This Fall, as the leaves begin to morph into warmer hues of oranges and yellows, maintain some green in your own life with Bond No. 9’s latest installation: “Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York,” a money-inspired scent slated to hit stores this October. With the country in the throes of a recession, the New York-based perfume brand is introducing a unisex scent inspired by the very item that’s at the core of most dilemmas: money. How can a perfume be inspired by money, you ask? Well, according to Bond No. 9, just like money, this latest scent “lures and intoxicates.”
Curious yet? We thought so.
The unusual title stems from iconic artist Andy Warhol’s very first assignment as an illustrator in the 1950s, for an article entitled “Success is a Job in New York.” We’re sure we don’t need to tell you that Andy Warhol went on to become an icon in his own right, and his work has been reproduced nearly everywhere. (You’ve seen it, even if you can’t identify it by name.) The bottle of Bond No. 9’s newest scent features Warhol’s dollar design, created in 1981. Just as unique as Warhol himself was, the color palette for the scent features a coral dollar sign on the front, and bright blue featured on back – coupled with neon shades, fittingly so for Fall 2009 and the neon hues that have abounded runways.
As for the scent itself, Bond No. 9 describes this latest project as a “warm and spicey gourmand” complete with “spicey-citrussy top-notes.” It couldn’t be more autumn-appropriate! So mark your calendars for the perfume’s drop date: Oct. 1, 2009. You’ll be able to scoop it up at all four Bond No. 9 New York stores, and select branches of Saks Fifth Avenue. Price-wise, 100ml will cost you $220, while 50ml will run you $145. For more information about Bond No. 9, visit their official Web site.
