Eau de Parfum
Josh Meyer - Imaginary Authors
Josh: “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.
Dave: Whip-creamed, ripe fig - bitter walnut and dry woods powdered by Iris, sweetened by tonka. A warm, woody-gourmand perfect for winter.
Yesterday Haze Notes: Fig, iris, cream, tonka, tree bark, walnut bitters, orchard dust.
