Comme des Garcons Odeur 53

Disrupt (verb): to radically change an industry's business stategy, as by introducing a product or service that creates a new market.

Is the prettiest hair color always the most natural? What if his was the same as hers? Why must "model" be synonymous with "skinny"? By asking provocative questions and answering them with aplomb, 11 irrepressible talents are changing the way we experience beauty.

The creative director of Comme des Garcons Parfum knew 25 years ago how we'd want to smell today. - Google Astuguevieille and his fragrance career isn't even on the first page. That's because in addition to guiding creative direction of the fragrances at Comme des Garçons for the past 25 years, he's also a sculptor, a furniture maker, and a jewelry designer. GENDER BENDER: Astuguevieille's earliest scents - CDG and CDG2 - were created neither for men nor for women. "Our objective was individuality," says Astuguevieille, who championed gender fluidity in perfumery long before the expression came into the cultural conversation. FAKING IT: While other fragrance houses tout the purity of their scents, Astuguevieille makes no such claim. In his own estimation, his finest achievement was Odeur 53, a blend of nail polish, metal, and air-dried laundry, which relies on "a massive use of synthetics," he says, almost giddy. "We created it with ingredients not usually cared for in perfumery."

One of Astuguevieille's most avant-garde scents: Odeur 71 COMME DES GARCONS, which features notes of pencil shavings and hot lightbulbs.
