    Yep we have it in TK Maxx here. If you like Fracas and similar tuberose-heavy scents, it's worth a try.

    Have never followed Pharrell...but inevitably when a new song comes on that sticks in my head , and makes me want to dance (and I don't dance) - whether it's by him, his band(s), or another artist - turns out Pharell has had his hands on it. He just has the ability to mix the old school sound with the completely new (or futuristic) one, like no one else. Talented enough that I completely forgive his ridiculous hat. I actually can see his aesthetic and that of CdG, in there respective genres, working very well together. AND, as mentioned by others, he chose CdG - instant points, and I think it says something.
    Clap your hands if you will give the new CdG/Pharell a sniff. I will.
    The name G.I.R.L.? He is the most honest celebrity to come out with a perfume. He's not bothering to pretend that it is separate from his brand. It is always about a celebrity's brand, and with the name, he's basically said so from the gate.

    +1. It's a shame that a board full of fragrance enthusiasts can dismiss it just like that. Not a good example for fragrance newbies, when celebrity fragrances would be the easiest way for them to appreciate fragrance in general to start off their 'journey'.

    I don't know him either but a quick look shows that aside from having a huge enthusiasm for everything musical and arty, he also has a huge charity thing for deprived kids. Those who redirect wealth instead of keeping it must be good people underneath. CDG wouldn't choose him for nothing surely? It looks like a pretty symbiotic relationship.

    I'm sure there is business involved. Sure, they won't get involved with a horrible person, but long as they're decent attaching the CDG production to PW's name is big.

    Well, considering that plenty of big names in fashion and fragrance have been (or have been closely associated with) racists, bigots, anti-Semites, and misogynists, it's probably always safer to evaluate these things by smell alone. Still, genuine right-onnery is always refreshing.

    I just hope the bottle has a ridiculous, over-sized Smokey The Bear meets Canadian Mounties like hat as it's cap....to keep in theme with the ones Pharrell has been so fond of as late.

    Yes, ugly bottle, but apparently the cartoonist is a friend of Pharrell's. The perfumer is Antoine Lie, which gives me hope. More info: http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/05/22...new-fragrance/

    I heard Pharrell on Howard Stern, do a little more research on him, he is a classically trained musician and was labeled a child prodigy in the drums. He also attended the most coveted and impossible to get into school for the arts. A lot more info. on him but I'm not going to rehash it all and I'm not even a fan of rap or whatever music he makes, but I'm not saying i dont respect it.

    I think he's incredibly talented. I am only not a keen lover of GdC fragrances.

    There is currently a show running in Paris he co-curated. Voilà, voilà.

    He curated an exhibit at the Toronto Design Exchange called "This is not a toy". If you see what is on display the bottle design wouldn't surprise you. He has a large collection by the same designer. Yikes

    Pharrell Williams is not only talented (I mainly listen to him infused with Daft Punk, didn't know the Happy song until my 13 year old showed me on youtube) he's also a good person. I am amazed at the wholesale dismissal of this collaboration. Well, actually, I'm not amazed, it's to be expected. lol I can't wait to try it!

    Pharell is part of a producing group called 'The Neptunes'. They have produced for a rap group named 'Clipse', and cocaine is a frequent running theme for them, and Pharell has appeared in a song recently named "Move That Dope".

    I'm well aware of Pharrell's association with Clipse (Grindin' was one of my favorite songs back in the day) and that's still quite a reach, but whatever. Just about any celebrity can be 'linked' to drugs somehow, but unless they were actually caught doing them, I wouldn't make that association. Do you wonder if Beyonce's perfumes smell like cocaine because she's married to Jay-Z? How about Tim McGraw - there've been rumors about him and Faith Hill's cocaine use. The only fragrance I've smelled that actually smells like cocaine is Tuscan Leather.

    Quote from Hypebeast:-

    "Themed around Pharrell’s recent declaration of love for the fairer sex, the often well-received scents from CdG are paired with a bottle orchestrated by close friend KAWS. The Antoine Lie-developed scent features notes of iris, styrax, violet, patchouli and cedar. Look for the Pharrell Williams x KAWS x COMME des GARÇONS “GIRLS” Fragrance to be available at select COMME des GARÇONS stockists globally."

    Details, details, Robbie! Does it have the dry woods thing that CdG seem so enamoured with? Is it unisex as promised?
