Bond No. 9 Brooklyn

Bushwick based artist Chris Kyung: Pizza #7, 2006

Gawker just ran part of the press release for the new Bond no. 9 Brooklyn scent. Apparently Brooklyn is unisex "with a decidedly masculine attitude." I love it. The notes are all over the place, with grapefruit and juniper up top, a la Snoop Dog's Gin and Juice. They must be conjuring up the west coast of Brooklyn with this one.

As one of my professors once barked at a visiting speaker who had somehow confused a number of the new York schools, "Bronx? Brooklyn? What's the difference? Coney Island, Riverdale? Same thing really!"

Actual Coney Island circa 2007

Which is my way of saying that I rather liked Bond's Coney Island scent. It smelled like cheap yard long margaritas; neon lime syrup, tequilla, mesquite, grilled hot dog buns and boardwalk.

Fine stuff if you ask me. The new scent seems to call up the Brooklyn Boatnic Gardens a la the father daughter team at Eau de Brooklyn. Brooklyn is so many things I suppose. It's also one of the first music videos I'd ever seen on NYC Public television.

The Brooklyn bottle might just turn out to be my favorite bottle design from Bond No. 9 yet. I'm looking forward to seeing it up close and personal.
