About CB Premium Accords
For quite a while now, I've been getting a lot of requests for certain Individual Accords either in Water Perfume or Travel/Trial size, which I completely understand. Unfortunately since all the Individual Accords are made to order, we cannot make tiny 2 ML vials of them. And while we can and do make custom individual accord water perfumes for certain clients, the cost is QUITE expensive. Few realize that making a water perfume is extremely complicated and generally requires a good deal of time and experimenting. Of course once that process is complete, we can make larger batches of the water perfumes, which is exactly what we do for all CB Ready To Wear Perfumes. But to do this for one single scent, it takes time and materials and usually winds up costing at least $125 per bottle - often more. This is fine for those who are willing and able but in general, that cost doesn't really fit with my philosophy of "the best possible perfume at the best possible price".
So I've been thinking about what can be done about this for some time and have finally come up with a solution - CB Premium Accords. I've sorted out the 10 most popular Individual Accords, we've done all the necessary developmental work to turn them into Water Perfumes and are now offering all of them in Premium Perfume Absolute, Water Perfume and 2 ML Travel/Trial Premium Absolutes. Now people will be able to spray many of their favorite Individual Accords and can sample a good selection from the CB Accord Archive.
Premium vs Individual
There is one significant difference between the Premium Accord Absolutes and the Individual Accord Absolutes. All Premium Accords are blended at a double concentration. This means they are much richer and more effusive than the Basic Individual Accords. These are perfect for those who absolutely LOVE certain scents. For those who prefer the lighter concentration however, we will continue to offer these scents in their original Individual Accord format. Those can still be found on the appropriate Accord Series Page.
How to Use Premium Accords
Premium Accords are worn exactly the same way as other CB Ready to Wear Perfumes. The Premium Absolutes can be dabbed lightly on pulse points. Premium Accord Water Perfumes can be sprayed on the skin or on clothing.
And we encourage you to experiment and have fun with these scents. Wear them singly or in any combination you like. You can even wear them with another perfume if you choose. The choice is ALWAYS yours.
Premium Accord Scents
Smoky Tobacco, Burnt Wood, Soaked Earth, North Atlantic, Crushed Fig Leaf, Beautiful Launderette, Old Leather, Grass, Wildflower Honey and White Ginger Flower are the first ten scents chosen for the CB Premium Accord Collection.
Others will be added in time - Chocolate Box and Pumpkin Pie will definitely be coming later in the year. And now and then, I may choose to add a few that might be appropriate to the season. I'll continue to keep an eye on the accords and to listen to your comments & requests to determine which scents will be added next to the Premium Accord Collection. I have so many in my archive that there are always several that I've forgotten about...
