Bond No. 9 New York Oud is a modern Middle Eastern marriage of oud, roses and wood. Most scents provide a pleasant fragrant background to the day but New York Oud is an experience in which you can languish in Arabian splendor. This latest release from Bond No. 9 feels like crushed velvet, warm skin, rose petals and satin pillows. It is a potent perfume that has quickly become one of my favorites in the Bond No. 9 catalog. Plums, oranges and saffron make a fleeting, sweet, warm introduction to a building crescendo of roses and oud. The addition of orris and patchouli in the heart add a calm, beautiful, glowing backdrop. One of my favorite aspects of the fragrance is how the oud opens the rose pushes the scent from the skin to envelop the wearer. The finishing touch of honey and musk add depth and sensuality making the scent something that I want to touch and taste. Longevity is one of NY Oud’s strong suits in that you can measure it in terms of days instead of hours. In my experience, a single spray can last almost two days on skin and over a week on fabric and clothing.
New York Oud is a soul-deep honeyed kiss of a rose embraced by an oud enigma. A kiss that lingers for day and resurfaces in memories inspiring desire for more. A sensual dream of Arabia in a cityscape with rose gardens and forests of precious woods. Notes are: Top: Red plum, saffron, orange zest. Heart: Oud, rose, orris, patchouli. Base: Musk, honey, vetiver Reviewer’s Experience: Sprays: 1, Longevity: 24-36 hours, Sillage: Moderate to high, File under: Modern Oud
