Bond No. 9: Remembrances of West Side

Lest we forget our tried and true gems, here's to bringing back the love for Bond No. 9's West Side. I remember when this first came out, and we all went scrambling to discover the new darling from the Bond family. Rave reviews abounded, and rightfully so.

Well, there it was, sitting prettily on my dresser, but receiving no love or attention for nearly a year. It so happened, last night, I needed a quick little spritz and wanted something not worn as of recent. West Side it was!

How could I have forgotten how completely lovely this fragrance is - and all year 'round. We all have favorites we wear only in cold months, others only for warmer months, but West Side truly is outside the realm of seasonal limitation.

Named for one of America's best loved musicals, this scent, like music, is certainly open to one's own interpretation. It leads with a somewhat floral tone of rose, peony and ylang ylang (some sweetness to it too), rides a rhythmic wave of rich sandalwood and amber, and dries to a warm vanilla, musk. Enchanting!

It's nice to rediscover past loves and enjoy their sensuality and joie de vivre all over again ... ; )
