    Default Comme Des Garçons: Amazingreen! A new fragrance!

    From the BN "News section"



    Cult perfume house and fashion brand, Comme des Garçons, is to launch a new perfume, Amazingreen, on the 3rd of July. The perfume, unveiled to the press in London yesterday contains a mix of green, vegetal notes and mineral notes that include ‘flint’ and ‘gunpowder’.

    Speaking in London’s Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green, in a grandly panelled room with a vast back-drop wall specially decorated in green, and a pile of bottles, tossed gallery-style on the floor, perfumer Jean Christophe Herault said through an interpreter: “It was important for me to express the strength of nature, in particular the jungle. I didn’t want this to be a twee interpretation of green. I wanted this to be the apogee of green.”

    Jean Christophe Herault said he was asked by the company to come up with a green scent, but didn’t want to go for the obvious.

    "What I was trying to avoid was using the main ingredients used in green perfumes like galbanum, which is so often used in women’s perfumes. I also wanted a departure from using citrus at the top to achieve a fresh and green note. Instead it’s quite original the way Amazingreen has been created, the choice of ingredients are quite singular or distinctive."

    The vegetal, green accord is described as a ‘kaleidoscope’ by the perfumer who says that the traditional fragrance pyramid does not apply to this creation. “This is a more binary creation” he says, “the vegetal and the mineral running side by side.”

    Amongst the singular green notes which the perfumer pointed out in Amazingreen was ivy leaf, which he pointed out was at once familiar and comforting to people. “The smell of ivy reminds me of my childhood in Normandy, it has quite a strong emotional attachment, but it’s also a common smell that people will find recognisable. It’s got a bit of a crunchy and crisp smell, an energetic smell running through its veins.”

    Green Pepper was also used, which although spicy, does have a recognisable vegetal note to it: “It’s often called the ‘cold spice’ because you have the contrast between something sensual and something cold,” says Herault.

    Under the mineral accord, the perfumer included his recreation of the smell of ‘silex’, the latin word for ground flint stone.

    The ‘explosive’ accord includes vetiver, smoke and a recreation of the smell of gunpowder. “The gunpowder adds a rebellious and illicit presence” he says, “the vetiver brings refinement and elegance.”

    Asked if such unusual notes created a problem as far as IFRA guidelines were concerned, the perfumer said: “It’s a game. All you need is your imagination to get round the regulations and create what you want to create”, though he added “of course we respect IFRA rules which protect the consumer.”

    Amazingreen was commissioned by the Comme des Garçons (who have a licensing agreement with Spanish perfume House Puig) and Jean Christophe Herault says he worked very closely with the marketing department to develop the perfume. It is likely that this latest addition will sit with the more mainstream, yet interesting, end of the Comme des Garçons stable. The perfume is unisex.

    Amazingreen will be available exclusively through Selfridges in the UK from the 3rd of July and then through selected outlets on the 3rd of August including escentual.com, Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

    No details on US as yet, but will update if we hear.

    After releasing that "A New Perfume" with the industrial glue and scotch tape note, trust CdG to release something like this. I like it!

    However...what does gunpowder smell like?

    Interesting, but I am not sure about the green pepper. Its the kind of note my nose homes in on, and it might distract from the rest of the show. Worth a try though.

    Like others here, I suspect some sort of variation on French Lover (not too keen on over-peppered scents, though) but will definitely sample. Interesting.

    I too am concerned about the green pepper note mentioned by Herault. I have had that accord ruin a fragrance a few times (it annoyingly pops up in L'Artisan's Piment Brulant and ever-so-often I catch a whiff of it in Zagorsk by CdG).

    The gunpowder note sounds lovely. I smell gunpowder in Serge Noire by Serge Lutens and Essence of John Galliano by Diptyque - which only serves to enhance those fragrances.

    Sounds test-worthy but I'm not a fan of ivy. No memories of a childhood in Normandy for me; rather, annual battles over custody of a long fence.

    Those were the two fragrances I imagined to. but I imagine the texture will be less sheer plastic than either one of those due to the Orris Root and smoke. I predict a more Amouage texture. Like Amouage Memoir was thrown in with those two.

    TdH + French Lover sounds about right. In other words, IES overload.

    I'm hoping that's not the case, as gunpowder as a note is an awesome concept - I've just never smelled it executed well.

    When I think gunpowder I think of the awesome smell I get after shooting a shotgun while dove hunting. The empty shells and post shot smell is awesome. That or the smell of the capguns. Either way if done right, I think it could be great! the only time I smelled anything close to a good gunpowder note it was in Halston Man Amber where it had a firecracker type smell in it.

    This fragrance sounds amazing.

    I love the smell of gunpowder-- maybe not so much when it hangs in the air following the sound of some low IQ hoodlum popping off shots abruptly in my neighborhood at 3AM... But I love that aroma when it accompanies taking my trusty Walther pistol to the range.

    I love green pepper as well.

    I'm not a big fan of the ovaloid CdG bottles-- but I'll definitely check this out when it becomes available.

    Sounds a bit like Lancome's L'Aquatonic which is a fabulous fragrance with a beautiful green pepper note. I'm intrigued.

    I agree, the recent launches have been forgettable, or in the case of "A New Perfume", unforgettable for all the wrong reasons! But I always come back to CdG, I have decants of Red, Green and Black coming, and everything new they put out is a must-try for me.

    Sounds like it could be fun. So far the CdG house hasn't thrilled my nose enough to purchase a bottle.

    Cdg in general just tries to be too trendy for me. I'll overlook the trendy part if it smells good.

    i've thought that too. Most other brands new releases are aspiring to be on-trend, but CdG is usually something aspiring to be ahead of its time or trend-setting.

    Actually pretty intrigued by gunpowder and green pepper...I'll need to try this.

    I'm hoping that's not the case, as gunpowder as a note is an awesome concept - I've just never smelled it executed well.
    Precisely what I was thinking....an Iso E Super bomb.

    Trying Amazingreen now and, with my biggest disappointment, I've to report that it SUCKS! Being myself a CDG freak I will surely give it a couple more wearings before coming with my final virdict but, so far, the fragrance is extremely underwhelming. French Lover? Naaaaaa, TdH? (thanks god) naaa...

    The fragrance strikes as incredibly safe and modern (in the uninspiring and uninteresting meaning of the words), green and kinda watery with loads of woody amber. Peppery and fizzy with a huge dose of calone. Guys, I'm so sorry, but this is an EPIC FAIL!

    It seems like CDG is traying to desperately go mainstream, which to me means everything but good news...

    Forgot to add...it strongly reminds me of something else. A popular mainstream release which I can't actually put my finger on....scrub time.
