Reviews of Comme des Garçons Parfum

Wow, this one has some spunk. :-)

CdG Parfum is a beast-mode spicy, oil-thick scent. Main note that I catch above others is a wet, heavy cardamom + coriander + cinnamon + nutmeg oil de resistance!! Clovebud injects its own cinnamon-pepper essence, and aside from some reinforcement from black pepper, the scent mellows out to a light spiciness meshing with sandalwood, a definite "hay" presence (bright, sweet and vegetal) coasting into mellow dry sandalwood. (Rose and honey are a bit tough to locate.)

Not for the faint of heart! I truly do like this adventurous, fresh, bright, spice-heavy experience that has a classic smell (remotely like Paul Sebastian Classic) which is dignified, masculine, and distinct in today's arena of fragrances!

This is simply 80s - very soapy. There should be a warining on this one.

Mall toilet - this is how it smells - hits HARD on Your temples, and makes You dizzy in an instance.
- the different era smell.

That is ofcourse a pretty shallow review - Becasue probably, it's a heritage, and one could aprreciate it I guess.
But If You are not that much into perfumery and will not bother to seek for particular notes in Your perfume, (just like me) - soap.

I really like this.
On my skin it smells initially like crushed pelargonium leaf, spicy green and pungent-medicinal.
This lasts a long time in a linear fashion before a slightly fruity sweetness appears in the background- I'm guessing that's the rose that others have written about.
Throughout it's time it stays beautifully dry and astringent.
A big thumbs up from me.

Do you have a big bad-ass mustache?!
What about lots of hair on your chest?
If you don't have at least one of these, forget this fragrance. this is not for you!
A great and a really unique fragrance that is suitable for a mature man.
Kids, go play somewhere else!
The opening of this fragrance is a brutal combination of lots spices, dried fruits with decent amount of sweetness and some floral notes in the background.
It's very interesting that the fruity part of the scent remind me of fruit rolls! yummy yummy!
Imagine you're eating a delicious fruit roll, then you walk into a spice store in middle east that you're surrounded with lots of different kind of spices and also there are some dried flowers like oxtongue that you can find in these type of stores.
That's it.
Very heavy projection and great longevity that stayed for about 10-12 hours on my skin.

Comme des Garcons EDP is, in my opinion, the perfect spicy rose. The opening is toxic, but don't let that frighten you. After the initial lung-burning onslaught of cloves, pepper, cardamom, and cinnamon, the fragrance reaches an intriguing equilibrium in which the honeyed-rose becomes noticeable yet wrapped in restraints and tossed screaming in a corner.

I have a tough time with rose, but CdG will definitely make it into my weekly rotation.

Curry and cloves, a special event fragrance

Cloves and curry; a great Indian meal meets the parking lot after a ska show. It is intense, powerful,
and I understand the medicinal quality that some describe. I really think I like this; clearly, something that
is not being to be a daily wear, and frankly, I think of this as I do some of the Oud fragrances; "where
am I going to wear this?" If I went clubbing more still, I could see wearing this at a goth show, or
perhaps a sweaty mosh bit. For now, it will be home on a cold winter day, while writing.
