Burner Perfume No.6: Reflection, Water on the Desert an Atmospheric Scent Portrait of a Desert Thunder Storm & smell of Rain


Reflection opens with the scent of sage and the ozone of the approaching storm. As the rain falls, subtle florals begin to emerge, the desert plants expressing their gratitude by flowering. A mélange of cactus flowers, sage and yucca blooms. A hint of rain-washed cedar and mesquite floats on the air. For a moment you experience a profound contradiction: it is dry and it is wet, it is barren and it is blooming. It is water on the desert.

Note Structure
Top Notes: Sage, Ozone, Rain
Middle Notes: Yucca Blossom Accord, Cactus Flower Accord, Sage Blossom Accord
Base Notes: Texas Cedar, Mesquite Wood Accord

Designed as a “sister scent” to Burner Perfume No.1 Black Rock City, you can layer the two perfumes together and create a third perfume portrait of the desert environment. Black Rock City is earth/dry/ while Reflection is sky/wet. When combined you have a complete atmospheric scent portrait that is all-inclusive, earth and sky together.

The Scent Story: Burner Perfume** No6: Reflection
Imagine experiencing a thunderstorm in the midst of a desert. A storm so powerful and pregnant with rain, that large pools of water form across the desert floor and reflect the vast open sky above. That’s exactly what happened at Burning Man 2014. So it seemed a natural fit to incorporate that experience into the 2015 Burning Man Art theme: Carnival of Mirrors. Mirrors are all about reflection and this perfume is about that as well, both literally and figuratively as I contemplate my tenth year attending this festival.

**Burning Man-Inspired Perfumes
Burning Man, a week-long event in experimental community building, is a great source of artistic joy and inspiration. Each Burning Man event has a theme which inspires a profusion of fabulous art from its participants. I create a yearly “Burner Perfume” based on these themes. The first run of every Burner Perfume is given away at Burning Man as my artistic gift to the community.

I want you to love your purchase! The best way to ensure this is to try a sample size before investing in a full size product. Remember that everyone has unique skin chemistry so it pays to "try before you buy".

Since perfume is a body product, I can't except returns for obvious hygiene concerns. The exceptions to this rule would be an incorrect item being shipped or a faulty mechanism such as a sprayer that didn't work.
