I once lived in Colorado Springs where I took long walks in the Garden of the Gods. One spring, I was walking there when the Gambel's Oak was just starting to bud. The scent was fresh and woody; very invigorating. I wanted to recreate it so I could remember that day. The major ingredients in Scrub Oak are Oakmoss and Juniper. I find it stimulating and very evocative of dry,desert springtime.
