Bond 9's Andy Warhol's Montauk
I'm just trying to be honest about being a misanthrope
(Dazed and Confused)
I have been testing the new Bond 9's fragrance Montauk. This is the fifth in the Andy Warhol series. It was inspired by Andy Warhol's summer compound called Eothen.
The fragrance is described as a twilight beach scent. The bottle design is from Warhol's iconic Sunsets dating from 1972. The setting suns series consist of 632 unique screen prints of highly stylized, abstracted sunsets. Bond chose 4 sunsets to feature on the bottles. They put you in the mind of the sunsets that were painted on vans in the 1970s. Slightly trippy and laid back. You can almost hear the opening of Slow Ride by Foghat.
The fragrance opens with wild bergamot and settles into a tart blueberry. Bluberries might be the my new cardamon! It settles into a floral explosion of a hyacinth, lily of the valley and honeysuckle. It is stemmy and green. The drydown is filled with a salty driftwood and warm ambers. It leans more masculine than feminine. My male co-workers flipped over Montauk. One is pretty blatant on his desire for my decant bottle.
Montauk launches June 1st at your local Bond 9 Saks Fifth Avenue counter.
The 100ml bottle will retail for $220. The 50ml bottle will retail for $145. Visit www.bondno9fragrances.com for more information.
