Following its European launch, Comme des Garcons is releasing a new scent, DOT, at Dover Street Market in New York today. Though the company has authored seventy-five scents, DOT is its fifth scent created in-house, and the first since 2011. The scent riffs on the polka dot, which could serve as an unofficial CDG emblem. The prime note in the scent is that of the Osmanthus flower, which grows in the parks all over Japan in the fall.
CDG’s artistic director Christian Astuguevieille worked on the perfume with the perfumer Lucas Sieuzac. They surrounded the main flower notes with those of green leaf, bitter orange, and pepper. Also, this being CDG, you get a touch of resin and white amber. This combination of notes resulted in a well-balanced and unique scent.
