Now that I've fixed this.... Haru is the best cherry blossom scent I've ever sniffed. This may be because I really love hibiscus.

This is definitely a different dimension on cherry blossom, and the hibiscus is nearly equal an element in the mix.  It's really interesting because it has more of a fresh evocation to me.  Normally I prefer fairly intensely sweet types of cherry blossom fragrances (Mysteries of the Orient is my favorite) but I like how this mingles that dense quality of cherry blossom with the airy/fresh aspect of the tea and hibiscus.  It makes me think of another scent from...last year?  The year before, maybe?  Gah, I can't think of what it was.  Not, like, exact, just a similar spirit.  In the long drydown, the cherry blossom part comes through with a familiar weight, but softer overall than previous types.  And I especially like that there's no soapiness.  So this is a really nice floral blend for Spring/Summer, I would say.

This is definitely a new take on cherry blossom. The hibiscus and tea make it much fresher than your typical cherry blossom scent. It does read a bit soapy on me during initial stages. Long dry down gets softer and a little more cherry blossom-esque. Really really softens up but also fades fairly fast on me. Very nice freshly showered skin scent.

Haru is a pretty floral. Subtle and delicate. It almost becomes powdery, but never quite reaches there. I would say Haru is sheer, but not clear, though I'm not sure that will make sense to anyone other than me. 

 

As it dries down, it becomes a touch (really, just a touch) sweeter and the tea becomes more noticeable.  Haru is light and feminine, yet still serious. At first, I wasn't sure Lace was really a match, but after a while, I could see how they vibed. In this mixture, Lace didn't give me that heady, giddiness that it usually does in the first hour, but also didn't  give me that come down, either. It was the first time I could really understand how other people find Lace more wearable. Chemistry, man. It's wild.

 

An hour or two in, it really stars to bloom and becomes even prettier. Cherry blossom, hibiscus, and tea can all wear kind of dry one me, but in this blend, that dryness isn't there. After even longer, it does get a bit soapy, but a pretty soap, like a fancy bath wash.

I was expecting the cherry blossom to be fairly strong and too much for me but instead it starts as a nice and light with a bit of tea and then blooms when dry to a really delicate soft, sweet floral. It hangs pretty close to the skin but also sticks around based on my first try with it though I'll have to see how it goes on after some time.
