West Side Perfume by Bond No. 9, West Side is a floral woody musk women’s and men’s fragrance with rose, floral, vanilla, woody, fresh, and powdery main accords. Created in 2006 by perfumer Michel Almairac of Robertet, this scent starts with head notes of rose, peony, and ylang-ylang, followed by heart notes of amber and sandalwood. Musk and vanilla base notes finish this fragrance. With long-lasting longevity and heavy sillage, this scent wears best on fall days.
Bond No. 9 was founded by cosmetics and fragrance industry veteran Laurice Rahme in 2003. This brand is a niche perfume house under the Laurice & Co. parent company and creates scents inspired by New York City’s landmarks and neighborhoods. The brand’s name comes from the address of the headquarters and main boutique at 9 Bond Street. Rahme had previously worked at Lancome, Annick Goutal, and Creed before establishing her own brand, which has six boutiques in the United States and is sold in upscale department stores worldwide.
