Scents good enough to eat. –Angela Bobo
L’Artisan Parfumeur Bois Farine Eau de Toilette, $145/3.4 oz.
If the holidays conjure fond memories of laughing with family members around a table wafting with delicious aromas, this quirky fragrance is a must-try. Described as a mix of woods and baking bread, the scent captures the warmth of a crumb cake fresh out of the oven served in the middle of a log cabin on a cold winter night.
Demeter Black Pepper Cologne Spray,$39.50/4 oz.
For those who love to cook, this smells exactly like ground peppercorn, so wear this fragrance as you would use the ingredient in a recipe, mingling with other notes to create a distinct flavor. Add spice and mystery by layering it over floral fragrances or use it to tone down and add depth to overly sweet options.
Aftelier Perfumes Cacao Liquid Perfume,$170/.25 oz.
As the name suggests, this perfume has a base of cocoa beans expertly blended by renowned perfumier Mandy Aftel with Tahitian vanilla beans for a scent reminiscent of a gourmet chocolate-vanilla swirl. Heralded for its complex and seemingly disparate notes, the scent then travels towards citrus with a lush jasmine, tinged with notes of blood orange and pink grapefruit.
