Bond No. 9 High Line is the world's first railroad perfume

Since when do new neighborhoods arise in New York? Hardly ever. After all, this city is already jam-packed with just about every kind of community imaginable. So when a new part of town appears, you can be sure we're in for something completely different. Like our latest and most dynamic neighborhood, the High Line which serves as the subject of Bond No. 9's Spring 2010 eau de parfum.

An improbable aerial walkway lined with concrete planks and railroad tracks, landscaped with meadows, wetlands, and wildflowers, the High Line hovers 30 feet above street level as it meanders along its route from the Meatpacking District to the former 34th Street rail yards sometimes bridging its way through buildings along the way.

We at Bond No. 9, purveyors of New York neighborhood fragrances, have long been enamored of the High Line and its perfume possibilities. A scent that conveys a whiff of urban wildflowers and a hint of industrial grit, with bits of Tenth Avenue energy and Chelsea gallery style added to the mix this intrigued us. So we set about creating Bond No. 9 High Line.

The result is an androgynous floral-marine bouquet, contrasting the hardy flowers and greens that grow along the High Line's route with intriguing notes from far away. The scent starts off with a prairie grazing weed—purple love grass—mixed with citrusy bergamot and zesty Indian rhubarb. The perfume's floral heart is red-leaf rose, Lady Jane tulips, and grape hyacinth. Its lingering base notes combine bur oak—from the sheltering tree that thrives here—with imported sea moss, to evoke the Hudson River's proximity, along with musk and teakwood, to remind us that Bond No. 9 High Line is a metro-perfume.

Bond No. 9 has joined forces with and became sponsors of Friends of the High Line.

Appearing on-counter in March 2010, Bond No. 9 High Line will be sold at our four New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue and bondno9.com.
