Saint Julep
On the outskirts of Clarksdale, Mississippi, at the end of a secluded dirt road sat a small ramshackle church. It was not a place of worship but rather where many went to seek refuge during impoverished times. Legend has it the structure was transported to the wild mint field by hand, hoisted on the shoulders of two dozen men. The outside remained simple and nondescript but the interior was aglow with pilfered neon signs, Christmas lights, and a jukebox donated by the sheriff’s son. It was a distinctly secular place where locals who knew where to find it could share moonshine, socialize, and dance their troubles away. They called their ramshackle juke joint Saint Julep and the oral histories compiled within paint a picture of that magical place where “the smiles was always free and salvation had the distinct smell of sweet mint.”

A piece of childhood in a bottle
Who would not like to be a child now and then? This carefree time without worries or fears. A time of creativity and bliss. Just enjoy every moment! Fun in a summer meadow. Eating a tasty ice cream. Or would you prefer sweets and confectionery? Yes, especially in these difficult times I often observe a longing for a carefree childhood
With Saint Julep, Imaginary Authors has created a fragrance that is capable of reviving this very period olfactorically. We have here a green-sweet scent. A combination that I have fallen for all too often. I smell the green meadow, fresh mint, ice cream and sweets and the scent also makes me think of cocktails, as it should. For me, however, these are rather non-alcoholic, fine and fruity desserts. In my eyes, this is a fragrance that catapults me straight back to childhood, in the middle of summer. I can't perceive any whisky. No alcohol at all. The grown-ups have a break from broadcasting with this sweetheart in my eyes. The stage belongs entirely to the little ones
The fair, the bag of jelly bears, almost everything that my colleagues here have noticed, I too can understand. However, the sweets are all served in the fresh air. Maybe in the open-air swimming pool on a carefree summer day?

Saint Julep is a piece of childhood filled in flacons. Unfortunately, after two hours it is almost imperceptible for my nose. Otherwise I would probably have weakened and ordered it already. I'm just not the sprayer. But I definitely haven't gotten rid of this dreamlike happy maker yet. I could imagine it for the summer very well.

Many thanks to Chizza for the sample. He sweetened my morning bike ride today and took me back from the grey of November 2020 to the midsummer of 1986.

Childhood Memories and the Golden Bear
Do you know the typical smell of a freshly opened bag of gold bears? That's how the scent smells. Sweet, fruity after all sorts of things, slightly powdery creamy and somewhat synthetic in the first breath.

These childhood memories...

This is how the fragrance smells for the first 3 hours, until it looks a bit more like its name-giving cocktail. Then the mint note is the only one that keeps the natural fruitiness away from the creamy wax kiln style.

Very tasty, very cuddly.

The shelf life is ok, better than you are partly claimed. May be about 5-7 hours depending on skin.

The Sillage is reservedly airy, but one is perceived quite positively with this Gummi Bear note. Lets go down after hour 3 but quite a bit and gets at the 5th skin near.

The bottle is IA typically simple but with a cool dreamy design. Qualitatively quite good and the spray fog is also good.

Green Voodoo Magic
Picture a wooden porch swing by a Louisiana bayou. It's the height of the summer season and the hot air is filled with the buzz of midges and grasshoppers. The only way to keep cool is by sipping the refreshing and intoxicating cold green juice of a mint julep. Here is where the similarities between the spirit and the fragrance begin. In both tumbler and flacon the green herb is fresh, sweet and covered in crushed ice, drenched in inebriating bourbon whiskey and sprinkled with sugar: an absolute feast for the nose and taste. There is a hint of tangerine zest and the subtle aroma of local southern magnolia too.

In our mental picture the sun quickly sets in the horizon and just as quickly this Saint Julep turns into a skin scent, slightly weak and short lived but retaining its voodoo magic when smelled up close. One may feel compelled to respray every few hours to allow this beautiful experience to continue as if mind-controlled by naughty playful fairies.

A fantastic little potion full of green, sweet, fresh and boozy Mississippi magic.

It starts fresh and green, mint with a citric tangerine, mixed with Bourbon. The drydown is a minty cotton-candy, sweet and slightly woody.

A unique and very fresh citric/green minty gourmand, balanced by a generous sweet boozy-woody base. Nice interplay between Bourbon and mint.

Really amazing scent, but almost no projection and poor longevity. Best for very hot days. For a boozy, mint alternative go Guerlain Homme.

Fresh sweet mint covered in crushed ice, drenched in inebriating bourbon whiskey and sprinkled with sugar: fleeting but absolutely magical.
