Wishlist – Dover Street Market perfume

Photo via shop.doverstreetmarket.com

Jeg køber sjældent nye parfumer, men i Japan forelskede jeg mig i denne fra Comme des Garcons. Den hedder Dover Street Market, ligesom firmaets vidunderlige (og meget dyre) butik i Dover St. her i London.

Selve duften er lidt maskulin og træagtig og som de fleste andre af deres parfumer er den unisex. Noterne består af bergamot, mandarin, sort peber, koriander, røgelse, enebær, cedertræ, labdanum, patchouli og fyrretræ. Flakonen er designet af mærkets fabelagtige grundlægger, Rei Kawakubo.

Det er bestemt ikke alle, der vil kunne lide den. Men jeg har altid foretrukket de tungere, søde og krydrede dufte frem for de lette og blomsteragtige. Tidligere favoritter har været: Chanel no. 5, Cristalle, Coco Chanel, Miss Dior, Narciso Rodriguez for her, Scent by Costume National og Agent Provocateur.

Jeg købte den ikke, da jeg var i Comme des Garcons-butikken i Tokyo, da jeg ikke kunne retfærdiggøre at svinge Visakortet mere. Men så er det godt, at de sælger den hos Dover Street Market, og den er endda lidt billigere end i Japan. Pris: 50 pund.

English: While in Japan I fell in love with this Comme des Garcons perfume. It’s called Dover Street Market just like the company’s mesmerizing boutique/warehouse in Dover St. in London. If you haven’t been there you should definitely go. It’s amazing, although very expensive.

The fragrance is woody, peppery and musky (the notes include bergamot, mandarin, black pepper, coriander, incense, juniper berry, cedar, labdanum, patchouli and pine). As a lot of their other perfumes, it’s unisex. The bottle is designed by the company’s incredible founder Rei Kawakubo.

This perfume is not for everyone, but it’s actually not as heavy as it sounds as a lot of the heavier notes evaporate quite quickly. But then again I’m biased as I don’t like my perfumes too light, fresh or flowery. Some of my favourites through the years have been: Chanel no. 5, Cristalle, Coco Chanel, Miss Dior, Narciso Rodriguez for her, Scent by Costume National and Agent Provocateur.

I didn’t buy this one in Japan as I had already spent too much money, so I was very happy when I found it on Dover Street Market’s website. Even better: it’s 10 pounds cheaper here than in the Comme des Garcons store in Tokyo. Price: 50 punds.
