Generally Bond cigarettes, of course have nothing to do with Agent 007. At least because, judging by the marketing legend, the brand appeared in 1902, and Ian Fleming came up with his killer only in 1953. So where did these cigarettes come from? In a rather scant history of Bond there are many myths in which we will now try to understand. So, the beginning of the last century. Cigarettes have not yet received widespread distribution.

According to the legend, Bond cigarettes were born due to the direct participation of the English royal family. Allegedly acting then King Albert, or, if adhered to the protocol, Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David Windsor, by his decree allocated to Philip Morris (Bond brand owner) a place under the tobacco Shop. And not somewhere, but on the Bond Street. Street, where the most expensive and prestigious boutiques are still located in London. Hence the name of new cigarettes. However, the fact that at that time King Albert was only eight years old is hampered completely to believe in this story. He was born only in the year 1894 and hardly in 1902 could make any decisions.

Perhaps, if we compare the history of Bond Street brand development with other brands of cigarettes, it will seem too drab and calm. There were no tricky marketing moves, as in the case of Camel promotion, or buying up movie stars and radio, as they liked to do advertisers Chesterfield. Everything is very decent. This may be due to the fact that Bond has always been oriented towards the audience with an average income and does not compete with the premium class brands. Therefore, spread out purely due to a reasonable combination of quality and price. Or maybe the answer lies in the history of the brand.

Bond Street cigarettes, then still previously “Old Bond Street” were born in the early XX century and quickly gained popularity with the London public. However, the Morris family (the founder's father passed away in the late XIX century) did not have time to enjoy the success of cigarettes trading. In 1919, their company noticed by Americans, and a new corporation with a similar name was registered in Virginia. In memory of the British past there only crest with a royal crown left, which today can be found on the packs of Philip Morris International. And this corporation had brands much more important than Bond — for example, the famous Marlboro.
