Bond No. 9, the fragrance company known for making all of New York's nooks and crannies smell good with their neighborhood-themed perfumes, has created a special scent just for the city of Chicago. Exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue, the perfume is adorned with a Swarovski crystal saxophone, honoring Chicago's deep-rooted tradition of Blues music and assumed love of all things sparkly.
The perfume goes on sale tomorrow, November 4, and when we say exclusive, we mean it—only 200 bottles of the scent were produced, and once they're gone from Saks' Michigan Avenue location, they're gone for good. If you don't get your hands on one, all's not lost. You might not smell like the fragrances' notes of cinnamon and pineapple leaves, but if you carry around a slice of deep dish pizza and and a worn-in Blackhawks jersey, you'll at least smell like Chicago pride in some way.
