'scent is life'

Fig Leaf/RevelationI am a DandelionOcean/Eternal ReturnLavender TeaMemory Of KindnessTea/RoseIn The Summer Kitchen

my very creative and favorite neighbor told me about this riveting company while we were on a  brisk walk with her sweet sweet baby boy this morning.
cb I hate perfume is owned by perfumer christopher brosius of williamsburg, brooklyn. I love the idea of having a signature scent and feel like I have been searching for one forever....could it be just under my nose? perhaps I am a 'lavender tea'....or maybe more 'memory of kindness'?  unlike most other perfumes on the market, this product is 'water perfume' or water based.  chris says that alcohol dries the skin out and evaporates quickly where as water and oil are just what the skin needs to hold a fragrance....ahhhhh.
be sure to visit the cb I hate perfume website here......and if you are lucky enough to be in brooklyn, check out his gallery here.  oh, and good news for my charleston readers, worthwhile on king street is listed as carrying his line!
here is a snippet from his site:
When I was a child, I wanted to be an artist or perhaps a scientist. Instead I am a perfumer – this is perhaps a bit of both. I’ve been described as one of the most innovative perfumers of the 21st Century. I’ve won awards, my work is in museums and countless people in all civilized parts of the globe enjoy the unique scents I create. Much to my surprise, at least in a small way I have changed how people think of perfume: what it is & how it’s used.


  1. his perfume is as amazing as his story.
    i bought my first samples from him probably 2 years ago, and of the ones i tried, eternal return was my favorite, i went on to buy the parfum, and i believe its a beet base of some variety, anyway, every time i wear it, someone comments.

  2. wow, Ann, I love you have tried this and love it! I just read about his newest scent, 'room with a view'... which is said to capture the scent of the hills above Florence - the vineyards, the wild grass, the finocchio, the hot dusty Florentine earth. And of course a torrent of Violets...
    it is on my wish list!!!
