Sag Harbor Perfume
    Bond No. 9, a Manhattan perfumery with an outpost located on Main Street, Sag Harbor, will soon release a scent named for that village.
    Sag Harbor is described in a press release as “a languid, flower-garden, ivy-coated, marine-scented ode to that quietly beguiling alternative South Fork town.”
    The scent follows in the wake of other Long Island-inspired perfumes from Bond No. 9, including Fire Island, Coney Island, and Andy Warhol Montauk.
    The new perfume will be released Memorial Day weekend.

Listings on the Go
    Sotheby’s International Realty, with offices in several South Fork towns, has created a mobile Web site for users on the go.
    After discovering that 17 percent of all its site traffic came from mobile devices, the firm created a Web site custom-designed for phones and tablets. It incorporates GPS technology to locate available properties, including M.L.S. listings when available. A new click-and-call feature is able to connect a client to a Sotheby’s broker, and agents can receive e-mail from the site for additional property information.
    The Web site address is sothebyshomes.com.

Architecture Award
    The Sag Harbor architectural firm Bates Masi and Architects has been recognized for innovation by Architectural Record magazine as a “Record House 2012.”
    The house, called Genius Loci, in Montauk, has been chosen as one of the nine worldwide to be profiled by the magazine, which dates back to 1891. It can be seen in the April issue or online at archrecord.com.
    Bates Masi has been in business for 48 years.
