    The Soft Lawn

    by Imaginary Authors

    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.

    WHEN TO WEAR: A great leisure fragrance, wear The Soft Lawn on weekends...or anytime you wish it were the weekend.

    NOTES: Linden blossom, laurel & ivy leaves, vetiver, oakmoss, fresh tennis balls, clay court

    1. Name says it all 4 Star Review

      This scent is very earthy and, yes, resembles the smell of tennis balls. It's perfect for the woman who's not afraid to wear a challenging scent. I would say it would never be my every-day scent, but it's fun to wear on occasion.

    2. Tennis balls. Enough said. 5 Star Review

      The Soft Lawn is actually my favorite Imaginary Authors fragrance, next to Memoirs of a Trespasser. I love playing tennis and The Soft Lawn is sporty and really does smell like tennis balls, tennis courts, and brick buildings covered in ivy, with the creamy, slightly citrusy linden blossom and a hint of sporty cologne to it. It is the scent of gym class, somehow made into a really wearable, respectable cologne. It's one of those fragrances that just fascinates me.
