Bond No.9

Chinatown - Limited Edition Swarowski


- +

The top notes of this dynamic and seductive perfume are a veritable cascade of peach blossoms - a mystical fruit from Chinese mythology, which Taoists consider an elixir of life.

The heart notes are a disturbing bouquet that brings together different cultural suggestions in a transversal way: the peony (known as Sho Yo, or The Most Beautiful, the flower that in Chinese culture symbolizes love, luxury and pleasure), mixed with the sweet fragrance of gardenia (the flower that Billie Holiday loved to wear in her hair) and the sensual tuberose (known in the western world as the Lady of the Night), and finally the patchouli, which adds a pungent note to the floral ones.

The persistent base notes are cardamom (an ancient oriental spice, long used in cooking as a condiment) and dark woods (which recall the scent of Chinese boxes with lacquered inlays).

Irresistibly lush, as is the perfume itself, is the bottle of Chinatown - the superstar bottle of Bond No. 9, decorated in the round with plum blossoms as you might find them woven on satin cheongsam.

Chinatown - Limited Edition Swarowski. From New York, the limited edition 5-star perfume with a bottle decorated with Swarovski crystals.

The magic of Chinatown in a precious and exclusive collector's bottle.
