Established in 1973 by Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçons has always been about subversion, anti-establishment, and the element of surprise in Guerilla warfare. The queen of the avant-garde, Kawakubo’s approach to fashion is anti-fashion.
The latest fragrance by perfumer Jean-Christophe Herault. M. forComme des Garçons is no different. Following its predecessor Wonderwood, Amazingreen is singly a parallel of one green and one mineral. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and Amazingreen immediately transports you from urbanity to the wild forest.
The fragrance undeniably evokes its namesake. Amazing green, amazingly fresh. The green comes from the top notes of verdant and natural wild leaves, settling with an elemental heart of flint and coriander, and here comes the signature Comme des Garçons twist – finishing with a smoky explosion of gunpowder and white musk.
Like the morning after a clash of intense warfare and gunfire, the scent of gunpowder, smoke and flint linger, mingling with the green freshness of the jungle and effervescence of spices.
