Perfumier Laurice Rahmé is French, but she left her heart in New York City. Her ode to her adopted home is Bond No. 9, a hugely popular fragrance collection that sounds like it was named for a certain British spy. In fact Bond No. 9 is Rahmés chic Noho address. Each of her 26 eaux de parfum is dedicated to a different New York neighborhood. Forget the citys olfactory offenses; Bond No. 9 captures the spirit, not the actual scents of New York. So instead of Eau du Hot Dog with Sauerkraut, she has made edgy, whimsical, and luscious perfumes. Meet this fascinating scent artist and watch her blend her fashionable potions today from noon to 4:00 p.m. at Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour. Call 305-865-1100, or visit www.bondno9.com.
