As a taxi driver, Christopher Brosius came to hate the pungent perfumes of his passengers, their smell – or the smell of their Giorgio – lingering in his cab for days, the New York Times reports. His ambition was to create scents that embodied his customers’ individual memories.

Last year, Mr. Brosius opened a boutique in Williamsburg. where he uses an oil base instead of the alcohol platform the perfume industry gernerally uses. His perfumes include: Fresh Basil, Bitter Basil, Bruschetta, Skunk, Coppertone 1967, Pipe Tobacco, Clean Sheets, Doll Head, Roast Beef and You Know This (which smells of Play-Doh!)
