    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.

    Quite agree - although my bottles are not on display so that wouldn't matter

    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
    It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

    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!
