Korres provides yet another reason to appreciate Greece with a line of refreshing, hydrating, vitamin-infused body sprays in fresh fragrances such as coriander, nutmeg, vanilla cinnamon, cedar, mint tea, basil lemon and citrus. The Fig Body Butter from Korres smells as green as grass and softens skin, and the Korres Fig Shower Gel imparts the delicate aroma of fresh figs to your bath and skin. No worries about harsh chemicals or mystery ingredients! Visit www.korres.com or Sephora stores.

Dr. Hauschka’s holistic body oils are an ideal way to wear fragrance and benefit your skin at the same time. The calming scent of St. Johnswort flower inspires a peaceful demeanor and soothes the skin; this fragrance is reminiscent of blooms at the height of summer. The equally fragrant Rosemary body oil aids with circulation, warms the skin, and provides assistance with red blotches. For a glimpse of the full line of body oils and other Dr. Hauschka products, visit www.drhauschka.com. Your skin will blossom – naturally.

Pangea Organics’ ecocentric toning spritzers are nurturing and aromatic, and come in containers with herb seeds that can be planted in your garden. Soak the container in water for one minute, plant it, wait for your fresh herbs to appear, then make yourself a salad. With fragrances such as Italian Green Mandarin with Sweet Lime and French Rosemary with Sweet Orange, you’ll be able to regenerate, clarify your skin, cool and energize with just a spritzes throughout the day. This sweet and gentle line is kind to your skin. Visit www.pangeaorganics.com.

Diptyque from Paris captures the essence of nature’s most luxurious fragrances in candle form. Fill your rooms with evocative scents like laurel, quince, fig, sweet pea, lime tree, verbena, newly-mown hay, garden mint, honey and cedar. The Diptyque founders pride themselves on the integrity, carefully selected essences, purity, elegance and style of their products. Visit www.diptyqueparis.com to see their complete line of unique fragrances and candles, or visit Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman or Neiman Marcus stores. Designer John Galliano also crafted his own eponymous scented candle for Diptyque without using a single flower, and it’s well worth sniffing out.
