    Perfumer Josh Meyer's imaginary author Philip Sava is back, this time with O, Unknown! Sava, at age 65, was given less than a year to live, so he set off from his home in Madagascar for parts unknown. Leaving all his belongings behind, he hopped a freighter across the Indian Ocean and wandered into the Bangladesh wilderness. His journey, which lasted over a decade, took him through Nepal and Tibet where his exploration turned spiritual and into rural China where months of solitude resulted in some of the most confessional observations ever committed to paper. O, Unknown! is a meditative, smoky iris that will enrapture iris lovers and win the note many new fans. Notes include black tea, lapsang souchong tincture, orris butter, Kyoto moss, musk balsam, and sandalwood.
