Making an entrance begins with a beautiful fragrance—one that’s sweet enough to create a lasting impression, but soft enough not to take control of the whole room.

We have an expansive collection that spans everything from sultry to sweet to musk. It’s about finding your signature and letting your scent speak for itself. We’ve gathered our staff favorites, and these top picks are sure to kick off the New Year in seriously memorable ways.

Nina Lee, Shipping Manager

Brigitte by TOCCA

“This is a classy scent, and stays on all day after just 2 or 3 sprays!”

Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy No. 6

“A unique scent that I was drawn to because it’s so warm and elegant. I have never smelled anything similar.”

Erika Vedaa, Creative Director

Tocca Cleopatra

“Seductive and sophisticated, I love the warmth and complexity of this scent.”

Katelyn Stefani, Customer Service Director

Sarah Horowitz Perfect Coconut Roll On Perfume Oil

“It really has a handle on my two favorite things in a scent: it’s very warm, but also manages to smell crisp and clean. The coconut and almond work well together.”

Tame Your Mane

Shop b-glowing.

It’s a new year, which means it’s a perfect time to try new things. Or, to adopt tried-and-true favorite from beauty experts. Yeah, we think the second one sounds like a great way to start the year, too!

For gorgeous hair, brushes, serums, shampoos, sprays, and so many others, can make a huge impact. We’ve compiled a few of our favorites that we think every beauty should have on hand to achieve the best hair…ever.

T3 Singlepass Whirl Curling Wand

“I curl my hair everyday because my hair has no body at all when it is straight. But when I curl my hair with this wand, my hair has much more volume! The curls are nice and a bit on the looser side so it creates beach wave curls. It's my favorite!” —Nina Lee

“This tames my very long, coarse hair to salon style in no time. I love the loose waves I get from this tool; the look is polished but seems effortless.” —Erika Vedaa, Creative Director

Mason Pearson Popular Brush

“I also love this brush. It's a classic tool that distributes the natural oils in your hair and gives a soft finish after styling.” —Erika Vedaa

Philip b Medium Round Brush

“It’s beautiful and functional. Great for blowouts as it’s made with natural boar bristles and distributes scalp oils evenly for shiny looking hair.” —Katelyn Stefani, Customer Service Director

4. Jouer Glisten Brightening Powder

I like this because it’s not too glittery, it just gives my cheek bones a nice subtle glow.” —Kayla, Brand Assistant

5. IT Cosmetics Hello Light Powder Illuminizer

Created by Yale School of Architecture designers, Jean and Oliver Pelle, the soap stones are handcrafted with all-natural, vegetable-based soap ingredients. They make beautiful bathroom displays, but they’re, of course, great for washing, too!

Each soap comes in a cotton drawstring bag, and they’re all hand cut in PELLE's Brooklyn studio. Available in seven gorgeous shades, you can also opt for the nugget size so you don’t have to choose between the colors.
