Comme des Garcons Series 3 Incense: Avignon 50ml EDT
Comme des Garçons has launched the project Parfums Series 2000. Fragrances of each of the lines are united around the common topic.
Series 3 Incense was launched in 2002 and was devoted to the five main spiritual teachings of the humanity:
Avignon – Catholicism
Ouarzazate – Islam
Zagorsk – Orthodox Christianity
Jaisalmer – Hinduism
Kyoto – Buddhism and Shintoism
Each of the fragrances is named after the cities significant for those teachings.
Avignon is Catholicism, named after the city of Avignon in the south of France, the Provance region. It was a very influential Catholic centre in the 14th century. This is a smell of gothic cathedrals, their vast and high halls, gobelins and tapestries that were absorbing the sacred frankincense smell for centuries.
The top notes open in distinguishing frankincense and myrrh scent, which lead to the mysterious heart of solemn smoky and balsamic notes. The dry vanilla and soft French (Roman) chamomile notes tame and make this inscrutable mystery closer to us.
The main notes are several kinds of incense, chamomile, vanilla, patchouli, rosewood and ambrette.
The nose behind this fragrance is Bertrand Duchaufour.
