Coffee in a Teak Temple

Continuing my exploration of the Comme des Garcons’ Incense line. Today I’m wearing Kyoto. Longevity and sillage is much better than Zagorsk. The subtle coffee note definitely makes it more interesting and not as straight forward incensy.

I would like to add a note on the similarities between Kyoto and Le Labo Gaiac 10. Kyoto fans are accusing Le Labo for copying Kyoto (6 years apart), and I think they were more “inspired” than directly copying them. (Well, I don’t work for Le Labo, I honestly don’t know) But if you say they did, I would not argue. However, I find Gaiac 10 more peaceful and “pure” than Kyoto and I get more enjoyment wearing Gaiac 10, for a rare “less is more” experience.
