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.

The film echoes the scent’s spirit – showing a flower breaking down and disappearing into nothingness on camera. (ShowStudio)
