Bond No. 9 Introduces Cooper Square Fragrance
Great, here we go again! That so-called scent of “urban renewal” is now encroaching upon the boundaries of the Lower East Side. Indeed, Bond No. 9 is on the proverbial quest to bottle up and package the city into a bevy of fancy fragrances – “The Scents of New York.”
Jeremiah reported earlier this month that the perfumery created a High Line product and began selling at their brick-and-mortar on Bleecker Street. And now our neighborhood is next on the list. Bond No. 9 will soon tickle the olfactories with the fragrance of Cooper Square. The scent forgoes the putrid piss-puke reality in favor of the new “uber Downtown” – Bowery 2.0.
How much does it cost to smell like gentrification? An eye-popping $230 for 3.4 ounces; or $170 for 1.7 ounces. Just a spritz is all it takes.
If you were to bottle up the Lower East Side, what scents would contribute to the new fragrance? And what would it be called?
