The artist of the moment has succeeded again. Pharrell Williams is moving up in the world and he’s no longer just creating music and clothing. Women’s Wear Daily reports that the “Happy” singer is teaming up with Comme des Garçons on a new fragrance. Clearly, he’s so “Happy” about his new wife that he created an album and a fragrance about how great they are together. Um, can we get one of these please?
Since we have “Happy” on replay here at the office, we were thrilled about Pharrell’s newest collaboration. Conveniently named Girl (as if we couldn’t get enough of the album!), the fragrance is not just for women, but for men as well. How Pharrell will create a fragrance that smells great on both men and women is beyond us, but we’re ready for it anyway. (Think about the amazing scents of other unisex fragrances like Creed’s Virgin Island Water and Kiehl’s Forest Rain–talk about yum.) And while specific scent details appear to be pretty secretive, rest assured that the fragrance is set to hit shelves this September, so you can do all the testing you want then.
It wasn’t a surprise to hear that Pharrell had an distinct idea of what his scent should smell like; this man knows his stuff. He has collaborated with many designers in the past including, Moncler, Louis Vuitton, and G-Star Raw. Pharrell told WWD, “I am so honored to be working with Commes des Garçons and will cherish the education that I’ve experienced in this collaboration.”
Well, we are too, and we can’t wait to see and try it!
