2. rodin ‘olio lusso’ oil
as with most things, in the beginning it was all about the packaging. rodin’s classic bottle (inspired by lettering on an old postcard found by the line’s creator linda rodin) looks good on a shelf and smells—in the best possible way, i promise—like aging flowers. i’m reminded of jennifer lawrence’s american hustle character and her obsession with a perfume that smells like rot. this is the same thing.

3. the work of gianni caravaggio
the italian-born, german-raised artist creates work that is wholly challenging and unrestricted. i can’t stop looking at this gallery from kaufman repetto.

4. this video by renee rhodes
