Comme des Garcons Concrete ~ fragrance review

Comme des Garçons Concrete brand image

Comme des Garçons’ latest fragrance is called Concrete. But Comme des Garçons says the fragrance isn’t about concrete at all — it’s a deconstructed sandalwood. It’s also supposed to evoke New York City. So, which is it?

It’s Not That Easy Being Green, Or Is It?
