Description

The very aldehyde-y opening, paired with flower oxide notes, confers a metallic effect. In the heart, the blend of May rose and lilac brings the fragrance a lightly almondy facet … together, they make the whole fairly hard to classify. The close combines two fairly surprising accords: industrial-strength glue and adhesive tape! A dash of styrax orientalizes the composition. Perfumers: Antoine Maisondieu and Antoine Lie, Givaudan.

Scotch-tape flower

History

Japanese fashion house Comme des Garçons unveils a surprising new eau de parfum named simply Comme des Garçons. The brand deliberately chose not to give the scent a name, just as they decided to present it in a “trashy” bottle. Comme des Garçons could have rejected this lopsided, deformed looking bottle, but instead, they chose to give it a chance to exist. As for the fragrance, it interprets the smell of a scotch-tape flower, an imaginary scent that blends waves of industrial-strength glue and adhesive tape… ‘Sometimes, almost without realizing it, we can stumble across beauty’, the house declares, as an explanation for this off-beat concept.

Range

Eau de Parfum 3.4 oz.

Bottle

The unusual, conceptual transparent bottle looks like a sort of lopsided pear with bubbles trapped inside it.
