The other day I stopped by Odin on Lafayette Street in NYC. I love going to this shop. They have a fantastic collection of clothes, shoes and accessories—most pieces are black, gray or navy— and I would pretty much wear anything that I've seen in there. What I keep forgetting is that Odin has an incredibly complete collection of Comme des Garcons fragrances. Amazing. The one that kept us sniffing our wrists all day was 888 Eau de Parfum. The concept behind this fragrance is to translate the smell of gold into perfume. Yes, GOLD! The result: a wonderful scent that is bright, warm, cold, elusive and long lasting all at once. Spectacular!
888 has notes of pepperwood, saffron, curcuma (a type of ginger), coriander, geraniaum and amber.
On my next visit to Odin, I will be adding 888 to my fragdrobe. I'll also pick up those Yohji Yamamoto sneakers that seemed to be calling my name.
