If there's anywhere that feels more like the polar opposite of steaming, stinky hot Brooklyn streets than the rocky coastal forests of Maine, I certainly don't know about it. But I do know about Maine in the summer, and, really, once the temperature in Brooklyn inches toward 100 degrees and the humidity approaches 100%, there is nowhere else where I'd rather be transported. The next best thing to actually being in Maine, though, is wearing this perfume oil from Greenpoint-based MCMC Fragrances. Per the website, "Maine is inspired by a day spent on the island of North Haven off the coast of Maine, falling in love." The perfume contains "Bulgarian rose absolute, local clary sage, wild Somalian myrhh, and French seaweed absolute convey the fresh scents of sea, air, sun, pine, and the discovery of a perfect beach plum rose. Dries down into the musky scent of sensual skin coupled with sun-dried grass." Yes. Yes to all of that.
