SYNOPSIS: “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). “The memory of him is a rifle in my mouth,” Blumberg wrote, “and the scent of fig its trigger.” 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.
HOW IT WEARS
Yesterday Haze is one for our fig lovers! The marriage of green iris with whipped, airy cream together perfectly amplify the earthy, slightly sweet fig. The drydown reveals walnut and woods, as well as creamy, sweet tonka – the perfect base for this fragrance, helping to anchor it to the skin for 6-8 hours.
The seductive, dreamlike quality of this scent works like a magnet. It’s the ultimate earthy gourmand – perfectly combining sweetner notes with woodier notes. The result is seductive without being too loud or overt, leaving you wanting more.
