On a mountain retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico last summer, I experienced a new and captivating smell that I will never forget. After several months without rain, the ground cracked, dust everywhere, it began to do just that, rain. The aroma that followed the light rain was amazing. Suddenly the muted landscape around me became very apparent. The pinion trees, the junipers, the white sage, the mineral earthiness, the ozone, the dried grasses, so many things came together in a perfect harmony. An hour later it was all gone. In an attempt to experience that memory again, I asked six of our perfumers to take a shot interpreting my memory. The Desert Mountain Rain Series is the result, For a most amazing olfactory experience, contact us for the collection.
