Fragrance design studio Joya and artist Camilla Engstrom—NYC neighbors—have collaborated on a candle for enhanced Zs. To avoid a common, on-the-nose traditional lavender scent, oak moss, smoky incense, cedar leaf and a hint of burnt sugar complement the main ingredient for a sophisticated, intricate fragrance. Within the series of three, choose which napping position (portrayed by Engstrom’s alter ego, Husa) you like best: back, side or front.
While pure Peruvian alpaca wool blankets can set you back $300+ easily, direct-to-consumer bedding obsessives Brooklinen have a slightly less expensive version that doesn’t sacrifice quality. The sumptuous, soft throw keeps warmth without the weight—you’ll be wrapping yourself in it year-round—and makes a reliable Netflix and chill partner.
Of course the actual fragrances of BYREDO’s new range of room sprays are the most important, but the oversized black glass bottles are so sophisticated that you’ll want to have it on display. Available in Bibliotheque, Cotton Poplin and Tree House, the perfumes are subtle but pretty. Our choice is Tree House, which has notes of bamboo, myrrh, leather and cedar. Price is in Euros.
With everything needed to start a matcha obsession, Ippodo’s matcha tea kit includes all items required for regular and consistent matcha-making. There’s a strainer, whisk, bamboo ladle, whisk stand and (of course) ceremonial-grade matcha, but the kit’s booklet might be the most important item as it offers guidance through the matcha preparation ritual.
Less formal, lighter and cooler (temperature-wise) than “hotel style” plush robes, this 100% Turkish cotton robe dries the body beautifully. Thanks to its woven waffle texture, it also feels like being wrapped up in a cloud. Parachute understands how hard it is to keep things white—especially if you’re a coffee drinker—and offers two different non-white colorways: tan or grey.
Hand-poured candles made from 80% vegetable wax and 20% paraffin, PHLUR’s newest addition not only offer delightful fragrances and a warm glow, they are also lovely design objects. Each candle sits inside a round, custom ceramic vessel (complete with a lid) that can be reused to store trinkets and tchotchkes. Our pick is the Claremont fragrance, which was adapted from one of our favorite perfumes from the brand—Olmsted & Vaux. It’s citrusy, without being acidic, and is cruelty- and paraben-free.
Purifying and hydrating, Hungarian brand Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary mist also smells divine. With notes of neroli and rose, this mist was inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water—the world’s first perfume on record. Made with mineral-rich water from Budapest, it’s refreshing and can also work as a post-cleanse toner.
Made for Mondays is Montreal-based Raised by Wolves’ “Fuck Off” collection. Perhaps the best item in the range, these printed slides tell it like it is. Available in several colorways, the blue and white is our pick.
Room shoes are Japanese home essentials and a tradition growing more common in the Western world. Crafted from Sasawashi fabric, these Osaka-made slippers from Rikumo absorb moisture (and odors) and won’t pill. Best of all, of course, they are comfortable to slip into after a long day.
Founded by Cutler Brooklyn’s Tyson Kennedy—the hairdresser who doesn’t look like a hairdresser, maybe due to his other life as a rock musician—the Fatboy styling line started with this creamy homemade putty that he created for his own hair. A casual, effortless look comes easily, with equally nonchalant packaging. Fatboy has recently added a shampoo and conditioner set to their roster, too.
Carefully bush-dyed by Anindilyakwa women living in the remote Groote Eylandt Archipelago—an island in the Gulf of Carpentaria, about 391 miles from Darwin—each North Home robe is unique. The process is one full of rich history and creativity—using native roots, leaves, bark and berries to color the 100% silk pieces. Best of all, the company channels all profits from sales directly back into the organization in order to continue relationships with indigenous art centers and communities, contributing to their financial gain. Price is in AUD.
Available in four different (but equally cheery) colorways, Verloop’s “Borders” colorblock knitted throw is ideal for autumn’s transitional weather. Complete with handmade pom-poms at the corners, the blanket has a playful edge, but it’s certainly at home in an adult house.
Unlike alcohol-based wipes that remove make-up but clog the environment, Face Halo is a reusable pad that utilizes microfiber technology and water to get your skin squeaky clean. The ultra-fine fibers are specially engineered to lift impurities while gently exfoliating your face, and you can toss the dirty pad into the washing machine up to 200 times before finally throwing it away—it’s better for you and the earth.
A Japanese-inspired floral pattern punches up these Supima cotton American Trench dress socks. Extra long staple Supima cotton, grown in the US and woven in Georgia, was ultimately knit into these mid-calf items in Pennsylvania. With flowers in blossom, it makes sense to also wear them on your feet.
Designed by Montreal-based illustrator Olivia Mew, this long-sleeve T-shirt looks like it’s simply emblazoned with a heart and a teardrop at first glance. Look closer, and you’ll see the words “Stay Home Club.” Made from 50/50 ringspun cotton and poly-fleece, it’s manufactured and printed in Canada, and is a cute way to wear your anti-social/introverted club membership with pride.
Multi-talented Mark Gonzales has just released a bunch of prints, apparel and accessories—our pick is the colorful giclée print “Jacobs.” Featuring Gonzales’ familiar winged creatures, this print is bold and charming. Printed on archival paper, it measures 18 by 18 inches.
