Each Imaginary Authors fragrance is inspired by a novel, and this one, The Soft Lawn by Claude LeCoq, is a classic story of ego taking over and eventually coming back to take everything, this time from a young tennis star. Do you smell the grass court of the story? We do!
Claude LeCoq published his first book, The Soft Lawn, in 1916 while still attending Princeton University. A controversial portrait of adolescent upper-class rebellion in New England, the coming-of-age story follows Hampton Perry, a charmingly snotty college tennis champ who, after years of having everything handed to him on a silver platter, finds himself handing it all back.
A little known fact about the author: Claude LeCoq wore only seersucker suits, known in that era as the wardrobe of the poor, and it was his gallant presence at high society dinners and prestigious sporting events that brought the fabric into popularity among the affluent in the ’20s.
