Sure, anyone can take natural ingredients and mix them up to make smell-good water, but it takes balls to chemically engineer your own scents to create a new fragrance. Using this new technique, Commes des Garçons Odeur 53 ($86) features notes from a wide range of scents, including Sand Dunes, Metal, Oxygen, and Wash Drying in the Wind. Apart from being environmentally friendly and smelling really good, there’s always something to be said for being able to claim you smell like “Metal and Nail Polish.”
We don't know about you, but nothing makes us feel more like men than by spraying on some smell good to cover up the fact that we smell like a brewery from the night before.

Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
