LONDON — It may not be a mix of blood, sweat, vodka and a kiss of vermouth, but the new James Bond 007 fragrance, which launches at Harrods next month, aims to capture the mojo of the on-screen and literary hero.
Eon Productions, which produces the James Bond films, and Procter & Gamble Co. have joined to create the new scent to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, and the launch of Bond film number 23, “Skyfall,” which is out in the U.S. in November.
The fragrance is an aromatic feugere with notes of fresh apple, cardamom, sandalwood and vetiver. The backbone contains lavender, moss and coumarin.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
