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.
Big Sur is the scent of driving down the coastal highway through misty redwoods with the smell of wild sage and sea mist in the air.
