Bond No. 9 New Orleans

Bond No. 9 is once again wandering away from New York by creating a scent for the city of New Orleans. Saks New Orleans is a "rich, gourmand oriental scent with hints of vanilla, black currant and cinnamon."

The signature "superstar" flacon this time is in matte black with a Swarovski crystal fleur de lis and costs a cool $325. It will be sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue in New Orleans.

Notes: tuberose, violet leaf, cassis, vanilla, black currant, lily of the valley, bergamot, mandarine, cinnamon, patchouli, amber, sandalwood

(The Bond rep said "The Bond No. 9 New Orleans fragrance is a custom blend created from current Bond No. 9 fragrances." I am assuming she means a mash-up of other Bond frags. With it's notes of violet leaf, cassis, and cinnamon, I'm betting one of them is Bleecker Street. I asked for clarification of her statement, but have so far received no follow-up.)
