About Every Storm a Serenade

Each Imaginary Authors fragrances come with a backstory. Every Storm a Serenade is:

When Stina, a burgeoning writer, decamps to her mother’s summer house for the winter to write a book, her trip overlaps for one day (and one steamy night) with a brawny fisherman named Ulv. While she struggles to gain traction with her novel, her fixation on the mysterious seafarer results in countless unsent letters, the contents of which chronicle the spiraling psyche of lust and longing. Set on the desolate west coast of Denmark during the tourist off-season, Every Storm a Serenade is a meditative masterwork that will lull you with its well-designed sentences and intimate tone.

Reviews of Every Storm a Serenade

"Baltic sea mist" lol.
Its a light salty aquatic with an underpinning of pine and smoky vetiver. Pretty airy. I may be anosmic to some of it, or i just prefer a little more junk in the trunk. Neutral.

I get nothing from this apart from a vague and totally nondescript odour with no relation to what others are perceiving. Either it is a total con or my nose is blind to the odorants. Presumably the latter and I only report on it in case others have the same problem.

From February, 2016:

More or less exactly what you'd expect from the description and note pyramid. Half of ESAS is sort of smoky, spruce and fir fragrance and the other is a moderately salty aquatic with a big, though completely pleasant dose of calone. The two halves work well together and for someone who likes both aquatics and conifers, I certainly don't mind this. The calone note gives it a breezy, marine appeal and the woods help to anchor it in the base. The dry down is a subdued vetiver and salty ambergris note that stays close to the skin. Projection is average to slightly above average for the first couple of hours. Overall longevity is around 7 hours. Every Storm has a casual, day-time feel and carves out its own niche as a very good winter aquatic option. This is probably my favorite from the Imaginary Authors line next to Memoirs of a Trespasser. While it's not necessarily complex, it smells good, offers a new concept, and it's easy to wear. Thumbs up for Imaginary Authors' latest release. I'd probably rate it a 8/10 or 8.5/10. Good stuff.

For me, the ozonic/fresh and oceanic component dominates. I don't get much in the way of conifers or vetiver. Definitely a salty tang here though, reminiscent of ambergris (in a mild synthetic way). Pleasant, but it does not wow me.

Once you spray Every Storm A Serenade, the first thing you notice is the sharpness of the eucalyptus, then the vetiver emerges. The vetiver is trying to be subtle, but vetiver can never go unnoticed. As the earthy&green notes mellow and fade, the Ozonic & Marine notes emerge and sweeten in time.

Every Storm A Serenade has a fascinating idea of a perfume, it's the fragrance of A Storm's Serenade, but the actual fragrance is a novelty. I like this fragrance because it did deliver as a novelty. If you were looking for something lasting and has layers of complexity then you will be disappointed.

Imaginary Authors is a very interesting niche fragrance house where each fragrance comes in a box shaped like a book and is based on a short story. Every Storm a Serenade is about a short story relating to a fisherman, and set in the desolate west coast of Denmark. As for the scent, it's basically a far weaker version of Encre Noire by Lalique to my nose. For me it's dominated by the note of vetiver; I can't really smell anything else, and am kind of disappointed as I expected a stronger eucalyptus and fir/spruce note. There is nothing aquatic about it either. Penhaligon's Blasted Heath and Tom Ford's Oud Minerale are far better options for realistic marine scents (or even Bvlgari's Aqva pour Homme). Disappointment.
