“Who needs love when there is still cognac in the glass?”
The early exploration writing of Philip Sava bent the limits of post-modern fiction, revealing fantastical worlds that fooled many into believing they were, in fact, real. Sava’s kaleidoscopic collections, of which Memoirs of a Trespasser is the undeniable centerpiece, drew upon true experiences from his exotic travels but were infused with a hallucinatory inventiveness that set his work apart from others in the genre.
Though Sava had associates all over the world, he spent most of his time living in solitude on a ranch in southern Madagascar. When interrogated by the press on his cloistered lifestyle he notoriously answered, “Who needs love when you have cognac?”
WHEN TO WEAR: A true adventure scent, wear Memoirs of a Trespasser when traveling, and again when you’re back home to conjure comforting memories.

This never quite gets there. The vanilla is sweet and not unpleasant, but buried under a strange flat paper smell that really dulls the vanilla and makes it thin and watery. It smells like a bucket of wet paper pulp with a drop of vanilla extract in it. I cannot see the point of this at all, especially given the price point, and especially given the wide array of beautiful, interesting vanilla indies available.
A dry, clay-heavy woody scent. I didn’t like this at first, but it quickly grew on me.
