After creating a scent for a neighborhood that technically has yet to exist, Bond No. 9 has turned its attention to Queens. The New York-based fragrance company's latest venture is a unisex scent dedicated to the borough, according to WWD, with packaging that pays homage to the World's Fair.
However, what's in the bottle was actually inspired by Queen Catherine of Braganza, for whom King Charles II of England named the borough way back in the day. Expect to see the bottle on shelves in Bond's own stores—as well as a visual display at Saks Fifth Avenue—starting September 18th.
