A day on troubled ground
Of the fragrances of the house, this is for the first time one that comes across really strong. And multidimensional.
On paper, I still thought that something can not be right. Woody, resinous, creaky and deep the fragrance came along. The color is also incredibly dark.
Flowers are supposed to hide in it. On paper, not to my nose.
But how is this deep scent on my skin?

Initially, it comes across as very intense full of dry, deep red fruits that you would snack on in a lush garden. The air is clear, warm and pleasant. The flowers do not come typically floral, but all very resinous, dry, almost woody. One could almost think to have a kerosene in the nose.

The flowers warp with the time more and more in the background, only a pleasant, somehow green dryness and the full nose fruit remains.
The whole consistently over hours on a body-enveloping projection, not room-filling but also subconsciously perceivable.

For me definitely one of the more exciting fragrances of the house and tested by me just at the right time

Syrupy floral, delightfully unisex
The very latest release from Imaginary Authors is the limited edition Decisions, Decisions, and it’s a subtle, sultry, floral, sweet mix featuring tuberose and sarsaparilla, with supporting notes of labdanum, raspberry, geranium, jasmine sambac, and the imaginary note of sweet suspense.

There’s a syrupy quality to it, likely due to the sarsaparilla—vaguely boozy, even—that operates harmoniously with the florals and resins, fostering a rather seamless blend. It feels well-rounded, not audaciously loud but craftily put together, with restraint. And it’s not too sweet, but just the right amount of sweet to prevent the fragrance from being floral-dominant in a powdery or sharp way.

The “sweet and floral” summary means, for many, myself included, that it feels feminine-leaning, but it’s really unisex, enjoyable, and versatile, as it feels perfectly appropriate on a winter day but does not like seem like it would be out of place in warmer weather, either.

I like Decisions, Decisions as a different sort of offering from the last few, more subdued, subtle. The most recent releases—A Whiff of Wafflecone, Telegrama, Whispered Myths, and O, Unknown—have each been a bit louder, so I like the change of pace with this release, and I imagine others might, as well.

It is available at the standard pricing of $95 for 50ml (with a travel size of $38 for 14ml) and is sold directly via the IA website as well as great boutiques like Perfumology.
