At ESSENCE.com, the offices are so close, its impossible for someone to rock a new perfume without everyone knowing. Recently, a staffer swanned in rocking Bond No. 9’s new holiday scent, Washington Square, and we all immediately swooned! The cult favorite, downtown Manhattan-based fragrance brand’s new launch is a fresh yet elegant blend of Italian bergamot, purple rose and vintage amber. The floral musk is lightweight but super-sexy — the perfect thing if you’re not ready to transition into heavy winter fragrances. The best part? Washington Square is a unisex scent, so don’t be surprised if it ends up on his side of the counter. Bond No.9 Washington Square, $95-$230, available at Bond No.9 stores and bondno9.com
