Indie line Dawn Spencer Hurwitz has launched two new florals for spring, Peony and White Lilac, and a new fragrance for men, Metropolis.
Peony (shown) ~ "Peony is as classic a Spring scent as there is. Plus, I love fresh peonies when they blossom in my garden…their elegant presence speaks of utter beauty and femininity. This new Peony design is more than just the scent of the flower. I wanted to give the wearer a sense of experience. Peony starts at dawn with the dew still on the bud that hasn’t yet opened. The deep green leaves of the plant and a bit of grass are present. Then the peony opens and releases it’s delicate yet definite aroma and we experience the fullness of a fresh blossom. As the perfume dries down it is dusk, and the peony has turned a bit more rose-like as the sun sets and a shadow covers the blossom as night falls." In 1 dram, 10 or 30 ml Eau de Parfum.
White Lilac ~ "The essence of Spring…a lovely and soft, moist yet airy, fruit nuanced lilac with the classic honey-floral drydown." In 10 or 30 ml Eau de Parfum, 10 ml Essence Oil, body products.
Metropolis ~ "Modernism. Minimalism. Urban chic. An abstract masculine design with notes of brushed steel, glass, concrete and motor oil." In 1 dram, 10 or 30 ml Eau de Parfum.
