    Monocle Scent One: Hinoki by Comme des Garçons

    cypress and cedar-shavings, obligatory swish of a thurible, acres of pine. Starts as it means to go on and on and on. I mean, I’m the first to defend the one-dimensional smell against the so-called ‘symphonic’ perfume, but this is Beyond a Joke. Only when I’m in my grave do I want to smell so health-giving. Monocle, by the way, is a magazine for people too important to find things out for themselves and who need to be told that, for example, the most liveable cities are Copenhagen, Munich, Tokyo, Helsinki, Zurich, Vienna, in that order. But of course, you already knew that. The nose is not the ethereal Mark Buxton but the more cloddish Antoine Maisondieu.
