Reviews of Silver Bond / Andy Warhol Silver Factory

“It... could... work!” – that’s what Silver Factory by Bond n.9 is for incense (and for the brand itself). Finally – finally! – a non-boring, non-flat, no-nonsense incense fragrance, unexpectedly coming from one of the most boring and nonsense niche brands there are today. One of the most improbable and surprising “what-were-the-odds” coincidences I’ve ever witnessed. But well, it’s here. Silver Factory is very good. It’s a deeply creative take on the incense theme, and somehow it does have a “pop” soul as the name suggests.

First, they finally gave some thickness and substance to incense, instead of diluting & stirring Givaudan’s Mystikal incense compound and selling it as-is; it smells solid, vibrant, alive. The substance is made of an array of nuances which are this close to smelling messy, and instead smell just beautifully kaleidoscopic: there’s amber, there’s a bold metallic vein with a smudged pink shade of iris, there’s some odd smell of ashy rubber, even something resembling to a dusty old drop of musky castoreum popped out of a vintage chypre, and a distinguished, slightly urinous touch of lavender and violet. Just as you would assume with something named after Andy Warhol, it’s old and new, naif and dirty, cold and oily, dark and colourful mixed altogether. And obviously, completely unisex. If I had to sum this up I’d consider Silver Factory a pinkish ambery-lavendery-candied-metallic incense, but that would make little justice to the funny, cheerful, complex texture of this fragrance. It’s at once elegant and juvenile, funny yet troubled, hippie and hipster, but perfectly easy to wear and like.

I agree with what many others said – if Bond ever made something nice, it’s probably this. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not suggesting you to get it: the price is completely mad and this is surely not worthy that money. But if you get the chance of some deals, then surely grab a bottle!

I'm an amber fan, so this fragrance can't do any harm. Smells like quite a few amber fragrances I've smelled in the past (not a bad thing). Amber Absolute, Ambre Premier, yada yada yada. Great fragrance nonetheless. A slight swanky note gives this some muscle. Will be purchasing a bottle soon.

smells exactly like nag champa, brightened by a splash of black currant. the incense that burns in some of these downtown south asian shops. i cannot detect any metallic note. i bought a 100 ml. most of my purchases are blind to keep things interesting. no regrets at all. a keeper.

With incense, woody and floral notes it does give off a metallic vibe of what a silver factory would smell like. You gotta use your imagination a little bit but it's certainly there. I like what it's trying to do but I don't enjoy it enough to be full-bottle worthy. It's a novelty.

Genre: Woody Oriental

This is an austere, dry, smoky incense in the manner of Comme des Garcons’ Avignon. As it offers no improvement over Duchaufour’s classic and costs about twice as much, I don’t see much point to it.

Incense centric fragrances have always attracted me.
Fragrances by the uber talented Aurelian Guichard are always worth my time to investigate.
Silver Factory is a gem. It strikes the perfect harmonic tone on my skin.
I smell nothing "generic" in this.
The jasmine & nod to Andy Warhol's beloved violet blend with the amber & wood notes to create a lovely silage.
The incense settles into my very pores & provides 6 to 8 hours of scented bliss.
I adore Silver Factory.
