Metropolis is a fragrance by DSH Perfumes that is inspired by urban city landscapes, modernism and minimalism. And I get that with Metropolis. This is like concrete roses, chrome aldehydes and lacquer-like sandalwood.
Metropolis opens with a rubber and leather under bright, chrome-like aldehydes. It’s an industrial fragrance with hints of vinyl, glue, rubber tires, leather and white musk. It reminds me of a rose dipped in concrete. The sandalwood in this comes across as a sharp and lacquer-like. Metropolis dries down to musk on hot pavement with that sandalwood varnish. It’s like an industrial floral amber with leather.
Notes listed include aldehydes, bergamot, geranium, rose otto, atlas cedarwood, leather, Australian sandalwood, patchouli, ambergris, oakmoss, castoreum and musk. Launched in 2014.
Give Metropolis a try if you like “industrial” and “cold” scents. Or perfumes like Boadicea the Victorious Complex, Comme des Garcons, Comme des Garcons Odeur 53, Andrea Maack Craft and/or Parfums Retro Grand Cuir. Metropolis is marketed as masculine. I find it unisex but it is a good choice for someone that enjoys modern masculine fragrances.
Metropolis comes in a few sizes. The 1 oz EDP retails for $100 at DSH Perfumes. Samples are also available for purchase.
