    Genre: Chypre

    Coming back to Comme des Garçons 2 Woman after smelling a decade’s worth of subsequent CdG releases is an odd experience. Seen from this perspective, it’s a surprisingly conventional spicy floral scent distinguished an admixture of incense and some of the same very crisp, unabashedly synthetic dry woody base notes that anchor fragrances like Zagorsk and Avignon.

    Cdg 2’s structure is almost a distillation of Caron’s Parfum Sacré, which plays on woods, incense, and rose in a style that’s at once richer, weightier, and more naturalistic. In CdG 2, Mark Buxton takes the fundamental idea and strips it down to bare essentials, eschewing any soft padding or pretense of natural origins. The result is a refreshingly translucent, yet incisive fragrance that has aged much better than many of the more dogmatic exercises in minimalist perfumery that Buxton’s work has since inspired.

    I think CdG 2’s strength, sillage, and projection are perfectly judged: sufficient to make an impression, but restrained enough for comfort. I can’t speak to anybody else’s gender assignments here, but as a man I wouldn’t hesitate to wear this for an instant.

    Its very fresh, but not as citrus fragrance, opens up wit tea-mandarin mix that is airy , light, and reminds me of morning sunshine , its floral in a way, and then i thought of iso E super, it has that type of structure, airy, light, woody, fresh, i like that citrus hint that reminds me of geranium, then a little bit of nutmeg,gives touch of sweetness, and something reminds you of incense note but modernised version,
    What struck me the most is that it reminds me of a cathedral built of spider net ,its hardly noticeable yet the complexity is there,


    This is one delicate beauty, for hot summer days:-)

    Let me preface this review by saying I live in the temperate climes of Victoria Australia. It gets dry (and down to zero Celsius sometimes) and humid (in the 30's) and then UBER dry over 40 degree Celsius at times in the summer.And I am describing CDG2... NOT CDG 2 Man or any other variant here!!! (more on 2 Man another time)! This scent is unbelievable in all conditions here. You can wear this morning noon and night at work or play. The fragrance is indescribable to me... In the BEST way. Projection is great. Longevity likewise. (When a woman sprays it twice a week on pillow slips ... you know it works well)! It is definitely masculine, but the scent is loved by women in their 20s 30s and 40s and beyond! It is one of a number of higher end EDT I prefer to use, and I am into my 3rd bottle...

    This interesting transparent renowned fragrance is a sort of subtle mix of the most interesting facets exuded by some known fragrances around some of which are for instance Black Angel Buxton, Black Aoud Montale, Declaration Cartier, Magnolia Nobile Acqua di Parma, some Costume National (Scent and Pour Homme) and Battistoni Marte Arte. The aromatic/floral/dusty refinement owns texture and lasting power for me. I detect the aldehydes for sure side by side with some inebrious spices (cumin, saffron may be). The beginning is aromatic/haldehydic and slightly herbal with its combination of juniper berries, angelica , aldehydes, orangy juice, bkackcurrant and cumin. The opening is bright, crisp/botanic, citrusy, a bit rooty and with a sort of metallic edge, the latter soon partially fading in the way to the middle transition towards a barely floral heart exuding a sort of violet/muguet/ neroli (almost peachy) kind of vibe (probably aroused by the combination of magnolia and other elements). The more the development procedes towards the end the more the smell projects out several feminine facets and i detect a sort of rose/jasmine orangy feel over a labdanum/patchouli, vetiver structure and a slightly powdery amber/cedarwood base with musky accents. Some incense is inserted somewhere in the blend on the side of resinous elements but i detect it more in the course of the run than after the crossed bourne. A respectful fragrance for the lovers of the genre which starts decidedly masculine and finally winks to the womanly side.

    Comme des Garçons 2 is a crisp, translucent floral from when Mark Buxton was breaking new ground in the late 90s. It smells better from a distance, less jarringly synthetic, and enjoyable in a metallic-sheen, spicy rose, sorta way.

    That there is a Comme des Garçons 2 Man implies that the guys on the oil rig would probably give you funny looks if you wore this one to work. I tend to agree.

    The supine, pebble-like, chrome finish bottle is witty and ingenious.

    I don't get it....soft aldehydic floral with some soft fruit thrown in. Nothing more. I get no ink note. Poor longevity and sillage. I'll go neutral because of all the glowing reviews and stick with Wonderwood.
