In this new release from Imaginary Authors, perfumer Josh Meyer takes has put together a beautiful rose-saffron elixir inspired by a fiction of his own making. That's the Imaginary Authors angle, and this time our invented writer is an American on a journey in India. "In 1980, Gwen K. Vroomen quit a monotonous job, went to the corner bar, and – on the bartender’s urging – threw a dart at a world map tacked on the wall. She had never heard of Goa but knew immediately she needed to go. Three months later she was celebrating Hindu New Year at a tea garden high in the hills of Kerala, fireworks exploding below. She wrote of that night: “I was resuscitated by color, redeemed by the vibrant unknown.” Her self-proclaimed 'Journey out of darkness,' dotted with unforgettable stories of night markets, river floats, and harrowing moped rides, inspired a generation of young Americans eager to buck the drudgery of ordinary life." Notes include saffron, rose absolute, leather, apple, benzoin, cashmeran, and Arpora Night Market.
