Got a big date coming up? Naturally you want to smell like jackhammer debris and soldering iron residue. For a measly $200, you’re in luck.
Perfumery Bond No. 9 has released its latest neighborhood-themed perfume, Hudson Yards. Hudson Yards, of course, being the largest development in New York since Rockefeller Center and still under construction.
“This is something we’ve never done before, because we are blessing a neighborhood that is still being built,” Douglas “The Bond Guy” Marshall says in the Hudson Yards video review.
Hudson Yards, first reported by DNAinfo, is just one of a multitude of neighborhood-centric scents released by No.9. The company also boasts the “spring time wake-up call” Central Park West and a “sultry. mouth-watering” China Town, among others.
The Hudson Yards variety has notes of “wet Petals of Lily of the Valley, sparkling freesia, pink pepper oil, peony buds, rose oil oulgaria, vibrant lychee, orange flower absolute, iris absolute, white ray of muslk.” It is supposed to invoke springtime and new beginnings and all that good stuff.
In the perfume’s video review below, the scent was described as everything from “Soft, pretty and sexy” to “my great-grandmother’s rose bush in Jamaica.” So there you go, smell like flowers, spring, and that woman’s great-grandmother’s rose bush. In Jamaica.
