Your New Personal Scent Assistant
NOSE CANDY

Your New Personal Scent Assistant

Of all the things to leave to chance, your smell (probably) shouldn’t be one. Instead, we’ve found you an online personal scent assistant who’ll help you choose your aroma based on your city, your clothes and your current desires. So you probably shouldn’t try this when you’re hungry for bacon.

30% Off Summer Gear at Confederacy
SALE-ING

30% Off Summer Gear at Confederacy

July: a time of barbecues, oceanside lounging and, above all, seersucker. Meeting all your seersucker needs: Confederacy’s online sale, where you can pick up a Steven Alan button-down or two and some pajamas from Band of Outsiders. For the grotto.

You: The Documentary
WHAT’S UP, DOC?

You: The Documentary

Your exploits are the stuff of legend—as in, undocumented. But no longer. Use this app, hang your iPhone around your neck (it’s safe, trust us) and it’ll take a picture every 30 seconds. The result: a time-lapse video of your day. And, of course, your first Oscar nomination.

The Hamptons in Salt Form
AT SEA

The Hamptons in Salt Form

You’ve imported the finest tequila from Mexico, mixed your own liqueur and chopped down a lime tree—all to make the perfect margarita. Naturally, you’ll want to line your glass with artisanal sea salts harvested off the coast of the Hamptons. And then, finally, you can drink it.
