Imaginary Authors Soft Lawn was released in 2012, created by Josh Meyer. it was updated in 2021 with the same notes, but the green of the lawn was smoothed out and softer, making it more wearable on a daily basis. Notes of Linden blossom, laurel, ivy leaves, vetiver, oakmoss, fresh tennis balls, clay court.
All of the Imaginary Authors have a story that accompanies them. Here is the story of Soft Lawn from the Imaginary Authors website: Claude LeCoq published his first book, The Soft Lawn, in 1916 while still attending Princeton University. A controversial portrait of adolescent upper-class rebellion in New England, the coming-of-age story follows Hampton Perry, a charmingly snotty college tennis champ who, after years of having everything handed to him on a silver platter, finds himself handing it all back.
A little known fact about the author: Claude LeCoq wore only seersucker suits, known in that era as the wardrobe of the poor, and it was his gallant presence at high society dinners and prestigious sporting events that brought the fabric into popularity among the affluent in the ’20s.
Imaginary Authors Soft Lawn is an eau de parfum, edp.
Fragrantica - "This is a charming green fragrance, mostly with the honeyed sweetness of linden blossom (which may be the source for the dill-like scent a few people smell--though it is only a very faint part of the smell) and the richness of ivy, blending with the vetiver and the oakmoss. This is less like the smell of the tennis courts of the Ivy League than it is the wet lawns of the English countryside; it's a pretty, flowery green smell."
Fragrantica - "This is such a lovely, pleasant fragrance. Seems to capture the mellow, lackadaisical vibe of a Saturday afternoon. It's charming, effortless, and doesn't make any bold statements."
