Bond Cake


To celebrate the October 23rd premiere of SkyFall, the 23rd James Bond film (and 50 years of the James Bond film franchise), Procter & Gamble releases James Bond 007 today, a cologne for men that calls itself “dangerously sophisticated” and we would describe as “musky.” The silver top of the rectangular, mesh-textured bottle niftily twists like an elaborate spy gadget to reveal an atomizer that, when pressed, releases the eau de James Bond on to the world.

What sold us, though: the vanilla and buttercream Sylvia Weinstock cake that arrived today alongside a bottle of the cologne, looking like a little granite podium topped by a larger-than-life fragrance flask (made of fondant, no less!). The only thing sweeter would've been if Daniel Craig had delivered it himself.

    If you have any doubts about this product's sophistication, you should know that I wore this to a panel at the New Yorker Festival. Yes, THE New Yorker.

    Anyway, it smells pretty good.

    Bond. James Bond.
    How insanely cool is it that it's already been 50 years of 007 wowing the word with his super spy skills?
    Honestly, I don't really care about the cologne that much but that cake!
    Seriously awesome.
    SkyFall seems interesting. I may have to go watch it :)
