Bond Street by Yardley c1917

Bond Street was created in 1917 by Yardley. It was a popular scent even into the 1950s-1960s.

Fragrance Composition:

What's it smell like? It is classified as a floral oriental fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: bergamot, orange, incense
  • Middle notes: heliotrope, violet, ylang-ylang, jasmine
  • Base notes: vetiver, labdanum, vanilla, sandalwood and musk

Around 1995, the Irma Shorell company Long Lost Perfumes sold their own version of Bond Street, this reformulation pleased some but disappointed others who felt it was not close enough to resemble the original scent.
