Oud To Saffron
Bond No 9 is launching a third oud based fragrance for Valentines Day. This oud is less masculine than the previous incarnations. It begins with a rich plummy top note followed by a truly spectacular saffron note. The saffron note just "sings" and is lightly peppered with orange zest.
The mid-intermission stars the oud note. This oud is thick and syrupy. It is mixed with a nosegay of roses, rooty orris, and a dirty patchouli. The earthy dry down is musky with smooth honey and vetiver. Each note is uncluttered and perfectly orchestrated. All the notes are given time to shine and shimmer!
The star bottle is gunmetal grey with glints of gold. The inspiration was the New York streetscape at twilight. Bond 9 New York Oud will retail for $310 and will appear at Saks counters and Bond stores in February 2011. This might be the perfect Valentine scent gift for your sweetheart!
