    Default Help needed re Comme des Garcons

    A friend I met on holiday sprayed some Comme des Garcons on my sweater. It was incredible stuff. It was very sweet, more akin to a womans fragrance, but it lasted for days, weeks on my sweater and I grew very fond of the smell. I tried to locate it in the basenotes directory, but I am not sure which one it is. The bottle was the lay down style one from C.d.G. It was a highly polished silver colour with the thin sketched no.2 on it.
    I am confused because there is another Comme des Garcon no.2 , but this one smells completely different.
    Any help much appreciated !!

    It's the original Number 2 from 1999, it's unisex. The other one, Number 2 Man is from 2004 and it is a masculine scent. They are both still in production. I have seen Number 2 in a Pillow version for cheap on line.

    Also, the CdG 2 Ruggles refers to originally came in an edt. Later it came out in an edp and the edt became hard to find (or hard for me to find). The two are slightly different, but in terms of dense v. not dense smell, the smell itself being the same. It might make no diffrence to you, but don't be surprised or confused if you track down both.

    Great scent by the way. I must agree with you.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    Yeah David, Ruggles is correct. The one you're looking for, CdG 2 is the only one in a polished silver bottle (flat horizontal bottle) - the other one CdG2Man is brown amber glass.

    They are such different scents.

    yeah it is kinda confusing...the one in the amber bottle is nice, but odd...it sort of reminds me of how a hair salon smells, with all the shampoo and products being used...its nice, its just kind of different! I have never tried one in the silver bottle, though it always interested me because i am pretty sure it has ink as a note...leave it to cdg!
