The scent of Lo Haiku is the stuff that legends are made of, an homage to Hai Karate! Hai Karate I would put in the same family as Old Spice and English Leather, all classics in their own right...but HK was different. Like the goofy younger brother of Old Spice that got the job done but never took itself too seriously. 
  • Top notes: lavender, bergamot, lemon, rosemary, anise
  • Middle notes: geranium, fern, carnation, cinnamon, cedar, heliotrope
  • Base notes: oakmoss, vanilla, tonka bean, amber, musk
Typically we as wet shavers collect the classic scents that our dads and grandpas wore, but this is probably more like a classic that your older brother wore...a classic none the less and a scent one should have, if not just for the simple sake of historical reference, in their den! 

Not only does this bottle contain the legendary scent of a certain aftershave of a bygone era, but it is also packed w/ some potent modern sensibility too!

I might also point out that no two of our aftershaves are formulated the same. Though they all contain some form of skin nourishing ingredients these too carry their own scent so they are taken into consideration when blending. Do they add to or compliment the scent as a whole or do they throw it out of balance? Perfuming is a delicate balance and an art of "pushing and pulling". It's never one size fits all in our lab.

My AS/Colognes tend to bring mindfulness to the act of slapping on a splash after a shave. The aim is to engage as many senses as possible for a full on sensual experience.

The crisp, immediate tingle and cooling action of the menthol, to the heat of the moment. Then comes the dry down...you will also notice the effects of the alum while the aloe, liquid silk, glycerin, Lavender Hydrosol and rose water bring a calmness to the skin. 

A Classic Scent w/ a Modern "Kick"...how fitting!

Okay so this Aftershave/Cologne is absolutely amazing. You guys have really nailed this on the head. I give this one 5 stars all the way, the scent is spot on it really takes me back to the early nineties when you could still, if you were lucky, find hai karate at your local store. This was one of those scents that really matures well throughout the day, I already have had two compliments today one how good I smell. Total homerun Doug and Fran, I love it!!

Holy roundhouse, Batman, what a classic, throwback scent!!! I was lucky enough to score the LE soap recently in a trade and immediately placed an order for the AS. Used them both yesterday and all I can say is WOW! Amazing quality and scent strength (like all PAA ASs) along with an awesomely nostalgic, masculine stink. Rounded everything out with a spritz of Azzaro pour Homme Edt (perfect pairing) and the rest of my day was a whirlwind of punches, blocks, kicks, and other assorted karate moves all in a vain effort to keep the ladies at bay. ;)

Kee Yaw!!!! This aromatherapy; high octane AS brings ones senses into overdrive. I would venture to say lovingly, this is one of the most powerful AS I've ever owned and yes I love every bit of it. The perfect mixture of floral and manly musk that just makes you feel you could take on anything.

If you are old enough to remember, I am, you'll love it. Spot-on.

This needs to have a whole line of products and be a permanent fixture. I did not pick up the soap but this aftershave/cologne last a really long time and smells great. Plus, if you like the sting of a good aftershave, you are going to love this stuff. I was too young for High Karate so I do not have a comparison. Kind of reminds me a bit of Old Spice but better.

This scent is awesome and long lasting. I had know idea what to expect when I ordered the Lo Haiku aftershave and matching shaving soap. It's so difficult to describe the scent, but it's subtle and pleasant. The big surprise was how long that it lasts. I used it at 7 AM yesterday morning and it was still easily detectable at midnight. Too bad it was limited to one per customer since I most likely would have picked up a spare.
