Comme des Garcons
Comme des Garcons Gosha is a unisex aromatic fragrance that was created by Alexis Dadier. Gosha Rubchinskiy, photographer, artist and chronicler of Russian youth street culture has launched a fresh, urban scent for Comme des Garcons. The concept for the fragrance is skateboarding on a summer day where the wheels are burning on the hot concrete sidewalk and the smells of rubber and tar collide to create a scent of youth and freedom. It features top notes of angelica and buchu; middle notes of tangerine and chamomile; and base notes of styrax, vetiver and patchouli. Gosha is an eau de toilette, edt.
Fragrantica: "It's raw, herbal, earthy. Even the floral and citrus notes are dormant and hidden in the background. It wears close to the skin - as a scent like this should..."
Fragrantica: "a slightly offbeat unisex fragrance, appropriately summer-y. Yes, you will find the promised "accents of tar and rubber to connote skateboard wheels heating up on the pavement",3 but it's done with a light hand, and it reads as quirky rather than overwhelming. The rest of it is a green-inflected, rather dry, very casual summer cologne, citrusy in the opening and woody in the dry down, with light accents of herbal tea and vetiver."
