THE NEW QUINTESSENTIAL QUI SUMMER SCENT: SU MA ACQUA DI SALE
For autumn and winter, we’re all for smoky, piney fragrances that suit the cold weather and gray skies. But come summer, why not embrace a lighter, brighter scent that actually smells like the season? Acqua di Sale, concocted by the Italian alchemists at Profumum Roma, smells like summer in a way that could offset any bout of seasonal affective disorder. The combination of cedar, salt, and seaweed—not the decaying or sushiwrap variety— gives the distinct olfactory impression of a perfect beach day, complete with faint sunburn and less faint buzz. Think of it as a sensory preview when you’re stuck in seaside traffic.
