Reviews of Colorado

This is an amazing walk in the woods of the Colorado Rockies. At first there is a sweet woodiness to it, reminiscent of fresh maple syrup, but that fades away to an almost incense-like walk in the woods as you smell Spruce, Oak, Cedar, Fir, Cade, Pine and Balsam. Hints of bright Immortelle dance around the fringes of the scent.

Absolutely stunning!

Colorado is both the first fragrance released as a limited edition at the American Perfumer boutique of Louisville, as well as Dawn Spencer Hurwitz’s first release for the boutique.

Colorado is really a fantastic creation and worthy of being American Perfumer’s first exclusive limited edition. It smells like a wholehearted homage to the woods the American West, a love letter of various spruce notes, a distinctive greenness (described as a leafy accord), several types of resins, and just a pinch of lemon and bergamot to brighten up on the whole mix.

It’s woody but not in the sense of dead furniture, but rather, living trees, the sweetness of the resins being ubiquitous. Colorado as satisfying as a walk outdoor and as wholesomely sappy as Miracle on 34th Street, its balsam and amber providing sweet syrupy grace to the canvas of the trees.

It’s vegetable and fresh without being gourmand, outdoorsy without being dirty, artistic but still realistic. Colorado walks a lot of tightropes in achieving its balance and it’s through a zen-like patience, I imagine, that Dawn has achieved this harmony.

Overall, it’s a superb mix of spruce and resins with citrus and floral hints but a predominant sense of sappiness mix with woods in a mix that is versatile, both somehow relaxing and exciting, both winter and summer together.

I feel very lucky to have nabbed a bottle. Bravo to Dawn on this wonder, a real treat, and exemplary of why I love this hobby so much.
