Ok, I don't hate perfume, quite the opposite actually (for example here). A friend recently turned me on to this perfume shop CB I Hate Perfume in Brooklyn. Each name and bottle is cuter than the next...the descriptions conjure up memories of walking through the countryside, fresh cut grass or autumn leaves. With 35 different scents ranging in price from $50-75 you are sure to find one that is right for you. All perfumes are made in small batches and bottled by hand.
Cradle of Light: Cradle of Light is a glorious blend of pure white flower absolutes: Moroccan, Indian, Egyptian and Tunisian Jasmine Grandiflorum, Indian Night Blooming Jasmine, Jonquil, Narcissus, Tuberose and White Lotus. The bouquet is set against a green background of Sumac, Tomato and Violet Leaves with a hint of Galbanum and grounded in a base of Sandalwoods and CBMUSK.
The scent begins with a fresh green presence; gradually the flowers emerge becoming warmer and richer. Cradle of Light is a supremely elegant perfume with a serene and euphoric effect. Wearing it can be slightly hypnotic...
M3 November: Pumpkin Pie, Fallen Apples, Bonfire, Wood Smoke, Dried Grass, Fallen Leaves, Wet Branches, Damp Moss, Chanterelle Mushrooms and a hint of Pine Forest
Greenbriar 1968: This scent is a memory of my Grandfather, the sawmill that he owned and the stone house where he lived.
It is blended with Sawdust, Fresh Cut Hay, Worn Leather Work Gloves, Pipe Tobacco and a healthy amount of Dirt. There is also a faint whiff of cotton overalls covered in Axel Grease.
Burning Leaves: The smoke of burning maple leaves - pure & simple
