We’ve known since last fall that Pharrell would be releasing a fragrance. In March it was announced that he would be collaborating with Comme Des Garcons on the scent and that it would be called “G I R L,” just like his most recent album. We also found out that despite its name, the scent would be unisex. That preliminary info held us over for a few weeks, but we wanted more. We always want MOAR. Good news: Today Pharrell revealed the forthcoming bottle and what the fragrance would actually smell like to WWD.
The scent, packaged more like a sculpture than your average perfume bottle, is definitely something you’ll want to put on display. It features a colorful cartoon by Kaws, a friend of Pharrell’s and the artist who designed the 2013 VMA Moonman, NBD. The 100-ml. bottle is priced at $135 and a 10-ml. travel size version costs $30.
While reading about a scent doesn’t exactly reveal, y’know, what it smells like, it can help sculpt what to expect. For this unisex fragrance, you’ll be sniffing on “top notes of neroli, lavender and white pepper; middle ones of iris, styrax and violet, and base ones of vetiver, patchouli, cedarwood and sandalwood,” according to WWD. Those things might sound a little out there on
paper a screen but–hey–we trust Pharrell.
Skateboard P also dished on his method of serial collaborating (see: Adidas, Moncler, Kartell, etc.). “I work with all the masters because it allows me a crash course into not only who they are as people, but into their art form, and their craft. So that’s pretty cool,” he told WWD. Could Pharrell become a life coach next? Just saying, I think we could all benefit from learning his ways of productivity.
