I was so excited because I was going to a party today, I got all dolled up, painted my nails with Urban Decay's Exhaust. And then I started feeling sick and had to cancel. I'm not one to miss parties and was bummed out! I had planned on wearing Serge Lutens A La Nuit but that felt to happy and I wanted something moody with a bit of attitude.
I figured I should test Comme des Garçons Series 2: Sequoia. The notes in this fragrance are: California redwood, red rum, opopanax, kara-karounde from Guinea, Chinese agarwood, mahogany.
This reminds me of an ornate wooden jewelry box I bought once. It was carved on the top with flowers and vines. It didn't have a finish to it so it had this dry, unfinished wood fragrance to it and whenever I'd place anything inside the box, it took on that scent. There is a tiny hint of what seems like red hots cinnamon candies in here. This has attitude all right, but it isn't a moody one!
I think it might be too much when worn as a daytime fragrance in spring or summer months, but this is an incredibly sexy evening fragrance year round and a beautiful daytime fragrance in autumn in winter.
It retails for $58/75 ml and can be purchased at Luckyscent.
