Comme de Garçons has some lovely simple and beautiful perfumes. They also have some intense & exotic perfumes, so it’s safe to say they have a perfume for everyone. If you read the blog regularly you know I love rose- the scent of rose, using rosewater, scenting my home with rose….
I can’t go on and on and wax rhapsodic about Comme de Garçons Series 2: Rose eau de toilette. It simply smells like roses. It has some fruity berry notes to sweeten the rose, which is perfect. Rose soliflore scents can tend to smell sour, or lately they are laden down with patchouli and called “dark roses”. These include Stella McCartney Stella, Cabochard Cabaret, L’Artisan Parfumeur Voleur de Roses, Juliet has a Gun Lady Vengeance, Fresh Cannabis Rose…the list is almost endless. Its a nice scent combo but I’m a bit bored of it, and if I want extra stuff with my roses I am happy to layer it myself. So Comme de Garçons Rose is a perfect simple rose perfume for me. One of my favourite ways to wear it is with Kiehl’s Musk – oh la la now THAT is a sexy rose. Or, I can amp up the rose notes in a perfume like Ungaro Diva. It is sublime with tea scents as well.
So there you have it. A rose perfume that is simply, a rose perfume.
I got my Comme de Garcons Rose perfume at Barney’s in Los Angeles….
