Better than Walking in Air, but still altogether too much of a strong dirt note. I can smell a little "cold" in this one, however.

This is the sort of nostalgic and personal scent that I’m a sucker for, although I really did, do, and will forever, hate winter. The winters from my childhood were much colder than they were for Mr. Brosius, this isn’t blowing snow and minus forty wind chills, just cool, peaceful earth. Apart from the earthiness, trying to focus on the story he’s telling with it is too much work for me, but it …Read more

The second I smelled this I was amazed to witness the dead on duplication of melting snow encrusted on wool mittens. It's superb, and almost dangerously evocative. I'm still fairly uncertain if I would purchase this again,simply due to the slightly high pitched edges of the notes. I smell snow, water, gentle undertones of amber, all of which dissipates ridiculously fast. I love CB I …Read more

I like CB perfumes very much, and try to sample as many as I can. I always find them interesting, though many are not what I would call wearable. Winter 1972 is no exception. I got a strong dirt note at first. Not the pretty wet soil note that I loved in To See a Flower. This was musty, stinky dirty dirt. Then the "wet mittens" note. Wet wool is not as bad as wet dog smell, but …Read more

This smells cold like L'Eau d'Hiver but L'Eau d'Hiver is more of a perfume. This is more of a scent memory just like it is supposed to be. Ld'H has a hay note. This has a mild smell of dirt but over that is an ozonic, wet scent that smells, as one reviewer described it, like detergent in the wet winter clothes as they dry out. It is just like coming in after making …Read more

Winter 1972 smells . . . fine. I can't tell the difference between this fragrance and Demeter's "Snow". It just doesn't smell like winter to me -- nothing about it suggests cold. It doesn't have any sharpness like L'eau d'Hiver. And it's sweet. Is it supposed to be the smell of winter indoors?

I guess I'm the odd person out here because I'm not getting that dirt note that others are. I get clean laundry. This totally makes me think of being little and coming in from the cold and all the times my Mother put my wet mittens and snowpants on the radiator to dry. It would smell like steam, water, and the detergent that was in those clothes. I say this is a good way. It does conjur …Read more

(WaterPerfume) This smelled at first like muddy snow (like the trampled, dirty snow of a sidewalk or trail), then the wet woolen mittens emerged, and I swear now I can even smell a brand-new Krazy Karpet! I suspect Mr. Brosius actually used melted snow for the water in this water perfume. This to me is not new-fallen, pre-holiday snow in December but gives a sense of late winter, like early …Read more

This is an unusual scent. The first note I get is dirt. Just plain dirt. But strangely, I like it. As it develops, however, the dirt note becomes less prominent. I can't tell you what the other notes are, because I don't get any particular scent from it, other than to say that it does, indeed, smell like winter. I don't know how Christopher Brosius captured the smell of …Read more

Full disclosure: I Hate Demeter. I have just never gotten the deal with that line of "fragrances." I mean, Playdough? Gin and Tonic? Jelly Bellies? Who wants to smell like that?? So, knowing that Christopher Brosius introduced the Demeter line before leaving to form CB I Hate Perfume was not exactly a selling point for me to try this line. However, I couldn't help but be sucked in …Read more
