Since it was founded in 2003 the New York-based perfume brand Bond No. 9 has garnered a loyal following, not only from US clientele but also across the Atlantic in London. Much of this UK following can be attributed to the place Bond No. 9 has long had in London’s iconic department store Harrods. Now, in addition to offering Bond No. 9 scents within the main store, Harrods has launched a dedicated Bond No. 9 boutique within the exclusive Salon de Parfums.
In this lavish space, shoppers will be given the VIP treatment as they select their ideal fragrance from the collection of scents inspired by the neighborhoods of New York, as well as being led through the boutique’s custom blending service and the brand’s unique Swarovski on Demand bespoke service in which bottles of Bond No. 9 perfume are customized with Swarovski crystals.
In addition to these bespoke services, the sixth-floor boutique will offer eight new Bond No. 9 scents, which are all exclusive to the Salon de Parfums. Commenting on the new boutique, Harrods beauty director Annalise Ford says: “We are thrilled to welcome the Bond No.9 boutique to our newly expanded Salon de Parfums at Harrods. We are truly excited by the number of bespoke services Bond No.9 will be offering in their space, which is their first UK boutique and exclusive to Harrods.’’
