We now have more details about the upcoming launch by Bond No. 9. Bond No. 9, after Andy Warhol Silver Factory (2007), will release their second Warhol-inspired scent with Andy Warhol Union Square on March 1st 2008. The New-York based perfumery promises to deliver unusual olfactory sensations this spring with the creation of this green floral perfume, as "sweetness" and "coolness" intertwine and merge,
"While most floral fragrances just hint at cool, and vice versa, this one is an ambi-sexual, daringly balanced mix of sweet and cool. Sometimes the gentle scent of lily of the valley seems about to prevail, looped together with blue freesia, golden amber, and animal musk to enhance its sensuality. At other times, crunchy green-stem notes and white birch wood are poised to turn this scent into one of pure, clean energy.But then the sweetness and the coolness merge, and stay merged.".....
The packaging aspect of this launch is significant as Andy Warhol's art, his flower screenprints are reproduced on the flacons. There is even the option of acquiring all ten variations with the "portfolio" of 10 bottles (100 ml), available for $1500.
About the flacon pictured here, Bond No. 9 writes that,
"We present fuchsia, red and yellow colored flowers with blue colored blades of grass. Like nothing found in nature, these flowers remain on the two-dimensional plane. They are like psychedelic paper cut-outs superimposed above the blades of grass, which have an outsized life of their own. Yet the two coalesce in the overall composition, just as the scent’s floral and green notes merge in their own artistic composition."
For Mother's Day, a limited-edition of a 36 inches sterling silver necklace inspired by Warhol's flowers and created by Robert Lee Morris will be available with a 100 ml flacon of the perfume for $575.
