COMME DES GARÇONS FRAGRANCE
A little bit cool and a little bit tongue-in-cheek, this new fragrance is classic Comme des Garçons. The Andy Warhol’s You’re In scent looks back to the 1967 original fragrance, which notoriously consisted of Coke bottles painted silver and filled with citrus perfume. All well and good until Coca-Cola put an abrupt stop to the enterprise with an unequivocal cease-and-desist letter. Luckily, although this fragrance is inspired by that citrus scent, it’s a lot more appealing, thanks to notes of jasmine and bitter orange.
