When the fire is gone, what remains? Tonto Smoke is the lingering memory of flame-kissed wood up the mountain. While most people associate Tucson with its iconic and towering saguaros, just to the north of the Tucson Basin sits the iconic Mt. Lemon. With its towering ponderosa and juniper forests, hikers enjoy the cooler climbs and the notably fresh terpenic air wafting through the boughs of so many evergreens.

The MICA Story
MICA is named after Mica Mountain, the highest peak in the Rincon Mountain District of Saguaro National Park. Known as protector of the Tuscan Valley from the East, the journey to Mica summit is made up of saguaro cactus, low growing shrubs and grasses, juniper, pinyon, oak woodlands, and a exquisite assemblage of scents.
It was here, in the desert, that MICA was born.
10% Back to Nature
We donate a share of our proceeds to conservation projects based in the Sonoran Desert. Every purchase supports this important work.
Partnership with Local Producers
Behind each of our scents, you’ll find the expertise and craftsmanship of local partners who have accompanied us from the beginning.
We work directly with a small network of local suppliers and retailers that specialize in native and locally-cultivated plants, and share our vision of desert conservation.
Small Batch Formulation
Each blend replicates the best that nature has to offer, drawing inspiration from the aromatic biodiversity of Mica Mountain and the surrounding areas.
Our formulas are a blend of natural and ethically-sourced, human-made ingredients. By being intentional in the ingredients that we use, we lower our impact without compromising on quality.
Spirit of the Desert
Inspired by the aromatic botany of the desert, Mica documents and pays homage to the vastness of the ecosystem it reflects.
Our fragrances are uniquely defined by a sense of place. Being wildly creative and resourceful allows us to create a fingerprint of the desert and bottle it in a scent that reflects the area it was born.
