You cough, your eyes water, and you taste gasoline.
Is there a leak in the office? Nope, just Janet from accounting destroying your olfactories with her perfume.
Be a pal and get her something from Six Scents Series Two. The fragrance collection is a twist on celeb-endorsed swill — and pairs designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Toga, and Damir Doma with perfumers.
The results are subtle, limited-edition scents that people who hate perfume actually love. We’re partial to Smell, by Henry Holland and Stephan Nilson: It’s light, crisp, and barely there. For something earthier, Henrik Vibskov and Louise Turner’s Solar Donkey Power has bergamot, sage, and patchouli.
A portion of proceeds also goes toward Pro-Natura International’s environmental sustainability programs.
A much nicer way to pour it on thick.
