Although we were outside on the 5,000 foot terrace in the private restaurant of 432 Park Avenue, The Scent of Peace was everywhere. That's because New York Perfumerie Bond No. 9 was hosting a "Bond Fire" to promote international peace and celebrate the brand's partnership with the UN Women for Peace Association. Laurice Rahmé, Bond No. 9 Founder and CEO, Dame Muna Rihani Al-Nasser, Chairman and members of the Board of the UN Women for Peace Association joined UN Ambassadors and Dignitaries to light 100 of the Bond No. 9 lavender Scent of Peace Candles.

Barbara Winston, Michal Grayevsky, Valbona Neritani, Avideh Ghaffari, Susan Gutfreund, Charlene Haroche, Alice Sun, May Zhao, Callie Leone, Leesa Rowland, Victor Roquette, Rachel Alonso-Mendoza, and Laura Day Webb were among the guests who gathered to #BONDFORPEACE, nibbling bites overseen by Michelin-Starred Chef Shaun Hergatt.

Guests were treated to performances by violinists Frédérique Gnaman, Rebecca Telford-Marx, and Meghan Todt, young alumnae of the Music Performance program at NYU Steinhardt.

Intended for men and women alike, The Scent of Peace (arguably the most beautifully civic-minded fragrance ever devised) has grapefruit and black current notes, balanced by lily of the valley, cedarwood and musk. The flacon displays a dove in graceful flight. We see this emissary of peace soaring through our city, across the country, across the seas, bringing its message to the world.

Bond No. 9, in partnership with The UN Women for Peace Association will donate 1 percent of sales for every Peace candle sold leading up to Mother's Day. "As a brand our mission is not just to make new products, but do something bigger," Laurice Rahmé, Founder and CEO, Bond No. 9 said.

The Scent of Peace is sold at Bond No. 9's five retail boutiques in New York City, Saks Fifth Avenue, Select Bloomingdale's and www.bondno9.com. Suggested Retail Price: $330 for 100ml eau de parfum; $230 for 50ml eau de parfum; Body Silk, $125; Scented Candle, $105

UN Women for Peace Association, founded in 2008 under the patronage of H.E. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, seeks to advance the goals of UN agencies who provide opportunities for women through social, cultural, educational, and empowerment programs. Proceeds go directly to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, which aims to prevent violence against women and girls, provides services and programs to those affected by violence, and strengthens the implementation of laws and policies on such violence. Their projects include the UNWFPA school for Syrian refugee girls.

Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back.
