Indie brand Imaginary Authors has launched A City On Fire, a new fragrance for men created for Machus in Portland, Oregon. Like the others in the line, it was inspired by an imaginary book by an imaginary author.
A brilliantly dark graphic novel, A City On Fire, is the story of two match-makers. (Rupert) literally fabricates matches in a factory on the waterfront while (Frances) writes a dating column for the city's newspaper. Both are recluses who haunt the night's shadows observing clandestine activities from afar but never partaking. That changes one fortuitous evening when they are both witness to the same high-profile murder and are forced to come together as an unlikely vigilante pair in order to save their own names.
Imaginary Authors developed this fragrance exclusively for Machus, a modern menswear retailer focused on forward concepts and clean classics in Portland's lower Burnside neighborhood.
WHEN TO WEAR: The refined smoke accord makes this an austere and luxurious scent for evenings on the town, whether with a special someone or alone and looking for trouble.
The notes include cade oil, spikenard, cardamom, clearwood, dark berries, labdanum and burnt match.
Imaginary Authors A City On Fire is available in 30 ($55) or 60 ($85) ml Eau de Parfum.
