A Haiku-Kobayashi Roof of Hell

Post by Maya »

Possets' description: "A tremendously profound haiku, perfectly reflected in the perfume which goes with it. Earth (with a whiff of civet), a Hell-like antiphon, and the wild beauty of Linden blossom and violets. A really unusual combination and a memorable one."
If you can't be a success, be a spectacular failure!

Seriously, among those of you who got the whole set of Haikus, someone must have tried this one. I would sooooo love a review, or even just random thoughts about this one.

In this world
We walk on the roof of hell
Gazing at flowers


This is a really nice floral with something a little spicy going on. Decent throw too!

Seriously? Someone else must have tried it.
I re-applied around midday and the civet came out more The drydown is great. It stayed kind of "floral-y" ?

This is gorgeous, I just got a decant of this and have been trying it. I can smell violets and a golden floral/honeyed note that I think must be the linden, with something a bit extra in the blend as it dries and develops--maybe the civet? It's a lovely blend, and if you like those specific florals, I think you will enjoy this.
