When we think luxury perfume, we think Bond No. 9.
Everything from the bottle design, to the exquisite scents inside are so well thought out and unlike any others.
With the holidays coming up, they've released some new gifts that definitely are on the splurge side...big time.
But oh so fabulous...
The choice this holiday for their annual “Swarovski treatment” is Bleecker Street (a gourmand oriental mingling of patchouli, cassis, caramel, woods, and musk). The limited-edition 100ml lime green-chartreuse-amethyst-gold starburst watercolor flacon is studded, back and front, with a checkerboard pattern of matching crystals—and for good measure, an extra-large crystal front and center. Can we just tell you how gorge this scent is?
But why stop at one new Swarovski-enhanced flacon? They’ve gone overboard and embellished three more of their most coveted scents with the tiniest and most reflective of all the Swarovski stones—five thousand of them per 50ml bottle. The pearlized milk glass Eau de New York bottle (citruses-cyclamen-jasmine-vetiver) is studded with diamond-colored aurora borealis stones. Chelsea Flowers (peonies-magnolia-rose) is decked with emerald-colored stones. Chinatown (peach-gardenia-tuberose-sandalwood) features ruby-colored stones. Can you say posh?
The Crystallized Amphora ($3,500)
An unbelievable show stopper: Their outsized 42 oz amphora vitrine, breathtakingly covered with 16,500 hand-applied platinum Swarovski stones. Not to forget the bottle top—an elliptical mirror with honeycomb base. And while we were at it, we added the Bond No. 9 signature and a handy golden spigot. Contents? Your choice among their 32 scents. This bedazzlement comes in a white patent leather gift case, also adorned with crystals.
