High-fashion houses having their own line of signature fragrances is a long standing practice, but when it comes to Comme des Garçons, did anyone really expect them to bottle some milquetoast, light floral scents and call it a day?
Since 1994, Comme des Garçons Parfums, under the direction of Christian Astuguevieille, has produced scents imbued with the label's avant garde spirit, from the unexpected to the downright confrontational "socially incorrect, anti-perfumes."
In a world where concrete is ubiquitous, the mundane fabric of urban cityscapes, now it is given disparate context: the uniquely refined realm of perfumery.
Destruction: The richness of Sandalwood is shattered to reveal its very essence, a radically new scent emerging from its fractured form.
Construction: Industrial synthetics pierce natural familiarity; artificial Rose oxide distorts an opulent woody overdose.
Creation: Layers of resinous warmth are lacquered with metallic seams, built upon a foundation of Comme des Garçons’ spice signature.
The juice is contained within a shell of concrete and glass, hand-finished and held within a pocket of bubble-wrap.
