The Scoop

We could not descibe the fragrance any better than Chalayan himself.

"We all associate smell with a sense of place, time and experience. As I was growing up, I moved around and readapted to new scenarios and smell marked a big part of these shifts in environment.

Airborne, also the title of the Hussein Chalayan Autumn Winter 2007 collection, developed with Comme des Garçons Parfums, is an attempt to capture a sense of my journeys from Cyprus to London. We started the process by dissecting all the possible smells from the Northern Cypriot topography, from flowers, weeds, vegetables to air, the sea, earth and wood and where possible their burnt and fresh variations.

After selecting different elements such as neroli, lemon and lentiscus from Cyprus, I proposed an imaginary scenario as to how these ingredients could incur change during and after an air journey from Mediterranean Cyprus to a London urban setting.

These ingredients in an urban environment can become more electric or synthetic but captivating, connecting you to a familiarity of the past or a possible unknown world of the future.

Airborne can culminate in a synesthetic omnipresent experience blurring the lines between movement, place and time. It could also become a catalyst for new associations that the user will create through their own experiences."

Well...to my surprise,this didnt smell at all like the notes listed.I would liken it to an upscale linen spray. If you are expecting an exotic,incense,green aroma,its not the right product for you.

It is austere, light, cool, green with a touch of woods. Its a dewy mist that fills the early morning air over the green landscape. I like a lot, but it may be too subtle for some. It is green, but much lighter than CDG Hinoki. Still it's a winner.

I got a bottle of this because I almost always find CDG scents very good. I was not disappointed. This is crispl green incense fragrance. Unlike anything else, it's refreshing but very natural smelling. The effect is like the early morning air, cool, crisp with light foggy mist in the air settling over the greens. I don't think this will have legions of loyal followers because it is kind of lightly done and austere - but it is just right for me.

I am not sure what I was expecting, but I purchased this without ever testing it. I never do that. I am so glad I did. The only word to describe it is "Beautiful!" I can't stop smelling my wrist.
