(PRWEB) April 11, 2014
Luxury niche perfumer Laurice Rahme will open her Bond No. 9 New York boutiques and Saks Fifth Avenue doors to anyone wishing to recycle their empty glass perfume bottles. Well known by fragrance connoisseurs for her exquisitely crafted collection of artisanal neighborhood scents, Rahme will put her efforts towards recycling the glass that houses them -- as well as any of her competitors’. Recycling is just one way this quintessential New Yorker can give back to the city she loves and make a difference in the fight to save the planet.
Just bring empty glass perfume bottles from April 21- May 3 to Bond No. 9 or Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide – Bond’s or anyone else’s. Bond No. 9 will take care of the rest. And by way of an eco-friendly thank-you, Bond No. 9 will give participants a refillable pocket spray free with any purchase.
“As I become more aware of the issues facing our environment, I feel compelled on a personal and business level to participate in the green movement – and assume a leadership role,” said Laurice Rahme, creator and CEO, Bond No. 9 New York.
Rahme possesses a collection of vintage furniture finds and glass perfume bottles, serves organic tea in the flagship boutique’s tea salon, says no to plastic bags, lights her home using compact florescent bulbs and is now recycling empty perfume bottles. She walks the walk. And since it’s the new black, being green is easy for this New Yorker.

Bond No. 9 has a dual mission: to restore artistry to perfumery, and to mark every New York neighborhood with a floral fragrance of its own. Each fragrance represents a specific downtown, midtown, or uptown locale or a city-wide sensibility. An impassioned client base advises the company on which parts of town they’d like to see next as part of the collection. What Laurice Rahme is doing, is scenting the entire island.
