The Post asked some random New Yorkers about whether they would wear Bond No. 9's new High Line fragrance. Answers: "'Gee, I hope it's not based on some of the dog poo that lies around here a lot of the time,' said Gretta Baker-Allen, 27. An inspired Thomas Verlofski, 24, said, 'Maybe I'll design an after-shave based on the smell of the public toilets in Penn Station. I'm sure that would be a best-seller.'" Let's hope nobody tells these two that Bond No. 9 also makes a scent called Coney Island. [NYP; Previously]
