Created by the CEO of Marie Veronique Organics, this new line of all-natural, creamy perfume balms is designed for travel (they won’t spill or break in your bag). Each of the three herbaceous scents is designed to evoke a specific Californian locale, like acypress-and-citrus grove on the Pacific coast. tnbotanicals.com.
The brainchild of aromatherapist Persephenie Lea (trained by incense experts in India), this line of botanical products, from lip balm to perfume, taps into the health properties of scent. Lavender-rosemary smelling salts aim to relieve stress; sage incense infused with honey and red wine is meant for spiritual cleansing. persephenie.com.
