BEAUTIFY: Commes Des Garcons’ Blue Invasion

It shouldn’t smell good. But it does. Scratch that- it smells amazing. One of the three new Blue fragrances from Commes Des Garcons, Cedrat, is a mix of cedarwood, metallic rose and bitter quinine accord. Zesty, punchy and strangely extremely wearable- this eau de parfum easily falls in our Top Ten summer fragrances.


Considering the popularity of Commes’ 2 fragrance- the three scents that make up the Blue collection seem like they’re strong enough to rival. Commes des Garcons haven’t labelled these (as with all their perfumes) ‘for women’ or ‘for men’, although 2 is most often worn by men. But it’s worn by men because women like it so there’s always a compromise there. Blue Cedrat, however, I can see being worn by women due to it’s light notes. But don’t be shy boys- try them all out. The two other scents- Blue Santal and Blue Encens are perhaps more easily appreciated, but it’s Blue Cedrat that has us hooked. Quite simply because we’ve never smelt anything like it before.
