We’ve come to expect amorphous, contemporary and genderless fragrances from the maverick perfumers at Comme Des Garçons. Black pepper, tonka bean, leather, cedar wood and akigalawood – fractionated from patchouli – blend to create this peppery and mysterious spice concoction. Thoroughly sophisticated, we love the thought of wearing this for glamorous parties and the gunmetal, gleaming bottle will transform any dressing table into a modern, directional olfactory shrine.

Launched with an installation by legendary cool-girl and designer Faye Toogood, each bottle is wrapped in paper adorned with her globular Black Pepper-inspired designs. It is a powerful and subversive fragrance, or as Comme des Garçons describe it “the luxurious scent of an endless abyss”.

Comme Des Garçons Black Pepper Eau de Parfum, 100ml, £83, is available from Selfridges
