Bond no. 9 will release the third fragrance in their Andy Warhol series, Lexington Avenue, in August. The scent is named for an apartment in Murray Hill that Warhol sublet from a friend in 1953.
The floral woody chypre scent was developed by perfumer Claude Dir; the notes include blue cypress, fennel, cardamom, pink peony, iris, crème brûlée, pimento berry, patchouli and sandalwood.
Bond no. 9 Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue will be available in 50 and 100 ml. The bottle design features a shoe collage (according to CBS News, Andy Warhol had a "thing for shoes"), and there will also be limited edition bottles with silver shoe necklaces (as shown) by Robert Lee Morris. (via wwd)

AHHHH! I am one of those who absolutely adores Silver Factory, so I cannot wait to try this one. I also adore creme brulee. And iris. And patchouli. I'm a little worried about the fennel, but other than that, gimme gimme gimme!!! Do you know if it will be “exclusive” to Saks or something at first?
I adored Silver Factory. Wish I had a bottle. Will look forward to trying this one !
And no, I think the Bond boutiques will have it too.
This sounds intriguing! Fennel-créme brulée-blue cypress chypre?
::adds this to must-sniff list::
Isn't that an interesting list of notes? I can't “picture” the smell in my head at all.
I'm giddy! The notes sound wonderful and the bottle is to die for!
I would not get the one with the dangling shoes unless they are detachable to wear on a neck chain!
By the way, RLM is now signed up to design some jewelry pieces for MaryKate and Ashley Olsen, for their Elizabeth And James line. They must have made him an offer he couldn't refuse. I still can't get that whole alliance into my head.
P, I think the way it works is that if you get the special bottle, you get 1 necklace w/ a single shoe pendant — so don't think it is exactly like what you see in the picture.
And did not know of RLM, but even having spent 15 minutes on his website last night, the MKA Olsen does seem like a very weird partnership.
As a shoe fanatic, I must have this bottle, no matter what it smells like. The notes sound like a hopeless hodgepodge, but who knows, maybe I'll like it. Loved Silver Factory.
I loved Silver Factory too. I'd like a bottle w/ a collage of perfume bottles
This has to be MY Patti!!!! <3
I cannot wait to smell this and get my hands on it!!!!!!! Love the bottle!
