In honor of diamond anniversary, Bond No.9 in collaboration with Harrods is launching special edition Queen Elizabeth II - London Celebration. The new fragrance arrives on the market exclusively at Harrods. It was created in honor of Queen Elizabeth the Second and her diamond jubilee (60 years of her rule).

The Queen has been on the throne since February 6th 1952 and her crowning was held on June 2nd 1953. Celebration on occasion of 60 years of her rule will be held from June 2nd to 5th 2012. In case you would like to find out more on this manifestation, see the official website: The Diamond Jubilee.

The new, limited edition has been created just for this occasion and it can be described as a floral perfume. Top notes incorporate lantana leaves, dry dates and nutmeg. A heart offers a blend of orange rose, tuberose and iris root, while base notes introduce creamy and warm tones of sandalwood, musk and amber.

The fragrance is available as 100ml EDP, with illustrated Buckingham Palace and royal carriage, ideal for the anniversary and celebration.

This was a limited edition fragrance from Bond which sold exclusively at Harrods in 2012 just a year after Kate Middleton's wedding and during the Diamond Jubilee celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's reign. This is a mature scent, right from the start. This was selling to women who would die to have tea with the Queen and wouldn't make a big deal over Kate. The bottle was lovely and it had a lovely illustration of the royal coach and Buckingham Palace. The scent matches up with the regal air of the celebrations.

The scent opens with nutmeg and spice, some dates and lantana leaves. It's spicy and even the slightest bit woodsy because there is a sandalwood that is not listed in the notes on Fragrantica. The spicy woodsy character makes it unisex or "Church" lady. It was a perfume I thought I'd never like but it kept drawing me in. The spiciness is desirable to me. This was a perfume that my friend Lucia bought for herself and it smells better on her. She is over 60.

The scent becomes progressively floral with iris, rose and tuberose. The iris is here in the form of orris root. It's powdery but not too much. The floral note that keeps jumping out on you is the rose. It's a genuine English rose. It's dark red in color, velvety in texture, elegant and refined. It smells like a bouquet of flowers for the Queen. Tuberoses also decorate the bouquet. Very lovely and that iris!

The dry down is musky on me. I am not getting anything other than a magnificent musk. The little amber that it contains matches up with the spiciness of the top notes.

The scent is a superb formal fragrance to wear to black tie galas and weddings, anniversaries, special dinners. It has a food scent spicy and creamy like a meal. A meal that the Queen is having on a large banquet table inside Buckingham Palace.

While it does have an old lady connotation or Church perfume smell, it's really quite the aroma if you give it a chance! I only wear it to Church the few times I go to Church. I don't necessarily think of this perfume as a scent for older women. There is something also that evokes the feasts and festive air of Christmas about it.

One of the most beautiful and underrated Bond perfumes.

Discontinued.

Beautiful.

Is this one unisex?
I do not know... It says "for women", but who knows...

This is basically just Bond No. 9's Saks En Rose repackaged, as far as I can tell. Disappointing.
