Here, find the best bottled and hand-poured bouquets from hotels like the Chateau Marmont and the W offer—consider them the ultimate staycation hack...
The signature scent of Westin Hotels is a *fancy* blend of white tea with wood cedar and vanilla. (Their Rome property's Villa La Cupola Suite is billed at $30,000 a night and is number 8 on the list of the World's 15 most expensive hotel suites, so fancy is the word.)

Created by Amor et Psyché, which means its ingredients were derived from a discreet part of the word and hand-poured in England, it marries fig (a scent beloved by Plato for its mental-stirring qualities) with woody cassis.
