Comme des Garcons

NEW Comme Des Garçons Parfums

We have added new fragrances to our collection of CDG Parfums.

CONCRETE

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. Here, the prosaic is treated as precious; stereotypes subverted. A versatile material finds an unpredictable form. An exploration of destruct ion, construction and creation, CONCRETE is a fragrance where material preconceptions are deftly demolished, paving the way for something new.

DESTRUCTION,CONSTRUCTION, CREATION

Destruction: The richness of Sandalwood is shattered to reveal its very essence, a radically new scent emerging from its fractured form.

Construction: New contrasts are created through familiar fabrics. 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. No longer does concrete create hegemony: here, each vessel is uniquely formed. Irregularity is celebrated. Abstracted from its monolithic framework, this material has a startling impact; it commands fresh interpretation, invites new impressions. An investigation into subjectivity and context, here archetypes of beauty and conventions of luxury are wholly dissembled by Comme des Garçons. An exceptional scent created from fragments of familiarity, CONCRETE is Comme des Garçons disruptive approach to design distilled into scent.

Eau de parfum 80ml

ANDY WARHOL

Created by Comme des Garçons and inspired by the original citrus scent Warhol used for the 1967 artwork. The chief top notes are bitter orange, aldehydes and makrut lime zest. The crushed leaves and rind of the makrut fruit emit an intense citrus fragrance, and is used in cooking in Asia.

The middle notes consist of jasmine, coriander leaf and pittosporum. Many herbivores detest the resinous pittosporums, in particular their seeds, which will stick anywhere, but some animals eat them with relish, for example the Kea (Nestor Notabilis). The flowers, white in color and star shaped, exude an odor that evokes that of the “ Fleur d’Oranger “ but fresher, more concentrated and very faintly honeyed.

At the base of the fragrance, there are cashmere wood, musk and metallic amber. Contrary to the classic amber scent which is powdery, oriental and lustful, the metallic amber accord is much more modern, nervous and explosive.

Comme des Garçons Old Factory Library series brings back the old perfume favorites

Comme des Garçons Parfum has created over 75 different perfumes since 1994, each one with its own loyal customers. The idea was to create a library of fragrances to record the entire olfactory history of the brand. Back by popular demand, the 10 first scents of the Olfactory Library are as innovative today as they were on their debut. From the first Cologne launched in 1996 to our groundbreaking Series 6 Synthetic, rediscover these Comme des Garçons Parfum classics.

We just got five of the ten Old Factory Library items in store:

1996 – COMME DES GARÇONS COLOGNE

1/ EAU DE COLOGNE

Eau de Cologne was created as a light, fresh and dynamic fragrance, a “feel good energy giving” scent. The bottom note is based on the original perfume “Eau de Parfum” with added citrus fruit and flower based fragrances. The underlying Amber gives it weight and strength. Finally comes the bouquet of freesia, magnolia and rose flowers.

Perfumer: Mark Buxton

2000 – SERIES 1 LEAVES

The concept for LEAVES, the first series, was ”The Seven Sensations”: Light, Sight, Touch, Air, Smell, Emotion and Memory. A range of five new Eau de Toilette embodying our constant research in the realm of olfactory sensations based on the idea of green.

2/ CALAMUS

Calamus is a reed plant in the marshes, green and fresh, blowing in the wind epitomized by the young bamboo leaf and the celery grains. Verdant pastures in a modern world.
