Comme des Garcons EDP is, in my opinion, the perfect spicy rose. The opening is toxic, but don't let that frighten you. After the initial lung-burning onslaught of cloves, pepper, cardamom, and cinnamon, the fragrance reaches an intriguing equilibrium in which the honeyed-rose becomes noticeable yet wrapped in restraints and tossed screaming in a corner.
I have a tough time with rose, but CdG will definitely make it into my weekly rotation.
Curry and cloves, a special event fragrance
Cloves and curry; a great Indian meal meets the parking lot after a ska show. It is intense, powerful,
and I understand the medicinal quality that some describe. I really think I like this; clearly, something that
is not being to be a daily wear, and frankly, I think of this as I do some of the Oud fragrances; "where
am I going to wear this?" If I went clubbing more still, I could see wearing this at a goth show, or
perhaps a sweaty mosh bit. For now, it will be home on a cold winter day, while writing.
This is not a beauty, this scent is shocking, one would never imagine anything like this in perfume world, considering its almost 20 years old, that's why i give neutral and not negative:-)
I admire the courage but cant enjoy the beauty,
It smells like capsuled fish oil mixed with various spices, and a bit of honey, the dry down though gets much more pleasant and interesting , originality and quality of ingredients is not questionable, just i think it takes great individuality to put this on and truly enjoy in it:-) i would like to enjoy it from the distance!
I loved this perfume sine the very first time I smelled. I would swap my Ungaro II for a bottle of it. if anybody interested just contact me... This perfume is one of the best fragances in the contemporary perfumery and a breakground in the industry.
Maybe it's my skin chemistry, maybe it's the idea of association, but what others here are smelling as "christmas potpourri" or "pickling spices" I smell as the mainstay sports/athletic Tiger Balm. I absolutely love this stuff. And it's a heck of a lot cheaper than Heeley's version called 'Esprit de Tigre'. Just go easy on that atomizer, friends, this can get very heavy very fast.
