Imaginary Authors Fox in the Flowerbed was released in 2021, created by Josh Meyer. It has notes of jasmine, tulips, frankincense, wildflower honey, pink peppercorns, silver thistle and alpine air.
All of the Imaginary Authors have a story that accompanies them. Here is the story of Fox in the Flowerbed from the Imaginary Authors website:
"Rescued from obscurity by students who tracked down the reclusive author at a remote cabin in the Austrian Alps, this collection of alpine fairy tales marks the return of enigmatic writer, Chunhua Luli. The main characters in these stories are wild animals but the tender lessons they impart cut straight to the heart of the human condition. In the titular story, a young fox becomes obsessed with a butterfly, only to learn the hazards of infatuation. Other themes explored include the advantages of unflagging ambition, the importance and impact of beautiful objects, the pursuit of serenity, and the power of positive thinking. Forty years after her remarkable debut, Luli once again reminds us we are all animals, connected by an expansive and ever-changing ecosystem much larger than ourselves."
Imaginary Authors Fox in the Flowerbed is an eau de parfum, edp.
Fragrantica - "This is a beautiful gentle white floral — predominantly jasmine — scent. At first spritz, it reminded me of the Alien flankers, I'd say it's like 50% Alien Eau Extraordinaire, 50% Flora Futura. Then, the soft honey note came through! It's really beautiful, not overly sweet, more like an aromatic, natural-smelling dark honey — mixed with the herbal silver thistle smell... Soapy-fresh notes (Alpine air, if you're fancy) in the background throughout. Jasmine soap, wildflower meadow and ethereal honey. I don't pick on the tulip notes, unfortunately. I can get some frankincense (if I try real hard, I get something woodsy/resinous in the background, or maybe it's just my imagination — some more frankincense would've been nice)."
Fragrantica - "The opening blast of Jasmine is so real and intense then moves to the back seat for some Tulip with its spicy almost saffron like scent, it intermingles with the Frankincense you’ll feel a very fresh and clean scent. As this begins to warm up with your true scent the wildflower honey sweetens it up a bit, Absolutely the best use of Pink Peppercorn to date, meshing with the dry grassy Thistle. All of the notes get some playtime while in the end all meshing together and mixing with your chemistry making a truly remarkable and long lasting experience."
Fragrantica - "ovely, lush jasmine in the opening gives way as this dries down to honey and pink peppercorn. The mountain air is kind of an atmosphere--closing my eyes I don't so much smell it directly as perceive it as the background for the other notes to mix in. I honestly don't know what tulip smells like in perfume, but when I think about times I've smelled actual tulips I remember a kind of green, slightly waxy smell, which I think I can detect here. It really is a lovely fragrance. "
