Bond No 9 Lexington Avenue at Beauty Cafe

Introducing the third fragrance in Bond No 9s Andy Warhol Collection, Lexington Avenue in honor of his 80th birthday, August 6th.

Its name, Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue, recalls the artist’s formative pre-Pop years in 1950s New York, when he lived in the first of several apartments on Lexington Avenue and plied his trade as a prolific illustrator—mainly of imaginative shoes. Hence the Warhol-designed mélange of exclamation-point heels and high-button boots that covers the flacon. Lush and unapologetically seductive, Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue dares (perhaps for the first time in perfumery) to link two of the most ultra-feminine commodities a woman can own: fragrance and footwear.

Top notes of: Blue Cypress, Fennel, Cardamom, Roasted Almonds,
Middle notes of: Pink Peony, Florentine Orris, Creme Brulee, Pimento Berry
Basenotes of: Patchouli and Sandalwood

Available in 50ml 135.00 and 100ml 195.00

Lexington Avenue will be shipping the first week of August, Preorders being accepted.

Love, laughter and friendship,

Ete en Douce from L'Artisan Parfumeur

Now available at Beauty Cafe, L'Artisan Parfumeurs, Eté en Douce introduces a new way of talking about fresh fragrances, with no acidulated, fusing or sparkling notes… Pure and light, it evokes the dew caressing grass in a field and wild rose bushes, the freshness of lime trees and the warm scent of freshly cut hay. Soothing as orange-flower water, it is as transparent as our summer thoughts. Soft and caressing, it is as easy to wear as a white linen dress and envelopes your summer memories with a gorgeous veil of mist.

L'Artisan Parfumeur Eté en Douce,
100ml, $135.00
