We love roll-on fragrance. A perfumed spritz (in the right hands, i.e. not the department store) is great, sure—and wearing a fragrance like you would wear jewelry is kind of ingenious—but there’s something so intimate about applying oils to your skin, about mixing and matching and absorbing a scent like that. So, when we encountered Ilary, a roll-on perfume that its Brooklyn-based creator Hillary Schneider calls an “elusive marriage of soft and feminine with clean and herbal,” well, color us intrigued. Turns out it’s the right blend of sweet, alluring, and plain ol' clean— a blend of sandalwood, musk, ebony wood, and orange blossom. (Bonus: if you're wary of buying fragrances online, you can get a $5 tester on the Ilary website before committing to the full $65 roll-on.) Post-roll, you're not “perfumed'... You just smell fresh in that rolling-around-in-fields-of-honeysuckle-and-jasmine way, and also: attractive . And that, my friends, is nothing to sniff at.
