Every once in awhile a bright star will write a review of one of my natural perfumes that brings me to my knees. Beth has done this with her latest post at Perfume Smellin' Things. She has weaved a story that includes Viggo Mortenson in Hidalgo and the wild west. The review includes a giveaway.

Chaparral Perfume; A Real Bodice Ripper

Hidalgo is the perfect hero for this fragrance that embodies both the American Native Indian and cowboy of the California. I re-watched this film the other day, so delicious, here is a clip.

The chaparral is the name of the small biome located along the west coast of the US and South America. The community is also found in the Cape Town area of South Africa, the western tip of Australia and the coastal areas of the Mediterranean.

I used the word in reference to the plant community of the wild west.
