Up First, Andy Warhol Silver Factory Perfume Concentrate by Bond No. 9
NEW YORK, Nov. 13 /CNW/ -- Bond No. 9's creator and CEO, Laurice Rahme
announces a new direction in the art of perfumery and perfume bottle design.
Andy Warhol Silver Factory marks the start of Bond No. 9's series of Warhol
collectibles. Depicted on the bottle's surface is a graphic image inspired by
one of the pop artist's most recognizable images-a boldly re- colored
rendition of the Campbell's Soup Can. Soup? Perfume? Both smell sweet to
us. But an Andy Warhol perfume? Well, Warhol once made mention of a company
that was "interested in buying [his] aura." Here it is, in liquid form.

Like all the scents-in-progress that we are designing for our Warhol
repertory, this one is of ambiguous male-female gender. We conceived Silver
Factory as a smooth, smoky, spicy blend of interlacing incense (a key scent of
the '60s), wood resin, and syrupy, seductive amber. But just to complicate
things, we gave it a heart of jasmine, iris, and violet-a scent that Warhol
was especially fond of. These slightly dissonant florals combine to evoke a
metallic effect-that of warmed-up, molten silver. And then, for the merest
hint of coolness, we threw in a handful of cedarwood.
Andy Warhol Silver Factory by Bond No. 9 will retail for $230, for 3.4
fl.oz. and will be available in December at Bond No. 9's four New York
boutiques, at www.bondno9.com, at Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide and at
