Wonderwood by Comme des Garçons

I have a bit of a scent crush on Comme des Garçons’ fragrance, Wonderwood. It is a unisex creation and though I would prefer to smell it on a handsome bloke–I would definitely dab a bit on my own wrists to huff throughout the day.

Wonderwood is a heady concoction with a wooden heart, a hum of spices and a layer of bergamot for a twinkle of citrus brightness. In general, I am hot under the collar for woody, spicy scents and I’m smitten with this one for sure. I found it while I was poking around Odessa for bedding. My friend and I stood there having turns taking hits off the bottle like lunatics.

For Comme des Garçons’ Wonderwood fragrance launch, the company released a very cool stop-motion short film by The Brothers Quay. What a fantastic idea! The brothers are brilliant! You can check the film out, HERE.

Another lovely woody fragrance at Odessa is this candle version of Hinoki, Antoine Maisondieu’s creation for Comme des Garçons. The scent is meant to be reminiscent of Scandinavian forests and Japanese hot springs baths in Kyoto. Cypress, frankincense, moss, vetiver, pine, cedar… love.
