Having "stinky" sardines on an aroma vessel (that resembles a fortune teller's orb) is a cheeky, bold statement—but don't worry, it's not the scent being diffused through the charcoal-like reeds. "Otto" is Fornasetti's aromatic signature, with top notes of thyme and lavender and base notes of incense, balsam and birch. The decorative diffusing sphere pipes "Otto" through the room for three to six months.

The British-made Cactus Tongue takes its name from the fact that it resembles a giant Saguaro cactus, with curvy arms to hold a bike horizontally or vertically. The powder-coated Zintec steel Cactus Tongue UNI (with weatherproof PVC sleeves to protect your bike from the metal) works for both indoor or outdoor use, but for a higher end aesthetic variation, the more expensive stainless steel version (with leather sleeves) is also worthy of holding your prized bike.
For their most recent collaboration, Ghostly and Warby Parker have created a pair of minimal and classy sunglasses: the Henning. Made from premium matte acetate and Japanese titanium, the frames offer 100% UV protection and an anti-scratch coating—for those klutzes who are always dropping their shades on the sidewalk. The branding is also super-minimal, with just a small badge boasting the cute Ghostly logo at the end of the arms—adding a little playful edge, but ultimately staying sophisticated. Most importantly though, for each set of Hennings sold, a pair is given to somebody in need.
