One’s sense of smell can unleash a flood of memories and bring us back to a special place or time in our lives. Different fragrances and aromas should not only remind us of the past, but it should also help us to relate to the present, and through our senses, connect us to the world we live in.

Laurice Rahme, fragrance industry darling who is known for creating unique scents that capture the essence of New York City’s diverse neighborhoods, and expressing those scents within her line, Bond No. 9, has introduced her newest fragrance, The Scent of Peace.

Created to embody the common bond between all humans, the desire to live in peace with each other, the scent is an effervescent blend of grapefruit and black currant notes. A soothing balance is achieved with accents of lily of the valley and hedione, while a mellow base of sexy musk and cedarwood serve as warm undertones.

The notes of this fragrance come together to form a delicate balance recalling the ongoing struggle to create peaceful stability in our world community today.
Subtleties that suit both men and women, produce a harmonious synthesis between the sexes.

A dove (a symbol of peace) graces the lavender flacon. The symbol reminds us of those neighborhoods around the world where peace is not yet a reality. To ensure that all people will one day be able to live together in peace, Bond No.9 will donate $2 for every bottle of The Scent of Peace purchased, to UNICEF.


To help make our world a place of peace and tolerance, purchase The Scent of Peace at [url=][/url] or [url=][/url].
