James Bond Day and all things Gold.

Safe to say I’m a bit of a Bond nut. As in: obsessive. As in: Mastermind subject material. Months ago I was invited to the launch at the amazing Bond Exhibition in the Barbican. And then life got in the way and suddenly its October.

var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-16137992-1’]);
_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
})();

Still, everything happens for a reason and today is officially James Bond Day – and 50 years since the release of Dr No (not my favourite film).

Since the original fragrance sold out in Harrods – this new Gold version has been released just in time to celebrate all things Bond.

In all fairness, I like the smell – its not cheap (to me) smelling and certainly holds its own in its category. I can’t say any further as it was stolen taken by son no.2 as soon as it arrived in the house. He smells nice. What can I tell you?

Its at Harrods at the moment and Nationwide from November 1st. Il est parfait pour Noel!!!!

Whilst we’re waiting for Skyfall at the end of this month – here is a reminder of the greatness of the best Bond ever.

007 fragrance can be found here.
