    Artek Standard by Comme des Garçons

    Picture this:
    A furniture workshop in remote countryside near the woods...
    An architecture of timber frame structure stood tall with smooth concrete flooring...
    The machinery are switched off, yet fresh timber shavings are scattered across the cold concrete floor...

    That is the smell of Artek Standard.

    Most spicy citrus scents tend to lean toward the feeling of warmth, yet ironically this one eludes a peculiar 'cool' sensation, giving it a rather charismatic appeal. More of an 'industrial' attitude than ''urban' I would say.

    Definitely its a must try.

    On a down side, the longevity isn't that great, perhaps its my skin, but nonetheless this is not a scent for you to wear and 'show it off'. Its for you to wear when spending quality solitude time in content.

    Monocle Scent One: Hinoki by Comme des Garçons

    Picture this:
    - You walk into a temple in the far east...
    - A timber frame architecture stood tall...
    - In the centre of the hall stood a wooden religious figure carved out of a single wooden block...
    - Sweet incenses are burning away in a far distance...
    - A rather peaceful and serene zen sensation.

    Hinoki is a rather sweet woody scent. Its transparent as the scent does not morph from top to mid to bottom, but it is extremely addictive. With each sniff it takes you into this amazing journey of sweetness and serenity leaving you wanting more.

    Play by Comme des Garçons

    Picture this:
    You've been mischievous...
    You've been naughty...
    You've inflicted pain on others for your own happiness...
    The others retaliate back on you...
    You guys were just being upfront playful mates.

    That's how I would sum this fragrance. Its not your generic citrus scent, its funky with a twist - an energizing fizz that pop after you inhale. I can't really pin point it, but its extremely addictive. Its not masculine, but it can be; Its not feminine, but it can be that too. Its fresh and approachable and cheerful - just make you want to jump.!
