Indie brand Imaginary Authors has launched Whispered Myths. Like the other fragrances in the line, it was inspired by an imaginary book by an imaginary author.
When the long hours Azzam Issa pulls at his family’s bakery begin to interfere with his day-job as a security guard at The Louvre things turn bizarre. Angelic creatures move from one painting to the next and statues speak to him in cryptic whispers. The delusions are a nuisance and the the few hours of sleep he is afforded between jobs are no better; dominated by visits from ancient mariners and supernatural figures from worlds past. It isn’t until he begins to listen to these apparitions that he becomes truly unhinged. In the frantic search for the true identities of these lost souls Azzam discovers something far more remarkable, his own.
WHEN TO WEAR: This is a classic scent with deep historic undertones. It is long-lasting, bold, and artful. Wear it with reverence and appreciate your place in this big, crazy world.
The notes include natural Cambodian oud, cantaloupe, cedar, muskdana, honey and salvaged shipwreck.
Imaginary Authors Whispered Myths is available in 14 ($48) or 50 ($120) ml Eau de Parfum.
