I just received my package of radness from Quarterly Co. What a fun way to subscribe to your favorite tastemakers! They have curators from food, home, tech, fashion and beauty. It's like getting a present in the mail every three months and you get to discover new brands along the way. I'm hoping I get to curate a package of sweet home stuff for you all! Packed in this GQ box are some sexy scents I wasn't familiar with.
Santa Maria Novella is one of the world's oldest apothecaries dating back to 1221 and now they have a few stores in the US. I was initially stumped by these scented papers. They smelled great but what to do with them? Were they just scented samples? After reading about them, they're basically paper incense that were popular in the 16th century. Amazing. I lit one up and it lasts about five minutes and my place smelled great.
Another brand I was intrigued by was Fulton and Roark's solid cologne. I was immediately drawn to the fresh and light, spicy scent. They're pocket-size so they're like mints for your bod. Perfect for dates!
A little more about Quarterly Co. —
"Quarterly is a new way to connect with the people you follow and find interesting. We spend so much of our lives connecting with people online that we forget the value of tangible interactions that happen in the real world. Quarterly wants to bridge that gap by allowing anyone to subscribe to influential curators and receive physical items in the mail from them. It’s like a magazine, but instead of receiving words on a page, our subscribers receive actual items that tell a compelling story crafted by the curator."
