We
have yet another addition to celeberty frerances. Eventough everyone expected
Kanye west to surprise the world with an ‘eau de parfum’ carring his name, the
honor this time goes to seven time grammy winner, Pharrell Williams. For his
very first fregrance, which officially carrys the name  _G I R L_ by
Pharrell Williams, the “Happy” singer teamed up with his friends at
Comme des Garçons to assamble a  unisex scent for the modern
metropolitan. 

“There should be no lines — I learned that from Comme
des Garçons,” explains Williams when asked to describe the process of making
his new fragrance. He continues to explain the reason behind choosing _G I R L
_ as the name for his debut fregrance. ” We just found another way to
say unisex,”  as the 41-year-old explains during an interview
with WWD.
 He continues to explain that when he was young, he used Ralph
Laurent’s Polo for which he says it was “really cool” at that time.
Later he used Dior’s Fahrenheit because it was so different from other
fragrance at that time. Afterwards the singer did not wear any perfume for 15
years. It was when meeting Sarah Andelman, founder and creative director
of Parisian Colette made him think differently about fragrances. When  he smelled the perfume she was wearing and asked her what
that scent was, and she answered it was Wonderwood by CDG. From that moment on,
Pharrell has been, as he says himself, in love with Comme des Garcons!
No wonder an important requirement for
his own Comme fragrance — other than that it had to be unisex — was that it
would have to have a woody smell. “I was enamored by [Comme’s] ability to
deliver wood to the masses in the way that they have,” he expresses. 
Besides base note cedarwood, the
fragrance features top notes of neroli, lavender and white pepper; middle ones
of iris, styrax and violet, and completing base notes vetiver, patchouli and
sandalwood.

R L for boys & girls is available for Dutch residents starting from the 1st
