As Robin here at Now Smell This and I decided who would review the new Comme des Garçons Blue Invasion trio of perfumes, she said: “I thought they were all nice, but maybe CdG needs to get out of this woody/incense sandbox? They have done some really great stuff…but even their weirder stuff is no longer surprising. Maybe there are no surprises left?”
Robin and I have three points of agreement:
- I like the new Blue Invasion perfumes;
- I agree Comme des Garçons has driven the woody incense genre to a dead end (or at least into a cul-de-sac, where it goes round and round and round);
- I also wonder if there are many surprises in store for me as a dedicated perfume sniffer.
Now, to Blue Invasion….
