Dawn Spencer Hurwitz is a true underground force in niche perfumery. Dawn has been working with aromatics for nearly 30 years, and is a pioneer of the American indie perfumery movement. She has developed many innovative concept perfumes and worked with top designers to consult and create exclusive perfumes.
Beginning her career as a painter, Dawn came to perfumery in 1991 while working at Boston’s famed ESSENSE Perfumery. She developed her talent for creating perfumes based on fine art principles, and since the early nineties, began developing her innovative lines of ready-to-wear artisan perfumes under her own label.
Dawn is also an experienced teacher of perfume history and fragrance design & aesthetics, as well as mentor to new, emerging artists.
