Bond No. 9 launches a new trio of New York-inspired Arabian perfume

The original Dubai trio of Bond No. 9 scents (Indigo, Emerald, and Ruby) debuted in 2015 as a one-shot and was an instant success. The brand therefore launched Citrine, Amethyst, and Amber. Like the Gulf State metropolis inspiring these scents, they mingle the ancient with the ultra-new: centuries’-old Eastern essences (exotic resin …musk …tropical spices) with ultra-contemporary fragrance notes (seaweed…raspberry … plum).

Now the debut of Dubai III is turning Bond No. 9 Dubai into a full-fledged collection:

- Dubai Black Sapphire holds an obvious masculine appeal, yet has a mellowness that will compliment an assertively feminine woman. Its top notes—citrusy neroli blended with spicy-mellow saffron and beeswax—are followed by the only floral, resplendent Turkish rose, surrounded by balsamic gurjun, resinous cedar wood, and a hit of pungent pepper. The scent dries down with incense-rich oud and Siam benzoin, soothing sandalwood, cinnamon-like tolu balm, and earthy vetiver.

- Dubai Jade blends sparkling florals with languid incense. Starting off with violet leaves, tart raspberry, and warming cumin, it segues into floral heart - rose, lily, and jasmine - played out against crisp, clean cedar wood. A mélange of syrupy base notes - resinous amber and ambrette, sensual musk, oud, and leather-like birch tar - add a powerful resonance.

- Dubai Garnet. A romantic floral bouquet starts with a brisk wakeup call: citrusy bergamot, musky blackberry, licorice-like cardamom, invigorating seaweed, and pink pepper. Rose is a major mid-note, accompanying magnolia, jasmine, and lavender, along with succulent plum and spicy cumin. Classic base notes—musk, amber, myrrh and vetiver—give staying power, while oak moss adds a creamy-soft hint of chypre.

Retail Price: 100ml, $550
