Springtime on Central Park West

It’s March. It’s 78 degrees in NYC. I think we skipped over spring and headed right into summer.  My warm weather fragrance wardrobe is starting to line up on my dresser, alongside my new milky pastel nail polishes.

Today was just about the perfect day to sample Bond No. 9′s latest fragrance, Central Park West.  This lush white floral lifted my spirits and lasted throughout the day.

Top notes – Narcissus, Ylang Ylang, Pepper

Middle notes – Jasmine, Gardenia, Linden Blossom, Iris

Base notes – Vetiver, Oak Moss, Musk

Perfumer – Laurent Le Guernec of IFF

Disclaimer: Bond No. 9 sent a lab bottle for sampling.

Sniffapalooza Reads: Scent of Triumph (and a giveaway!)

For a perfume enthusiast & bibliophile, there’s nothing better than combining the two passions in a fragrant read. That’s why I can’t wait to delve into my Advanced Reader’s Copy of Scent of Triumph that just arrived in the mail today. It’s the debut novel of our good friend, fragrance expert Jan Moran, who is the author of Fabulous Fragrances I and II. And if you’ve ever played around with the Scentsa touch-screen fragrance finder at Sephora, that’s Jan’s creation too!
