"IF EVERYBODY IS NOT A BEAUTY, THEN NOBODY IS."
Avant-garde artist Andy Warhol broke down the boundaries between art and commerce long ago declaring, art is what you can get away with. Unwilling to be contained by convention, his creations and legacy continue to cast a long, inspiring shadow of influence.
The fragrance is a new distinct perfume created by Comme des Garcons and inspired by the original citrus scent Warhol used for the 1967 artwork. The chief top notes are bitter orange, aldehydes and makrut lime zest. The crushed leaves and rind of the makrut fruit emit an intense citrus fragrance, and is used in cooking in Asia. The middle notes consist of jasmine, coriander leaf and pittosporum. Many herbivores detest the resinous pittosporums, in particular their seeds, which will stick anywhere, but some animals eat them with relish, for example the Kea
(Nestor Notabilis). The flowers, white in color and star shaped, exude an odor that evokes that of the Fleur dOranger but fresher, more concentrated and very faintly honeyed.
At the base of the fragrance, you will find cashmere wood, musk and metallic amber. Contrary to the classic amber scent which is powdery, oriental and lustful, the metallic amber accord is much more modern, nervous and explosive.
