Olfactive FX.

Unlike earlier colour-coded series from Comme, this new, Blue group have been released in Comme's signature pebble bottle. In keeping with the companies' sometimes radical, often playful approach to perfumery, this series proposes an olfactory paradox. By presenting three traditionally warm notes: sandalwood, cedar and incense as ozonic, cool and almost marine in character, they each confound predictable olfactory behavior. Cleverly signaling the chilled association with the blue and silver graphics, the idea is reinforced by the irresistible tactile connotations of the flask: a water-smoothed rock, a complex, naturally occurring form. Each of the three relate to the house style, a certain linearity, a certain simplicity, but they are linked by a cleverly tweaked breeziness which animates what might more often be used as bass-notes.
