PHARRELL x COMME DES GARCONS
FRAGRANCE - GIRL
Sneakers, denim, T shirts and more – is there anything that Pharrell can’t do? Brands are keen to work with the producer for that unique brand of cool that he brings to their collections. One brand that needs no help in the cool stakes, that have been working with the music superstar are Comme des Garcons.
Pharrell has been working closely with the brand to launch a unisex fragrance. Confusingly named “Girl” (so named after the women that inspire him) it is targeted at men and women and features a very cool print from street artist Kaws. The scent itself is rich and woody with hints of iris, patchouli and cedar which lighten it. The addition of white pepper, lavender and vetiver all help create a complex fragrance (as one would expect from Comme des Garcons) that works well for either sex. With unisex fragrances, there is a fear that they can be too masculine/ feminine but Girl manages to get this balance just right.
If you have shied away from celebrity scents in the past then surely the combination of Pharrell and fashion powerhouse Comme des Garcons is enough to tempt you to give it a try?
From £80 for 100ml and available at Liberty London.
