LUXE Comme des Gar


Dear Shaded Viewers,

The latest addition to the line of Commd des Garcons fragrances takes two ancient and sacred fragrances, Patchouli and Champaca. With the choice of materials and the packaging, the idea was to take the concept of luxury, defined as rarity and quality, to its extreme conclusion. LUXE Comme des Garcons takes the force of LUXE and combines it with the lightness of  an Eau de Toilette. 

The patchouli comes from Sumatra, the leaves of the plant are a member of the mint family. The origin of the name is Tamil (patchai ellai meaning green leaf). Head: white pepper, soy accord, Heart: patchouli, cedarwood, Base: vanilla, oakmoss.

 Champaca, a mythhical flower that comes from the Ganjam district of the state of Orissa in India, belongs to the flowering plant in the Magnolia family. It is famous for being used in Hindu ceremonies and by Balinese dancers. Head: white pepper, angelica, cardamom, Heart: champaca, bird pepper, Base: white  musk, iris
