NPR reports on an eccentric perfumer who considers himself the antithesis of traditional perfumeries. New York’s Christopher Brosius creates scents that are unlike anything else on the market. And you certainly won’t find them at your local Macy’s. A trip to his website, I Hate Perfume, reveals this concoction: “M5 Where We Are There Is No Here – A subtle Jasmine perfume inspired by the last of Cocteau’s film”. If you needed a gift for that film-lover in your life, what could be better than a perfume that captures movie magic. And not to be neglected is the perfect gift for any librarian: “Russian Caravan Tea – Smoked black Indian tea, bergamot and the hint of shelves full of old books”. Russian Caravan Tea would test the veracity of the oft-exclaimed, “I love the smell of old books”.
No need to thank us for the gift-giving ideas, as our whiff on this story comes from Amy Eaton. Her ability to smell out a malodorous article is much appreciated.
