Juniper Ridge natural fragrances are extracted in the field using pre-industrial perfume techniques – juice presses, converted whiskey stills, steam, and copper pipes and are mixed with organic sugar cane alcohol. They are 100% natural fragrances made with tree pitch, plant sap/juice and steam-distilled oils. All the plant trimmings and tree boughs are sustainably harvested. In their Interact publication they state that the Backpacker Cologne is the highest expression of Juniper Ridge's mission to bring the stillness and the beauty of the mountains, the deserts and the coasts of the West into your daily life. All of the Backpacker Colognes are named for the place they come from. They are 100% local and wildcrafted, harvested, extracted and formulated by Juniper Ridge. They're trail-found and trail-made in order to truly capture the beauty of the outdoors.
Sierra Lakes Basin is a Research and Development Field Lab Wilderness Cologne which means it was made on the trail. It was created on a beautiful evening in late June along the northern crest of the Sierra Nevada. It used many ingredients that the company had never used before including mountain ash and gooseberry flowers and was the result of a perfect couple of weeks in the mountains where nature creates a magical moment. A time when the wind is full of honey, the pine trees drop their pollen and there are thunderstorms every afternoon.
Sierra Lakes Basin features notes of High Sierra sunshine, creek water filled moss, berry flower blossoms, green lichen and fir trees. Only 46 bottles of this fragrance were created and it sold out immediately.
