Review - Bond No. 9 Central Park West

Bond-No.-9-Central-Park-West-edpI have not had too much experience with the BOND NO. 9 line but I am certainly intrigued by the architecturally appealing bottles. The latest scent addition to the Uptown collection is called Central Park West and pays homage to the City parks as oases of serene greenery scattered all over Manhattan.

When I first looked at this bottle, I thought it looked more like a topping on a cake then an eau de perfum bottle but upon second look, I see that if you purchase the 100ml size, the pink rose-blossom Swarovski accent on the top comes off and can be worn as jewelry. How unique!

This one screams spring with the following:

Top notes: narcissus, ylang ylang, black pepper
Middle notes: gardenia, jasmine, citrus-like linden, orris
Bottom: vetiver, musk, white oak, treemoss.

And it helps that the SO gave this one two thumbs up.
