Olfactory profile: Woody | Mossy | Amber
Targhee Forest centers on the moment when the morning sun begins warming the pine trees and a resinous, sweet musk-like fragrance begins to fill the air. The aroma of the moist forest soil mingles with the scent of the silvery carpet of sagebrush covering the nearby hills. Venturing deeper into Targhee Forest, the fragrance of rich, woody cedar and lush oakmoss is grounding, soothing and uplifting.
As an artisan perfumer and a dad of two rambunctious boys I spend most of my day
indoors and do not have time to think. I sometimes feel isolated once I go into
my studio in the wee hours of the night. When it all seems too much, I head to Caribou-
Targhee National Forest, a short drive from my house. I leave stress behind and spend
time with nature. The silence of the forest cuts me off from the commotion at home as if
the commotion had never begun. This is a primal silence that centers me.
