    Everything in your earlier post was spot on, except for the actual name! I didn't even know that particular Cartier existed, but it was a really good match. It could have been that one for sure!!!! The one I was thinking of when I wrote the haiku is also considered unisex, IIRC. And I just read the copy on the website, and actually, they had a lovely description that was also surprisingly similar to hednic's Hermes "Un Jardin Apres Le Mousson" monsoon connection! So I guess my crummy haiku could have at least three possible correct answers! LOL! You are both right! But there is another one out there...

    Sorry I haven’t updated sooner! This is not the perfume I had in mind. I did not see the one that inspired me mentioned as unisex on the actual company website, but I have seen many other references to it as a unisex fragrance, and I have seen it discussed on the male board. It has also been around for over two decades. I had no idea that thievery of various sorts intersected with perfumery so much! lol

    I am still thinking about this one! I can't shake the thought of the Eiffel tower as the funnel shaped (albeit inverted) wire perch, but other than a kitschy Avon perfume bottle, I didn't find anything... and the only magic involved with that bottle would be if you had actually collected it and thought of it as masculine! lol!

    I'll give you hints for mine. The second line has something to do with the fragrance name.The first line has to do with the design of the bottle and the last line with the gender and color. Think about it with those hints.

    Oh, what a beautiful haiku! That perfume sounds lovely!!!! Hmmm... Vent Vert is probably too green and cool... Field Notes from Paris is apparently an orange blossom scent, and Paris has not been a field for a long time, lol... Maybe Chergui?

    Hednic, I am totally stumped by your last haiku!!!! Even with the hints... Sortilege is for women and the only perch would be the crows nest on "Le Galion," Incanto for Men sounds like it is light and possibly aquatic??? And now I see that you don't like Ferragamo much anyway... and I had other bad guesses too, which I cannot recall now. Mostly I have a failure buzzer (like from that horrible children's board game "Operation") going in my head when I think of your haiku, LOL!!!!!! It's a good challenge though; I appreciate that!!!!

    Here's another one:

    Soft, sweet powdered gloves
    Velvety skin of stone fruit
    Warm spice, honey hues

    This is not haiku. You need to re work it. It has to be 5-7-5 syllables! Those are the rules of this game. Yours is 13-9-20!
