Floriental by Comme des Garcons is a disrupted floral fragrance that challenges the traditions of perfumery to reimagine a flower that has no scent. A creative collision that blurs the lines between the floral and the oriental to create something completely new. Floriental redefines the formal rules of perfumery. With no definite top, middle or base, each ingredient emerges and recedes in creative confusion. Based around the Cistus Flower, a flower with no scent, a new floral archetype is created. Labdanum is the starting point. This warm resin, obtained from the leaves and twigs of the Cistus shrub, permeates the fragrance with an intriguing and suave oriental signature. Lavish Sandalwood reinforces the impression of opulence while Vetiver confers a deep, woody vibration. A composition highlighted with Incense and Pink pepper and laced with Plum Liqueur to enrich the floral. An odourless flower is given life, a virtual scent imagined: enigmatic, contrasted, intense.
The conclusion… addictive, extravagant, mysterious … a narcotic fusion in which the Oriental and the Floral merge into a symbiosis between reality and fiction. A new floral paradigm is born.
