    Default comme des garcons guerrilla 1

    I remember when this came out people pooh poohd them both, but number 1 is a scent I would think might get some ardent love hereabouts: heavy "utlitarian" industrial soapiness of aldehydes with manly musk is the effect - very contradictory and bold, conceptually, I think, a lot like odeur 53, I think, a classic/characteristic cdg composition.

    I see that now there are a number of positive reviews of this scent. Just curious how many others out there came to appreciate this one?

    I just sprayed some on my arms. I like the industrial reference you make. I find something sweet lurking below G1's surface. Something approaching gourmand, but something that would be poisonous if ingested. I'm not sure if I like the smell though. I think it's a bit too complicated for me.

    Love and admire it strongly. Wear it rarely. 1-2 sprays is all it takes.

    It conjures up a few mental images for me when I smell it: The smell of a butcher shop. Saffron. The color pink (?).

    I just picked this up recently -- I had never smelled it before. I like it a lot, though. There's something vaguely sweet, flowery-fruity in it. I'm darned if I can make out the individual notes, even when looking at a list...

    I guess I should try it again. The last time I tested it I just thought "So what?"

    Precisely, vague and not interesting is what I remember. Wearable, unlike Guerilla #2, but nothing to remember. I have both samples left so I guess I can give them a 2nd go.
