    My favorite is the original Comme des Garcons Parfum.

    For hot weather, Vettiveru.

    Avignon and Zagorsk are my favourite from the incense series, both are very churchy, (but the whole incense series is brilliant), I like the original CdG parfum (spicy rose, with lots of clove and nutmeg), Cdg2 Man and Sequoia from the red series. One of the Guerrilla series ( i think the number two) I remember to be a lovely floral. It is a very good house in my opinion, with extravagant fragrances.

    I've tried many and own(ed) a few and among those I love Jaisalmer, CdG 2 MAN and Vettiveru. But if I had to choose one only, it'd be 2. It's a very special fragrance to me.

  12. #12

    Default Re: Best Comme des Garcons

    I love Incense Series: Ouarzazate, lovely and very versatile. Not the most interesting fragrance from the house, but by far the most wearable one for me, year-round. I suspect that Odeur 53 makes a great hot weather scent.
    Comme des Garçons Parfum, 2 Man, White, Avignon, Kyoto and Monocle Scent One: Hinoki are all marvellous, too.

    Think I got mine from luckyscent.

    I enjoy Avignon, Quarzazate, and Vettiveru enough to have picked up bottles. I have many samples I've yet to test from CdG so my experience is limited.

    I'd say the smooth Vettiveru is a great year-round scent (vetiver in the same ballpark as L'Occitane, Roger & Gallet, etc.).

    Avignon.

    The Original EDP, 2 Man, and I will say the Anbar Cologne is one of the longest lasting EDCs I have ever worn. It behaves more like an EDT.

    I haven't smelled L'homme Sage yet, but I could imagine that the fragrances from Divine would be quite different than CdG.

    Strangely i've just received in the post today a full bottle of Avignon and a sample of Kyoto.
    On first test i do prefer the Avignon and it has much better longevity (Kyoto disappeared quite quickly on me).
    Of the other CdG i've tried, i haven't disliked any of them as was very impressed by Wonderwood and it may be a future purchase.

    so... as you can see we're having trouble just choosing ONE. Ie they do a lot of good work.

    IMO: Avignon and Palisander.
    NEW SPLIT - Tom Ford Lavender Palm 50ml in Atomizer - DISCONTINUED!. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Aside for Series 7 & 8, I think most of their scents are worth smelling. My favorite would be calamus, followed by the original and then the colognes & synthetic series.

    I just purchased CDG 2 man. On paper, it smelled nicely strange and churchy. However, on skin in the current 90F weather here in DC, the lemony part is stronger, and it works perfectly as a fresh but interesting summer fragrance, almost an alternative to vetivers or citruses.

    Remember how they started: GDG is literally a designer 'house' - read brand. The first concepts were mildly irritating, 'notes' of hot light bulb and the like. Odeur 53 and Odeur 71. Then it made 'pfft' and all that uplifting irony was gone in favour of an irritatingly huge selection of fragrances in rows and collumns, series, individual concepts, alterations, even flankers - how many are they by now, still less than 71? I personally don't care for them anymore. I hoard my Odeurs and I'm done.

    Odeur 53 and too Odeur 71 are perfect summer scents. Hold against the contemporary 'fresh' mess, they really shine with sophistication.

    edit: I get the concept of these rows and collumns scents, sherbet, incense etc. But, they should have been less exepnsive to make sense. To have say 5 -simple- fragrances from various series would make sense. Alas, it is too costly for the costumers who may be addressed by the concept. Teens, and maybe even young mid twenty professionals won't be able to pay about 400$ to follow the idea. Spreading a whole set of easy, clear simple 'spot-on-x'-scents over the individuals of the crowd makes perfect sense. Again, it was to costly to work. I blame them for that.

    You've got an amazingly good point there, WildThingy. This kind of stuff would be perfect for a brand more like A Lab on Fire, with their 15 mL for $15. That's the perfect way for people to get into concept fragrances like that. If CdG doesn't do it, ALoF should. I would gladly spring for "Odeurs" in a smaller format.

    Me too! it would be amazing to have Odeur 71 in a 30ml format. They used to do a travel format in the past by now they stuck with the 200ml that is way too much for me after more than a decade of wearing. It may sounds contraddictory but now I'll be fine to just have some and wear it every once in a while...
