Each Imaginary Authors fragrance is inspired by a novel, and this one, Cape Heartache by Philip Sava, a love story of exploratory proportions. We are taken right into the woods with this scent, from the strawberry patch to the dewy morning in the pines. Do you want to wear that? Absolutely! This is handled in a way that is fresh and clean and yet has a quiet warmth that the vanilla brings in just at the end.
Cape Heartache is the lone American contribution to Philip Sava’s wildly popular series of exploration novels. It is based loosely on an expedition he made to the Pacific Northwest as a teenager in 1881 and is generally regarded as the most candid of his works. Revolving around a homestead he built in a coastal grove of old growth trees, the novel documents his romance with a young woman who was a descendent of the Nehalem Indian Tribe. It’s themes of leaving the familiar and finding comfort and solace in a new place still resonate today.
Notes: Douglas Fir, Pine Resin, Western Hemlock, Vanilla Leaf, Strawberry, Old Growth, Mountain Fog
