This is the first time Comme des Garçons has teamed up with a musician to create a fragrance – and what a fragrance it is.
It’s a woody, heady composition by perfumers Christian Astuguevieille and Antoine Lie featuring top notes of neroli, lavender and white pepper layered over a heart of violet, iris and styrax. The base dries down to reveal a beautifully woody quartet of cedar, sandalwood, vetiver and patchouli. ‘There should be no boundaries,’ explained Pharrell. ‘I learnt that from Comme des Garçons.’
When Pharrell Williams finally broke the silence on his new foray into the wonderful world of beauty a few month’s back, we learnt what his signature scents were growing up (Ralph Lauren Polo and Dior Fahrenheit, FYI). But did you know that after his teenage years, he didn’t wear fragrance for 15 whole years? In our books, that seems like a VERY long time.
