An exploration of destruction, construction and creation, Comme des Garçons’ Concrete eau de toilette was created in celebration of the material’s extensive presence in dense cities. Just like The City That Never Sleeps, it has a dirty edge, but in essence, it’s soft and sensual thanks to a concoction of spices such as cumin, cardamom, clove and pepper, alongside sandalwood, rose oxyde and jasmine sambac.
