Imaginary Authors is born from the concept of scent as art and art as provocation. Like a good book, these unisex perfumes are meant to inspire you. In these bottles are layered narratives that are sure to generate stirring conversation, fragrances that might be capable of changing the course of your own personal story. They not only invigorate and intoxicate, but also take you to new places. In addition to perfumes, we craft scented wax candles and exhilaratingly fragrant soap.

Each Imaginary Authors fragrance follows a compelling storyline peppered with intriguing twists. These are scents to curl up with, to share with friends, to take with you wherever you go, and to return to again and again for a uniquely transcendent experience.
