    The Nose Will Travel

    My favorite scents are the ones that transport me somewhere: One whiff of fresh-cut grass and I’m relaxing in my backyard; a sniff of pine and I’m hiking in the Berkshires. David Moltz of D.S. & Durga knows where I’m coming from—he was so inspired by a visit to Scotland and Ireland last year that he created a trio called Hylnds (above, $180, barneys.com). “I’m always searching out new aromatic materials, and on this trip, I got some amazing ones: poplar bud, black pine, fir balsam,” says Moltz, who channeled W.B. Yeats when it came to naming his concoctions: Pale Grey Mountain, Small Black Lake is a damp, woodsy beech-wood-and-heather blend with a “roasted seashell” note; Isle Ryder mixes jasmine and spruce. And Bitter Rose, Broken Spear smells like a bonfire—which makes me happy wherever I am.

    Sacre Bleu

    My idea of a French manicure? Iridescent blues from Dior and Chanel. Dior’s polish duo Samba (above left, $29, dior.com) pairs a creamy mint with a hologram-esque teal. Chanel’s Azure (above right and top, $27, chanel.com) shimmers in a deep marine hue.

    Rooting Around

    Hair color, in my opinion, is both an art and a science­, something one shouldn’t really mess with at home. (Operative word: mess.) But when I can’t get in to see my professional of choice—Gina Gilbert at the Serge Normant at John Frieda salon—I prettify my part with one of two no-commitment gray-concealing products. Color Wow Root Cover Up (shown, $35, ulta.com) looks like a cake of eye shadow and is just as easy to apply. TouchBack marker ($30, touchbackgray.com) works like a pen and comes in eight shades.

    Beach Box

    Socialite–cum–fashion designer Alexandra Lind Rose dreamed up this chic clutch for her longtime friend Valerie McMurray, the founder of Soleil Organique. It contains five travel-size versions of Soleil’s newly reformulated mineral-based sunscreens (below, right, $395, soleilorganique.com; and at the Spa Botánico at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, below, left).

    Napoleon Complexion

    The secret ingredient in Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot BBB Cream (left and below, $45, bergdorfgoodman.com)? Snail mucus. Having read about the substance’s wound-healing effects, Perdis mixed it with blueberry- seed oil, green tea extract, and algae minerals to create his Beauty Boosting Balm, which packs broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen. And no, it’s not the least bit slimy.

    It’s Always 3 p.m. Somewhere

    Snacking is very important to me, so I’m often on the lookout for healthy options. I’m loving the BluePrint Bars from BluePrint Cleanse (left, $3 each, wholefoodsmarket.com for stores), which come in four dried-fruit-and-nut versions. And a friend turned me on to Mariko’s Protein Poppers (from $12, marikosproteinpoppers.com). The flaxseed, whey protein, peanut, wheat germ, and honey balls taste like a spa version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. And unlike when I have the real thing, I feel truly satisfied after eating just one of these.
