Ditch the Spritz: 12 Cool New Ways to Smell Good (That Don’t Involve Perfume)

Surrounding yourself with scent should be a joyful experience—a chance to take a moment for yourself in an increasingly digitally demanding world. Perfume is a powerful thing; we process scents in the same part of the brain that we store memories, so a fragrance can instantly take us back in time.
