My girlfriend recently introduced me to Bond No. 9 fragrances. I know I'm a little late into the game on this one. I practically tried every scent and the sales assistant was so patient with me! I specified that I wanted something "floral & springy & fresh" and about 10 minutes later, my nose fell in love with "West Side." It's the most subtle sweetest scent that hits you like an after taste after you've sniffed in. There was a hint of rose and I am the biggest sucker for anything infused with rose.


West Side: Music to your Nose. You've heard the West Side… Now Smell it. (Bond No. 9’s West Side, that is.) A melodious full-bodied coloratura perfume, with dark-light, high-low, sweet-sharp floral and woody notes.

Notes: Rose, ylang ylang, peony, sandalwood, amber, vanilla, musk

I love that each fragrance has a unique New York inspiration, making the wearer unique as well.

Perfume smells differently on every person because they each play differently on our own personal pheromones, so the chemical reaction will always create a scent that is all our own. The key is to find one that is compatible with you and your personal scent.
