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."
Conceptualized by Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy, he describes the inspiration behind the scent as "young people hanging together, skating together — concrete and skateboards."
Skateboarding on a summer day. Wheels burning on the hot concrete sidewalk. The smells of rubber and tar colliding to create a scent of youth and freedom.
