One Thousand Scents

Thursday, February 26, 2009


I like Bond No. 9's Brooklyn, not consumed by it, but it's nice and I'd wear it. The bottle, though: killer. Really amazing.

But apparently there were some complaints (I guess Brooklyn is not comprised entirely of graffiti artists, just as Chinatown is not completely filled with cherry blossoms, or something), so Bond No. 9 is having a contest: design your own!

The rules:

→ Create your design to fit within the outline of the Bond No. 9 superstar flacon and to include our circular “token” logo.

→ Any style, figurative or abstract, is fine with us.

→ Inspiration can come from anywhere in Brooklyn—DUMBO, Park Slope, Flatbush, Canarsie, Midwood, Bay Ridge, et al.—or from the very idea of Brooklyn.

→ Any medium is okay: oil, acrylic, watercolor, house paint, pastel, crayon, Magic Marker, makeup—even a ballpoint pen or pencil will do.

→ Completed designs should be submitted to or Bond No. 9, 9 Bond Street, New York, NY 10012 by March 31, 2009.

After our two winners are chosen in early April, we’ll put the victorious designs into production, with the winner’s names displayed on the bottles. Each winner will also receive one bottle of Brooklyn per month for a year.

Did you hear that? A bottle a month for a year. Gifts! Ebay! Dousing yourself with expensive fragrance! A show of largesse to a fragrance blogger!

The blank is supposedly at their website (, but I couldn't find the damned thing, so here it is.

Click on it to enlarge it. Print it. Get creative. Colour it. And win something nice!
