Darling Clandestine Calliope Crash General Catalog Perfume Oil (Available)

True enough, you're everything Buffalo Bill said you were. Some days you'd never admit it-and other days you find yourself trying desperately to prove it. These crowds, they're here for the show. They want you to be as real as your rope, and they want to oust you as a charlatan. Sometimes both at once. They want saguaros and whiskey and painted Indians. Galloping shootouts, saloons and their girls. And true enough, there was that. All of that. But there was also the iron black night and its billion billion stars, the leather and the smoke, the mountain lion mother and kittens that allowed you an uneasy understanding, the heady breath of windswept sage in September, that peak in Montana where you could see the whole wide world and not a single soul. That's where you got to wondering what mattered and what didn't, where the line between hero and outlaw always got blurred, where you planted on a certain somebody a certain sweet kiss; where, when the crowds fade away, you always return. And wherever you go, the Wild goes with you.

Carefully blended and infused by me in small batches in vintage green glass wine bottles, this is a sharp, clean fragrance bright with roses and sage, with a sweet leather and earth finish. More than a dozen different scent elements and weeks of methodical alchemy make Tapadero no ordinary scented oil mix-it's a truly inimitable fragrance.

Handcrafted Calliope Crash fragrances by DarlingClandestine are suspended in pure sweet almond, rice bran and grapeseed oils. This listing is for Tapadero fragrance oil in a lovely little 1-dram "bitsy" vial. Perfect for tucking into your knapsack or making dear little gifts, these charming one-dram vials are the newest size from the DarlingClandestine apothecary. Their labels are simply images of the beloved scenes and characters from the Calliope Crash family.
