After Andy Warhol Silver Factory, the first in a series of 12 fragrances inspired by the life and work of Andy Warhol and New York city in a project co-sponsored by Bond No. 9 and the Andy Warhol Foundation, the collection will see the addition of Andy Warhol Union Square in March of 2008. The scent was composed by perfumer Stephen Nielsen of Givaudan......

The perfume is described as being floral, spicy, and musky. It features "top notes of lily of the valley and green stem; middle notes of sweet blue freesia and white birch wood, and bottom notes of amber and silver-cloud musk accords."

The packaging this time will follow Andy Warhol's taste for repetition and variation more closely as Bond No. 9 will propose a set of 10, 100 ml flower-power bottles purchasable for $1500. They will also be available separately in two sizes, $195 for 100 ml/3.4 oz. and $135 for 50 ml/1.7 oz.

Jewelry is also associated this time with the new project; Robert Lee Morris has designed 400 limited edition flower necklaces in sterling silver,

"The jewelry will feature a Warhol quote engraved on the back: "My favorite smell is the first smell of spring in New York," as well as the Bond logo. Launching in time for Mother's Day, the 36-inch necklace will be available with a 100-ml. bottle of the fragrance for $575."
