7 Unconventionally-Scented Products That Actually Smell Amazing
Care to take your floral scent with a side of vodka? Blending unconventional notes like mint, pepper, and even beet root into their formulas, these body and home fragrances are just as weird as they are wonderful. We put together a list of 7 scented products with some of the most unexpected elements out there. Shop each of them below!
NEST Moss and Mint Reed Diffuser
Imagine the dreamy aroma that comes from a freshly-picked mint leaf on the most perfect spring day—likely April 25, where it's not too hot, not too cold, and all you need is a light jacket. That's pretty much what you'll get out of this oakmoss-based blend, which balances the heady element with notes of apple blossom, vetiver, and of course, mint.
The Cottage Greenhouse Sugar Beet and Blossom Body Wash
More blossom, less beet—though the rooted vegetable does add a pretty sublime earthy quality to the otherwise feminine blend.
Maison Martin Margiela Lipstick On
Fun fact—many lipsticks are scented with iris notes, which is why you get a whiff of a slight floral aroma when you swipe on your signature shade. Margiela built this fragrance upon the idea of a crimson red pout, and added notes of rice powder, vanilla bourbon, and tonka bean into the mix.
Jonathan Adler Vodka Pop Candle
A far cry from the cranberrry-infused cocktail you once spilled down the front of your shirt, this light, airy mix of musk, bamboo water, and lime evokes more of a Mad Men vibe over mad nights spent at the college bar.
Etat Libre D'Orange Fat Electrician
We're not sure what anything about this scent has to do with an electrician, but the blend of vanilla, vetiver, and olive leaf is certainly unlike the rest of the fragrances in our arsenal.
Kalastyle Swedish Dream Sea Salt Soap
Saying the product's full name five times fast is a pretty tall order, but the light aquatic elements in this bar soap are surprisingly uncomplicated.
Rive Droite Artist Atelier Pink Pepper Bar Soap
The pepper note brings an intensity for sure, but the contrast of floral notes prevent it from getting too severe.
