I'm not a big fan of perfume - it would be fair to say I hate it. It makes me sneeze. My eyes water - I tend to look like someone hit me in the face. It's bad. And not all together attractive.
All that being said, I think I may have to order some of this:
Perfume that smells like my favorite place on earth - uh, what?
Read the blurb from Shelf Awareness about "In the Library" - The most popular scent in perfumer Christopher Brosius's "I Hate Perfume" collection is "In the Library," which smells like old, dusty books. "My work is really about things that really do smell wonderful, but don't have a lot of the properties that commercial perfumes do," he said. NPR's All Things Considered noted that Brosius "blends and bottles all of his scents by hand in his workshops. The process may be labor-intensive, but it allows him to create singular scents that can't be mass-produced."
I need a bottle of this - stat. Not sure what it says about me that I want to smell like old books; now if Brosius made a perfume that smelled like a freshly sharpened Mirado Classic #2 pencil . . . swoon.
