Not only can you wear American artist KAWS’ work through his collaborations with Sacai and Nike, but you can smell like them too — or at least the artist’s interpretation of his signature smell. Partnering with COMME des GARÇONS, the duo presents the MIRROR fragrance.
The perfume is described by top notes of neroli oil, turmeric leaves, and root oil; middle notes of clean accord, orange blossom absolute; and dry notes of cashmeran, sinfonide, and benzoin resinoid. In simple terms, the scent is musky, earthy, woody, intoxicating, and hard to miss by any passersby.
Let’s admit, we all enjoy a visually appealing fragrance bottle just as much as the scent itself. The KAWS companion character, synonymous with the artist, covers the face of the bottle. For MIRROR, the character is seen drowning in a puddle of what we can only assume represents the woody liquid. Although perfume is KAWS first, it joins many under the COMME des GARÇONS Parfums label, including its infamous ROUGE. One thing is for sure, MIRROR has a star quality that the streetwear crowd is sure to sniff out.
Want to give the fragrance a try for yourself? The 100mL bottle is available now at COMME des GARÇONS and naturally, select Dover Street Market shops. If KAWS x COMME des GARÇONS shirt collaboration back in August is any hint at how sales will go, you can expect it to sell out in a matter of days.
