Through the Desert
Through the Desert is a whirlwind of ingredients originally meant to go into my Anubis blend. I had wanted to make a desert scent but didn’t know what it would smell like. As I was blending Anubis, there were a lot of ingredients which seemed Egyptian or desert-like but they either didn’t fit the concept of that god or they didn’t fit the scent profile I was creating. I realized that those ingredients were what I wanted for Through the Desert so it was easy to create Through the Desert immediately after Anubis.
This blend opens with a bouquet of Middle Eastern herbs like cumin and sage, then continues with a pure fantasy based in frankincense and myrrh. The base note is dominated by the ever popular Egyptian musk. On my skin, this is a very long lasting fragrance.
