Beauty News. The Next Bond Is… Andy Warhol?

July 21, 2008 • Beauty


Well… no, not 007. But Bond No. 9 fragrances has introduced a new scent and bottle design based on Andy Warhol‘s pre-Pop years. Issued in the year when Warhol would have been 80, "The scent is named for the location of one of Warhol’s first apartments, […] and
its bottle features a collage of colorful, high-heeled shoes, graphics
that were inspired by the shoe ads he sketched early in his career."

Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue, the third Warhol-inspired Bond scent, is described as a floral-woody chypre. It features top notes of
blue cypress, fennel and cardamom; middle notes of pink peony,
Florentine orris, crème brûlée and pimento berry
, and base notes of
patchouli and sandalwood. Our craving for crème brûlée basically never goes away, so this is perfect.

For holiday, the company will issue this scent in a limited edition fiberglass shoe presentation for $1,100. Along with the fragrance, Bond No. 9 will pair up with Robert Lee Morris, who will create 400 limited edition sterling silver
necklaces featuring four shoe pendants, also inspired by Warhol’s shoe
sketches. An inscription on the pendants will read: "Beauty is shoe, shoe beauty," and they will retail for $575.

    I’m going to shorten that phrase into a personal motto: “Beauty is shoe”.
