The glut of minty toothpaste flavors leave refined palettes with little option when it comes time to brush. Breath Palette, a new line of flavored toothpastes and mouthwashes, are a welcome alternative for mouths bored with generic brands. Developed in Japan, the toothpaste is meant to address the problem of "taste disorders" and allergies in the mouth and is available in 32 varieties that range widely, from exotic Japanese Plum to the bizarre Fresh Yogurt flavor. A Ph-balanced flavorless version is purportedly used as a palatte-cleanser by chefs and sommeliers. The pastes are made with Xylitol, are less foamy (better for electric toothbrush users), mincrobeads mean they're less abrasive, and — because they don't have synthetic surface agents — better for user health and the environment. Both the toothpaste and a line of mouthwash are also alcohol-free, reducing dehydration and bad breath. Sold individually, as a set of 32, or as grouped flavors, like Sweet Tooth ( Vanilla, Bitter Chocolate, Caramel, L'Espresso, and Pumpkin Pudding) and East Meets West (Green Tea, Indian Curry, Tropical Pineapple, Darjeeling Tea, and Cinnamon), by retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, Breath Palette's making hygeine haute.

The entire line is $160 from Amazon or Neiman Marcus, or Nordstrom.
