Artek Standard - Eau de Toilette
In a longstanding tradition of partnering with avant-garde artists and designers, Comme des Garçons presents Artek Standard, the result of a collaboration with the niche Finnish design company Artek. The daring and streamlined composition reflects the style of Artek’s founder, Alvar Aalto — a blend of Nordic traditions, purist modernism and Japanese avant-garde.
The structure of the fragrance recalls modern architectural influences, from the burnished metal of lemon, fennel and ginger top notes to the polished woods of the cedarwood base. Smoky Finnish Labrador tea and delicately sweet Twinflower Linnea Borealis recall Artek’s Nordic roots. For all of its unconventional facets, Artek Standard has a serene and comfortable aura, a perfect testament to Artek’s goal of nourishing physical and spiritual wellbeing.
