Japanese fashion company Comme des Garçons has announced that they will be releasing an exclusive fragrance with Pharrell Williams called G I R L. The scent will be for both men and women.

"This is the first time we have created a fragrance for a musician and I can think of no greater talent and no greater gentleman to have done this with," states Adrian Joffe, CEO of Comme des Garcons Parfum SA. "Pharrell knew exactly what he wanted the perfume to smell like right from the beginning. It has been an honor to work with such a creative artist with a great vision which for Comme des Garcons is the most important thing"

"As one of my favorite designers once said, ‘Comme des Garcons is your favorite designers' favorite designer... the top of the top, the best of the best,'" Pharrell remarks. "I am so honored to be working with Comme des Garcons and cherish the education that I've experienced in this collaboration."

Williams, who recently picked up his 7th Grammy Award and was nominated for an Academy Award for his #1 hit single "Happy" from the animated film Despicable Me 2, has been a fixture in the luxury fashion world for many years though this will be his first fragrance. His album G I R L was released Monday, March 3.
