Radish x Vetiver Eau de Parfum
Radish x Vetiver Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Comme des Garcons: Clash. The notes of this fragrance are Vetiver, radish, cypriol, gaiac
Radish and Vetiver- two roots with wildly different profiles. Vetiver, a staple of perfumery, grassy and sweet, earthy and spicy- a complex, multifaceted and often quite masculine aroma. Radish, on the other hand, not typically considered a desirably fragrant material, capable of the pungent sharpness of natural gas, but beneath the surface, possessed of a distinctive greenness and subtle citric qualities as well. An odd combination on paper, undeniably, but in the hands of Comme des Garcons, one that feels quintessentially CDG- the spice and earth of the vetiver made both more intense by the radish’s petroleum-like tones, while also softened and brightened with the green elements. A scent that feels both uniquely natural and unnatural all at once- a sexy, fresh, and dare we say cutting-edge fragrance that anyone can pull off with panache. With Clashes like this, who needs to get along?
