A look at the ingredients in shaving soap and shaving cream and how they affect the performance of the product.
Imaginary Authors is a perfume house started by Josh Meyer about 5 years back. The inspiration behind this operation was Josh’s view of scents and perfumery as art. This led him to create a fragrance house whose image and persona was born out of careful deliberation from start to finish.
As you dive into the world of wet shaving, you have probably noticed that there are more details than you ever imaged. While this is a return to a simple, age-old ritual of blade, soap, & brush, it is also so much more. You can get lost in the nuances in fragrance, preferences for hair grade, and even judgements on which piece of steel is “just right”. So it might not surprise you to learn that even the shape of the bottles is given intense scrutiny and planning.
The imaginative, artful fragrances from Imaginary Authors have completely captured us - from the unique, creative aromas to the fun, inspiring novel descriptions that help tell the "story” of each scent. In our next installment of our "Hands Behind the Art" series on our blog, we interview Josh Meyer, the innovative perfumer behind these fragrances and give you a peek at the nose behind this cool company.
Back in the day (before triple venti no foam lattes and cloud computing), things were simple, and simple worked well.

So, it is no wonder that our modern age is longing to rediscover wet shaving.
