Reviews of 2nd Cumming

An oddly appealing petrichor perfume—wet dirt with a wheaty, semi-sweet chord to back it up. It sits somewhere between the scent of a field and an organic grocery store, a bizarre earthy thing that simply shouldn’t have any of the magnetism and appeal that it does. It’s somewhat sweaty upfront, and has minor glimpses of leather and booze, but it’s mainly a hops type note rendered delicately gourmand. Totally innovative with the closest analog being perhaps Humiecki and Graef’s Skarb, it wears beautifully in the water perfume through its perfectly sequenced ethereality. Gorgeous stuff with a brilliantly rendered concept, but it’s barely recognizable as perfume.

I love everything about this - the cheeky name, the list of notes, the fact that Alan Cumming and Christopher Brosius donate the proceeds to charity - except the actual smell, which is merely OK. I don't get most of the listed notes at all. What I do get is a pleasant but unremarkable melange of several of CB I Hate Perfume's signature accords, including Burning Leaves, rubber, and the damp soil that's most prominent in CB Black March. But the whiskey, truffle, peat, and leather are nowhere to be found, and the result is rather unfocused and not terribly interesting, especially compared to several of Brosius' other masterpieces. Better on paper (in every sense) than on the skin.
