Beautifully composed by perfume's enfant terrible, Christopher Brosius of CB I Hate Perfume, it's surprisingly wearable and happily available repackaged but not reformulated as CB I Hate Perfume: 2nd (Alan) Cumming. Even with her comparatively lukewarm homage to Edith Wharton's curious...

" INVISIBLE MONSTER is the scent of a rare Chinese orchid with a brisk lemony perfume balanced against a green jungle riverbank. Some of its notes include: Sumac, Vetivert, Oakmoss and other specially-designed accords that capture the smell of the islands in the Susquehanna River. CB I...

I'm also a longtime admirer of CB I Hate Perfume, so it's strange that I only recently realized that this niche perfumery offers a scent inspired by a scene from the novel. Christopher Brosius created M4, or A Room with a View, for CB I Hate Perfume's Metamorphosis Series and designed it to...

WHERE WE ARE THERE IS NO HERE is carefully worked from ISO E Super, Hedione, Moroccan, Indian and Egyptian Jasmine Absolutes, Amber Absolute, Australian and Mysore Sandalwoods, and a special "invisible musk" accord designed specifically for this perfume. CB I Hate Perfume M5 Where We Are...

CB I Hate Perfume has some excellent news for those of us who mourned the loss of Cumming ...! Okay, on to today's review... By Tom I often get questions from friends about what they should get for their guys, usually with a caveat that the guy in question really doesn't wear cologne so...
