New York Nights By Bond No. 9

It’s incandescent. It’s luminescent. It’s New York Nights,
Bond No. 9’s celebration of Manhattan’s evening skyline, ablaze with a riot of colours

Lights & Scents – the two join up in Bond No. 9’s latest eau de parfum New York Nights, which celebrates and even mimics the infusions of colorful lights that are routinely switched on atop a growing number of Manhattan’s skyscrapers every evening. Some of these lights are shimmering incandescents; others are the same now-ubiquitous but still otherworldly luminescent LEDs that glow from computer and smartphone screens.

Why this rainbow of dancing lights? According to the brand’s sources, the answer is simple: New Yorkers work hard during the day. And then, by way of reward, they celebrate just as hard at night. So it’s only natural that the iconic skyscrapers gracing the city that never sleeps decided to join in and dress up in their most vivid colours, punctuating the night-time sky with a riot of colours.

New York Lights - Bond No 9

The after-dark skyline was the inspiration for New York Nights, the eau de parfum, which infiltrates the air with similar elation of a broad-spectrum female urban gourmand. It perfectly captures the undulating glow of New York’s after-dark skyline glow.

Its top notes are unabashedly romantic and floral – jasmine, gardenia and carnation. Then come the warm, seductive heart notes – patchouli and sandalwood, enlivened with a clean floral marine accord. And with the lingering base comes the kicker – coffee infused with caramel, racing the heart and punctuating the New York night. Beautifully structured, this scent leaves in its wake an unexpectedly intriguing creamy-floral trail that’s as light as air.

Both sides of the New York Nights’ bottle display a stylized adaptation of the city after dark. Against a gleaming late-night royal blue background, with a lowering cloud passing by, a multitude of stylized skyscrapers and spires glimmer in boxed-in otherworldly pink, red, green, buttercup yellow, cerulean blue, and gold. Think colourful confetti – think shimmering New York nightlife. Where else in the world would you want to be?
