The Sweet (and Cool) Smell of Pop Art

“My favorite smell is the first smell of spring in New York” Andy Warhol

What could be more appealing than the magnificant frangrances of Bond No. 9, combined with spectacular artwork from one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Andy Warhol Union Square, is the second in Bond’s Warhol series, made in collaboration with The Warhol Foundation.

The scent, a seductive green floral that’s simultaneously cool and warm, is housed in a slim Bond No. 9 glass flacon, displaying Warhol’s fuchsia, red and yellow coloured flowers with blue coloured blades of grass, as its surface design. Warhol’s Flowers silk-screens and Union Square itself, the second location of Warhol’s Factory (and the place where he created his Flowers), were the inspiration for this new fragrance.

If you are a serious Warhol collector, then you will be very interested in the limited-edition portfolio of ten bottles, each a different Flowers print - cost $1500.

Andy Warhol Union Square
, the latest in Bond No. 9’s series of collectible Warhol eaux de parfum, will be available March, 2008.
