CB I Hate Perfume.

Not only am I obsessed with the unusual names of CB I Hate Perfume’s line of fragrances (i.e. in the Library, Burning Leaves and in the Summer Kitchen), but I love the minimalist packaging and type. It’s a win-win.

Nothing sparks the memory so powerfully as scent. We know this to be true. One small whiff can tell vividly of a time long gone; perhaps of a moment we thought lost forever yet suddenly, in a flash, we live it again. The perfumes in this collection all speak of single shining points of time in my own life. Though we share perfume with those around us when we wear it, still it always tells a very private Secret History. The scents in this collection may tell of mine but when you wear them, they will tell only of yours.

So well said. Now I can’t help but notice the white musk I’m wearing today and realize that I bought it because it reminds me of my freshmen year in high school…

    I just found these at a store last week. The only reason I didn’t buy one was because I couldn’t decide. They are all so wonderful!

    my friend roxy loves these – especially in the library. she bought quite a few of them and said their descriptions are fairly accurate.

    I adore the packaging–especially the little bottles.

    Though I like the packaging, I think the variety is baffling and although I have friends with a dizzying collection of man mist, I prefer to have two signature colognes so that very essence of scent gets associated with me and hopefully in a positive light. Nothing better than getting a morning hug and someone holding on an extra second to say “DAMN you smell good”. lol.
