Happy International Day For Monuments & Sites! (Yes, I had to dig for that one.)

We're celebrating with our usual open thread poll: talk about anything you like — the perfume you’re wearing today, the monument or site you wish you were visiting right now, anything.

Or, ask a question about fragrance, then see if anyone else has asked a question that you can answer…

Bond no. 9 Park Avenue South ~ fragrance review http://www.nstperfume.com/2015/04/16/bond-no-9-park-avenue-south-fragrance-review/ http://www.nstperfume.com/2015/04/16/bond-no-9-park-avenue-south-fragrance-review/#comments Thu, 16 Apr 2015 18:53:47 +0000 http://www.nstperfume.com/?p=126489 Bond no. 9 Park Avenue South

Niche line Bond no. 9 recently launched Park Avenue South, the brand's latest fragrance inspired by a New York City neighborhood. Park Avenue South is "an eau de parfum celebrating the city’s newest, most scintillating and most happening street...[and] the neighborhood’s fresh, flirtatious, insouciant spirit" with notes of green apple, peach, jasmine, musk and dry amber.

The promotional materials for Park Avenue South describe this particular bit of Manhattan as "New York's latest happening turf, full of condos with pools, of-the-moment restaurants, chic hotels, and frenzied real estate panache." That sounds like a part of town I'd avoid at all costs. I suppose Bond is latching onto this strip's identity as an alternative to the old-money style of upper Park Avenue, which Bond commemorated back in 2003 with notes of delicate white florals...
