Invisible Monster [a perfume launch and a short film about Christopher Brosius]

Filmmaker Aaron Peasley has created a very neat short film portrait of New York perfumer Christopher Brosius [CB I Hate Perfume]. I wanted to share this on my blog for several reasons, but the most important being that this film was made by a fragrance fanatic just like you and me, except this guy, he can do stuff with film, and we can't. Well, I can't. It delves into the creative process of Brosius, whom I consider to be one of the most interesting American perfumers working today. His new fragrance Invisible Monster was released this week, and Brosius explains a little bit about the concept behind it.

Now, I've got a porkpie hat full of as-yet-untested CBIHP samples somewhere around here, and I'm not going to bed until I find them.

CLICK HERE to go to W Magazine Fashion Films to watch (it's just over 4 minutes in length). Many thanks to Aaron Peasley for reaching out!

    1. This film is perfect to enjoy with a good cup of coffee, you're right on. Wow, I just felt like Agent Cooper there for a minute. :) Just need a nice piece of pie now.

  2. Ooh! Ooh! Every year we go to a local film festival, and every year I keep wondering, why doesn't anybody do any films about perfume? This is cool!

    Unfortunately, I can't comment on the film itself, because I have to upgrade my Flash player before I can view it. :) But thanks for pointing to it!

    1. Hi Darling! I've missed you around here. Besides the Brian Pera films, I'm not aware of any others at the moment that have anything to do with perfume. I am a huge sucker for documentaries. Oh! Speaking of docs, there's that BBC series that Tarleisio was nice enough to copy for me. It never aired here, unfortunately. Brosius is in that too, as well as my imaginary perfume husband, Thierry Wasser.
