Dawn Spencer Hurwitz has launched Scent of Hope, a new iris soliflore fragrance inspired by the fabled Jacques Fath Iris Gris.
What started out as a bespoke reproduction of the much beloved, almost impossible to get, Iris Gris de Fath, has become our new release, the Scent of Hope.
An overdosing of peach gives the impression of incredible softness and approachability at first sniff that gives way to a glorious, true orris heart. Orris can be rather cold, aloof, and quite melancholy. But Scent of Hope is not melancholy or aloof. It is elegant, to be sure, and so, so beautiful but not in a way that you must admire her from an ivory tower. She comes down to be with you, and hold you close; lovingly. A rich yet delicate, woody to animalic drydown is revealed as Scent of Hope completes. It will leave you swooning…it is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Scent of Hope is available in Extrait, in 5 ($88) or 15 ($227) ml. 30% of sales will be donated to Sense of Security, an organization dedicated to helping those coping with breast cancer afford their treatment and living expenses.
