When the elegance of New York City meets the charm of the Middle East it creates the new collection of Bond no 9, The Dubai line. This is a review of Dubai Emerald by Bond NO.9 .
The Bond NO.9 website describes the collection as “a new collection of modernistic New York-inspired Arabian perfumes.” And Dubai Emerald is a true icon of this collection.
As the name suggests you should be expecting an Arabian scent. The perfume is leathery and woody. It has a warm spicy scent mixed with floral (rose) notes.
rose, gurjum, balsam
patchouli, sandalwood, amber, cypriol, leather
Reviews on other websites:
“This fragrance is amazing – strong, long-lasting, with excellent projection, beautiful and exotic. Similar to New York Oud, but less sweet and much more dramatic. Likewise, somewhat Reminiscent of Kilian’s Gold Oud, though the elements differ, and Emerald definitely standing out as much more crisp. Having tried all 3 exclusives, this is by far my favorite. I purchased almost immediately.”

B9 by Bond No.9 is a fairly new fragrance from the house of Bond No.9. The inspiration for the name and scent of this perfume comes from the brand’s first store address in New York, 9 Bond Street. The perfume bottle showcases the new logo for their brand, it is star shaped, the signature look for Bond No.9, and, purple colored. This unisex fragrance is very fresh, fruity and very long lasting.
The Fragrance is a well-balanced mixture of the following notes:
Gardenia Leaves, Jasmine, Orchid, Agarwood
Amber, Sandalwood, Oakmoss, Musk, Vetiver
What others are saying about it:
“Thank you Bond!!!! I feel as though this was created specifically for me. I’m addicted to the smell of Chanel Gardenia (Exclusif), but it is too feminine for me to wear. B9 is the perfect fix. It has the elegance of the gardenia but is strengthened by the amber and musk. These big bottles usually last me a very long time, but I’ve been spraying on B9 everyday since I purchased it. Safe enough for the office, prestigious enough for special occasions and sensual enough for date nights. Another winner from Bond no 9!!” – A.R
“B9 is a complex and disarming floral-woody fragrance that cultivates a deep friendship between feminine floral notes (gardenia, jasmine, orchid) and masculine woody/mossy notes (sandalwood, oud, and vetiver are very noticeable). It’s an unusual take on the fleshy gardenia motif, rendering it a swagger and a sensational genderless beauty. Here are traditional notes presented in an innovative and exquisitely nuanced way that had me fielding all manner of inquiries as to its name.” -Chromatic
