Key Notes of The Scent of Peace

What Does The Scent of Peace Smell Like

The Scent of Peace by Bond No. 9 unfurls with a prominent, juicy blackcurrant aroma, underscored by a subtle hint of tangy grapefruit. The fruitiness is not overly sweet, but rather leans toward a fresh, almost crisp sensation. This lively opening slowly mellows, making way for the heart of the fragrance, where the delicate scent of lily of the valley emerges, intertwined with the less familiar but nonetheless pleasing aroma of hedione. This floral duo softens the fruity introduction, adding a light, gently sweet layer to the perfume. Yet, it's the dry down where the true character of this perfume lies. The musk and cedarwood form a compelling duet, with the musk note taking the lead. This warm, animalistic scent envelopes the previous layers, transforming the composition into something deeper, more robust, but without overpowering the initial fruity and floral elements. The cedarwood note, although not as pronounced as the musk, brings a gentle woody backdrop, anchoring the blend and rounding out the overall fragrance. In summary, The Scent of Peace is a fruity, floral, and musky olfactory journey, packed into one fragrance.

Review of The Scent of Peace

The Scent of Peace by Bond No. 9 is an expressive Eau de Parfum that brings out the essence of fresh and sweet floral vibes, with a hint of fruity undertones. It is an appealing choice for women, resonating especially with those who appreciate a blend of freshness and sweetness.

The fragrance unfurls to a bright, revitalizing tone, thanks to the moderate burst of blackcurrant and grapefruit at the top. As it settles, the subtly intoxicating aroma of lily of the valley takes over, bringing out a sense of youthful vivacity and elegance. The dry down is considerably warmer and comforting, with the musk and cedarwood base adding an inviting depth to the fragrance.

Its longevity seems fair but not exceptionally long-lasting, making it ideal for leisure activities or a daily wear perfume. On that note, it's not too overpowering, so it won't distract in a business setting. However, if you're looking for a fragrance to make a strong impression on a night out, this might not hit the mark.

With its dominant floral and fruity appeal, it feels best suited to the warmer seasons of spring and summer, though the enduring woodsy notes give it a touch of versatility that can transition into fall.

Despite its appealing scent profile, The Scent of Peace does not come across as a value for money purchase. For its price, one might expect a stronger performance in terms of longevity and sillage. Hence, if you don’t mind the moderate performance and are intrigued by its scent composition, this fragrance might be a suitable choice.
