An O'driu That Stays Extremely Innovative, While Improving Wearability. Fabulous!...
The opening to Linfedele Haiku should be familiar to O'driu fans, as it has the house herbal signature all over it (and in my case I view that as a very good thing, as I love the house herbal combo plenty-well). You get the nice herbal mix including some fiery red pepper, but this time it is tempered with the faintest hint of carnation, then a high quality non-powdery nor super-sweet vanilla (most likely the same stuff used in Leva) that tones the herbs down just a hair to make this a much more easily accessible composition. Under the herbal vanilla mix once transitioning to the heart notes a very subtle pine and coffee combination undertone emerges that can easily be missed if you are not paying close attention, with the vanilla and herbs still the stars. It just melds right in with the rest of the notes to provide a bit of spine to the accord, but never calling attention to itself. Finally, the dry-down sweetens a hair further, using a patchouli and mate tandem taking co-starring roles while the herbal vanilla accord recedes well into the background at this point. This dry-down is new to the line (or at least that I recall) and adds a nice twist to the development. Longevity and projection are both average.

I so hoped I would enjoy Linfedele Haiku out of the samples I received because it happens to be in a price bracket that is much more doable on a budget at least in relative terms at 180 Euros. I am happy to say that I absolutely love, love, love it. I know some have a difficult time with the culinary herb mixture the house frequently uses, but not I... That said, the use of high quality vanilla in just the right amount to tone down the spice and herbs a bit is quite the accomplishment and I think it makes the accord much more approachable to folks that find the "full dose" just a bit too much. The mate and patchouli dry-down is a bit more simplistic than some of the most complex scents from the house, but it smells great and the scent over-all is anything but simplistic for sure. I would say this is definitely right up there with the best the house has to offer, and is easily the best value I have encountered from it to date. It goes without saying I highly recommend Linfedele Haiku and have put my money where my mouth is in purchasing a bottle. I give this truly excellent "Top 10 List" worthy composition 4.5+ stars out of 5.
