Gourmand | Small Batch | Base Notes "Best New Line" | Portland, OR
"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.
When to Wear: The seductive, dreamlike quality of this scent works like a magnet. Use it liberally during the day and, as it lingers into night, watch as those around you are lured into your sphere.
Notes: fig, iris, cream, tonka, tree bark, walnut bitters and orchard dust.
