    Default CdG parfums*PARFUMS Series 4 Cologne

    Why is there so little info about this series from Comme des Garçons? I almost never see the fragrances mentioned anywhere, and even more seldom sold anywhere. I'm curious about them, since they seem to hide in the dark a bit.

    Series 4 Cologne: Anbar
    Series 4 Cologne: Citrico
    Series 4 Cologne: Vettiveru

    Anyone here who is familiar with them and know their story? And of course what they smell like...

    Here's info in German: http://www.gabriele-kraetschmer.de/s...h=1_31_101_228

    Notes:
    Anbar - amber, musk, mandarin and clove
    Citrico - lime, orange and rosemary
    Vettiveru - vetiver, bergamot, neroli and cedar

    All three are fresh, cooling colognes and come in HUGE 500 ml splash bottles.

    Can be bought at c/o STHLM on Götgatan Shifts. Not very exciting though, Tigs is right - the bottles are insanely huge!

    [blue]I have sampled all three, and I have some *Vettiveru*. I would have to concur with MMM and say that they're not particularly exciting. All three lack that characteristic heightened tonality one finds in CdG scents, and all three are uninspired and not at all innovative. Hard to see how they fit with the CdG ethos. Perhaps it's just as well that they're not "mentioned anywhere, and even more seldom sold anywhere".

    Alright, thanks for the replies.
    I wondered if it was some kind of bad side step from their usually high class scents that has made them fall back and pass unnoticed. I will try and smell the ones in Stockholm when I get there.

    As far as I know, C/O Stockholm is the only store in Sweden holding CdG.

    Cow Perfumery on Mäster Samuelsgtan has most of their stuff as well. And their guerilla store on Östgötagatan (might be closed by now-not sure).

    Oh yeah, Cow, I actually knew about that one too I think I have their phone number somewhere on a piece of paper, frmo the time when I wanted to get a hold of Odeur 53.

    Cow actually sells the entire L'Artisan line now as well, so do try to visit them - superfriendly staff!

    It's just colognes:-P Fresh and fleeting. Vettiveru is the best imo, but I also like Citrico.

    OT (sorry:-)
    Tig, it's nice to see you :-) Have you been on vacation?

    Nice to see you, too, Nqth! [smiley=smiley.gif]
    I have been mostly working but my "summer holiday" will finally start next week!

    Back to CdG shopping possibilities in Stockholm: I recommend Cow Parfymeri, too, visited the shop last summer, great selection (CdG, Etro etc) and even better service!

    Sounds v.good, Tig:-)


    Shifts, no problem:-) The flyer said XVIII century alchemy back on popular demand:-)


    The Colognes smell great in summer, but 500ml bottles are just insane:-)) Look beautiful on shelf, tho.
