New Bond 9 for Body News

Bond 9 has finally released their new body cremes. I am one of the many who have been anxiously awaiting these, and they sound lush( and just look at those jars). I know whats going on my Christmas list now, well if I can wait that long.

Here's the details:
Introducing Bodies by Bond.
Starting with 24/7 New York Body Silk.
Bond No. 9 Reinvents Skin Smoothing.

Bond No. 9, perfumer to the City of New York, is proud to announce a brand new departure that combines skin-scenting with skin pampering. Introducing 24/7 New York Body Silk--

7 unspeakably lush creams that mark the start of our long-awaited program of sumptuous body smoothers that simultaneously soothe the skin in the city that never sleeps.

Arriving in stores this August, 24/7 New York Body Silk represents Part I of Bond No. 9’s multi-phase body series. This is a cream so startling in its emolliency that it will instantly entice perfumed smoothness everywhere, including those problem areas, elbows, shoulders, knees—body parts you’d formerly given up on. What’s more, 24/7 Body Silk is so rich in perfume it will leave subtle scent traces on your lingerie and bed linen. Hmm ….

Phases II and III? You’ve got to wait until November for the arrival of 24/7 New York Body Lotion; and coming in January 2008: 24/7 New York Body Oil and 24/7 New York Hair Perfume.

For years now, our customers have been cajoling and importuning us every which way for skin products to compliment our New York-centric eaux de parfum. But you know us …. Bond No. 9 wouldn’t even think of doing just another bath and body line. If we were going to anoint the skin, we wanted to do so with advanced technology. After all, ours is the world’s most demanding skincare city, a unique urban microclimate that contends with extremes ranging from tropical summers to skittish warm-and-cold winters and monsoon-like thunder storms—to say nothing of air pollution, bus exhaust fumes (unlike any others in the world) rampant skin-drying laser peels, and bug-bites from who knows where.

So we spent no less than two years finding precisely the advanced formulas that would convey (and even enhance) the beauty of our scents, while at the same time coddling precious New York skin. We even chose a specialty skincare developer, who devised our own patented high-dose silicone formula that provides a rich but invisible protective coating.

24/7 Body Silk will be initially available in these Bond No. 9 scents:
Eau de New York. A sense-awakening fruity-floral-green blend of neroli, white lily, gardenia, and skin musk, whose scent molecules positively whiz through the air.

Nuits de Noho. An irreverent nighttime gourmand blend of jasmine, creamy vanilla, and sheer patchouli. Has the impact of a shot of icy vodka.

Chinatown. Superpower meets Supercity in a sultry, mouthwatering East-West bouquet of peach blossoms, tuberose, and patchouli, with cardamom thrown in for spice.

The Scent of Peace. Détente in the form of a sparkling citrussy-woody-musky mélange of grapefruit, black current, lily of the valley, and cedarwood.

Bryant Park. Leading-edge fragrance fashion: a rose-patchouli-lily-rhubarb concoction with pink pepper added for dissonance.

West Side. An undulating coloratura blend of dark-light, high-low, sweet-sharp, and floral-woody notes, including rose, ylang ylang, peony, amber, serious vanilla, and musk.

Chelsea Flowers. An exuberant fresh-picked bouquet of peonies, tulips, hyacinth, magnolia, and rose, with vetiver, sandalwood, and musk added for a hint of insolence.

Launch Date: August 2007
Suggested Retail Price: $105 for a 6.8 fl. oz jar
Available at all four Bond No. 9 stores in New York,, Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide and
