CB I Hate Perfume Fire from Heaven/Smoke Perfume Review

CB I Hate Perfume

So many perfume brands have an incense because it’s how we get back to our roots. Incense is where it all started. In fact, the “perfume” comes from the Latin word “perfumare”, which translates to “to smoke through”.

CB I Hate Perfume At the Beach 1966

I’m on a marine roll this week. Yesterday I reviewed my favorite aquatic, HEELEY Sel Marin. Today I reveal my favorite “beach” scent: CB I Hate Perfume At the Beach 1966.
