As summer hits its stride Juniper Ridge‘s experimental Field Lab is in full effect – and they recently released their latest limited-edition wildcrafted fragrance. Topanga Canyon is a light, herbaceous scent that captures the first days of spring on the California coastline. Juniper Ridge sent me a bottle and I’m impressed – compared to the dark and smokey redolence of Winter Redwood, it’s a vivacious and floral fragrance tempered with notes of sage and oak. Founder Hall Newbegin says “It’s Neil Young’s Cinnamon Girl on an old car radio and the hills exploding with sticky green life. We wanted to capture the transcendent, sunflare moment when the whole California coast is a wash of color and light.” If you’d like to capture the moment, act fast – Topanga Canyon is available in a limited run of 315 hand-numbered bottles, and once they’re gone they’re gone.
