I read a review that said this smells like the inside of the antique ships in Mystic. It does, first on, have that old clipper ship smell, but the vanilla bit of this fragrance smells more like dirty skin on me, a very 'body' type of vanilla that I find extremely off-putting. It dries down finally to a more woody vanilla that is quite nice, but the middle section I dislike. Overall, not …Read more

I started with a large sample vial of this. It was OK, not thrilling, not terrible. Then a friend gave me a decant. I ended up with the decant at work, my only fragrance, and after a long, terrible, full of horrible stinks, frustrating shift, in tears in my car, I sprayed myself with this.

Sigh. Breath. Another breath. CALM. Beauty. Greenness, fresh. Cool. Clean. Dry, but …

I too am disappointed by the lousy reviews on this one, as I personally love this perfume. It's a smoky incense scent - perfect for the fall/winter months. What I like about it is it is not "too perfumey" or overpowering as some incense perfumes can be. I have the absolute, which lasts most of the day. I do find CB's water perfumes do not have much staying power - the …Read more

I know Chris's perfumes are meant to evoke memories, and boy, do they! This one certainly reminds me of MARCH, just as its name suggests. It brings me back to that first post winter day when one sets out for a walk in the woods, and the snow is almost entirely melted. This smells like damp spring earth. It holds a promise -- that only spring holds -- and the scent does transition into a …Read more

When I opened the sample bottle and sniffed, I said aloud, "Oh my God, it really does smell exactly like dirt!" My boyfriend sniffed and said, "Don't ever wear that. That is atrocious." I said, "Oh, those are just the top notes. I want to see what the dry down is."
As it dried down, the sweeter notes came through, but I had the same experience as the …

I love At The Beach 1966, it makes me happy. The scent brings back fond memories of going to the beach as a little girl with my family. I definitely get old school Coppertone as well as salt water (I swear I can taste the salt when I first put this on) and sand mixed with the scent of warm skin. It is glorious.

I have tried both the absolute and the water formulas, and in my opinion …
