wide sensibility. With new introductions every season, Bond No. 9 infuses the island of Manhattan with scents.

Liberty Isalnd will hit stores in June 2016. The price of the fragrance ranges from $220 to $295, and you’ll be able to find it at Bond No.9 New York Boutiques, Saks Fifth Avenue, select Bloomingdales, Harrods UK, and www.bondno9.com
