Scent Event: Bond No. 9 Madison Square Park

One of our store's most sought-after collections is our finely edited assembly of Bond No. 9 fragrances. While we will always have a place in our hearts for the ever-popular Scent of Peace and the masculine magnificence of Wall Street, our staff and customers alike tend to fall head over heels for the latest scents. Such is the case with Madison Square Park, a gorgeous and grassy floral that launched in April and has come to be known by Bond lovers as "springtime in a bottle."

This super-bright scent starts with the tempting topnotes of grape hyacinth, huckleberry and prairie dropseed grass, a combination that gives off a fun and flirty vibe right up front. These frisky, vibrant florals lead into the much calmer base notes of teakwood and vetiver root for an overall scent that takes itself a surprisingly more seriously than it did at first sniff. The bold colors of the bottle perfectly capture the brilliant spirit of the scent inside, and for an added dose of whimsy, the large bottle even features a detachable rose-blossom bracelet. And while it will more likely wind up on the arm of your 7-year-old niece than become a permanent piece of your jewelry collection, we're not opposed to the idea of arming even your fragrances with accessories!

The punchy personality of this particular Bond bottle has allowed it to garner quite the fan following. At our "Spring Scent Event," we asked a selection of our favorite shoppers to vote on the newest scents, and Madison Square Park secured itself the top spot early on. As the winning fragrance, we ordered it for the store and are proud to now have it in stock! ($250 for the 3.3 oz and $175 for the 1.7 oz).

Of course, we're not the only ones to be crazy about this covetable perfume - it was featured in this month's Allure magazine as an "Editor's Favorite"

Drop by the Troc to catch a whiff of this new scent before it flies off the shelves, and if you've already had the chance to smell it, let us know what you think in the comments below!
