Bond No.9, the perfumer known for naming their scents after various New York neighborhoods, is about to get high...lined. To accompany their High Line-inspired fragrance, they've signed a lease for their fifth New York City store, which will be located at 863 Washington Street, right near the edge of the West Side's elevated pad.
The boutique, home to the "world's first railroad perfume" consists of 1,000 square feet (plus 25 feet of sidewalk frontage), has a ten year term, and costs $400 per square foot. And if it's anything like the High Line fragrance, the whole place will smell of wildflowers, green grasses, and imported sea moss (to naturally evoke the Hudson River's proximity).—Yale Breslin
