DSH Perfumes

Portlandia Sample

  • This is a 2 ml spray sample. Find the full bottle here.  

    An urbane & quirky fragrance of fresh flowers, city streets, nearby conifer forests, and the breeze of northwest marine air. Created by iconic indie perfumer, Dawn Spencer Horowitz, Portlandia came to life when DSH took a sunny summer walk through Portland’s open flower market. With each step, a myriad of scents passed under her nose. Fresh roses, freesia and tulips opened their petals and waft their aromas now gliding over the nearby city streets and through the conifer forests. The northwest marine air calms the soul as all of the aromas come together to give a sense of place and add new life to the fresh floral bouquets.



    Notes include bergamot, grapefruit, leafy green accord, sea air accord, fresh rose, freesia, tulip, jasmine, spruce & pine needles, frankincense, sandalwood, oak moss, cedarwood, and musk.
