If you’re looking for a new fragrance to wear out on the town . . . to work . . . or just to pick up the kids from school, you wouldn’t ordinarily think of spraying yourself down with GIN. But now, you can.
A company called Tamworth Distilling has just unveiled a new product called “Sylvan Mist,” which is “the world’s first wearable perfume gin.”
It’s described as a woodsy, unisex scent . . . combining “violet leaf, chamomile flowers, juniper, balsam fir, citrus, and boronia flowers,” and it smells like “boreal forest, fresh-cut grass, kiwi skin, and honeydew melon.”
Even better: It was created to be drinkable . . . meaning that you can be making yourself a cocktail, and alternate spritzing your cocktail AND your neck. (???)
It’s a potent 151-proof . . . but it’s not intended to be the base in a stiff perfume martini. It’s supposed to be a garnish that you spray onto a drink. They suggest spraying it on an Aviation, or the cocktail “Bee’s Knees.”
