Pharrell x KAWS for Comme des Garçons ‘Girl’ Fragrance

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 by Wendy Lam

Pharrell Williams teamed up with Comme des Garçons for his first unisex fragrance, Girl. According to WWD, the fragrance was conceived by Williams, and created by Christian Astuguevieille, creative director of Comme des Garçons Parfums, with Antoine Lie of Takasago. It is produced and distributed by Comme des Garçons Parfum. The woody fragrance features top notes of neroli, lavender and white pepper; middle ones of iris, styrax and violet, and base ones of vetiver, patchouli, cedarwood and sandalwood.

Since I collect interesting fragrance bottles, I was immediately intrigued by the bottle and packaging, especially since the artwork was done by one of my faves, KAWS! The bottle, logo and packaging have been designed by House + Holme.

“When I do a collaboration with brands, I do them with notable masters, so that I can experience the true purpose of collaboration, which is to learn. So I only work with masters,” he said. “We had the best nose in Paris, I was working with the best brand — Comme des Garçons is your favorite designer’s favorite brand — so there was not much of a struggle, because I was working with the masters of the artistic universe.”

The 100-ml bottle is priced at $135, while a 10-ml. travel size version costs $30. Girl will launch at Dover Street Market London on September 1st, and in US on September 5th. It will be sold at all Dover Street Markets — in Tokyo, London and New York — and at Sephora, via an exclusive partnership, in the US, Canada and France.
