Full Scent Description
Be it for revenge or love, there is only one way to settle the score. High Noon features all of the atmosphere of a showdown in the Old West. Upon cold sniff and initial application, you will walk through the saloon doors and be greeted with the scent of smooth oak-aged whiskey, tobacco leaf, worn leather and a desert-warmed wood-paneled saloon. As High Noon settles on the skin, it is rich and warm with the whiskey note adding sophistication and enhancing the tobacco, leather and woods in a very alluring way. Shortly thereafter, you will begin to notice the smooth whiskey retreat as a sheen of light skin musk emerges. The scent of a spicy-chypre perfumed bodice sensuously and delicately wafts in with dry hay notes blossoming just beyond. A sun-baked Earth and touch of gun-smoke start to gently weave in through the other notes. The resulting dry down features warm dry woods, worn brown leather, tobacco, a soft blend of skin and red musks, hot sand and a touch of spice and golden amber. An incredibly layered blend with deep character and an intoxicating scent. Cold sniff and initial application leans much more masculine but the scent evolves quickly through each stage described above, the whiskey note present on cold sniff is tamed early on and the dry down will be enjoyed by women who like a warm woody-leather-tobacco dominant blend with lots of atmosphere. The addition of the exquisitely perfumed ladies’ bodices keeps this scent from falling into a dank overtly masculine fragrance category. Unisex.
High Noon features a blend of leather, tobacco, amber, red musk, skin musk, agar wood, sandalwood and chypre enhanced with the following essential oils and absolutes: tobacco, hay, buddha wood, labdanum, rooiboos, kapur kachari, aged patchouli and mitti attar.
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.
