This May, Comme des Garçons is launching the Olfactory Library which will bring back 10 iconic scents. Since the inception of Comme des Garçons Parfum in 1994, they have created over 75 different perfumes. The idea behind the library will be to exist as a record of the brand’s olfactory history. Each scent will be housed in identical white coated bottles with colored scent names paying homage to their original packaging.

The Olfactory Library will be launched exclusively at Paris Comme des Garçons Perfume shop, Dover Street Market London, New York, Ginza and all CDG shops on May 13th 2017 followed by worldwide launch on June, 19th.

100ml eau de parfum | MSRP: €80 / $95


Notes for the first 10 fragrances below.

1/ EAU DE COLOGNE
Eau de Cologne was created as a light, fresh and dynamic fragrance, a “feel good energy giving” scent. The bottom note is based on the original perfume “Eau de Parfum” with added citrus fruit and flower based fragrances. The underlying Amber gives it weight and strength. Finally comes the bouquet of freesia, magnolia and rose flowers.
Perfumer: Mark Buxton

2/ CALAMUS
Calamus is a reed plant in the marshes, green and fresh, blowing in the wind epitomized by the young bamboo leaf and the celery grains. Verdant pastures in a modern world.
Perfumer: Bertrand Duchaufour

The freshly bloomed lily, delicate, and its green leave.
Perfumer: Florence Idier
