I try not to wash my (very dry) hair too often, but I hate the—let’s call it earthy—smell of hair head, if you know what I mean, and I fear dry shampoo because it can make your hair fall out. So I went crazy one day and bought this hair mist in my favorite scent, Portrait of a Lady. It’s a subtler version of the original perfume, and never overpowers. I can in no way justify the purchase of another bottle (I just recently ran out) but I feel like—knowing me as I do—I’ll probably go for it anyway, eventually.
These body wipes seem like the perfect solution to a new problem of mine: the fact that I’m all gross and sweaty after arriving at my destination if I traveled there by bike. They smell of peppermint and citrus, which sounds about as refreshing as it gets.
I’ve been in love with Fornasetti candles for a while now, and not just because of how gorgeous they are: some of them are scented in a fragrance they call Otto, which smells fabulously of thyme, lavender, and cedarwood, among other things. These days I burn their incense because it’s more economical (again, comparatively), but the last candle I bought was this one.
I rent a car every summer, and this year, for some reason, it smells a lot more like dog than other years. So I have been sorely tempted to go for this Diptique perfumed oval in their 34 scent (which is kind of floral and woody at the same time, but in a way that is excellent even if you typically hate florals) and hang it from the rearview mirror.
