Like all the scents we design for our Bond No. 9 repertory, this one is of ambiguous male-female gender. We conceived of Silver Bond as a smooth, smoky, spicy blend of interlacing incense (a key scent of the '60s), wood resin, and syrupy, seductive amber. But just to complicate things, we gave it a heart of jasmine, iris, and violet, a scent that we are especially fond of. These slightly dissonant florals combine to evoke a metallic effect that of warmed-up, molten silver, and then, for the merest hint ofcoolness, we threw in a handful of cedarwood. 3.3 oz.
