Slow Explosions

eau de parfum

Description

A delightful rosy leather fragrance. 

Slow Explosions opens fruity without being sweet, cheerful and soft because of the apple note created by the saffron CO2 essential oil. Soon this fragrance develops into a delicious suede leather and rose fragrance. One could say that is is a modern take on Oud Silk Mood by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, where oudh is replaced suede. 

I was lost, aimless, and depressed. Now I’m only two of those things.” – Gwen K. Vroomen 

Inspiration Imaginary Authors:
In 1980, Gwen K. Vroomen quit a monotonous job, went to the corner bar, and – on the bartender’s urging – threw a dart at a world map tacked on the wall. She had never heard of Goa but knew immediately she needed to go. Three months later she was celebrating Hindu New Year at a tea garden high in the hills of Kerala, fireworks exploding below. She wrote of that night: “I was resuscitated by color, redeemed by the vibrant unknown.” Her self-proclaimed “Journey out of darkness,” dotted with unforgettable stories of night markets, river floats, and harrowing moped rides, inspired a generation of young Americans eager to buck the drudgery of ordinary life.

When to wear:
"With pops of rose and hits of saffron, this scent explodes on the skin and awakens the senses. Every inhale will open you up to the idea of escape, push you to take risks, and embolden you to get truly lost. Let us know how it goes."

I was lost, aimless, and depressed. Now I’m only two of those things.” – Gwen K. Vroomen

Imaginary Authors

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.
