Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez and Miss Piggy all have a perfume of their own. Now Andy Warhol will have a celebrity perfume too, when the New York fragrance makers at Bond no.9 release a perfume called “Silver Factory” in December.
It’s a collaboration between the Andy Warhol Foundation and Bond no.9 (known for making New York neighborhood scents). This is the first of a series of Andy Warhol inspired perfumes that are being produced.
I don’t know much about perfume, but it smells good to me. It’s for guys and girls, which seems appropriate for someone like Mr. Warhol.
Bond no.9 say.. “We conceived of Silver Factory as a smooth, smoky, spicy blend of interlacing incense (a key scent of the sixties), 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.”
The perfume bottle design is inspired by a Campbells soup can by Andy Warhol.
Update: A new Andy Warhol Fragrance has been released by the New York perfume maker Bond No.9.
