Pack Your Bags: The Scent of Departure

Perhaps your departure is usually the wrong kind of fragrance (stale cabin air and microwaved food) — but The Scent Of Departure is better than that. TSoD knows you miss Abu Dhabi, Toyko and Bali before you even set foot on your return flight, so they kindly captured the essence of these major destinations in perfume for you. London/LHR will remind you of strolls through Hyde Park with its notes of moss, jasmine and bergamot. Istanbul/IST is a cross between the pink peppers at the spice market and the sweet lokum stuck in your teeth. And LAX transports you straight to the Cali coast with the bright scents of grapefruit, gardenia and amber. Best of all, the $45 price tag will still leave plenty of room in your suitcase for extra souvenirs.
