One Love

Second Love
The other hippie perfume makeover is Ralph Lauren Notorious, $65, which balances the smoky base with warm chocolate and the sweet-and-tart brightness of bergamot.

Best Beauty Buys

Pollution Solution
Since I couldn't pack an entire pollution-eradicating tulip tree on a recent trip to Beijing, I staved off the city's legendary smog with Chanel's new Prcision cleansing line. Formulated with micronized wax from tulip-tree leaves, the washes and toners, $45 each, draw age-accelerating free radicals from skin.

Eye Do
Since I always cry at weddings, I surely wouldn't have survived this past season without Cl de Peau Concealer, $68. A few dabs of its light-reflecting formula erase redness and subdue puffiness--while staying put through the reception.

Tea Time
Though I can't stomach the bitter flavor of kombucha aka black-tea ferment I certainly want the healing benefits of this ancient Chinese remedy. Finally, I can get it with Fresh's Black-Tea Instant Perfecting Mask, $85. Fortified with sake and lychee-seed extract, the cooling cream brightens and softens skin with no aftertaste.
