James Bond 007 Fragrance
The James Bond 007 Fragrance, designed by Eon Productions in association with Procter & Gamble has been released in 4 collectible fragrances.
The first edition, released in October 2012, in the black bottle, features notes of apple, cardamom, sandalwood, vetiver, lavender, moss and coumarin that will give you a retro feel.
Bill Brace, vice president of fashion brands for P&G Prestige said: “The aromatic feugere fragrance family came to prominence in the 1960s – it was unmistakably masculine – mossy and ferny. But that was a while ago, so we wanted to move it on and give it a much more modern and sophisticated shell, which is why there’s fresh apple, cardamom, sandalwood and vetiver.”
The 007 logo is embossed on the front of the bottle of the eau de toilette. The 'diamond shaped' pattern on the bottle and packaging looks similar to the pattern of the ST Dupont Diamond Head cufflinks worn by Bond in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
