Ten years ago per­fumer Sherri Se­bas­tian was hav­ing what she calls an eat Pray

Love mo­ment in Belize. Much like that book’s au­thor, El­iz­a­beth Gil­bert, she met a healer in paradise who told her to put clary sage oil on her pil­low at night if she wanted col­or­ful, vivid dreams. All of a sud­den, Se­bas­tian says, “I stopped thinking about sleep­ing and looked for­ward to dream­ing.” Us­ing fra­grance to shift one’s per­spec­tive was on her mind when she cre­ated her new line, Pro­vi­sion, which in­cludes Dream Ex­tract, a room and linen spray built around fresh, herba­ceous clary sage. Per­fum­ing bed sheets may seem a tad in­dul­gent, but it can be func­tional as well: This Works Sleep Plus Pil­low Spray con­tains mo­tion­ac­ti­vated mol­e­cules with a calm­ing chamomile, laven­der, and ve­tiver scent that is re­leased when you start toss­ing and turn­ing. Less util­i­tar­ian but no less de­sir­able are mood-set­ting room and linen sprays like Dip­tyque’s Eau Dominotée, which con­tains patchouli to help it ad­here to tex­tiles; and L’Ob­jet’s Côté Maquis, an evoca­tive, beachy mix of salt air and in­cense.
