The scent, in a royal blue bottle displaying both the iconic I Love New York logo and Bond No. 9’s token logo, is a masterly blend that starts out with spirited basil, lime, and coriander top-notes. In other words, here we have a sensuous celebration of derring-do. Then it segues into its rich and generous heart of lavender, sage, and grapefruit blossom and a more animal-like, lingering power-base of tree moss, musk, and ambroxan (i.e., amber on steroids). When negotiating Manhattan’s steel and glass canyons and soaring skyscrapers, heading for a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden or an auto show at Albany’s Times Union Center, canoeing around Saranac Lake, or honoring baseball’s greats at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown - this is the scent to wear.
