Hylnds is the brand-new line of fragrances from D.S & Durga, which produces excellent scents like Cowboy Grass and Mississippi Medicine. The makers took inspiration from Northern European mythology, and so all three bottles employ rare Nordic plants and balsams. We love all three, but for summer, the most fitting is Pale Grey Mountain, Small Black Lake, which is a sensorial tour de force. It lifts off the skin like a clean, moss-kissed mountain mist, with notes of violets and beechwood. You could take this scent anywhere, anytime (plus, it will transition nicely into fall). Perhaps your new signature? [$180 for 1.7 oz; dsanddurga.com]
