Perfumer Josh Meyer has quite an imagination. Imaginary Authors Perfumes are true works of art, combining a story with a scent. It’s such a refreshing idea that is truly unique!
Notes in “The Soft Lawn” are: Linden(lime) Blossom, Laurel and Ivy leaves, Vetiver, Oakmoss, Fresh Tennis Balls and Clay Tennis Court.
I know, it sounds crazy, but believe me, it’s genius! You really can smell the fuzzy tennis balls, and the dry clay court.
The Soft lawn opens with green earthiness when it drops on my skin. I imagine I am smelling the oak moss and vetiver notes. Before I know it, it turns sweet and soft as my skin amps the Linden Blossom. I love how Linden Blossom smells on my skin. It’s floral, but not too floral, a little bit refreshing, and becomes a lovely skin scent.
The addition of freshly opened fuzzy tennis balls sounds like it would be an odd scent. Believe me when I tell you, it works!! Once the linden blossom retreats a bit, I get a hint of dry clay scent along with the scent of tennis balls. Genius!!
When all is said and done, I have the well blended scent of Linden Blossom, some dry clay from the tennis court, and an earthy, creamy woodiness from the oakmoss and vetiver. It lasts 5+ hours on my skin as well. What an amazing olfactory experience The Soft Lawn is! I am anxious to try more from Imaginary Authors perfumes!
Have you tried The Soft Lawn? Have you ever tried a perfume that had a note that sounded completely weird, and once you tried it you just “got” it? Leave your thoughts in the comments, as I always love to hear from you!
