Imaginary Authors

A City on Fire

  • Try a sample first! 

    Perfumer Josh Meyer Meyer dreamed up a brilliantly dark novel, A City on Fire, and then made a scent to go with it. The premise is that two matchmakers -- one who literally makes matches in a factory and one who pens a dating column -- both witness a high-profile murder and then come together as an unlikely vigilante pair to save themselves. Will someone please write this book for real? Spritz this fragrance on after dark or anytime you are looking for trouble.


    Notes include cade oil, spikenard, cardamom, clearwood, dark berries, labdanum, and burnt match.
