Situated at over 4,000 feet elevation, Patagonia is between the Santa Rita Mountains and the Patagonia Mountains in the riparian corridor of Sonoita Creek.
This aquatic oasis is spectacularly rich in natural resources.
In the mid 1700s, the Apache raided this area, forcing the native Sobaipuri to abandon their homes. Eventually, this tribe merged with the Pima and Papago (now known as the Tohono O'odham) tribes.
Ongoing raids by rival tribes destroyed chances of mining or farming. By the time of the Gadsen Purchase in 1853, the area was so ravaged that troops were sent in to restore order.

The scent is a mild, citrus blend with hints of Lilly and jasmine.
