Warhol perfume in limited availability

In 1967, Andy Warhol spray-painted Coke bottles silver and filled them with a citrus fragrance for one of his artworks. It was never finished, however. Coca-Cola stopped it with a cease-and-desist letter.

Fifty years later, the Japanese fashion label Comme des Garcons (which means “like boys” in French) has brought it back. The unisex fragrance “Andy Warhol’s You’re In” was released during New York Fashion Week.

Channeling the original, it’s got top notes of bitter orange, jasmine and makrut lime zest and comes in six sleek silver bottles, each with a Warhol quote on them. They’re boxed in yellow-and-red packaging inspired by vintage film posters.

For now, you can only find them at Dover Street Market New York on Manhattan’s East Side, CDG Berlin and CDG Parfum Paris. Then they will be rolled out at Dover Street Market and Comme des Garcons locations worldwide through October. Or you’ll be able to pick one up online at http://shop.doverstreetmarket.com.

It will cost you $95 per bottle, so let’s hope it lasts longer than 15 minutes!

Hints from Heloise

Save articles in photo to cellphone

Scott Y. writes via email: Instead of clipping articles I find of special interest, I take a photo of them with my cellphone. From there, I can crop and send them to a file I’ve created for that category. Easy to keep, no yellowing, and easy to retrieve and use/share. I’ve done this with Heloise hints!

Many Americans plan fall vacation

Almost 30 percent of Americans planned to take a fall vacation this year.

According to AAA, 28 percent of United States citizens expected to make time to travel between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Fewer crowds and children, favorable weather and a better value are some of the reasons travelers prefer vacations in the fall.

For autumn travelers, a car is the most common form of transportation, with 62 percent of survey respondents driving to their destinations.

Another reason behind the rise in fall travel is the abundance of festivals and seasonal events. The AAA survey found that 26 percent of travelers are planning a vacation this fall to view the changing foliage.

Most travelers will be staying within the U.S., with top destinations such as Orlando, Fla., Anaheim, Calif., Honolulu, New York City and Las Vegas receiving the most visitors.
