Part of Comme Des Garçons’ now discontinued Leaves series, Calamus is one of Bernard Duchaufour’s earlier less fussed, more smooth and linear creations – an extremely green, fresh and aerated scent that achieves its peculiarly verdant lightness with an ingeniously conceived blend of young bamboo leaf, grass oils, celery seeds and angelica root. The initial impression is like tumbling into a bed of welcoming grasses and sap : crushing the new green leaves of May between your fingers; a leaf-dappled smell, calming and nerve -purifying, that gradually becomes a soft and white pillow-like lactic powder: downy and dreamy like a sleep under the leaves, in the sun.
