Like a spiritual sojourn, this soulful scent enlivens the spirit with a sultry essence of warm woods. The soft drift of sacred smoke follows where the sun leads and when light fades to dusk, sensuality rises with the companion of an open fire beneath wide open skies.

Desert Nomad is created around Santalum Spictatum, a highly spiritual wood to the First People of Western Australia. The smoke of sandalwood is used in ceremonial ritual as a means to protect mind and body. To heighten the sacred essence of this woody fragrance, vetiver and Palo Santo are blended in the base bringing an added smokiness with a slight dry tone. Bursera Graveolens is a mystical tree that grows in South America, a name that translates to ‘holy wood,’ Palo Santo is believed to have energetically cleansing and healing properties. Spiced notes of pepper and ginger add complexity and depth while clary sage adds an elegant amber tobacco sillage.


Top: Ginger, Bergamot, Neroli
Heart: Pepper, Iris, Clary Sage
Base: Sandalwood, Palo Santo, Vetiver


The documented use of sandalwood dates back 40,000 years in Australia, India, Egypt, Greece and Rome where ancient cultures utilized the wood for spiritual and medicinal purposes. With it's calming aroma aiding in meditation, sandalwood is believed to open the third eye and align the chakras. Known as "the wish-fulfiller" it is believed that the scent of sandalwood is helpful in awakening the energy of your desires into the field of manifestation.


Apply liberally and wear daily as a reminder to inhale all the good things in life.
