Are the latest beauty and wellness products worthy of a spot in your teensy carry-on? T+L Associate Editor Kathryn O’Shea-Evans shares her take.
The Product: Hermès Jour d'Hermès Eau de Parfum, $149.
Pros: Jean Claude Ellena, exclusive perfumer for Hermès and author of the recent The Diary of a Nose: A Year in the Life of a Parfumeur (Rizzoli), has infused their latest scent with floral notes—including gardenia and sweet pea. When I wear it I feel instantly transported: like I’m taking a late spring walk through the garden at Giverny, my paint set in one hand and a picnic in the other. It's heaven!
Cons: The bottle is gorgeous, but a bit heavy for a carry-on (I guess that's what atomizers are for).
