If you’ve never tried any Comme des Garçons fragrances, think of the stuff you might smell at your car mechanic–tar, machine grease, burnt rubber. Today’s collection includes more than a dozen perfumes, so there are exceptions, but by and large, they have an industrial, deliberately synthetic feel (even if it’s created through natural materials.) To some people, these are the ultimate edgy perfumes, to others–they are smells you want to cover up, rather than sport on your skin.
Whatever camp you belong to, the new Black Eau de Toilette is likely to be a love or hate perfume. Black doesn’t lie–this is a dark, potent brew. If you’ve ever dreamed of smelling like molten asphalt or barbecued ribs or some cross between the two, then your wish can come true thanks to the folks at Comme des Garçons.
