Imaginary Authors has penned another scented story to add to its ever-growing library of smell-goods called In Love with Everything. Perfumer Josh Mayer is a keen visionary when it comes to interpreting words into scents, which I certainly appreciate.
“Written in 1982, this electrifying novel about sex, drugs, and decadence in pre-Miami Vice Florida, follows a delinquent clique of teenage girls through nightclubs, roller discos, and seedy South Beach bars in search of anything to keep the party going. Driven by an inexhaustible enthusiasm, the girls navigate a series of potentially dangerous situations with naive ease, radiating their infectious light like a disco ball and turning even the darkest circumstances into a dance party.
Lauded for its unflinchingly honest portrayal of strong, outspoken, resourceful young women whose sole motivation was to have a good time, the book stands in stark contrast to the male chauvinism of the era and still resonates today. Critics have called it “an essential examination of the joys of recklessness” and “an addictive story in which every sentence glistens with sticky sweet summer heat.”” – From the brand
In Love with Everything Notes:
Raspberry, Citrus Pulp, Coconut Palm Suga, Madame Isaac Pereire, Sandalwood, Tropical Punch, and Stardust.
The fragrance composes itself as what appears to be a fruity concoction that invokes both a fruity flavor, while being a magical source of optimism about life. Josh Mayer has included some interesting notes in this elixir, but that is par for the course when he is at the helm.
There are a few notes that I am unsure about in this one. The first one is the Madame Isaac Pereire. I saw it and was thinking it might be some sort of drink, but it’s actually a rose. As plants.ces.ncsu.edu claims, it has a deep raspberry scent to it. The other note is stardust, and this is undoubtedly one that Josh created, as he often does.
The 80s was a great time to be alive, and a fragrance that can rekindle that while staying within modern confines would be an absolute gem. I personally hope that the tropical punch smells like Hawaiian Punch Fruit Juicy Red. I doubt it will, but that is just me being nostalgic about my childhood.
Regardless of my random side thoughts, anything Imaginary Authors releases is worth nothing because you always know it’s going to be something new and exciting. I speak for us all when I say that I can’t wait to see what the brand has done with a playful scent. Now, if you will excuse me, Bon Jovi- “Livin’ on a Prayer” is calling my name.
