“ Brand: Andy Warhol / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette / Gender: for women „
I saw a small bottle of this (in a mini spray within a card pouch in the same design as the box) on E-bay a while ago and had to buy it as I did not realise there were a series of Andy Warhol perfumes on sale.
I have since done some research and this is one of a series of seven perfumes available under the Andy Warhol name. This one is just called "Andy Warhol" but is identified with the picture of the flowers (as on the box in the photo). This particular perfume was brought out in 1999.
This sells online between 99p for a tester to around about £8 for a 30ml EDT spray! So it is very cheap to buy. I think with the Warhol perfumes, you are going to be buying them for the look of the bottle/ box and not the scent as I have not seen this in Boots or anywhere on the high street with testers around to sell the scent.
On to the scent anyway---
Head Notes: Blackcurrant, bergamot, white peach, green sea breeze
Heart Notes: Blue rose, osmanthus, jasmine
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Helitrop, Musk
This is the information from an "Olifactory Pyramid" I got printed on the pack of the item I bought.
In reality- when sprayed this smells a bit like a bubble bath at first. Which I like, as I find bubble bath can smell really nice (when you are running a hot bath and the bathroom gets all warm! the fragrance reminds me of that!). You can smell the blackcurrant but it is quite mild behind a mix of other slightly spicy scents. Each time I smell this to try to describe it to you I can smell something different in the scent!
I would say it is blackcurrant mixed with a warm bubble bath smell with a bit of musk in the background. It is quite girly and also a bit reminiscent of a Little Miss Avon eau de toilette I used to have when I was about 8 (from the childrens section of the Avon catalogue in the 1980s!). I have asked Mr Norton to help me out here and just wafted my wrist under his nose. His conclusion was it smells "pretty, but not floral and a bit spicy".
It is not unpleasant, I really quite like it, but I don't wear a lot of perfume- I normally only use perfume if I am a bit down and want to cheer myself up or if we are going out somewhere for a meal or something. So, I am not one for keeping up with the latest most expensive designer fragrances.
I really like Andy Warhol as an artist and I do like themed things/ merchandise so I am pleased I bought this. It is not something I will wear every day, as I'm not really a big perfume person but I love the pack. If I had bought it in a glass bottle I would have been even happier with it as the bottle looks brilliant (see photo).
Overall- this is VERY cheap and is definitely one of those things you will buy for HOW they look and not how it smells. Fortunately it smells pretty and quite understated (ie not overpowering)! I just love it anyway so four stars from me. If you are a big perfume person and buy all the expensive designer fragrances, this might not be your cup of tea as it is oddly more about the pack/ bottle than the perfume! This is quite ironic, but maybe that is what these Warhol perfumes are all about!
