Bond No. 9 and Laurice Rahmé

Categories: , ,

The New York Times profiles Laurice Rahmé (left), the driver (after reading this article, that seems like a mild term for her) behind the cult fragrances of Bond No. 9, as she debuts Scent of Peace at the UN.

Ms. Rahmé has served as a distributor for such prized fragrance brands as Annick Goutal (Annick Goutal Heure Exquise Eau de Toilette is a favorite of The Style Page) and Creed. The article outlines her falling out with Oliver Creed of Creed, in which she turned her Creed boutiques into Bond No. 9 boutiques. Her tactics have antagonized retail executives at NYC stores such as Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman, which don't carry Bond No. 9. You can, however, purchase Bond No. 9 online and at select stores, including its boutiques.
