New Year, New Scent
There are two scents that never get tossed. Both are by CB I Hate Perfume. I discovered them while wandering around Portland, Maine, on vacation one year. He may hate perfume, but I absolutely LOVE this perfumer. He is passionate about scent, how it's made and what experiences it evokes. I own two of his fragrances: In the Summer Kitchen ("fresh summer vegetables and herbs on a clear summer evening with a touch of smoked old wooden rafters") and Gathering Apples ("thousands of ripe red Mackintosh apples and a bit of old weathered wood from the bushel baskets"). This year, I'm feeling a little older, a little wiser, so maybe I'll add In the Library to my collection ("a blend of English novel, Russian and Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish"). All are made without alcohol.
So what could say (or smell) "you" in the New Year? Walking in the Air? To See a Flower? You should definitely check these out.
