Andy Warhol Smells

Andy Warhol once said his favorite smell was "the first smell of spring in New York".

Called "Andy Warhol Union Square", The perfumer Bond No. 9's has created a Warhol-inspired frangrance for a limited addition collection.

The bottle design is inspired by Warhol's "Flowers" silkscreens and by Union Square, which was the second location of his Factory.

And the smell itself? It has a cool silver cloud musk and amber base, with lily of the valley top notes and a sweet blue freesia and white birchwood heart. " It is complex and quirky but does not cross the line into the land of strange for strangeness's sake. It is rich with amber, but not overwhelming. Incense-heavy, but not churchy. Sweet but not syrupy." - (
