Greenwich Village by Bond No. 9 Cologne is not Harlem, but we still love it. Released in 2019, Greenwich Village is a unisex oriental fragrance with soft touches of fresh flowers. The scent bursts with intoxicating aromas that manage to perfectly capture the carefree and bohemian vibe of the popular New York City neighborhood in which it’s named after. The top of the scent is formed through notes of leafy cassis, tropical litchi and juicy mandarin orange. Notes of light peony, soft and sweet water lily and rejuvenating jasmine comprise the perfume’s heart. The scent is balanced with base notes of earthy oak moss, ambroxan, sensual musk, comforting vanilla and the chocolate-tinged and nutty aroma of praline.
