There is something about the beginning hints of Summer that make me long for boardwalks, nautical prints, and vintage.
...A turn of the 20th century boardwalk basically comes to mind. And with a new season of parties and lazy beach days we need a new fragrance (for guys too!).
Luckily, as soon as I found West Third Brand I knew it was perfect with its chic vintage labels, fantastic fragrances, and smart fragrance names. And made in the USA. "Its founder Michael Loring-Probst has defined the brand by intuition, assembling ideas and aesthetics of vintage Americana with a fine weave of European splendor."

These body sprays combine more masculine scents like tobacco and musk with more feminine scents of peony and jasmine.
The fragrances are pretty gender neutral beyond the typical associations folks have. However if you're looking for a masculine scent I'd try the Marché de Tabac or the Old Bourbon.

Everything is done by hand including the bottling/labeling. The "juice" is crafted in small batches, which takes lots of patience.-@westthirdbrand
Reading the long list of West Third Brand's fragrances I want to try them all. And because of the lightness of these body spray fragrances, they even suggest layering your favorite fragrances to create your personal scent.
If the scents themselves didn't sound so deliciously fabulous, their names definitely do. Their Société de Senteur (Sweet Company) collection is my vision of fun and flirty days on a 20th century boardwalk exactly. Fragrances include
- "7 Heartbreaks" a citrus and floral blend and even hints of fruit, chocolate, and amber
- "Ropes & Sails" a citrus, grapefruit, and sandalwood combination
- "Woodstock" a sandalwood, cedar, musk, and vanilla perfume
And their Liberté collection is so patriotic and all-American with "Amérique", "Old Bourbon", and "Vintage Leather". After the summer ends (can you even imagine fall yet?) I think "Tea Room" from their Smell. Good. Daily. collection will be my go-to daily scent with its floral and ylanglang hints.
All of the locations that currently hold the brand are listed on their Stocklist including quite a few locations in Japan or you can order any of their fragrances on their site for US $32.
Which fragrance is your favorite? Would you mix different scents to create something unique?
