Indie brand Imaginary Authors has launched An Air of Despair, a new limited edition fragrance for Summer 2015. Like the others in the line, it was inspired by an imaginary book by an imaginary author.
When Vivian Gwyn's parents mysteriously disappear one month before her eighteenth birthday it foils an elaborate plan she had to kill them herself. In her search for clues as to their whereabouts she finds an elegant mink coat and a safe full of valuables in her mother's cedar closet. Keeping the coat but selling everything else, she embarks on a glamorous adventure that takes her from the small Tennessee town where she grew up to luxurious penthouses in Manhattan, runways in Milan, and finally the castle in Switzerland from which she learns she is a descendant. No expense is spared in Viv's valiant quest to shake the sadness that plagued her upbringing and she quickly learns it's not riches that bring happiness but happiness that brings riches.
The notes include cedar, saffron, musk and sadness.
Imaginary Authors An Air of Despair is available in 30 ml Eau de Parfum ($55).
