Over on the official 007 Fragrance website, there’s an exclusive look at a brief extract of one of the chapters from ‘The James Bond Archives’, published this October by Taschen. The site is publicising the launch of the fragrance for men, to coincide with the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the famously sophisticated film spy.
The extract is from ‘The Man With the Golden Gun’, one of the four chapters I’ve researched and written for ‘The James Bond Archives’ book. It’s a bit about the making of the film and Scaramanga’s famous prop Golden Gun, made from a cigarette lighter, pen, cuff links and cigarette case. This is a first look at text from the book and gives readers an idea of the book’s ‘oral history’ format.
‘The James Bond Archives’ is the official history of the 007 films, published with the cooperation of EON productions.
You can also order a free sample of the fragrance on the website, which GQ Magazine has called ‘The Most Dangerously Sophisticated Fragrance in the World’.
