Bond No. 9 covers ever more NYC territory by launching perfumes for Cooper Square and Washington Square Park. So what does Cooper Square smell like? Something a little more masculine, with "cognac and juniper berry; heart notes are lavender, myrrh, olibanum and patchouli." Washington Square will lean more feminine, and this scent follows the High Line as the second collab between Bond and the Parks Department. The scents won't hit the shelves until this fall, so you'll have to wait a bit before getting to smell like the Cooper Union. [WWD, subscrip req'd]
