Comme des Garcons Wonderoud

What was a big trend in fragrances last year continues into 2014 with Comme des Garcons following up its Wonderood scent with its boldest wooden fragrance yet, a scent designed around one of the most precious woods in nature, Oud.

And while it seems Comme des Garcons is answering market demand we have a feeling their take is going to be a special one and if you've ever smelled their previous releases you already know this will definitely be on your checklist. Wonderoud uses 100% natural oud sourced from Aquilaria trees and is blended with notes of Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Guaiac Wood.

Blackbird Triton

As much as we miss their amazing retail store, Blackbird's new focus on fragrance and skincare has proven to be a hit and the cult following behind their fragrance line is well warranted as they produce hit after hit with every new scent.

Their latest is called "Triton": "named after the moon of Neptune that was in turn named after the son of Poseidon, is a cold fragrance. Its scent carries the nose to the icy surface of its namesake moon, but it is not unrelenting. It's like being able to experience the harsh terrain from the relative comfort of a warm enclosure. It's about finding and relishing the beauty of a frozen landscape." Triton's recipe has notes of violet leaf, iris root, cedar, aldehyde, incense, mimosa, carrot seed, dry amber, vetiver, styrax, and black pepper.
