Imaginary Authors: Memoirs of a Trespasser $95 for 50ml


Memoirs of a Trespasser is an artfully crafted candy for the nose. Sweet, yet sultry – layered with mystery and intrigue as the scent morphs throughout the day, taking you on a rollercoaster of twists and turns. Close your eyes and the ambrette seeds and rich woods stand tall and paint images of James Bond, relaxing in his study, hidden behind a floor to ceiling antique bookshelf. Laid back, yet provocative with the Madagascar vanilla leaping out and drawing in noses like a tractor beam. Memoirs of a Trespasser captivates your attention with a mere whisper. Keep the secret to yourself and enjoy a symphony of delightful scents that morph and come alive throughout the day. Pull someone in close and Memoirs of a Trespasser will take control, enchanting your target to helplessly bend to your every whim. Agent provocateur in a bottle.

Also worth a mention is Imaginary Authors superb, yet overwhelming concoction, Bulls Blood – wB&B Awards imaginary author 3hich literally jumps out of the bottle and hits you like a raging bull. I’m sure you’ve read statements like this before “hits you like a freight train” etc, etc so you’ve grown accustomed to dialing the rhetoric back a bit, but in this instance, take it at face value. You’ve been warned.


Bull’s Blood isn’t mysterious, nor is it laid back. It’s a bold, musky, brazen head-butt to the nose. It’s rude and unapologetic and laughs at social norms. Don’t like the scent? Well F*** off, it doesn’t care – Bull’s Blood is loud, proud and in your face, something Steve McQueen might have worn. Walk into a room, and everyone will know you’ve arrived. While I’m normally put off by scents of this nature, it somehow seems to work. Put it on, and you’ll likely hate it… but an hour or two later, it will grow on you. By the end of the day, you’ll respect it and call on it when the occasion calls for a power scent. Definitely try a sample of this one first as few men have what it takes to wear Bull’s Blood. For most, Bull’s Blood will wear them.

  1. Unique and exclusive.
  2. Beautifully balanced, superb quality perfume strength oils.
  3. Complex scent that morphs throughout the day.


  1. They don’t even come with an outer box, merely the bare bottle.
  2. The two I purchased from a retailer were of the old style bottles in the pictures above, and the labels are cheap and unimpressive, and the bottles are ho-hum. They have recently come out with new bottles and labels however, which I have personally seen, and are much nicer.
  3. Not carried by many retailers, and few in-store locations, so you must order a sample kit to experience them.

Imaginary Authors is this year’s winner due to the quality of the fragrances and the uniqueness of their scents. While no scent is for everyone, rest assured there is at least one in their line that will capture and inspire your interest. Dare to be different.
