    Default 3 new scents - Comme des Garcons Clash

    I'm excited to try these!

    Now Smell This reported about these here.

    Comme des Garçons will celebrate their 25th anniversary as a perfume house by opening a Dover Street Parfums Market in the Marais district of Paris. The store will open in early October, and will stock the full line of Comme des Garçons fragrances, in addition to beauty and fragrance items from other brands, including Gucci and Byredo.

    In conjunction with the store opening, Comme des Garçons will introduce Clash, a new collection of three fragrances. Celluloid Galbanum, Chlorophyll Gardenia and Radish Vetiver are described as “bringing together elements that were never meant to be associated in surprising alliances”. I will update with notes and other details when I can.

    Sounds interesting. Probably something I want to sample rather than own, but to be honest the combinations don’t sound like such a clash. I can see radish working with vetiver although I’d imagine it’s a tricky note to use in any scent. I’m assuming chlorophyll gardenia is a green gardenia scent. I have no idea what celluloid smells like. A bit plasticky?
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    They sound interesting! I always enjoy sampling Comme des Garçons offerings.
    You can't buy good taste.

    I’m most interested to sample Celluloid Galbanum.

    I must admit the radish one caught my eye.

    Has anyone ever done a radish scent (besides maybe Demeter or CB I Hate Perfume)?

    Would love to visit that store in Paris.

    Hope they got some accomplished perfumiers to create those new scents

    I'm wondering how many panty-dropper/compliment threads will ensue once Radish Vetiver hits the market?

    The real question is, does your post count as the first one?

    Celluloid actually has an interesting synthetic smell. I have a bunch of vintage celluloid costume jewelry (it replaced Bakelite as a material), and it has a rather appealing scent.

    But radish is the one that intrigues me here. I'll bet they achieve it with a pepper accord. Radishes smell very peppery to me.
