Brand: Solstice Scents
A frozen expanse of untamed early America stretches as far as the eye can see. The boughs of cedar and conifers are heavy with snow. Your steed is laden with provisions, taking a slow measured pace through this unfamiliar region. Subtle wafts of your last fire emanate from your coat. Your saddle is warm and sturdy beneath you as your ride with trusty musket close at hand, prepared for the uncalculated dangers only the deep winter wilderness can oblige.
Flintlock is an intensely dark, woody, smokey and slightly coniferous blend. It is a combination of worn brown saddle leather, Virginia cedarwood, tobacco absolute, black pepper, sandalwood and a medley of other woods with a touch of evergreens, bayberry and smoke that will plunge you deep into a Pioneer’s winter in the American frontier. Flintlock is darker on cold sniff and initial application than on the dry down. The evergreen and bayberry notes are very mild and primarily detectable at this stage in the opening. The blend wears like a warm brown leather jacket infused with cedar and smoke. It is woody, smoky and refined on the dry down.
