Union Square is all about fresh flowers and Bond No. 9 has attempted to capture that essence in a cool, vibrant bottle. The scent is a true green floral that runs warm and cool and is distinctly feminine.

Bond No. 9’s Chinatown is a seductively dynamic eau de parfum. Its top note is a burst of peach blossom, blended with creamy-sweet gardenia and sultry tuberose and a hint of patchouli adds a spicy note to the other florals. On one side of the bottle, the flowers are the color of iridescent pearl on a deep fuschia background. Turn it over, and in yin-yang style, it’s the same design with the colors reversed.
