Twisted Lily’s thoughts:
As we all know by now fragrance can transport and trigger our imagination, and Yesterday Haze sings of timelessness in a bottle. Perfumer Josh Meyer brilliantly and uniquely unites fig and iris notes to create a near perfect accord in this woody floral magical fragrance. The scent of fig is sappy, gently green, fresh and milky, and the perfume’s opening is reminiscent of the ripe fruit, with the addition of creamy sweetness that comes from tonka, enhancing the fig and giving the composition bold dimension. The scent of iris is dry, hay-like, and powdery. Uniting the fig and iris magically brings us to scent of the fig leaf, and this is where this scent takes flight. Suddenly a lovely nutty, and woody complexity rushes in and reminds us of bright sunshine streaming in through a window of a wood-planked barn. We know, sounds crazy, but fragrance can do this. This is a dreamy fragrance that lives beautifully from start to finish on the skin. BTW-GDA, gorgeous dry-down alert, Yesterday Haze is a must smell.
Yesterday Haze, the subtly sinister follow-up to Lenora Blumberg’s acclaimed debut -Violet Disguise,- tells the story of a farmer’s wife who, after maintaining a decades-long affair with a crop duster pilot, decides to come clean to her husband, who also happens to be her lover’s employer. “Just as sunsets are more beautiful on hazy days,” Blumberg wrote, “so, too, are the memories of yesterday.” Set in California’s tranquil and dusty San Joaquin Valley, the elaborate tale unfolds like a dream, delicately shifting perceptions like the colors of a dimming dusk.
