Sam Rader created L.A.-based Dasein after a trip to Big Sur where she was inspired to make scents that showcase nature's olfactory complexity. Her first scent, Winter, was a runaway hit that Los Angeles stores couldn't keep on the shelves. Winter Nights is a deeper, darker meditation on the same theme, and we're not surprised that it's already a cult hit, too. We can't even imagine the season without it. Oh! Did we mention that this scent is a collaboration between Sam and Imaginary Authors perfumer Josh Meyer? True story. As if it weren't irresistible enough already. Notes include coastal forest, driftwood bonfire, cardamom tea, lavender flowers, and wild musk.
Sam Rader, founder of Dasein, creates small-batch perfumes from her home in the hills of Los Angeles. The house gets its name from existentialist philosophers Hegel and Heidegger, who used the term "Dasein" (DAH-zyne) to define "human being" as the marriage between self-awareness and sensual experience. Dasein fragrances aim to awaken both.
