Bond No. 9

The storied New York-based perfume and cologne house Bond no. 9 has created a series of fragrances in Swarovski-bejeweled bottles.

The perfumers are well-known for their exotic fragrances that pay homage to New York City’s neighborhoods. Bond no. 9 seeks to pay respects to the city’s famous Chinatown, the West Village’s Bleecker St, Bryant Park, NoHo (North of Houston), Chelsea and other neighborhoods, which I’m personally very familiar with.

The Swarovski crystal bottles sell for prices between $395 to $3,500, which is what the delicate-looking amphora with the spigot on the last image in the gallery costs.

Money crunch and recessions be damned!
