    Default New Fragrance: Andy Warhol by Bond No 9

    From fragrantica.com:

    Bond No. 9 signed an argreement with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to produce fragrances under the Andy Warhol name. They started with Andy Warhol Silver Factory in 2007. Since then, six fragrances, including the newest one, have been introduced.

    World-famous for his silkscreen portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Chairman Mao, Jackie O, John Lennon, and Princess Di, among other celebrities whose photos he burnished for posterity in the Pop Art style he pioneered, Andy Warhol also frequently recorded his own tow-headed image throughout his career. His angular, dispassionate face, sometimes framed in sunglasses, is perhaps more familiar not only to the art world, but to the general public, than any other artist’s in history.

    Andy Warhol by Bond No 9 is housed in a standard Bond No 9 bottle with an image of the artist himself, which is repeated on each side of the bottle. "We chose a photo-booth portrait of a youngish, clean-cut, Mad Man-esque Warhol, circa 1963-1964, when he was 35, wearing sunglasses, along with the era’s essential trench coat, white business shirt, and tie."

    TOP: Italian Bergamot Zest, Cypriot India, Provence Blue Cypress, Plum
    HEART: Jasmine de Grasse, Agarwood, Rose Centifolia, White Patchouli, Cistus
    BASE: Red Sandalwood, Vanilla Madasgascar, Oriental Musk, Olibanum Tears

    It's hard for me to even work up an appetite for sampling this house with so many disappointments to my nose.

    I too have been left underwhelmed by many Bond No.9 fragrances.

    That is a very cool bottle though. Any idea on release date? I can't seem to find it on the Bond website.

    Agreed. I own Chez from a couple of years ago and have worn it once or twice. A friend of mine owns it and it's the only thing he wears. It actually smells good once you get a hit of it in passing, but with so many alternatives, I just can't imagine wasting a day wearing this house.

    I feel the same about Creed, but I guess that's the inevitable due to Laurice Rahme drifting. I keep returning to both houses in hopes I will find love, but it's just not for me.

    Don't like the bottle tbh. Never tried a Bond No 9 yet, perhaps missing out.

    I haven't found a single Bond No. 9 Fragrance I have wanted to purchase yet. Perhaps this new line will turn the tides for me.

    +1 ...

    and the image chosen for the bottle is not the iconic image that people recall, perhaps, is more reflective of him in his heyday ...

    Notes look good. Real good. Bond has had a few exceptional scents lately (Harrods Oud, Washington Square, and to a lesser extent NY Oud.. maybe Harrods Amber, haven't sniffed that yet). Hoping this is another.

    They have many more misses then hits, but the few hits are very good IMO. I look forward to trying it.

    My sentiments exactly. They release so many and often there are misses but 5 or 6 are definitely bottle worthy for me.

    Sounds like it has some potential...I will definitely give it a try. Bond has been on somewhat of a role lately. Maybe the olibanum is crying tears of happiness!

    I have 4 and I like 5 Bonds ( Saks for him - don't have it, New Haarlem, Silver Factory, Eau De New York, Riverside Drive)
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    Will give this is a chance, as I like a decent chunk of what Bond has put out, but their ridiculous prices have kept me buying too many of their scents. Many of the fragrances I want to buy from them are well over $300 a bottle, and they just had another across-the-board price increase this week.

    Bond really needs to slow down on the releases. What is that, four or five in the past month or two? It's getting to be overkill. I agree that the line as a whole has a lot of total misses and some big hits.
    Splits!

    I only like a handful of BN9 scents. Although I'm loving that bottle I am sort of thinking they're overdoing the Andy Warhol thing - no?

    New Haarlem is amazing.
    Looking forward to smelling the other Bond fragrances. Looks like Roucel also made Riverside Drive. Will try that.

    That's what I was thinking too. And maybe it's just me, but I think their star bottles look best in plain glass. When they print them, they look like cheap plastic tween-age crap.

    And add me to the list of people who think Bond has a few really great scents mixed in with a lot of forgettable clutter. But I keep sniffing them when they come out....

    You're not Robinson Crusoe mate. I really like quite a few Bond No. 9 releases. I wish they were easier to find in Australia.

    I disagree - the pic used on the bottle is from around 1967, the time of 'The Factory' and when Warhol was sponsoring The Velvet Underground. Personally, I'd say the pic you posted is from the time long past Warhol's heyday.
