James Bond is shaping up to have a pretty good year. A huge exhibit opened in London celebrating his style in everything from suits to cars, and there's a rumor that the man himself will help open the Summer Olympics. Now, Procter and Gamble is releasing a 007 fragrance just in time for the latest Bond film, Skyfall, to hit theaters this autumn. British retailer Harrods will get first dibs, since they're where James Bond probably shops, and everybody else will have it by November.
And what does it actually smell like? Surprisingly, not a shaken martini. The '60s-inspired scent has notes of apple, vetiver, moss, lavender, and cardamom. Also, the brand admits that Avon has the license for a "Bond Girl" perfume, but it's not happening ... yet.
