Comme des Garçons - Eau de Parfum
A fragrance that launched the Comme des Garçons perfume line in 1994, Comme des Garçons Eau de Parfum still amazes with its complexity and avantgarde spirit. It evokes the philosophy of Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçons’s founder, with its melding of Eastern and Western influences as well as its uncoventional structure.
The composition unfolds like a Japanese scroll, with notes of cedarwood, labdanum and sandalwood providing an elegant, dusky backdrop, against which cardamom, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and black pepper form delicate, scintillating arabesques. The animalic sweetness of honey smoothes the transition between spicy and woody accords, which lends the composition a refined finish.
