As a long-term Comme des Garçons parfums fan, I was very pleased when I was given some Incense Kyoto recently. In a polished black glass bottle with a silver top it’s part of the Series 3 range and is as heady as its name suggests.
A couple of spritzes and a deep woody base is revealed, before you notice the spiced high notes that stay with you all day – darkly modern. It’s ideal for cocktail time and available at Dover Street Market and Liberty. Chef’s Kiss!
