    No, never heard of them. High Desert and TX Lavender to me, would be worth trying.

    If it smells remotely like the high desert, you can count me in.

    "At Boyd's of Texas, we are craftsmen, born of the heat and pollen and pine trees of the southern states. Descendants of electricians and brick layers. We believe in hospitality, humility, and hard work. This is the warmth we try to bring to every product we manufacture." I read this in voice that does pickup truck commercials.

    Sounds interesting! They also have a fourth scent, Green Vetiver. I ordered samples of leather, lavender and high desert. Will report back when I’ve sniffed.

    Oh great, caz! It's the high desert plains of the Old West, and you're the scout!

    Yes, if they ever hired a voice-over actor, it should be Sam Eliot.

    That sounds like it'd be a local brand of bespoke bar-b-que sauce ...

    Which means, of course, now I have to try some.

    Got my samples, first up is TX Lavender. It does what it says on the bottle: a lovely straightforward natural-smelling lavender. Quite pleasant and soothing.

    I can smell the sage, cedar and vetiver, not so much the frankincense, leather or tea. Will report back in a few hours on the drydown.

    Sounds nice, but they're asking quite a lot for a simple lavender. Looking forward to your thoughts on the others! High Desert and Cuero sound rather interesting.

    Interesting. The coffee shop that they colab'ed with for High Desert is less than two minutes away from me. Might have to go down tomorrow and grab a sample

    I sprayed Cuero on one arm and High Desert on the other, since the lavender is gone. (it lasted a few hours, about what I would expect from a natural perfume). Cuero is a light leather scent (none of these scents are powerhouses), very pleasant and enjoyable. I do smell the wood and leather, perhaps a tiny hint of jasmine, but very faint. High Desert is a lovely dry herbal scent, worth sniffing if you’re looking for this sort of scent. Not being very familiar with the smell of the high desert, I can’t say how faithful it is, but I like it. I can smell the herbs, cedar and birch tar. All their descriptions of the notes seem to be quite accurate. These are atmospheric scents, not perfumey, very natural smelling. I will wear the samples with pleasure but probably won’t buy a bottle as I tend to go for stronger scents.

    Do you detect anything like creosote in High Desert, caz? A sort of tarry, medicinal smell? I'm thinking of the smell of the creosote bush, which I associate with high desert plains.

    Unfortunately I wouldn’t be able to recognize creosote, not familiar enough with it.
