Brooklyn is a legendary city within a city, home to a century or more of strivers, dreamers, and Nobel laureates, is reinventing itself, neighborhood by neighborhood, as an edgy metropolis. Brooklyn Cologne by Bond No. 9 ($220 for 100ml, $145 for 50ml) the scent is romantic, sexy, and distinctive—built in a very contemporary way to display its entire composition, rather than individual notes. For those who want us to name names, it’s officially a woody, spicy-filled oriental that mingles cardamom, geranium leaves, and cedarwood while grapefruit and juniper leaves accelerate the scent, and South American guaiacwood and leather bring a tender, beckoning touch.
