Intoxicating smoky vanilla
About 2 years ago I read an interview with Christopher Brosius at Cafleurebon. About 7 Billion Hearts he said: "That perfume was actually inspired by a whiff I had several years ago of an original bottle of Shalimar which dated back to the early 20’s. It was gorgeous and I thought well this is how a vanilla perfume should smell".

First of all I love Shalimar and I love the smokiness of the older versions. So from that day I was dying to try 7BH and the moment I tried it I wasn't disappointed. Imho he succeeded big time in capturing the intoxicating first whiff I get from the vintage versions (although I never smelled the very first version).

The opening is somewhat musty (even faintly like mushrooms) and medicinal (I can see that this easily could be perceived as synthetic), but 7BH settles down into a warm, dark, sweet (but not too sweet), intoxicating, smoky and somewhat lineair vanilla. However, it is somewhat quirky and I can definitely understand why this would be a love/ hate perfume. I wouldn't recommend blind buying.

I for one think CB is a genius making these minimalistic and high quality scents as they actually stir my emotions. I adore 7 Billion Hearts and I would love to own a bottle of the water perfume. I think it's insanely expensive though, but I can see myself buying a bottle in the future. Or even better: receive it as a gift....

7 Billion opens with the strong medicinal smell of amber that dissapates after a few minutes. The composition is very resinous along with tonka bean and vanilla. There is a smokey, leathery vibe to this as well. I adore this scent somehow, even though it isn't typical of what I generally go for. Like most of the CB Perfumes I've tried, this one sits close and doesn't project in a big way. This scent is at it's best on a warm day when the resins and vanilla blossom on the skin.
