    Default New unisex Comme de Garcons scent 'Play'

    Just heard about the new Comme de Garcons scent, 'Play' via the Wallpaper magazine website. I think the bottle is adorable - why didn't CdG release this before Valentines Day?

    I've been looking forward to a new CdG release and the notes sound interesting (saffron is the new vanilla!).

    I wouldn't go so far as to say "new Comme de[s] Garcons scent."

    In case any one didn't notice, it looks like the new "awesome" bottle is the old Odeur 53 bottle with a sticker with a heart with eyes on it. Here's the original Odeur 53 bottle side by side with the "new one":

    Hardly a new bottle, and I am sure hardly a "new . . . scent." CdG is notorious for re-releasing a number of its scents--mostly CdG EDP and CdG 2 EDP-- in funky, souped up versions of their original bottles.

    It seems this time, uncharacteristically, they're actually going to modify the formula a little, but I suspect "a little" is what we should expect.

    As the reviewer notes: "A simple cardboard box and a similarly angular bottle inside give it a childish innocence not a million miles away from the studio’s original plan for the scent." Some how, I suspect the fragrance itself is not going to be "a million miles away from . . . the original."

    Play (tongue-in-cheek) - indeed.
