Since 1994, the perfume division of the revolutionary fashion house, Comme des Garçon has established a long running history of pitting items found both in nature and technology against each other to develop some of the most challenging and unique niche fragrances. With their Clash – Series 10 collection released in 2019, the tradition successfully continues with three intriguing options: Chlorophyll Gardenia, Celluloid Galbanum, and my favorite, the punchy yet warming Radish Vetiver.
It’s hard not to think back to Dr Dre’s seminal album released almost 30 years ago when looking at the name of this fragrance. At a time when openly celebrating cannabis culture in the mainstream was still fairly taboo, there it was with heavy rotation on radio and music television, playing loudly in cars passing by, and launching the now household name career of Snoop Dogg. Fast forward to current times and you would be hard-pressed to find a brand in fashion or beauty, luxury or otherwise, that doesn’t have some sort of product inspired by cannabis or containing CBD in their line.
