"Andy Warhol Perfumes"


andy warhol perfume by bond no9Andy Warhol lived like a celebrity and craved the attention of other celebrities. He also loved the business of art and enjoyed combining the commercial world with fine art.

If Warhol was alive today, I'm sure he would have his own celebrity endorsed perfume. Celebrities like Paris Hilton, Beyonce Knowles, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, and Elizabeth Taylor all endorse their own perfumes.

Now the New York perfume creator Bond no.9 has released a perfume called "Silver Factory" to celebrate the life of the famous pop artist. The Andy Warhol perfume is a collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation and Bond no9.

Andy Warhol's "Silver Factory" perfume 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. Warhol once made mention of a company that was interested in buying his aura. "Silver Factory" is Bond no.9's attempt to do that.

Warhol once remarked, "Another way to take up more space is with perfume. I really love wearing perfume." What's more, "for an iconic time, perfume is a way to see and be seen," adds Bond No. 9's president, Laurice Rahme. "We were attracted to Bond No 9's creative approach to luxury perfumery which celebrates New York City," said Michael Hermann, director of licensing at The Andy Warhol Foundation. "Working with Bond No. 9 represents a unique, unexpected, and exciting opportunity to introduce Warhol to an ever-widening audience."

The Silver Factory, also known simply as the Factory was in operation from 1964 through to 1968. Warhol's original studio, hangout, and club central was located in a nondescript building on East 47th Street, and acquired a visual uniqueness with its aluminum-foil walls. These walls evoked silver-backed mirrors, emblems of the narcissism that suffused the times. The Silver Factory served as a galvanizing forum for artists, silkscreeners, actors, filmmakers, debutants, activists, hustlers, and misfits, all of whom somehow contributed to the creativity. It was here that Warhol emerged as an avant garde filmmaker, pop art progenitor, and all-around superstar.

New York perfume makerThe Warhol perfume is one is of ambiguous male-female gender, similar to the way the artist lived his life. Bond no.9 describes "Silver Factory" as a "smooth, smoky, spicy blend of interlacing incense, 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."

The perfume bottle is an example of meta-design: the co-opting of Warhol's artistic rendering of a world-famous soup can, and its recycling for yet another consumer product. What's more, taking a cue from the Campbell's label, which proclaims its soups as Condensed, the Andy Warhol fragrances are 28 percent perfume concentrates, in between eau de parfum and perfume extract.
