More details on Bond no. 9′s next fragrance release, Scent of Peace:
The Scent of Peace, which was created by Michel Almairac of Robertet, features top notes of grapefruit and black currant, middle notes of lily of the valley and hedione and base notes of cedarwood.
Look for it in May. Later this year, look for new fragrances for Fire Island (June) and West Side Story (November). Other Bond no. 9 plans for this year include boutiques in Harlem and Chelsea; in 2007 expect a new color cosmetics line and fragrances for Astor Place, Sutton Place, Union Square, and Brooklyn.

And here are more details on the fragrances from the new boutique Le Labo:
Bergamote 22 for men is by perfumer Daphne Bugey, and features bergamot, petitgrain, grapefruit, amber, musk and vetiver.
Rose 31 for men is also by perfumer Daphne Bugey, and features Grasse rose, cumin, olibanum, cedar, amber, gaïac wood, cistus, and animalic notes.
Neroli 36, a unisex fragrance by nose Daphne Bugey, has neroli, rose, musk, mandarin orange (slightly aldehydic), jasmine and vanilla.
Fleur D’Oranger 27 is a unisex fragrance by perfumer Françoise Caron, and features orange blossom, musk, bergamot, petit grain and lemon.
Patchouli 24 by Annick Menardo has patchouli, birch, and vanilla. Per Le Labo, “Even though it is vital to the olfactory shock this perfume generates, Patchouli is not easy to detect in this formula.”
Jasmin 17 for women is by perfumer Maurice Roucel and has jasmine, musk, sandalwood and vanilla.
Ciste 18 for women is by Maurice Roucel, and is described as “a strong concentration of oriental notes, with animal intonations of civet and castoreum”. Update: this fragrance has been renamed Labdanum 18.
Ambrette 9 is for babies, and is a light combination of ambrette grain, citrus and fruit.
Le Labo plans to launch a website shortly, and will have online ordering (and a sample program) by May.
