Artek and Comme des Garçons have joined forces for an exciting new fragrance called “Standard,” relating to Artek’s aesthetic for furniture and design. The name derives from Artek’s standard thinking, based on Alvar Aalto’s original idea of systems and standards in furniture design. The unisex fragrance was created in line with Artek Studio’s brief on combining synthetic and natural elements. The final scent was developed by Christian Astuguevieille, perfume creator at Comme des Garçons. The result is a blend of Finnish Labrador Tea, Twinflower Linnea Borealis, metal and rust in the base notes and fennel, ginger, lemon, musk, saffron and cedarwood in the top notes. “Standard” will be launched in London at Dover Street Market on October 15. The fragrance will be distributed through Artek’s and Comme des Garcons’ own stores as well as Comme des Garçons’ resellers. [via CouteQueCoute]
