Favorite Scent-Related Discoveries Of The Moment
Left: Mustela Musti ($29) is basically baby perfume (a paraben-free, alcohol-free, hypoallergenic, super-mild floral scent), which is, ok, sort of (very?) weird (although exactly the kind of “weird” that I can get on board with)…but it is so beautiful that chances are it’ll be spending just as much time on my skin as it will on our baby’s. I picked up a bottle on Saturday morning (after weeks of hemming and hawing over the stuff due to aforementioned weirdness), and ended up wearing it myself all weekend. For real. Even though you have to get up close and personal to smell it at all…that’s sort of the point, right?
Right: Caldrea is a great brand generally (I love their kitchen countertop cleaners and liquid hand soaps), but the Sweet Pea Room Freshener ($14) is something special. It’s like clean linen with the tiniest hint of sweetness, and the kind of thing that you could use to freshen up your place before guests arrive without worrying that anyone might find the scent offensive. Because there’s just no way they could. You know how everyone likes Febreze? This is like that, minus any unfortunate associations with commercials involving floor-sniffing.
