The deceptive simplicity and industrial whimsy that define the Comme des Garçons aesthetic has always proven to be a remarkably versatile template for all types of fragrances. Dot, the newest release from the venerable house, demonstrates this with great aplomb: a fresh, fruity floral with wonderfully unique touches of resin and green notes, Dot is both lusciously feminine, but also distinctly CDG.
Inspired not only by the smell of the Osmanthus flower but equally by the mysterious allure of a park filled with Osmanthus trees in bloom, Dot is more tone-poem than standard soliflore. The scent radiates with floral smoothness, but also with the fruity tonalities that emanates from the blossoms, the radiant green notes that illustrate the leaves, and white ambery woods that reflect the bark of the tree. Resinous olibanum gives the distinct character of a park set within a bustling cityscape, and pepper oil further enhances the balsamic, spicy aspect of the incense. The result is just as pretty as one could hope for, but with the distinctive character of another wonderfully modern Comme des Garçons creation. Like the titular white dots on the eye-catching flacon, Dot is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
