Pharrell Williams is having quite a year.

Not only did the haute musician pick up his seventh Grammy Award this year, but he was also nominated for an Oscar and created the sartorial stir of awards season with his mountie-style Vivienne Westwood hat.

Certainly the 40-year-old singer is “Happy” to announce that he’s officially inked his first fragrance deal with Japanese couture brand  Comme des Garçons.

The singer’s first scent will be called “Girl”, which happens to be the name of his latest album.  

“As one of my favorite designers once said, ‘Comme des Garçons is your favorite designers’ favorite designer…the top of the top, the best of the best,’” Williams told WWD of the partnership with fashion designer Rei Kawakubo‘s Comme des Garçons Parfums. “I am so honored to be working with Comme des Garçons and cherish the education that I’ve experienced in this collaboration.”

The unisex perfume is unique because it marks the first time Kawakubo has teamed up with a musician to create a scent.

Those excited to smell Williams’ signature scent won’t have to wait long, thankfully: “Girl” is slated to hit shelves this September.

This is the latest fashion-centric project for the singer, who has collaborated with Moncler, designed baubles and sunglasses shades for Louis Vuitton, is the new director of an eco-collaboration between G-Star Raw and Bionic Yarn and who is launching a line of clothing for Japanese casual wear company UNIQLO called “i am OTHER.”
