Dally Goods’s Aromatic Hand Washes Are Designed to Help You Unwind
Hand-wringing and hand-washing seem to be defining this time warp of a pandemic. When it comes to the latter, we’re partial to the Slowdown hand-wash set from the New York upstart Dally Goods—not just for its name (which, to be clear, we’re not connected to), but its ethos of embracing a “slower-paced lifestyle.” With such ambling scents as Barefoot in the Grass, Rolling Wave After Rolling Wave After Rolling Wave, and Naps in the Grove, the trio of soaps evoke smelling and feeling your way through a range of escapist summer settings—and possibly time zones, as its makers suggest, if you let your mind wander far enough. The delightful bottles, created by the design firm Pentagram, even add a little touch of concrete poetry to the mundane. Experts say fantasy can provide a way through difficult times; if harmless daydreaming can get us through this moment, we’ll happily indulge in a bit of wanderlust where we can find it.
