"There is no greater joy in the world than the joy of not knowing what is to be found around the bend."- Philip Sava
SYNOPSIS: At age 65, when famed explorer and author Philip Sava was given less than a year to live, he set off from his home in Madagascar for parts unknown. Leaving all his belongings behind, he set off on foot, hopped a freighter across the Indian Ocean, and wandered into the Bangladeshi wilderness. His journey, which lasted over a decade, took him through Nepal and Tibet where his exploration turned spiritual and into rural China where months of solitude resulted in some of the most confessional observations ever committed to paper. This is the story of a man grappling with the meaning of life as he grasps at life’s last vestiges.
WHEN TO WEAR THIS FRAGRANCE: At the risk of sounding bleak, this night could be your last. Splash on O, Unknown! and plunge forth into prosperity and joy. Repeat as often as you are able.

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.
