So beautiful… So tranquil… What a way to begin the new year.
How are you all doing? I hope you’re looking forward to a fabulous 2022.
I’ve began my 2022 enjoying the lovely fragrance of Haiku. I’ve actually been wearing this every day since it arrived, which is quite something for me. If you’ve been following my posts here for any length of time then you’ll know that I did not wear fragrance for a while after my candle making and perfumery days. I became overly sensitive to aromas and had to lay off for quite some time, and now I am very selective in what I enjoy experiencing scent-wise, and I’m especially cautious in which aromas I choose to wear. I mainly lean towards warm, vanilla-type aromas as they seem to be easier on the nose than florals, but — and this is really something — Avon has surprised me over and over now with their new perfumes. They are so well done. So expertly blended. And I know they are using only the very best fragrance oils because they are absolutely beautiful to enjoy. This has been my experience thus far with all the new aromas that I have tried, and Haiku certainly is on the top of my list right now for a very enjoyable fragrance.
I reviewed Haiku Sacred a while back. I really love that version as well. They are both very different from one another.
If you love a fresh floral then you will love this original Haiku.
Top: Japanese yuzu
Middle: Delicate muguet
Bottom: Blonde woods
Japanese Yuzu is a traditional Japanese citrus fruit with an aromatic zest. You really get that in the top note. It’s beautiful but not overbearing on the citrus. Delicate Muguet (pronounced moo-gay) is French for Lily of the Valley. It’s a soft, delicate (as described) floral. Very easy on the nose. And Blonde Woods is an aromatic note meant to give you the soft sensuous feeling of cashmere. So, imagine all that blended together in one, and each note releasing itself to finish with a soft sensuality. Brilliant!
Which, I looked up the meaning of Haiku, and according to readpoetry.com, Haikus are Japanese poems that focus on a brief moment in time, juxtaposing two images, and creating a sudden sense of enlightenment. So, I suppose Avon’s name for this fabulous perfume (and perfume line) is really spot on. The aromas are like poetry in motion.
Here is Avon’s description of this aroma:
The calming and clean notes of Haiku Eau de Parfum bloom in harmony to create a fresh floral that evokes the serenity of a Japanese garden.
You can enjoy Haiku in several different forms. I am enjoying this fragrance in Spray and Deodorant form. Isn’t it cool to be able to match your deodorant with your perfume? I like to spray the perfume into the air and walk into it. It gives me a very nice, light, aroma that makes me feel beautiful.
Till next time, remember to stay fabulous and follow your joy!
