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 adore this perfume. I should qualify that by saying I'm one of those people who, when someone tells me they have a perfume that smells just like soil, runs to snap it up. (That happens very rarely, except for this perfume.) Nothing to me smells more like spring than this perfume. My grandparents had a farm, and would start their tomato plants in the greenhouse in February. Nothing …Read more

I Hate Perfume scents are far from typical perfumes. Christopher Brosius designs his fragrances to evoke memory. I own about 1/2 dozen of them and look forward to getting more.


M (Metamorphosis) #2 Black March is described as having "notes of rain drops, leaf buds, wet twigs, tree sap, bark, mossy earth and a hint of spring".


On me it opens very green …

I have mixed feelings about this. The opening notes are the most beautiful experience. I love the smell of earth, wet clean mud and garden bulbs, earthy roots, a whiff of orris, carrot, green grass. The opening notes are so pretty and as the scent develops it's almost like planting lilies and watching them bloom.

The first time I sniffed it I brought up the order screen to …

This stuff is astounding. I've seen many scents described as "springtime in a bottle," but none like this. The watery top notes are very brief, as if the rain has soaked into the earth, and then it turns very green, as if everything is now sprouting.

What a BEAUTY!!!
The opening smells just like a wet forest in cooler weather when spring is about to start. You can smell it coming! Then it turns into something different on me. It gets warmer and now it is the forest in summer after a thunderstorm (more like demeter thundersturm which I also love but this smells more like the real thing to me). The air cooled off a little and it is getting …

While I detect the notes/ effects everyone's talking about: fresh dirt, sap, etc. it just strikes me as too chemical smelling, and also that it doesn't meld together; as in i can easily detect the elements separate; which i guess is exactly the point of the man behind the CB's; to me it's still more like a room fragrance, or a room frag. mimicing the outdoors, and less …Read more

I just received my 2ml absolute of this. Wet, it definitely smells of a garden. Dirt, green, and very pale florals. It's not strong at all. Upon drying, it turns into pale florals with a slight underlying scent of wet green, and maybe the barest hint of dirt, but only if you're looking for it. Being a person who doesn't like florals, I have to say that this is one of the most …Read more

This is the best fragrance I've ever smelled. Its very earthy. To me, smells like a dark mossy forest in the middle of fall. Very magical.
However, both versions (water and absolute) have nearly no staying power on me.
