A Fall 2023 release, Old Florida Backroads is a woody and earthy atmospheric fragrance. It opens with a top note of sunlight streaming through green tree leaves. A puff of limerock dust rises from the road, followed by the scent of sun-warmed soil. Fallen logs are baked by summer sun, the horizon is obscured by a shimmering heat haze and tendrils of Spanish moss sway from century oak branches. A charcoal sky approaches from behind, the scent of rain sprinkling on limerock carried on the sudden whips of wind. The deluge gives way to blue skies and wispy white clouds as swiftly as the storm erupted. Steam hovers in the air and the aroma of damp earth quickly shifts to the diffusive hot woods and a touch of moss on the drydown. Old Florida Backroads features notes of sunlit leaves, dusty limerock road, warm soil, baked woods, heat haze, Spanish moss and rain. It is an eau de parfum, edp. 


cafleurebon: To my nose, Old Florida Roads opens with Solstice’s distinct petrichor, a first-rain accord that evokes the kind of summer shower that appears out of nowhere, soaks the scorched earth, cools the sultry air, renews life, and disappears as quickly as it came. A rich soil accord, common ground (pun intended) in many Solstice Scents, emerges through the shower in a delicate rain-dance of clean and dirty. It’s lively and rejuvenating. As we progress further down the road, the damp earth dries under a blazing sun to a red/ brown clay and the dusty limerock road note emerges beside the dirt and mossy vegetation, grounding the composition with a touch of forlorn nostalgia. This element also exudes a sense of adventure, as you crank up the radio and roll down the windows, enveloped by the sun-soaked landscape. The unique addition of a “heat haze” note adds an intriguing layer of warmth and dimension, while Spanish moss weaves its delicate tendrils into the composition, ribbons of budding greenness through time-worn browns and grays. As mentioned, many of the creations in the Solstice Scents universe are deftly composed to a evoke a story, a journey; accords are layered to evolve in tandem with the chapter. Old Florida Backroads is a scented roadmap that encapsulates a backroads daytrip on a sweltering summer afternoon, unveiling its intricate facets hour by hour, mile by mile. To add, it is as wearable as any earthy patchouli-based composition, particularly in the dry-down. This is a multisensory experience wherein the realization is as ingenious as the concept, beautifully capturing the essence of exploration and the joy of discovery. Where will Old Florida Backroads take you?
