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.
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.
Perfumer: Bertrand Duchaufour
The freshly bloomed lily, delicate, and its green leave.
Perfumer: Florence Idier
