COMME des GARÇONS has had an impressive track record with its fragrance venture COMME des GARÇONS Parfums, including collaborations with Stüssy, KAWS, and ERL under its belt. Now, the label has launched its latest scent: Ganja.
As the name might give away, the perfume does, in fact, smell like marijuana. Well, not really, but it's the sort of scent that tickles your nose yet smells good at the same time.
Imagined by perfumer Caroline Dumur, the aim of the scent was to "put two worlds in parallel: the urban world by the design of its bottle created by Rei Kawakubo and the extrasensory world by its woody, spicy and airy aroma."
With top notes of black pepper oil and cumin seed oil, middle of hemp accord, maté abs, lentisque abs, and dry down of guaiac wood oil, olibanum resinoid, and patchouli oil, the fragrance packs a punch.
Described as combining woody and herbaceous scents, the fragrance "promises us an escape and sensorial stimulation." That's not a lie, it is certainly different from anything else currently on the market.
The 30ml fragrance bottle comes in transparent glass, with "GANJA" written in a black graffiti-inspired font across its front, and sits pretty on top of your bathroom shelves.
If you're looking to tickle your nose or find your new signature scent, GANJA is now available for purchase online and in-store at Dover Street Market, as well as through COMME des GARÇONS Parfums, and retails at £50 ($67).
