Summer Scents

by Eyal de Leeuw | 01.04.13

Black is the new scent of COMME des GARÇONS , a brand that one can only count to produce unusual & brilliant fragrances. The perfume is a continuation of a line launched in 2009, in response to global recession.

Black is made with black pepper from Madagascar, incense from Somalia with hints of leather as well as licorice  birch tar, and pepperwood on a cedarwood/vetiver base. Can you smell it already?

BELOW – An incarnation of a 1975 legend, created by perfumer Paul Léger – Gentleman Only by Givenchy. With mix of Vetiver, Patchouli and Leathery notes the old perfume has become and iconic fragrance, a true classic. Now Givenchy reinterprets the old master with new, bolder fragrance intended for the modern man. Opening with fresh, spicy accords of green mandarin, pink pepper, nutmeg and birch leaves, Gentlemen Only develops with a trio of fine woods (cedar, patchouli and vetiver).

A detailed review can be read at the The Grooming Guru a fellow Details Style Network writer.
And a reminder to The Garconniere’s recommended summer scent which was Van-Noten-par-Malle.
