CDG Does Blackpepper

I have always been a huge fan of  COMME des GARCONS  fragrances. There is always something interesting and unexpected in the notes they choose to explore – some call it weird, I call it wonderful. To add to their ever-expanding fragrance line, the garcons have come up with Blackpepper.

Described as “an electric collision of molecules: the crash of spicy pepper seeds suspended within infinite darkness.” The scent features notes of dry Madagascan pepper, cedarwood and akigalawood – which comprises patchouli and agarwood. These have been blended with the caramel resin of tonka bean, resulting in a very smoky wood scent that’s softened with a musky accord. It’s wood. It’s smokey. It’s pepper. It’s perfection

COMME des GARCONS Blackpepper is now on sale at Dover Street Market.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
