Bond no. 9 With their glitzy bottles and clever names, every scent from Bond is truly fun and exciting. However, it is “Chinatown,” with it’s Swarovski studded limited edition bottle, which has given us a obsession on this wild fragrance line. This sensual feminine scent is a mélange of peach, peony, and gardenia and is dedicated to Chinatown. Puredistance Puredistance I can be described as dazzling and stunning, luxurious and rich. The fragrance was produced by Perfumer Annie Buzantian at the fragrance house Firmenich. Puredistance brings together two opposite elements: coolness and warmth. The perfume opens with a top note of fresh Tangerine blossom blended with a hint of Cassis. The natural scent is complemented with Neroli Bigarade and crisp watery nuances. The heart of the fragrance warms to a classy, modern blend of Magnolia, Rose Wardia, Jasmine and natural Mimosa, before finally settling softly into the rich classical notes of sweet Amber, Vetiver and White Musk. Kilian Kilian Hennessy, perfumer and heir to a extended line of cognac makers, has launched his first joint effort for his lavish line of fragrances. Joining forces with painter Sophie Matisse, the duo have released 50 hand painted bottles and boxes, to carry whichever Kilian scent you choose. Each bottle design is completely dissimilar from the other, and is numbered and stamped with the artists engraving. Packaged in Kilian’s signature silk lined black lacquer boxes, this little bottle of luxury not only smells succulent but stands out amongst the others as more than just a collectible. Silver Mountain Water The House of Creed has been for many years one of the best kept secrets of the perfume world. Of their inclusive line of scents, Silver Mountain Water is by far the much loved global connoisseurs. Inspired by the invigorating crispness of mountain air and the founder’s love of alpine skiing, with touches of Mandarin, Tea, Black Currant, Musk, and Ambergris, this scent is perfect for man or woman.
