Bond No. 9 celebrates Liberty Island

New York-centric Bond No. 9 has a summertime tradition launching fresh and breezy island and beach scents. Coney Island was the first. Then came Fire Island, Montauk, Hamptons and Shelter Island. But for summer 2016, we take a different tack and pay homage to a destination island of a totally different sort. Arriving in time for Independence Day, the brand is now introducing Liberty Island - the world’s most famous island, visited by four million freedom-lovers a year.

Liberty Island is a joyous eau de parfum honouring the hallowed 12-acre tract of land in Upper New York Bay that is home to none other than the crown-wearing, torch-bearing, 151-foot (46 metres) tall, Franco-American Statue of Liberty itself.

The eau de parfum is a fruity-floral summertime blend, starting with citrussy bergamot and mandarin notes, along with tangy blackcurrant. Then comes the heart notes, orange blossom absolute and jasmine. These segue into a lingering base with a high percentage of heady musk mingled with sugary marshmallow.

Bond No. 9’s Liberty Island superstar bottle is rendered in shining, semitransparent cobalt blue. Randomly strewn on its surface is a network of white stars - co-opted from both the Star-Spangled Banner and Miss Liberty’s irregularly star-shaped base.

Fragrance Trends: The impact of the mineral

A solid, inorganic and crystallized substance, minerals are derived from a natural geological process. In perfume- making, minerality is a subjective concept because there is no mineral family strictly speaking.
