I just want you to know that if all that was left of you was your smile and your  little finger, you would still be more of a man than anyone I ever met.


Well, that’s because you know what I can do with that little finger.

With the celebrations in full swing for the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise it was inevitable that no stone would be left unturned. Eon Productions is about to enter the world of Fragrance with the release of “James Bond 007”.

The fragrance will only be available starting in August of 2012 at Harrods of London. The notes are fresh apples, cardamom, sandalwood, vetiver, lavender, coumarin and moss. It is classified as an aromatic-fougere.

International release is set for  September in North America, Europe, the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and the Far East. The fragrance will be carried in mid level department stores such as Sears and Kohls.


You aren’t going to let me in there, are you? You’ve got your armor back on and that’s that.


I have no armor left. You stripped it from me . What ever is left….whatever I am….I am yours.


Just for fun all eight, yes eight men who have played James Bond. From left to right, Barry Nelson as Jimmy Bond on the 1954 CBS television show “Climax” production of “Casino Royale”. Sean Connery the first official Bond. David Niven in the 1968 spoof of “Casino Royale”.  George Lazenby who only served Her Majesty’s secret service once. Roger Moore (no comment) . Timothy Dalton who gave Bond back his bite. Pierce Brosnan the Remington Steele Bond. Daniel Craig, who knows how to use his little finger to take Bond the closest to Ian Fleming’s original conception of James Bond.

Below, my painting of Daniel Craig as James Bond.


  1. I love the painting. It looks like a Terminator Daniel Craig. Awesome.

    • LOL yes my little joke about the painting is… who is gonna blow his top first? Craig or Vesuvius?

      • Excellent! Wasn’t he funny with the Queen in the opening Olympic ceremony? Swoon! Did you see him in Infamous with Sandra Bullock?

      • That was so brilliant, Bond with Her Majesty. And the look he gave her when she passed him was priceless. Remind me sometime to tell you about the letter I wrote to the Queen and the answer I got back. LOL. Yes Infamous in my book is the better of the two Capote films. I think Mr. Craig is amazingly gifted….in so many ways.

  2. Love the painting Lanier… quite the talent! Not sure about a fragrance based on a fictional character in a bottle that looks like a tire though!

    • Thank you! Yes I quite agree on the idea of a fragrance based on Bond. And you are so Right about the bottle. It could have been wonderful. But in this case I am sure art and aesthetics are not the point. Making a buck off of Bond is.
