FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FLORIENTAL
Always known to do things a little differently – whether it be in fashion or fragrance – Comme des Garçons redefine the rules with FLORIENTAL. Reimagining the perfume of a scentless flower – the cistus flower – this brand new launch combines the worlds of floral and Ambrée fragrance to create a beautiful, shareable scent.
We’re so used to fragrances having a pyramid: top notes, heart notes, base notes. But instead, FLORIENTAL takes us on a mysterious journey through sandalwood, incense, pink pepper, with an intriguing plum liqueur enriching the floral notes. A key ingredient is labdanum – obtained from the leaves and twigs of the cistus shrub: warm and resinous, delivering seductive Ambrée flourishes, while vetiver makes for a deep, woody vibration.
It’s woody and spicy and warm – and so, so wearable. This is rule-breaking in the most stylish way…
