Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

New Release: Foxy by DSH Perfumes

12 Comments

Tis the season of the fox!  For living in the heart of a metropolitan area, it always surprises me every spring that the local foxes seem to come out of their intown lairs to go hunting in the dew of the morning.  It’s always my delight when grabbing the newspaper on the front walk to see a fox go traipsing down the street.  As a city boy, this makes me extremely happy and I have to say that foxes are easily one of my favorite wild animals.  So I was thrilled to see that DSH’s latest offering was called Foxy.  Let’s see if this new fox on the block makes me equally as happy…

WHAT I SMELL:  Foxy opens with a spiced cinnamon and lightly boozy opening.  There’s also a anise candied note that reminds me of ribbon candy.  The perfume is warm, rather animalic and somewhat wild and feral.  After a little while, the feral starts to lessen and the perfume begins to purr as it softens and evens out.  The perfume doesn’t develop all that much.  Instead, it smoothens to a light and warmed floral amber that covers you in the softest of fur.  Yes, when wearing this you’ll definitely be foxy.

From the DSH Perfume website:

A smart, sexy, and playful retro-nouveau animalic fragrance that features the fur accord paired with a spiced – boozy beginning, and a rich, ambery drydown.  You will definitely feel FOXY in this!

WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  A fox of course!

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE FOXY: stealthy, content, smooth

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT FOXY:  No reviews to be found.

BOTTOM LINE:  Foxy is a sexy perfume that isn’t complicated, yet maintains an aura of mystery and seductive confidence with the most sublime drydown.  Now, this is my kind of fox!

  • Bone Rating:  3.5 out of possible 5 bones
  • Scent:  Animalic
  • Nose: Dawn Spencer Hurwitz
  • Classification: Unisex
  • Expense: Prices and concentrations vary via the DSH Perfumes website.  Review based on the Voile de Parfum version.

  1. Great rebiew Mr hound. I hacve a smaple of this from Dawn and will be reviewing it soon. You’ve really captured its warmth. I found it very retro and sort of friendly. I’d love to see a fox in real life. Lucky you. xx

  2. Thanks for the great reviews. What does the category “Nose” followed by the name mean?

  3. Another huge fox fan right down the road, and I’ve recently heard the kits gamboling out on the lawn in the wee hours. That is far more delightful than the sounds the adults make – have you freakin’ heard that?

    I just “discovered” some samples of DSH floating in The Sample Sea. I like several of her perfumes, and this one sounds pretty darn good! Thanks for another great review!

    Cue up Jimi Hendrix…

  4. I was able to see a fox somewhat close up at a wildlife refuge once. They actually smell a bit skunky.

  5. The closest I’ve ever seen a fox was probably several decades ago at a zoo, but I love watching them on pictures and videos. Not as cute as cats but really close 😉
    I haven’t tried anything from DSH in a while. This one has a good name – I should probably give it a try.
    (BTW, you always find such great photos to go with your posts!)
