NEW YORK, November 13 /PRNewswire/ --

- Up First, Andy Warhol Silver Factory Perfume Concentrate by Bond No. 9

Bond No. 9's creator and CEO, Laurice Rahme announces a new direction in the art of perfumery and perfume bottle design. Andy Warhol Silver Factory marks the start of Bond No. 9's series of Warhol collectibles. Depicted on the bottle's surface is a graphic image inspired by one of the pop artist's most recognizable images-a boldly re-colored rendition of the Campbell's Soup Can. Soup? Perfume? Both smell sweet to us. But an Andy Warhol perfume? Well, Warhol once made mention of a company that was "interested in buying [his] aura." Here it is, in liquid form.

Like all the scents-in-progress that we are designing for our Warhol repertory, this one is of ambiguous male-female gender. We conceived Silver Factory as a smooth, smoky, spicy blend of interlacing incense (a key scent of the '60s), wood resin, and syrupy, seductive amber. But just to complicate things, we gave it a heart of jasmine, iris, and violet-a scent that Warhol was especially fond of. These slightly dissonant florals combine to evoke a metallic effect-that of warmed-up, molten silver. And then, for the merest hint of coolness, we threw in a handful of cedarwood.

Andy Warhol Silver Factory by Bond No. 9 will retail for US$230, for 3.4 fl.oz. and will be available in December at Bond No. 9's four New York boutiques, at www.bondno9.com, at Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide and at saks.com.
