City-Themed Fragrances by The Scent of Departure

Every girl has a favorite international city (or two or three or four), why not take her back to her beloved haunt with this clever line that capture places like New York, Berlin, Paris, and Singapore in the form of scent. I'm hoping to find London under the tree this year, which is evocative of Hyde Park's pines and leaves, warm Earl Grey tea, and "a romance of mossy woods and white musk for a final wink at the London Eye." Just like London itself, it sounds absolutely charming.$45 for 50ml at The Scent of Departure
