New Perfumes: Pharrell Williams Creates a New Fragrance with Comme Des GarçonsBy: Jerrica Tisdale - March 16, 2014
Actual talent comes second to some celebrities’ ability to mix chemicals for fragrances. So finding a talented celebrity who also can invent a great new scent can be a rarity. When a prestigious company and a critically acclaimed musician combine to create a new perfume, the results are intoxicating.
Singer Pharrell Williams collaborated with Japanese luxury brand company Comme des Garçons to make his first fragrance. Comme des Garçons’s partnership with Pharrell marks the company’s first collaboration with a musician. The unisex fragrance is entitled GIRL, after Pharrell’s most recent 10-track album, which was released on March 3. No details have been leaked yet about Pharrell’s new GIRL fragrance. But, while expressing admiration for the seven-time Grammy winner and Oscar nominated singer, Comme des Garçons’ owner Adrian Joffe spoke of Pharrell’s pre-production vision for the perfume.
Vogue Australia reports that Joffe revealed: “This is the first time we have created a fragrance for a musician and I can think of no greater talent and no greater gentleman to have done this with…Pharrell knew exactly what he wanted the perfume to smell like right from the beginning.”
Pharrell told Women’s Wear Daily this about Comme des Garçons, “As one of my favorite designers once said, ‘Comme des Garçons is your favorite designers’ favorite designer… the top of the top, the best of the best.”
Besides the GIRL scent, Pharrell recently announced that he will collaborate with G-Star RAW and Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo for an upcoming clothing line. Additionally, the song Pharrell performed at the Academy Awards, ‘Happy,’ recently took the Billboard number one spot.
Aside from Pharrell’s music, people often talk about his bold fashion choices, everything from his memorable Grammy’s hat to wearing shorts pants at the Academy Awards. So whatever perfume Pharrell produces, it’s sure to challenge the senses.
Pharrell’s GIRL fragrance hits stores in September 2014.
