Yesterday Haze

Brand: Imaginary Authors

Scent Description:

Fig, Iris, Cream, Tonka, Tree Bark, Walnut Bitters & Orchard Dust

“Just as sunsets are more beautiful on hazy days so, too, are the memories of yesterday.”

-Lenora Blumberg

“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.

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.

  1. This was my gateway into the wonderful world of fig perfumes! It is equal parts sweet fig, whipped cream, and walnut on me. I’m usually not big on foody / gourmand scents, but this one is subtle enough that it really works for me. It just smells cozy and warm and delicious.

  2. The best of a bad bunch. Very fig heavy, and milky. Soft and comforting, and very well blended, but overwhelming. It’s quite indolic, and given some people’s reaction to milk smells, definitely try before you buy. I found that I would enjoy this after I sprayed it, but that it would rather quickly become headachey and unpleasant for me and eventually I’d end up washing it off.
