Description

Kyoto is part of the Comme des Garcons Incense Series (3).  This series was launched in 2002 and is devoted to the five main spiritual teachings of humanity.  Each fragrance is named after a city that is significant to those teachings.  Kyoto is Buddhism and Shintoism and is an incensey/woody fragrance composed of incense oil, cypress, coffee, teak wood, vetiver, patchouli, amber, everlasting flower and Virginia cedar. It is named after the city of Kyoto, considered the heart of Japan.  It is an eau de toilette, edt, and was created by Bertrand Duchafour.

Comme des Garcons Kyoto Reviews

Bois de Jasmin - "In Kyoto, Duchaufour chose to explore the contrast between the woods and incense by searing them with a toasty, nutty coffee. At first, it smells cool and smooth, reminiscent more of a tactile sensation–my fingertips gliding over smooth stones–rather than a particular scent. The elegant way in which incense makes its appearance is fascinating. One moment the fragrance smells like cedarwood shavings, and the next you distinctly smell the smoky, peppery darkness of incense, as if someone waved a burning joss stick around you."

 Basenotes - "I get incense , but it's the freshest and most gentle incense I think I've ever smelled...very delicate sense of smokiness....nice nuances of woodiness...very mild projection , but I thinks this fits the nature of this fragrance...bottled meditation/mindfullness...gets a touch resiny as it moves along...very nice...I wear this for relaxing , kicking back , enjoying the smell and listening to some deep soothing music...overall impression is sitting in a wooden sauna, sipping coffee, and smelling some fine Japanese incense...namaste..."

    Not My Favorite In The Line

    I'm a big fan of Incense Avignon and Zagorsk, owning bottles of each. Have yet to smell the other two. This one was decidedly not a favorite, lacking the clarity of vision of the others. I'm not sure exactly which elements give it the sort of cherry blossom scent (the teak and flower I suppose) but combined with the cologne elements it felt like an unpleasant mishmash that reminded me of health food store dehydrated sour cherry. I think, however, it would be interesting taken as a masculine

    nice but not really incense to me

    Beautiful mix of woodsy smells, plenty of cedar but this is not any more an "incense" fragrance than a cedar chest would be. Delightful but not really what I was hoping for. The projections and longevity seemed moderate at best.

    Cool and serene

    Sweet balsams, mosses and precious woods predominate. Incense is not a major player but is subtly present as the scent develops. Good longevity, stays fairly close to the skin. Quite lovely, and a personal favorite.
