Inspired by a vacation in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Timber Ridge is a hike among the fir and cedar trees of the Appalachians. Blending this fragrance is a labor of love thanks to the sticky, nearly solid consistency of the fir balsam absolute it contains. The extract has to be softened with gentle heat and slowly added to the rest of the fragrance concentrate. The entire mixture then has to be heated again to completely dissolve and blend the absolute. The end result is well worth the effort, though. Timber Ridge opens with the fresh scent of fir needle essential oil, layered over extracts of juniper leaf and juniper berries, supported by cedar and jammy, balsamic, coniferous fir needle absolute.
