The polka dot is a symbol of Comme des Garcons. This perfume began with the image of the polka dot and a request that the fragrance be based on the osmanthus flower which blooms all over Japan in autumn. CdG's artistic director, Chrisian Astuguevieille and perfumer Lucas Sieuzac worked to recreate the scent of osmanthus and build a world around it. DOT captures the smell of the osmanthus flower but also reproduces the mysterious allure that penetrates the air of a park filled with osmanthus trees in bloom. It captures the floral and fruity notes that come from the blossoms and adds green notes to illustrate the leaves and white ambery wood to reflect the bark of the tree. Olibanum is added for a resinous touch and pepper oil is added to enhance the balsamic, spicy aspect of the frankincense. It is an Oriental floral unisex fragrance featuring notes of osmanthus, fruits, green notes, amberwood, olibanum, pepper and bitter orange. DOT is an eau de parfum, edp.
