From Africa to Asia, Europe and beyond, it doesn’t matter where you live: Everyone has their own NYC love story.
New York is and always has been an international phenomenon that means so much to so many people around the world. Think: Global. Diverse. Inclusive. Vibrant. United. Resilient. #StrongerTogether. Throughout its long and wild history, our “little town” has demonstrated time and time again that it’s truly New York Tough. “I honestly never thought that New York would experience a more challenging situation than 9/11,” says Bond No. 9 founder Laurice Rahmé. “We’ve created scents for many great neighborhoods. It feels like the right moment to celebrate the whole city!”
“This scent is abstract. It’s sexy and spicy, just like New York,” says Rahmé. The top explodes with an energizing burst of ginger and pink pepper, which simmers down into a rich rose heart. Finally, the base is lush with cashmeran, sandalwood, and patchouli, lending the composition a luxurious and grounding warmth.
While the world was watching non-stop devastating news in the early days of the pandemic, something truly hopeful occurred in Brazil. Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro’s ever-present symbol, stood solid as the images of flags from around the world were projected onto the statue’s façade in a sign of solidarity among nations affected by the virus. This awesome feat inspired My New York’s own packaging, which consists of a pastiche of various flags; among them: Japan, Great Britain, and Mexico, ranging to the tri-colored Pan-African flag developed in 1920, which represents not so much a territory but a symbolic union of Black people around the world.
