Bond No.9 say:
Bond No. 9 Harrods for Her is an eau de parfum that captures both the future-oriented spirit of 21st century Harrods and the eclectic downtown vibe of Bond No. 9. Its key ingredient, and its only floral component, is one that is coveted by both British and American scent aficionados: tuberose. But this tuberose has been given a chic 21st century twist. For the first time here, it is paired with leather, turning it into a tuberose noir. Surrounding this unique coupling are alternately zesty and languorous sidekicks - neroli, mandarin, chamomile, clary sage, and nutmeg, followed by the warm after-scent of amber, sandalwood, and vetiver.

Latest Reviews of Harrods for Her
It makes for an interesting combination. This is clearly inspired by Fracas, but with the fruit turned up to modernize it, but the supporting elements go a long way to keep it from falling into "copy" status.
With time, the violets make the transition into suede and the neroli arrives, leaving a smell akin to leathery tuberose orange, surrounded by tendrils of herbs and lingering wisps of pink. This is well orchestrated and interesting, though I would argue that Petit Fracas, the Fracas flanker, does what this does better. I'm voting neutral because I just don't like fruity florals that much, but this is well done.
