American Perfumer. New Store

Hi there Perfume Posse! Dave Kern got in touch recently to tell has about his new venture. A perfume store and site dedicated to fragrant products created by American Perfumers, called American Perfumer.

Today’s post is mostly edited from their website and press release.

It’s so exciting when people realise their dreams and through doing that also help others. American Perfumer seems to be a magical combination of both. I wish them the best of luck and hope you will all go do some shopping there.

American Perfumer

Here are the brands currently stocked.

American Perfumer Brands Sept 2018

You’ll find them at

211 Clover Lane
Suite T
Louisville, KY 40207
(502) 888-1970

Tuesday through Saturday
11:00 to 3:00
and by appointment

American Perfumer will work to bring you limited Editions. “Colorado” by Dawn Spencer Hurwitz is our first. A signed and numbered batch of 50 bottles. It’s everything we hoped for and like nothing you’ve ever smelled. Dawn can do anything and “Colorado” is further evidence of her brilliance.

Kevin Verspoor has agreed to launch his first artisan perfume, “Step By Step,” with American Perfumer. After being the man behind the curtain for clients big and small over the past 20 years, this is Kevin unchained. “Step By Step” is a staggering beauty, made with the finest materials at full extrait/parfum strength.

American Perfumer, go on, go have a little look. You’ll be impressed with the selection and further, with the easy navigation of the website. I give you permission to shop.

    oooh! My BFFFE just moved to a little town just east of Lexington, which is only an 90mins from Louisville – and it’s on my way to her! Squeeeee!

    This really is delightful intel, Portia! Thanks so much for sharing! xoxoxoA

  • Ann says:

    Howdy, Portia! Thanks so much for sharing this (how did I miss hearing about this gem, especially one that’s semi in my neck of the woods)? Love to see great things happening perfumewise in the (American) South. Going college shopping up that way soon, so might have to take a little detour to visit. Such a great lineup of fragrant talent there. Thanks again!

  • crikey says:

    That sounds like a fabulous new venture.

    oooh, and if anyone is going to Louisville… I’d recommend dropping in to Garner Narrative. Never been there, but Angie Reed Garner is a terrific artist, and they show some really interesting work in the gallery that she and her mother run.

  • Tom says:

    Great! I wish them every success!

    • Portia says:

      HA! I must have been inspired by this in my last message Tom.
      Great to see you here on a Thursday.
      I hope you are surviving the rains in SoCal.
