A gourmand with a green twist.
Inspiration Imaginary Authors: "Cape Heartache is the lone American contribution to Philip Sava’s wildly popular series of exploration novels. It is based loosely on an expedition he made to the Pacific Northwest as a teenager in 1881 and is generally regarded as the most candid of his works. Revolving around a homestead he built in a coastal grove of old growth trees, the novel documents his romance with a young woman who was a descendent of the Nehalem Indian Tribe. It’s themes of leaving the familiar and finding comfort and solace in a new place still resonate today."
WHEN TO WEAR: For any new adventure including, but not limited to, beach bonfires, first dates, party crashing, or simply barhopping alone on a rainy night. Like a scarf, wear Cape Heartache in the fall and winter and observe how people gravitate to your warmth.
“If you are looking for the pieces of a broken heart, you might try rifling through the twigs and needles on the forest floor.” - Philip Sava
The stories about the fragrances from Imaginary Authors are pieces of art in themselves. Compelling, with the necessary drama, romance, and plot twists the stories exist parallel to the perfumes.
Although perfumer Josh Meyer makes the scents first, after which he and his creative director Ashod Simonian form the texts, letting themselves be inspired by the stories the fragrances and ingredients tell them. The fresh presentation of the brand with their playful ingredient lists, such as 'first kiss' in Sundrunk.
The brand was born from the idea of scent as art and art as provocation. Like a good book, these scents are meant to inspire you. In the bottles, layered stories are ready to start dreamy conversations or transport one to new places. They are fragrances to curl up with on the sofa, to share with friends, to take with you on a journey and hopefully they create their own story in your life.
