applied, you get a blast of rain and herbal sage, pine and a touch of
creosote. It has a slight bit of High Desert odor but if High Desert
were completely drowned in rain and had pinon, ponderosa and deep char
notes. The smoke/fire accord is very resinous, like burning pitch. It is
deep, not an acrid smoke or bbq but a thick sap on fire. It sits just
at the base of this fragrance and is awash in rain and desert plants.
The rain/creosote bush scent does not last for hours into the dry down
aside from a trace but it is present for some time. The blend does
eventually head more herbal and woody but there is no mistaking that
through the whole wear of this perfume, you will pick up different
desert elements. High Desert is more sage dominant but you can pick out
the sage in Desert Thunderstorm as well.
