Comme des Garcons
Project Renegades came about when three acclaimed perfumers broke free of the corporate world and did something really crazy. They created fragrances without any boundaries - no focus groups, no restrictions on what materials to use, and not taking themselves seriously. These three went rogue and created daring fragrances in a fictional world of three mixologist cowboys, gunslingers, world class perfumers gone rogue.
According to Mark Buxton “Fragrances aren’t daring enough. We are the Freaks who are going to change that”. Bertrand Duchaufour says “It’s not just edgy it’s over the edge.”
Mark Buxton is the nose behind most of Comme des Garçons' biggest hits. His Renegades creation is a quirky, dynamic spicy/woody floral leather. It features top notes of basil, lentisque, black pepper, cassis flower and galbanum; middle notes of bay rose and leather; and base notes of labdanum, guiaicwood, vetiver and amber. It is an eau de toilette, edt.
