If there is enough enthusiasm, I would be making these in full bottle sizes. I just loved the idea of haiku as tiny vials of perfume. It went so well. I am not totally sure of what I am going to do with haiku at the moment. :hrt::

How about putting them in the voting as a set, as well as individuals. You could see where they stand that way.

Gauze Screen

I agree that a large bottle of this one would be most desireable . . . It's a very comforting perfume to wear.

I totally understand the thinking behind it. I think it is quite genius in that way, but I just can imagine not having a big bottle of Gauze Screen in my collection. I adore it that much. :violin:

Okay, okay, you twisted my arm. I held off on ordering these because several sounded so amazing, I didn't want to fall in love with them and have my heart broken by not being able to buy a bottle. Now...oh yeah, I need to place an order lol (but I will wait until you're back from vacation). :rose4u:

Are they in actual bottles, or little vials like poppets?

AIKU (Liu Fangping-China)

Half the house is knee-deep in moon beams.
North and south stars struggle against what seems
To be the dying of a night tilted to day. From behind a green
Gauze screen, as if aware of coming Spring, an insect sings.

Mimicking the divine and elusive fragrances which tickle your mind in the sill of a perfect evening, an osmanthus-like sugary note marries with a bit of peach and rhubarb and a drop of lime. There is a feel to this of silver (the Silver fragrances from Possets). Quite romantic, lightly foody but in a come-hither way..on a moonlit night."

This is so incredibly beautiful. I'm quite speechless. I think I would buy a huge bottle of this if it was available full sized. Unfortunately, this small sample will have to do. :cry:
It is beautiful. Peach, something sweet and flowery but fresh at the same time. Perfect for a romantic summer night.
I would buy a big bottle of this if I could.

I think I'm gonna be in love with all the haiku. I don't want to see them disappear :cry:
