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.
