Exotic, warm, and enveloping. Wearing The Red is like looking through a kaleidoscope of far-away lands and imagining yourself inside. Its smooth, spicy glow surrounds you with a reassuring confidence to venture into the world, but if it also makes you want to cozy up into a shawl on a cool summer evening, go right ahead. It comes from Portland-based The Sum, which creates handmade jewelry and body adornment, thus the reason for the tiny sterling silver bead in every bottle. Oh, and perfumistas rejoice: The nose behind this line is Josh Meyer of Imaginary Authors. Now you know. Notes include fire, saffron, sandalwood, amber, and sterling silver.
