Perfumer Josh Meyer has quite an imagination. Imaginary Authors Perfumes are true works of art, combining a story with a scent. Itâ€™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, itâ€™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. Itâ€™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!
