BLACK COMME des GARÇONS PERFUME
I am really trying to be conscious about the amount of black I keep in my life — my closet is ready for a death any day. My excuses for wearing it are wearing thin (looks good, makes me slim, can’t tell if it’s dirty), but I’ve made a pact with myself that when the warmer weather decides to stick around for longer than three days, I will warm up to color. How much color is yet to be determined. I will also be able to wear black everyday if I want to without anyone seeing, thanks to Comme des. BLACK is the new fragrance from CDG, a scent described as “urgent, guerrilla-like, spicy, an incarnation of the sub-line’s dark and mysterious, yet ultimately playful, sensibilities. The top notes are a mix of exotic African accords – black pepper from Madagascar and incense from Somalia — that open up to a heady heart of leather, liquorice, birch tar and pepper wood. Drying down with a woody base of vetiver and cedarwood, the scent comes in a suitably black-based bottle and packaging and will be available at the beginning of April in-store and online at retailers like NUMBER 3.” Thanks Hypebeast. Can’t wait to add it to my scent stock.
