SCENT & SENSUALITY
"Spray on a dark, musky, warm scent."
This type of aroma is like comfort food: irresistible. Ford's favorite? Tom Ford Estée Lauder Youth Dew Amber Nude, natch.
Also try: Thierry Mugler Alien and Versace Crystal Noir.
Tip: Musky scents can come on strong, so spritz from the backs of your knees up, since heat, which diffuses scent, rises.
"Swathe yourself in sensuality."
Ford suggests surrounding yourself in silk, satin and velvet this time of year. To make your body equally soft and to eradicate all traces of dryness, slather on an "extreme" body cream, formulated with ingredients that keep you hydrated around the clock.
Try: Curél Continuous Comfort Moisturizing Lotion and St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion.
Tip: Silicone, the active ingredient in hair serum, is responsible for making strands extra-silky - in a pinch, you can use it to lube up your limbs, too.
