Stephen Jones Perfume produced by Comme des Garcons

Stephen Jones x Comme des Garcons Perfume

Check out this perfume by Stephen Jones named “The Meteorite crashing into a Violet.” You might know Stephen Jones as a British hatmaker or art buff, but this perfume directed by him and produced by Comme des Garcons will definitely stun you. Celebrities like Kylie Minogue, Beyoncé, the Rolling Stones and Gwen Stefani have all wore Stephen Jones hats, but would this one sells, I am certain. One of his most enthusiastic collaborators is Rei Kawakubo, alter-ego of Comme des Garçons, who asked him to create a unique perfume to reflect his essence. The result is a fragrance with dominant violet notes, accompanied by clove, rose, cumin and vetiver. The fragrance was created by well-known perfumer Antoine Maisondieu of Givaudan. And the packaging? It’s an old ink bottle similar to the bottle dating from 1890 which inspired the designer. Futuristic and rococo, decorative and innovative, strong and beautiful, whimsical and strange, this is the first collaborative fragrance “du genre”, and should be loved by all Lolita san.
