Desert Blush is a portrait of the Western Australian desert at sunset. The harsh light of day softens, turning the red soil to deep pink as the earth exhales, filling the air with a sensual, dry, and sweet aroma. Desert Blush is a heady floral scent featuring wild-harvested Australian sandalwood and a hint of the intoxicating floral note of Australian Boronia. Raw Spirit works with indigenous and marginalized communities, either directly or through partnerships, to sustainably source rare and unique natural ingredients for their fragrances.

Perfect for a night out
Musky, woodsy, gorgeous scent. I feel luxurious wearing this, definitely great for date night, not your everyday perfume. EDIT: Now that I've worn this fragrance everyday for the past week+, I'm in LOVE with it. I kept forgetting to change the cartridge so I kept using this one! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Very pretty
I like this fragrance very much. It’s a very close to the sk9n scent on me. Longevity is not great but I’m thinking of buying the big bottle just to spray it more.

Grew On Me
This was my second order from Scentbird and honestly at first I didn't think I'd be a fan. I'm not big into floral scents but gave it a go. This isn't a traditional floral scent, there are definite woodsy notes, a touch of sweet like maybe vanilla, and on my skin a rich smell like a dark fruit. I do add it to my rota, it survives an office day without being overwhelming and I'd imagine it's a great compliment to date nights. If you're looking to step out of the woodsy fragrance safe spot this is a good step for a more feminine but still sexy warm smell.

It is a very nice light scent. Not too floral, woodier. I love the idea of this company and was glad that I liked this scent. I found it very inoffensive to other people.

It does smell like the desert
I love this fragrance. I live in the Sonoran desert and it smells very like the desert here. It last for a long time on me. I especially like that it's not too floral or sweet.

Clean and floral
This fragrance has a clean baby powder floral scent. It's strong when you first put it on , then it dries down to a light baby powder scent. I absolutely love this fragrance. I don't know how long it last yet. But I don't care , I will definitely be purchasing a bottle of this. I can't say this reminds me of anything I have ever worn before. It's very unique.

Not a fan of this one!!!
My first impression was not a nice one. I sprayed it on and I thought it smelled like a mans bathroom after someone had just sprayed it with perfume. Strong urine and perfumy don’t mix well.

I love it . I think
When I first sprayed it on , it smelled amazing ... cedar , sandal wood ,and violet were all present but not too strong ... after sitting a moment it started to smell a little spicy and then like something I remember but can't figure out what. I think the ylang ylang threw me off a bit.. on a positive note NO POWDERY SCENT or "old lady smelling " as people say .... but this is definitely a desert lover , hiker , outdoorsy , hippie person... it's great for any time of day I believe, but put with friends, or dinner , or a summer night would be the best time to wear it . I'm still not a hundred percent sure but I'm still wearing it so I must love it lol And my rating was supposed to be mysterious in the second bubble I don't know why flirty was put there

Very sweet
Very sweet smell of Jasmine softened by powder and slightly spiced with sandalwood. This is too youthful a scent for me to wear alone so I use it as a layering scent to femme up some of my masculine colognes. I like to layer scents and I like to wear men's scents. The scent does not last more than a few hours.

Very nice
I really like this scent, which makes Scentbird 2 for 2. It is floral, but not overly sweet, and it has a nice peppery tone that balances it. Overall a nice dry impression that isn't exactly light or heavy. My only complaint is that it does not last very long- very little staying power. Which is too bad, because I kind of love it.

Reminds me of the deserts I’ve visited
I really like this. It’s truly a desert-in-bloom scent. I’ve never been to Australia, but it brings me to Morocco . It also very much reminds me of my favorite dry shampoo—r+co Death Valley dry shampoo, minus the powdery smell that the dry shampoo has.

Perfect for desert babies
I grew up in the desert and, very occasionally, I miss the sage brush, cactus, and wildflowers of home. This perfume has some (but not all) of the beautiful smells of the desert. BUT this is an Australian based perfume, while I grew up in the deserts of North America, which is probably why it doesn't exactly remind me of home. I love the dryness of the perfume and how it wears delicately on the skin. I used the entire .27 mls quickly (it was my very first from Scentbird) and I'd happily buy again.

Not a fan at all. Definitely would say it's more on the manly side than female. Wouldn't consider this a unisex scent.

Smell like granny perfume
Not what I thought it'd be, too musky and woodsy for me. I thought it'd be flowery and powdery, it has a sour scent as a top note. After I got it, I have to check my queue to see if they sent me the right one, cause this is not my jam

thrilling and elusive
Perfumes are supposed to arouse feelings and provoke memories, and this is one of those for me. This is time-travel in a 60-spritz cylinder! .I found the woody top notes heady and profoundly nostalgic, and just beneath those there's a vibe so personal, and so hard to describe, that it feels like it was made for me alone. By "time-travel", btw, I don't mean classic or powdery or granny-pants. It is entirely new and unfamiliar combination of notes to me, extremely exciting!. I will keep chasing the feelings it gives me for a long time, and will probably order this one again.

Love this...now one of my favorites
I love the lightly feminine but not powdery or overly flowery smell. It has a natural scent to it but not woodsy. It's like walking through a meadow of cactus flowers after a cleaning rain...it just makes you feel clean and beautiful.

Wanted to love this one after two duds in a row, but sadly I didn't. Ended up washing it off after trying it a couple of different times, just smelled musty and stinky to me. Had to throw the whole tester away after a couple of sprays. Sad!

Woodsy
Not sure about this one. I wore it out and it smelled like roses. But the second time, indoors it is definitely more woodsy smelling. Reminds me of a used bookstore or grandma's house. But I don't hate it. Musky. Unique.

It's great!!
After a few failed attempts over my last few purchases, this one is a breath of fresh air. Love it! Something about it really does remind you of Australia. It's warm and earthy and raw like its name. It's boots, jeans and a flannel shirt and it's the confident wedding guest all in one fragrance. Wish it lasted longer.

I enjoyed this perfume. It’s unique. You can smell floral, musk, fresh green accords, and just a hint of spice all in one. Would I buy a bottle? Yah, I think I just might. If you like florals, give this one a shot, very pretty.

There is something about this fragrance I am obsessed with! It's a little strong at first spray, but it quickly develops into a lovely soft, earthy fragrance. The notes are well balanced that you can wear it all day. I give it another spritz or two for the evening. I love the crisp, freshness of this fragrance. I like it so much I can't wait to try other Raw Spirit fragrances!

Very woody, almost unisex to my nose, this really is evocative of sun-baked earth in the desert. I really get next-to-no floral notes from this, but that's ok, it doesn't need them. I've heard good things about this brand, and can't wait to try the others in my queue

I really wanted to like this. The description made it sound perfect. But on me all I smell is cedar. As in straight up "I just changed the bedding in a hamster cage" cedar with no other notes in it. And while I like cedar notes in my perfume, this is too sharp and astringent for me. I will not wear this one so it was a total miss for me.

I love this perfume! It lasts much longer than I thought it would, which is important for me since I'm using the subway in NYC during the summer. It has a really nice fragrance, definitely gender neutral so I wouldn't recommend it to someone who prefers "feminine/girly" scents. I plan to use it a lot this fall, especially on days when I want to give off more of a strong/confident vibe.

I LOVE this perfume. I received a sample in my birchbox a couple of years ago and immediately purchased the full size bottle. It smells so soft and beautiful. Like you are laying in a bed of white flowers. It is not over powering. With a tiny tiny spicy hint. I'm so happy this brand is now on Scentbird. I'm adding all the others to my monthly list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
