If pressed, one could make the argument that a New York City neighborhood doesn’t really exist until Bond No. 9 immortalizes it in an eau de parfum. To date, the fragrance house has distilled spots such as Central Park (bergamot, lime blossom), Chinatown (thankfully more peach blossom than dried fish) and Astor Place (mandarin zest, red poppy buds) into colorful star-shaped bottles. Their newest men’s scent pays tribute to the hotel bars, construction workers and former beatnik population of the Bowery’s Cooper Square with notes of cognac, timberwood and patchouli. Spicy!
