ACQUA DI PARMA
Chinotto di Liguaria
If you’re not making it to Northern Italy this summer, Acqua di Parma’s newest fragrance will give you a sense of what you’re missing (think rugged mountains, white sand beaches and the citrusy scent of the rare chinotto fruit). Chinotto di Liguaria is a nod to the allure of a refreshing, sparkling foreign holiday and we’re already guilty of dosing ourselves in it.
ACQUA DI PARMA
Acqua Di Parma is taking us away again, although this time it’s a boy’s trip to Ancient Rome. Their new cologne, inspired by a journey on the Via Sacra, combines spicy nutmeg, orange blossom and the medicinal myrhh oil. Both charming and mystical, you can bet we’re all buying this for our mans.
Say what you will about Miami, the city is Florida’s answer to dopamine. Walk around South Beach, and its neon signs, ocean air and overpopulation of palm trees will have your endorphins buzzing. KILIAN went and bottled this feeling into two limited edition summer fragrances inspired by the sun, sin and style of Miami. LOVE THE WAY YOU TASTE is the ultimate night scent – think sweet and refreshing Mojito’s at sunset. LOVE THE WAY YOU FEEL celebrates beachside bodies with its warming and exotic scent. KILIAN captured the vintage Miami we all know and love.
Inspired by the nocturnal and passionate atmosphere of film noir in the 80’s, Nocturama has a sensual, almost animal dimension. When we heard it’s laced with Narcissus, a flower that only blooms at night, we couldn’t resist getting our hands on the bottle. If there is ever a scent that will coin you the mystery woman, Nocturama is it. Warning: highly addictive, so spray with caution.

REN CLEAN SKINCARE
Atlantic Kelp and Microalgae Anti-Fatigue Toning Body Oil
Over the past few years, beauty experts have realized that essential oils are the cure-all skincare product, but it can still be hard to find an oil that doesn’t leave you feeling greasy. Ren Clean Skincare’s new body oil feels light yet gives you that energetic "don’t mind me I just came from the gym" glow. Not to mention, it’s packed full of super nutrients that will naturally destress you. $50.00/100 ML, www.renskincare.com.
We won’t bore you with the scientific vocab that explains these two transformative creams, but know that when one of the world’s leading stem cell scientists creates a skincare brand, you’re going to want to get involved. Augustinas Bader’s first products, the Cream and Rich Cream, will bring your skin back to its youth by boosting cell function to repair damage and dramatically improve complexion.
BYREDO x OFF-WHITE ELEVATOR MUSIC COLLECTION
Throw Virgil Abloh’s brand on quite literally anything and it’s guaranteed to blow up. So we’re pretty excited about Off-White’s newest capsule collection with Byredo, “Elevator Music.” Debatably the most exciting thing about this collab is that it includes Off-White’s first and long-awaited perfume (as in you can now smell like the hype brand). The accessories, denim and ready to wear don’t disappoint either.
