DSH Perfumes The Beat Look EDP Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes The Beat Look

I don’t know if I’ve already said this or not, but if you have not tried DSH Perfumes YSL Retrospective Collection for the Denver Art Museum, you should. Especially if you are a fan of vintage and/or classic perfumes.

The Beat Look is inspired by Dior from 1958-1964. It’s inspired by France’s infatuation with young, American culture and YSL’s first perfume launch, Y. Yeah, beatniks. Yeah, the alt-cult of a lost generation. 

When sniffing, The Beat Look, you know you’re sniffing something inspired by the early 1960’s. It opens with dry aldehydes over retro stewed stone fruits. The Beat Look is a green floral with bitter galbanum and heady hyacinth. The fragrance dries down to a powdery orris and leather with vetiver and moss that wears closely to the skin. It’s vintage awesomeness.

Notes listed include aldehydes, bergamot, mirabelle plum, neroli, peach, Bulgarian rose, centifolia rose, gardenia  grandiflorum jasmine, honeysuckle, hyacinth, orris, amber, Australian sandalwood, Brazilian vetiver, civet, East Indian patchouli, green oakmoss, leather and musk. Launched 2012.

Give The Beat Look a try if you like vintage perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Rochas Femme, YSL Y, Grès Cobochard, Estee Lauder Azurée and/or Givenchy Givenchy III. I consider The Beat Look unisex but since it does remind me of other classic chypres, many may associate this with the feminine.

I feel that for an EDP, The Beat Look has above average projection and longevity.

The 1 oz EDP retails for $125 at DSH Perfumes. Other sizes and samples are available.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONRetro 1960’s chypre – leather, fruit and moss. It’s one to try if you like chypres or vintage perfumes. Or vintage chypres.

    1. Same here. I have emptied every single sample from the collection. I think for me, Beat Look is the one that I would wear the most. But at the same time, I like a few of the others and the minis are usually enough perfume for me.

    1. Lucky you! There are some real gems in this collection (well, in my opinion). I’ve drained every last drop from every sample in this collection, still trying to decide which I would like a FB of.
