The forbidden fruit
Disturbing and beguiling rhymes not for nothing. Rouge does exactly what you can expect from a Comme des Garcons fragrance. First full broadside! Unexpected and aggressive, like a slap in the face with severe sharpness. The slap leaves a red imprint, a mark on the skin. Chilled with a slice of beetroot for relief, but the mark remains. The sweet pain throbs on, taking us back to the place where we received the slap, an earthy basement all wrapped in latex. Rouge is the red mark of the forbidden fruit, burning, rusting, bleeding. The scarlet letter, the sweet pain, mysterious and secretive.
Bull's eye for Comme des Garcons!

Fragrance opportunist
The very first impression was pepper. Then, frankincense, and plenty of it. A few seconds later an unfortunately longer lasting mélange of soap (!) and incense. I thought: ugh how terrible!
It takes a while for the soapy aspect to disappear. - What will prevail then is the incense. Instead of earth I perceive something stubbornly prickly (metallic?). In not one moment I think of beetroot (which, by the way, I like very much in taste).
The bottom line is a bitter-sweetish incense scent, which in the course of days (I couldn't get hold of the scent at first) gave the following impression:
ROUGE places itself olfactorically exactly between the siblings "Comme des Garcons 2 Man" and "Copper". The first one is an incense stroke of genius with warmth, the second has something else innovative. Rouge, on the other hand, seems to entrench himself between the two, even taking a step back, not wanting to do anything wrong and secretly helping himself to both. That annoys me a little bit, because I know from CdG Innovation and therefore expect it of course.

It will certainly take a while before I have fully understood it for myself. Until then, I will classify him as a shadow plant.

How about a beetroot frankincense instead of fruitchouli?
The name and the flacon fit: A dark red pulsation welcomes the nose with the now familiar CDG spice-incense surround and a metallic finish. No special development, but very steady and grounded. As a substitute for fruit notes, the beetroot is original and fragrant, yet easy to wear. But not a permanent candidate for me, as it would spoil my beloved beetroot in the long run.
