Ordered a sample and this is just a hard pass. This smells like a savory meat loaf on my skin...and the sugar is like the syrup dip... It wears off eventually but not worth it for me.

A standout for me from Imaginary Authors' line. The bourbon stays a lovely constant beneath the sugar cube and crushed ice tone on my skin, and the mint allows things to stay fresh without dipping too much into the bourbon. It lasts several hours on my skin without the need to refresh, and the sillage is there but not over-powering. Personally I will be purchasing the full-sized bottle and wearing it consistantly.

5/5 for concept execution. I can't take a points off just because bourbon isn't *my* drink of choice. So fun.

This is nicely done. It's a little too sugary for me? But really nicely done, if you want to smell like a sexy mint julep this is for you.

There is something about Saint Julep which keeps me coming back for another noseful hearty sniff. The grisalva note gives it a...fabric softener sheet smell the same smell and feeling when your favorite shirt comes straight out of the dryer. The southern magnolia gives Saint Julep a tinge of almost lemony rose. I don't get any of the crushed ice accord at first, but it eventually comes around, although it could be completely in my mind. Does it truly smell like a mint julep over ice sipped while sitting under magnolia trees. Absolutely. Wonderfully executed.

Ordered the traveler size...very nice. Not terribly long lasting, but nice for summer. Then bought the full bottle and it has only the slightest hint of the scent in the traveler.. Very disappointed. I could probably take a bath in this stuff without it registering.

The juiciness up top fades out rather quickly, but the lovely mint-and-simple-syrup effect remains while a remarkably airy mineral-and-wood (bourbon) drydown slllloowwwwly comes into focus. My notes on this one include words like “restless,” and “weathered wood.” A fragrance that feels like a dream you had after the night you finally got around to reading Flannery O’Connor and realized you liked her.

This completely exceeded my expectations. I took this sample with me on vacation and I quickly realized it was one of the best summer scents I've ever experienced. The mint in this is unlike any other mint note i've smelled before. This mint note is dominant throughout the fragrance and smells of fresh mint leaves smacked to release the essential oils. The main reason I find this fragrance surprised me so much was how realistic to a real cocktail it was. In the first few hours after I spray, there's a sticky sugar note similar to that of simple syrup and also what seems to be a smell of ice or chill that is extraordinary. Finally, the fragrance dries down to a subtle bourbon note along with mint. Will purchase a full bottle soon.
