Canyon Dreams


Canyon Dreams smells like California, the smell of clear blue sky, warm sun on citrus, and wind in the pines and eucalyptus. Launched in 2012 as one of the seven scents in California perfumer Keiko Mecheri’s Bespoke Collection, this fragrance for women and men is described as a spicy Oriental, which is like describing Chris Hemsworth as a tall Australian.
Canyon Dreams is a warm and sunny sunrise opening with sweet tangerine and tart bergamot which deepens from juice to zest, leaves and dust from citrus orchards adding some green earthiness. The feeling is light and airy as Canyon Dreams moves into the heart of creamy powdery sandalwood and spicy peppery rose – the soft floral accord wafts on the noonday breeze, trailed by hints of citrus.  
Oud and patchouli emerge in the base but with a genius light touch, blending with the heart notes into a serene incense-like accord to welcome the sunset. Then its night in the desert, the scents of sage and smoke and vanilla intertwine with soft spiced florals, and Canyon Dreams floats me away into infinity…...
Canyon Dreams is dreamy. Lighter and less resinous than Andy Tauer’s L’Air du desert marocain, it seems to float rather than sit on skin, but its mellow waft lasts for hours, and smells just wonderful.
