SHOP: Take a Walk on the High Line with Bond No. 9

August 26, 2013


We recently spent some time on the The High Line in New York while in the city for the International Gift Show. Inspired by the Promenade plantée in Paris, this former elevated New York Central Railroad spur was brilliantly redesigned as one mile aerial walkway on the West Side of Manhattan.  The entire urban park is lined with fragrant wildflowers and prairie grasses. Truly, the choice of plant material and the design of the plants is AMAZING.

Looks like we weren’t the only ones inspired by the beautiful plantings. Bond No. 9, purveyors of New York neighborhood fragrances, have long been enamored of the High Line and its perfume possibilities. In 2010 they created a scent that conveys a whiff of urban wildflowers and a hint of industrial grit, with bits of Tenth Avenue energy and Chelsea gallery style added to the mix. Bond No. 9 High Line. The scent starts off with a prairie grazing weed mixed with citrusy bergamot and zesty Indian rhubarb. The perfume’s floral heart is red-leaf rose, Lady Jane tulips, and grape hyacinth. Its lingering base notes combine bur oak with imported sea moss, to evoke the Hudson’s River proximity, along with musk and teakwood, to remind us that Bond No. 9 High Line is a metro- perfume.

Stop into our boutique in The Rittenhouse Hotel for some of our favorite perfume from Bond No. 9 Parfum.

SHOP: The Subtle, Simple Jewelry from Jane Hollinger is Perfect for Valentine’s Day

February 3, 2012

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

We’re happy to announce that Evantine at The Rittenhouse is now carrying Jane Hollinger Jewelry! Believe it or not, this young jewelry designer has been working with metals for over 20 years. She received a B.F.A. in sculpture and went on to create several businesses in the early 1990’s, which included custom metal pieces for interior designers with a small side jewelry business. When people on the streets started stopping to ask Jane where she got her jewelry, Jane Hollinger Jewelry was founded! That was in 1998 and Jane’s intent, then and now, focuses on making high quality, modern pieces that are not only extremely personal but classic in nature.

“I’m interested in the essence of an idea: of distilling an impression down to its simplest form. I view all things I see and hear as a possible resource for my jewelry ideas. A textile pattern, a piece of music or shadows and light are all things that have inspired my work. I love the idea that the jewelry holds special meaning to the wearer, and that many of our customers tell us they never take the pieces off.”  Jane Hollinger

As seen in Lucky, Martha Stewart Living, Dwell, Design Sponge and People Magazine, Jane’s elegantly feminine pieces are popular pieces to be enjoyed every day or for special occasions. Each piece is handmade, made-to-order by her in-house team using domestically sourced materials and metals that are carefully recycled. Jane uses Sterling Silver, 10k Gold, 14k Gold, Brass, semiprecious and precious stones, and to a lesser degree 14k gold-fill and vermeil. Although she’s known for her sweet hearts, flowers and starbursts, there is a wide range of designs to choose from.  So there’s a look for everyone!
