You don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty, especially if it means washing up with something pretty.
Discover lovely new suds at Formulary 55, the new small-batch bath and body boutique opened by Cordelia Smith.
The 200-square-foot shop, which Smith created with a modern apothecary in mind, is bright and airy thanks to big front windows. Delicately packaged soaps, perfumes, candles, and other gifty items displayed on reclaimed poplar and reused metal pipes lend an organic feel.
Score Fig & Yarrow’s cardamom and coffee body scrub or Royal Apothic’s androgynous Heroes & Aristocrats fragrance. Other covetable brands include Uptown Soap Company, Olo Fragrance, and Marble & Milkweed, as well as Smith’s own lines (Sweet Petula, Mr. Mustachio, and Good Clean Dog).
Mention DailyCandy when you shop in September to get a free seven-ounce botanical bath bar. And make it a clean sweep.
