Bond No. 9 to launch ‘Harrods for Her’ and ‘Harrods for Him’ fragrances
Bond No. 9 introduced a range of range of Swarovski-studded designs by the end of last year, and now, the firm has informed Basenotes of their upcoming launch – “Harrods for Her” and “Harrods for Him.” So, they have tried the scent of London this time. Both the new fragrances are created by renowned perfumer Laurent Le Guernec. Harrods for Her is an eau de parfum that contains notes of neroli, mandarin, wild chamomile, tuberose, clary sage, nutmeg, amber, leather, sandalwood and vetiver. The Bond flacon used for the fragrance features a gold-on-gold abstracted pattern of the Harrods “H” and the Bond No. 9 token logo overlaid in Harrods green with gold lettering. This fragrance will be also in a limited edition Swarovski crystal encrusted bottle. On the other hand, the Harrods for Him contains notes of lavender, violet leaf, sandalwood, musk, rhubarb leaf, star anise, chamomile, and pimento leaves. The pattern here is gold-on-Harrods-green. Bond No. 9 told Basenotes…
