The Scoop

It's next to impossible to not be intrigued by a perfume that asks, “What qualifies anything for the right to exist?”And who else but CdG could promise notes of brown Scotch tape and glue…and make it something utterly sublime and wonderful? This is a linear perfume that takes the wearer on a journey…where you start is not where you end up and in this case, the destination is every bit as good as getting there. The freshly cured leather-like notes safraleine and the rush of manmade aldehydes are the first to greet the nose, a prelude to the carefully constructed organics of hawthorn and lilac. Floral oxides bloom like imaginary flowers from an unknown civilization, while the industrialized notes of glue and packing tape pull at the guilty “I thought I was the only one who loved that smell!” pleasure centers in the brain. Musk and mild, unsweet, vanilla-like styrax make sure this fragrance is human and relatable at its core, pulling together both the artificial and the interpretations of nature at its most fleeting and delicate. It's a perfume that couldn't exist in a bottle that shouldn't exist, a hand blown flacon with the shapelessness of melted light bulb that defies convention. Pushing the limits is CdG's calling card, and we think you'll love the excitement and relatability of this one.

Wow! There's something about this fragrance that pulls me in. It's intriguing and fascinating due to the unusual notes used to make this. It smells of things, glue and packing tape, that one doesn't normally find in a fragrance. I admit that I like the smell of certain glues and other things that may seem odd. This is a highly addictive perfume, and one that doesn't hold back. Lately I've been gravitating toward the avant garde of fragrances, and this will definitely have to be a bottle purchase. I love it!

I could imagine wearing this perfume with a brand new black leather jacket, getting into a brand new car with leather interior. Glue + brand new leather + new car smell = amazing!!!

Sickening, strange, yet seductive and addictive. Industrial glue on the top with a masculine floral twist. Everyone loves to sniff a little glue here and there ......right???

I like my fragrance a bit left of center and am a huge fan of the CdG line. Happy to say this is the first CdG fragrance my husband isn't terrified of. (When I wear Odeur 71 he says I smell like an electrical fire....eek!) The opening blast of "packing tape" settles quickly (at least on my skin) into a soft and creamy powder scent. The tape accord comes and goes but is not, to me, at all overbearing. It's *just* odd enough - it's the porridge that Goldilocks chose.

I wanted this so bad, it sounds so amazing, on my skin it goes from industrial glue to Tide detergent. I couldn't wait to to get it off my skin. toxic, loud, not for me.

Really different and delightful. There's a point at which the packing tape is a bit too much, but it smooths back into the other aspects. Slightly sweet. If you like Byredo's M/Mink, you might like this. Not because they smell alike, but because they both of the same modern vibe.

Who knew brown packing tape could smell so feminine, lovely and intriguing. It pulls you in. Truly a CDG tour de force! The odd notes are at the same time familiar and strangely beautiful.

What a strange fragrance! Did CdG's 3 pick up a job at UPS during the recession? The "weird" notes definitely run the show here, which makes this a CdG fan's dream.
