A CdG incense that is less heavy and very wearable even in the office in colder seasons. Good silage, good projection and a superb longevity of twelve hours on me. One of my favourite CdGs.

Synthetic cedar well done Now this is a very linear scent with little development, and not many different notes. This is probably not the most striking release by Comme Des Garcons but it's still a pretty honest composition. Nice, no more no less. Not revolutionary as other fragrances in the house' huge range yet unquestionably a CDG. If you want, this is the quintessential CDG. Synthetic cedarwood galore and frankincense, maybe copal or epoxy paint I guess is what someone calls it metallic All this is exactly to CDG what the "guerlinade" is to Guerlain.
From Avignon to Artek via Sequoia and even Wonderwood. A dry as a bone fragrance. One thing is for sure, when it comes to synthetic cedarwood, there's nothing like Comme Des Garcons.
Avignon, Kyoto, and Hinoki are all examples of some of the better regarded of the line. At the top there is cedar but it is a restrained cedar the kind of airy cedar you would get as if you were sawing a cedar board. The real core of this scent then comes in as the incense makes itself known in short order.
The smell of this incense brings to mind the smell of the box of incense cones I had as a teenager. It is incense but in a concentrated form which also had a slight metallic smell to it.
Don't get me wrong this is full throttle incense, the metallic note is light and not nearly as prominent as in Bond No. The scent transitions to full resinous pine base to go with the incense and this brings this home beautifully. It has a niche feel without getting too out there. It keeps an admirable restraint on all of its development and it is a fairly linear scent without offering up any jolting surprises. No living tree actually smells like this - in the ground or chopped up.
More unexpected were the sixtysomething women who had worn the label since the s, and who were curious enough about its high street reincarnation to stand in line from 6am.
Comme as the fashion industry calls it is a Japanese label known for its uncompromising collections, offbeat catwalk presentations and legion of diehard fans. Past collections have eschewed trends in favour of conceptual themes such as deliberate bad taste.
At the label's most recent show in Paris, the designer posed the question: It wasn't a collection for those who liked their fashion served with sugar. But Comme des Garçons is no insignificant indie label. Mainstream designers, notably Marc Jacobs, admit to being fans of the label, citing year-old Kawakubo as an inspiration.
If Kawakubo is one of fashion's influential rebel leaders, then in a way it makes sense that she should team up with a commercial giant outside her comfort zone. And it has resulted in clothes that are, for the most part, great buys. The piece collection of men's and women's clothes is well-priced, reflective of the designer's main line, and made from decent fabrics. Kawakubo often uses utilitarian, non-luxury fabrics such as boiled wool in her mainline collections, so no compromise is necessary in this respect.
On the hanger they admittedly represent the scarier side of avant-garde fashion, but once on they will work for some particularly if they are worn with heels rather than Comme's suggested flat gym shoes and are a cheap yet fashion-insider way into one of next season's trends.
