Comme de Garcons has come out with their newest fragrance and just in time for the holiday season. As we rushed around Paris, this past fashion week, we were pleased to stop by the Commes des Garcons office to visit a friend and snuck in the opportunity to grab a few samples and even a gift bag of the newest fragrance entitled “Amazingreen”. This is an odd name to say but, once you get use to the verbiage you realize that it is a great label and the bottle is stunning both in color and shape. But does the scent itself match up? Well Comme des Garcons have pulled out all the stops to try and deliver something new and bold – which we truly appreciate!
A burst of green lushness coupling fresh crisp notes with a blast of gunpowder – which you wouldn’t think would be pretty pleasing on the senses. The smoldering embers mingle with the green energy of the rain forest and the rush of spices. This result is modern but complex and combines top notes of fresh wild leaves which are anchored by an elemental heart of flint and coriander all given that smoky blast of gunpowder and white musk.
TOP NOTES: Palm tree leaves, green pepper, dew mist and jungle leaves.
HEART NOTES: Ivy leaves, orris roots, coriander seeds and silex.
BASE NOTES: Gunpowder accord, vetiver, smoke and white musk.
Wearing the fragrance on the skin is an experience in of itself. You find yourself catching hints of vibrant leaves then whiffs of gunpowder. It’s bold and modern but with a deep smoky heart.
Comme des Garcons’ Amazingreen is available at Barneys in NY, Selfridge’s in London, Colette in Paris and Commes des Garcons website can assist in other locations.
