Comme des Garcons Black ~ new fragrance

Black Comme des Garçons

Comme des Garçons will launch Black Comme des Garçons in April:

2013 marks the regeneration of the BLACK COMME des GARÇONS concept through the launch of BLACK COMME des GARÇONS Eau de Toilette, an emergency, guerrilla like, spiced-up new scent.

Notes include black pepper, incense, leather, licorice, birch tar, pepper wood, cedarwood and vetiver.*

Black Comme des Garçons will be available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette.

*The notes sound similar to Comme des Garçons Black Play; no idea if they are "related".

Update: see a review of Black Comme des Garçons.

    This has caught my attention. Sounds interesting. I’m liking COMME des GARÇONS’s fumes more nowadays. My favourites are Kyoto and Wonderwood.

      I love the brand, but less so lately. Will hope for this one!

    I love Comme. They have some wonderful and unusual perfumes. That’s what I love about them. But this, does indeed sound similar to Play Black. Which I love, but I don’t want to have two that smells the same :D

    finally!! something to get excited about, after the huge let down that was amazingreen and the three play(s), i hope that they get this one right and they don’t f**** it up. please god, don’t let them f**** it up.

    • Robin says:

      Agree, they’ve not been so stellar lately. Do like this bottle, although it’s sort of plain.

    One of my favorite brands. Will check this out for sure.

    OK, they just described ELdO’s “Rien,” more of a guerrilla scent than anything I’ve experienced from CdG since their “Tar” (why can’t they just bring that one back? I miss that smell of fresh beachball!)

    I guess that’s what niche has always been: taking the risks and hits for the big brands, on speculation that they’ll succeed. I wish the big guys would show a little more guts and invention. Some new “woody” molecule came available in the last few years, and now every third new fragrance has to have it…! Thank goodness for niche.

    Was just about to comment, when I saw the above comment, and was what I was thinking, exactly. Rien ! Unless they bombed it with vetiver.

  7. Merlin says:

    I like the idea of an emergency scent: every first aid kit must have one!

  8. Joe says:

    I really loved Play Black and I’m still toying with getting a bottle since it’s such a great scent and easy to wear. If this is similar, I don’t understand their marketing, but it will smell good.

  9. donanicola says:

    “guerilla like” WTF? And 100ml??
    Apart from that, I do love the sound of the notes so look forward to sniffing!

    Now wondering about that emergency. Is this like smelling salts? Cleansing the air? Disinfectant? Mosquito repellant? Pepper spray? Fast-acting sexual attractant?
