CB I Hate Perfume was founded by Christopher Brosius in 2004. Before CB I Hate Perfume there was Demeter, which Brosius also started. The line explored scent through how things really smelled - dirt, growing things, snow, crayon, play-doh. He won two Fragrance Foundation awards in 1999 for Snow. In 2003, the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum’s Triennial exhibition included 70 of the Demeter scents, the first time a major art museum gave recognition to scent that was designed, beginning a move to seeing perfume as art.
He left Demeter in 2004 and formed CB I Hate Perfume, located in Brooklyn, New York.. His range includes exploration of many of the natural smells he first played with while at Demeter and expanding on it. To See a Flower is all of the the flower - dirt, green, stem stamen. His Musk Reinvention is one of the skankiest (good thing!) musks made, it growls at you with longing. At the Beach is the scent of summer - Coppertone, ocean, salty skin, it is your childhood in a bottle. 7 Billion Hearts celebrates the 7 billion hearts now beating on this planet with a soft, enveloping vanilla with wisps of smoke.
Combining scents is a treat. Try Burning Leaves and Gathering Apples in the fall. Narcissus and Musk for that Hot Date.
This line of perfumes is made without alcohol.
