Best Bet: Perfume Lockets

Local perfumer Anne McClain and jewelry designer Katrina LaPenne have each earned fans through indie stockists like Catbird, Love Adorned, and Thistle & Clover. This holiday season, they’re teaming up on a collection of giftable, sweet-smelling baubles. The handmade lockets are crafted from sterling silver (which gives them a satisfying weight) and carved with roses, lilacs, or moonflowers. Each is filled with MCMC's natural solid perfumes, based in beeswax and jojoba oil and scented with quality ingredients like Bulgarian rose absolute and French basil. The perfume is 25 percent more concentrated than your standard spritz bottle, so a tiny dab on your wrist or neck lasts longer.
