To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s birthday, Bond No.9 is releasing their next Warhol inspired perfume, making it their third release to date. I had a whiff of their Silver Factory and Union Square perfumes inspired by Andy Warhol, and liked them both.
My perfume shelf was emptier than most hippies I know before I trialed a few samples of the Bond no9 Warhol perfumes. I now rarely leave the house without a splash or two of smelly stuff on me. Sometimes I’ll even put perfume on while working at the computer, just because I like the smell.
From Bond No.9.. “Its name, Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue, recalls the artist’s formative pre-Pop years in 1950s New York, when he lived in the first of several apartments on Lexington Avenue and plied his trade as a prolific illustrator—mainly of imaginative shoes. Hence the Warhol-designed mélange of exclamation-point heels and high-button boots that covers the flacon. Lush and unapologetically seductive, Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue dares (perhaps for the first time in perfumery) to link two of the most ultra-feminine commodities a woman can own: fragrance and footwear.”
Andy Warhol was born on the 6th of August, 1928 which would make him 80 years old today if he was still alive (he died in 1987.) It makes me wonder what he would be making today. I think he would have loved the digital age and embraced the internet. His homepage would probably look like Amazon.com as he was a business artist. I wonder if Google will celebrate the pop artist’s birthday today with a Warhol/Google logo..
