Bond No. 9 New York sent me their newest fragrance to review. Bond No. 9’s perfumes are inspired by New York City, and the newest fragrance is inspired by Central Park West. Central Park West is inspired by the tree lined streets and vintage apartment buildings on the Upper West Side. The fragrance notes start with narcissus, ylang ylang, and pepper. Then in the middle you have orris, jasmine, linden, and gardenia. To round off the scents, the notes end with white oak, vetiver, and musk.
The reason I am in love with this scent is because it smells light and fresh, but the pepper and musk give it this dark bite. I love dark scents. Light scents usually make my head hurt, but because of the blend of dark notes this scent is very doable for lovers of dark, warm scents. I can’t wait to wear this. I have to hide it from my mom because she wants to steal it from me. Central Park West launches March 15 and will be sold at Bond No. 9’s five New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and bondno9.com. Price: 100ml, $250; 50ml, $180; body silk, $130; candle, $110; shower gel, $75.

Well the sudden cold snap back home and the cold snap here in NYC, combined with the humid rain, has really done a number on my body. I just stayed in bed the rest of the afternoon. I need to rest my body up. Continue Reading
Hey Everyone! Fashion Week starts today, and I will be going to the IFB Conference to learn how to make my blog better from the inside out! Last night I went to a tweet-up with fellow bloggers, stylists, designers, and other industry people. I can’t wait to show you the clothes this designer I met made. They are really great! I will try to blog from my phone tomorrow. We will see how great this WordPress for BB app is. No promises though.
Here is a little something to hold you over until I can edit the blog properly.
I’m sooo excited! If you have been reading my blog for the past year and some change, you would know that I love NYC, and I plan on moving there. I also told you guys that one of my goals is to go to New York Fashion Week!
Tomorrow I leave on a super early flight to go to New York City. I may not be going to many shows, but I will report from my graduate school’s fashion show. They are they only fashion school in the country to show at the tents. You can view the live stream on September 10th, 2010 at 5 pm PST. I will also visit two different showrooms. I am also trying to meet up with some of my blogger friends, and I will attend the IFB Emerging Influence Conference. I am making the most of my week.
