CB I Hate Perfume has launched two new fragrances, M #3 November & Walking in the Air, and has released this year's holiday limited edition of the Gingerbread fragrance:
M #3 November ~ "For decades November depressed me. As the year died away, I too longed for warm green grass, long summer evenings spent with friends outdoors and the sight of fireflies twinkling in the woods....But i have learned to embrace November and find comfort in the beauty of decay." With notes of pumpkin pie, fallen apples, bonfire, wood smoke, dried grass, fallen leaves, wet branches, damp moss, chanterelle mushrooms and pine forest; available in 2 ml and 15 ml Perfume Absolute or 100 ml Water Perfume.
Walking in the Air ~ "One day, in November 2007 when it was unseasonably warm, I found myself longing for the smell of Snow. Not on me but in the air around me in my studio. I wanted to imagine myself working quietly in the middle of a snow covered pine forest - rather like the ending of the first act of Balanchine's Nutcracker...So I made up a bottle of Snow-scented Home Spray." The notes: new fallen snow. Available in 150 ml Home Spray, 2 ml and 15 ml Perfume Absolute.
Gingerbread ~ The 2008 version uses the same formula as last year. "This warm spicy blend has long been one of my favorite winter scents– so much in fact that I’ve begun to do a special limited edition of“Gingerbread” for the holidays. CB “Gingerbread” isn’t a literal interpretation of exactly how baking gingerbread smells – instead I’ve blended all the flavors and spices that go into this wonderful dessert. I’ve combined Chinese Ginger Root, Indian Nutmeg, Cinnamon Bark from Sri Lanka with a subtle warm smoky vanilla-like base (but not too sweet) made with Tahitian Vanilla Absolute." Available through December only, in 2 ml or 15 ml Perfume Absolute.
