The Scoop

After several collaborative projects, Comme des Garçons launches a purely Comme des Garçons scent – “A positive overdose of woods, woody notes and synthetic wood constructions (Wood gone mad).” And it has.

Wood, of course, has been part of the Comme des Garçons Parfums DNA from the outset, and here perfumer Antoine Lie has pulled out all the stops: this is all wood, just like it says on the bottle, the notes melding through the common smokiness of incense, guaiac, sandalwood, vetiver and oud with a hint of musty patchouli, dried out by cypress and cedar, wrapped in the powdery, velvety muskiness of Cashmeran.

This sensuous ode to woodiness, translated into an eerie gorgeous visual rhapsody by the Quay Brothers, may just be the most quintessentially CdG fragrance since its first, groundbreaking offering by Mark Buxton in 1994, Comme des Garçons Eau de Parfum. It is wood made liquid and smoke and take our word, like the man “who loved woods more than any words could say” in the video, you'll want to drown in it. Wonder indeed.

Here's what other people are saying about Wonderwood...
After trying 50ish sample from every perfumer imaginable, this is the first bottle I have ever bought. It is obviously a woody scent, slightly medicinal but not intoxicatingly so. It reminds me a fresh wet wood, with that slightly metallic scent that comes when a healthy tree is cut into. But at the same time it is dry and soft. A very sexual scent in my opinion.

When first applied, this smelled like turquoise dandruff shampoo and I was really disappointed. After about 20 minutes, the wood showed up for me, but it kept switching back and forth between wood and dandruff shampoo. When it smells like wood it is really lovely, but...

Great scent! Dry, woody fragrance with a sweet twinge after dry down. If you like wood fragrances, get this

I really do love this scent! It's woody with a hint of smooth sweetness that really anyone could wear, man or woman! One of my new faves.

Such a clean smell, yet can be so warming. A lot more versatile then I first thought. Wood - Simple idea, great fragrance

This smells like a polished wood cabinet fell on you...and is just as subtle. It's also too sharp and I get a metallic note too. If you want woody, I prefer Diptyque's Tam Dao.

I purchased this fragrance in bulk and flooded my neighborhood in it. A couple of people drowned but thanks to me West Hollywood smells exactly like the great redwood forest. Just doing my part to beautify the city of Los Angeles.

The first half hour was okay, but then it became very similar to CDG Man 2.

Love it! After CdG 2 Man, this is my favorite fragrance. It's wood on steroids! At first, I was worried that I was going to smell like a hamster's cage all day, but WW dries down to a woody, piney, cedary fragrance with, what my nose detects as, floral notes.

I have been looking for a sandalwood smell that really smells like sandal-WOOD (the mysore kind), because it's a favourite and I feel so at home with that smell. This has a nice touch of pepper and other stuff that just enhances it and makes it unique but on me the sandalwood dominates and that's just what I want. I first tried it on paper and it appeared a bit too masculine, but on my skin it is not masculine at all, it's just mine. Wonderful.

Yikes, smells like essential rosewood oil right out of the bottle. Maybe its my male chemistry but this is headache inducing on me.

This smells divine on me. I keep catching scent trails and falling in love all over again. I've smelled a few CdG scents in men's stores and was "meh" on them. I'm starting to see what all the fuss is about with this line, and I'll probably spring for the full bottle.

Sandal predominates this gentle, wonderful scent. A bit on the plain side, won't knock you socks off, but pleasing and comfortable.

Surprisingly sweet, though with a nice radiance to it. I just pulled out a carved sandalwood compact a friend brought me from India years ago, and they smell identical to me. With genuine sandalwood hard to come by these days, CdG/Lie may have created an ideal replacement scent.

I really like it, but it was much more gentle and easy to come to terms with than I expected. I was expecting to get hit over the head with a blast of aromatic woods. But not the case. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't more wild, but it is lovely elegant, and wonderfully gender neutral nonetheless.

While I'd have to disagree with the previous reviewer here, this is a pretty boring scent. And the comparison to Black Afgano is beyond me. . not even close. This is a very wearable scent, for everyday occasions, but not something I'd want to wear to something special (although it could work there too. . )

Has got to be one of the worst fragrances I've ever tried. Very strong and offensive.

A gorgeous woods, it is nearly a dupe of Satellite's Padparaschka, only better. For me and my skin this one is a long lasting winner, and definitely full bottle worthy. Just because I love it does not mean you will, so sample first.
