In the vial, the sage is really potent but on my skin, the musk comes out fairly quickly to ground this one in the realm of fragrance.  As it evolves I get more of the desert landscape evocation, it does have an earthy-dusty kind of aura going on, but again the musk helps to integrate the elements within the context of actual fragrance.  I don't really get the bourbon, it may need some more aging for it to pop out, probably in the top.

 

I think this is an especially nice daytime fragrance, so good for work and/or play.  There's a complexity to it but also a unity which embodies the concept quite well.

 

ETA: the woody aspect comes out more in the long drydown.

This one smells fabulous on me and I am going to wear it again today. The Hay stands out the most on my skin and to my nose, and we're having a Psychic Faire at the shop tonight so it's a good one to wear, as Hay brings out chatty friendliness in people. I love me some earthy nature-y scents, and appreciate being able to experience the lightness of the soul that evokes for me, without dealing with mosquitoes.

I don't really get the hay, I wish I did!  I like that note.  For me it's primarily sage and musk.

Dude! It's MOSTLY Hay with a little Sage, you are getting it! The two just meld really well together and you are reading it as Sage. 😛

Over the course of this day, I’ve worn Ghost Dust, Soul Cakes, and Butterscream Lemon, which is more than enough for one day, but I just had to reach for one more. Holliday seems safe enough, I know that I don’t want to smell like dirt/earth, Totem: Bat made that really clear, and I’ll never reach for something with hay as a primary note, so I figured I could get into bed with this on and just observe that it’s not for me. So why am I laying here huffing my wrist?! 
I think I need to get this one on my man tomorrow. There’s that earth note underneath it all, so not a me scent,  but I’d love to be smelling off of him!

This is a blast of Hay at first and now I smell the Egyptian musk and love it! It feels like the Wild West I had a vision of standing on a plain dressed as a pioneer. This is so cool!

holy hay! wet, it was instantly down memory lane to those seasonal hay-ride-at-the-orchard experiences (sans petting zoo ;)). dry, the hay tones down a bit, and it gets a bit more earthy, but it's equally sweet, definitely outdoorsy, uplifting, and is such a happy scent, every time I catch a whiff I smile. it's grassy without feeling green at all, the whole thing is just delightfully earthy and sweet. it makes me wish I was back in the northeast, which is incredible on its own, since I'm miserable in anything below 70F, haha! just super cheerful, I really enjoy this.
