Nick Knight

Floriental

← All films Comme des Garçons (2015)

Sparked by the imagemaker's longterm passion for photographing flowers, Comme des Garçons asked Nick Knight to produce a film in celebration of their new scent, Floriental. Drawing inspiration from the cistus flower, which has no smell, the fragrance challenges the traditions of perfumery to reimagine a flower that has no scent. With no definite top, middle or base, each ingredient - from sandalwood and incense to pink pepper and plum liqueur - emerges and recedes in creative confusion. The film echoes the scent’s spirit - showing a flower breaking down and disappearing into nothingness on camera.
