Actually I don't get the smoke. Only olibanum, bitter herbs, sage, woods and something minty/salty. Chaparall is natural and raw, but the longevity and sillage are horrible! Half an hour and I don't smell anything. I have solid version.

Solid - overwhelmingly smoky. Was hoping for more of a chaparral/ocotillo vibe which the liquid may have.

Roxana's 'Tangent' fits the bill nicely. It's more what I expected 'Chaparral' to be: SoCal without the campfire. It's an off-shoot, so limited quantities available.

Solid. Oh my gosh, this smells like Southern California in the Fall. Exactly, down to the hint of wildfire. Usually I go for more floral scents, but this is such a familiar smell to me I can't get enough of it!
Roxana Villa's fragrances were a great find. She's on Etsy & you can buy solid sample minis to try them out. There are a couple that I'm buying for sure! Thank goodness for a California perfumer, not owned by a huge corporation.

Liquid version- Very woodsy and vibrant. It smells like sun beaming down an drenching driftwood in an herbaceous desert. There is a hint of campfire but don't think it's overwhelmingly obvious. It's also a little salty.

Overall, a clear bright but herby aromatic wood scent. This would make a good everyday during the daytime fragrance . Definitely would not offend anyone and a must if you like wood scents. Reminds me of Organza Indecence (not completely, but has same wood vibe).

The liquid version is much more clear, delicate and woodsy than the solid is. The liquid version is very beautiful and i would recommend over solid.

Very smoky! Smells just like a campfire. I was hoping for a sage scent similar to the wild sage that grows in our yard, but this was not it sadly.

highly recommended incense aroma, especially in the solid form (and I usually avoid solids due to lack of depth and poor sillage), perfect for layering with spicy and woodsy aromas or just on its own, and Ms. Villa's eco-friendly approach to her products is commendable! Check out her site to view the entire range and a special treat - her original artwork!
