Full Scent Description

This perfume has been slightly reformulated from the original. It smells very similar to the previous version but is not identical. High Desert is a dry, woody, herbal reverent blend designed to evoke the atmosphere of the hot unforgiving, yet majestic, desert habitat of the American southwest.   It features dominant notes of herbal white sage and desert sagebrush with supporting background notes of soft woods, sweet Indian tobacco, hay, Saguaro cactus, juicy prickly pear cactus, baked sand and just a touch of smoke, labdanum and red musk.  Despite the complex palette used to create High Desert, these notes were selected to enhance and compliment the beautiful sage blend.  On cold sniff you will experience a dried sage leaf with a sweet fruity prickly pear top note and dry hay and tobacco finish.  On initial application the crisp green Saguaro cactus emerges amidst an endless open blue sky.

High Desert softens soon after application with emphasis on a blend of light woods and dry herbal sage with the occasional whiff of sweet tobacco and hay.  The dry down hugs very close to the skin and liberal application is recommended to increase its strength and longevity.  It does not morph significantly but after several hours the labdanum will be detectable.  High Desert is a meditative, beautiful and very relaxing fragrance that is especially wonderful before bed.  Atmospheric, Unisex.

High Desert features a blend of fragrance oils along with the following essential oils, absolutes and CO2s: White Sagebrush, muhuhu, nagarmotha, copal bark, sweet clover, labdanum, tobacco, sugandha and mitti attar.

Product Information

Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance (may include essential oils).
Size:
 Approx 5ml packaged in a glass vial with protective box.
Other: Our Perfume oils are all Vegan with the exception of Inquisitor, which contains beeswax absolute.
Application tip: If your roller ball runs dry during application, remove black cap, hold your bottle vertically with roller ball pointing to the ground and forcefully shake/thrust the bottle down one time to replenish the oil in the well. Now it is ready to reapply to your skin.

Storage and Shelf Life

Most of our perfume oils are good for several years.  We use rice bran oil as a carrier oil.  Due to rice bran’s high anti-oxidant content, it has a very good shelf life.
Storing your oils appropriately will affect the shelf life.  Be careful to store your Solstice Scents products, especially perfumes, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place as heat and light can age the products.

Safety Precautions for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers

Solstice Scent’s opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester.  You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing.  Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier.  Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester.  Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed.  Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers.  You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly on the skin or try a few sprays of Glace combed through your dry hair or a little of the perfume oil rubbed in your hair.

About Solstice Scents

Solstice Scents started serving the local Gainesville, FL area in 2004. We originally sold soap, lotion, salts, candles, body oil, loose hand blended incense powders, dream pillows, eye pillows and neck pillows. We took our orders on order forms printed on parchment paper, hand wrote all of our tags and attached them with satin ribbon and
affixed our familiar mastic tree labels to bottles with rubber cement. Customers were able to select ala carte fresh made items directly off the order form, including customizing candle color or fabric choices. Bath salts were offered in upcycled Monin syrup bottles from the coffee shop Angela used to work at, topped with corks ordered from a wine supplier.

The business has evolved significantly since that time, though the same spirit, inspiration and aesthetic is infused into each item. While we no longer offer custom made items, all products are made with the same attention to detail and in small batches to ensure freshness. Our labels are designed in house with the original mastic tree
logo. The labels are applied by hand to the products. Each fragrance is still handwritten on the product label to this day.

Product Enquiry

ALL product descriptions and information is provided by the brand. Although we strive to provide you with an accurate portrayal of the product, please keep in mind many factors are subjective. What we have listed as ‘microglitter’ may be described by the customer as just a ‘glitter’ or ‘texture’; an ‘emerald green’ may be seen as a ‘rich teal’ by the customer. Our product swatches are picked carefully by our team, but please remember that swatches are also subjective to application technique and lighting. While every attempt is made to accurately portray all product colours, variations from what you see on your screen compared to what you see with your own eyes are inevitable due to individual monitor settings.

We also encourage customers to view our review tab (if applicable), and to visit the site of the swatcher (linked at base of 'description' tab, if applicable).
