There is great convenience in shopping online. And for those not fortunate to live in a major city there is a great connection the internet brings you to your favorite brand. But nothing replaces certain physical retail expereinces like the scent of a store. Unis has her own Le Labo candle. Supreme has Nag Champa incense. But my absolute favorite is R by 45rpm.
If you've ever walked by or wandered through an R by 45rpm store, I'm sure you've wondered, "what's that smell?" The homely and distinct scent is a definite takeaway and stays with you for days. Besides the cedar floors and kusu walls there's a beautiful mix of Santa Maria Novella potpourri and Shun-you incense by Shoyeido from Kyoto, Japan. Talking about scents on the internet is kind of silly but so is watching cooking shows on TV when you can't taste the food. Apparently I do both really well, but I also try my best to get off my ass the internet and experience the real thing.
