Admission: When we were in third grade, we got some study hall time thanks to un petit incident that involved a frenemy and a stink bomb. Needless to say, we haven't tried the prank again, until now...Enter luxe French candle-makers Cire Trudon's appropriately titled "Stink Bombs," a perfume product we spotted at Bergdorf Goodman that puts an interesting spin on the childhood gag. Think of them as a room freshener on crack—throw one of these babies on the ground ("preferably outside or on a resistant floor," according to the company) for an explosion of perfume that's the opposite of noxious. Available in their signature fragrances, Nazareth, Odalisque, and Roi Soleil, among others, we think these stylish scent sensations are perfect to liven up your July 4th party. Just don't do it in front of the teacher.
Prices vary, available at Bergdorf Goodman, 754 5th Avenue (at 58th Street); 212-753-7300.
