Every summer Bond No.9 creates a fragrance that highlights the hot spot for that season – this year highlighting Montauk. Bond No.9 goes where the New Yorkers go, and sets the trends for around the country! Montauk is the 5th in the Bond No.9 series of Warhol collectible fragrances and the bottle design displays Andy Warhol’s iconic Sunsets, dating back from 1972 (one year after he discovered Montauk). His Sunsets series consisted of 632 unique screen prints but for this project, they chose FOUR designs from his collection to feature.
I am super excited to try this scent. I love Bond No.9, but by far my favorite of their fragrances are the beach ones. (Which is kind of hilarious because I actually hate the beach. The sand that gets everywhere in my car, the fact that I always get sunburned no matter how much SPF I put on, the fact that salt water makes my eyes burn... I can count on one hand the amount of times I've laid out on the beach in Los Angeles in the years I've lived there). And yet, Fire Island and Hamptons are my favorite two Bond scents with Coney Island a close third, so I'm sure I'm going to become obsessed with Montauk when it launches on Memorial Day. And seriously, how stunning are those bottles? I want to collect them all and keep them in a place of honor on my dresser because I feel like they'd cheer me up when I'm getting ready since I'm definitely not a morning person. Just another reason to be excited for Memorial Day!
