Bring along a TSA-approved scent for your holiday travel—it’ll last longer than your trip.

Sometimes, the last place you want to be is home for the holidays. Daydreaming at the office of sandy shores and urban adventures is what holds us over through rushed deadlines and longer winter nights. So, if you made the move and booked your ticket, then you deserve a new rollerball scent to take with you. The Sephora Glossy has rounded up the best travel-friendly fragrances to match your destination and make the experience all the more memorable. JESSICA VELEZ

If you’re hitting the slopes…

Gloves and scarves are not the only items to pack if you want to stay toasty when you’re heading to Tahoe and the like. A warm scent with spiced notes will make you feel all the more bundled up, and will turn up the romance if you plan on clinking hot cocoa mugs by the fire with your boo. Commodity Gold, a luxurious musky fragrance, will fit right in in the French Alps or Aspen. If you need more of a jolt before you snowboard down the mountain, note that Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium is mixed with coffee in addition to its earthy patchouli essence. And since you’re willing to brave frigid temps, you’re obviously a bit of a daredevil, making Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black your match. Its sandalwood and rich vanilla notes will make everyone who glides by want to know who’s behind that ski mask.

If you’re diving in headfirst at the beach…

Not everyone is dreaming of a white Christmas, and who can blame you for ditching eggnog for margaritas on the beach? Not us! So, with your relaxed spirit in mind, we’ve paired a trio of scents for your balmy getaway. For the island wanderer, MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA’s heliotrope- and pink pepper–infused Beach Walk scent is what you should throw in your rattan bag. And THE BLEND 03 Amber Vanilla is like the fragrance equivalent of a coconut bra. Lastly, moonlit boardwalk strolls call for a zesty scent like Atelier Cologne’s Mandarine Glaciale.

If you’ll be bustling in a big city…

You finally took up your cousin’s offer to visit her in the city, and have plans to see the holiday parade. So, you need a scent as chic as your surroundings and as crisp as the weather. Tory Burch is a classic metropolitan brand, and its Eau de Parfum scent will keep you happy and alert with grapefruit nestled in its mixture. If heading to the city park is a must-do, bring along the floral Chloé Eau de Parfum fragrance. And Jimmy Choo’s Illicit scent was made for a glamorous night on the town where holiday lights sparkle from every building. Lastly, a fancy hotel’s tea service calls for British designer Stella McCartney’s eponymous perfume that’s both prim and feminine.

If you’re glamping in the desert…

A nomadic desert trip frees you from both the winter vortex and the pressure of trying on a bathing suit after eating dozens of gingerbread men—what’s not to love? Even though the degrees will fluctuate, you’ll still want fresh, cooling scents here since the dry terrain will leave you thirsty. Victor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb is an incredibly soft perfume that won’t weigh you down if things heat up. On cool nights, when the desert sky gives you a crystal-clear view of the stars, warm up with Narcisco Rodriguez’s romantic For Her perfume. If the thermometer reaches a breaking point, bring Marc Jacob’s Mod Noir gardenia scent to instantly freshen you up. And, if you start seeing mirages filled with sugarplums, Prada Candy’s oh-so-sweet notes will hold you over.

the stiles who couldn't hide

for jen, who wanted stiles as a werespider [x] . it’s also a high school AU!

also, you should watch this video to see some ridiculous spider hiding action

It’s a full moon, and Derek howls with delight, fully shifted, chasing down the scent of Laura and the buck she’s scented, playfully flanking it from the right. It’s a glorious night, and Derek lets the pull of the moon bring that delicious primitive side of the werewolf forth, that part of him that’s pure, wild instinct, and he is a majestic, powerful creature that can–


Derek is stuck.

He’s fallen into some sort of ditch– no, a trap, and his mind automatically supplies hunters, but what kind of hunter lines their trap with old cobwebs? And there’s no way a person could have hidden this trap so well, it was practically part of the forest floor–

Derek twitches, but he’s caught tight in the dark pit, stuck fast to the stringy webs that lace the pit. The more he struggles the more entwined he gets.

There’s a scuttling that’s getting louder, and Derek goes still when he sees it. And it’s obviously not a hunter’s trap, or a human one, because that is the biggest fucking spider he’s ever seen.

The thing makes a curious clicking nose and it clambers over, long, skinny brown limbs sweeping closer. It’s practically the size of a person, it’s oblong body scooting closer, beady eyes glimmering in the dark.

Derek winces and closes his eyes. This is it, he’s going to be eaten by a giant spider, and he tenses as something hairy flickers across his face, and then moves away.

Derek opens his eyes, and the spider is scuttling away suddenly, stopping a few feet away, like its decided with the face-touching that Derek probably wouldn’t taste good. And now its turning back and forth, scratching at the ground, flattening itself, almost like it’s…embarrassed?

Clash of the Titans

Resbang is eh right now, and you all encouraged me yesterday, so this happened. College AU with ToraDora! premise.

The door of the coffee shop was emblazoned with a familiar green trim, but instead of the trademark mermaid that dotted every city corner in New York City, the circular logo slapped on every wall, doorway, and coffee cup featured a cartoonish skull. The most incriminating evidence of plagiarism was the coffee shop’s name–Deathbucks.


“How the hell hasn’t this place been sued yet?” Soul wondered aloud. He fingered the shoulder strap of his bag, gathering his courage. The overwhelming whirlwind of sophomore year had only just begun, and already Soul felt the weight of his classes hang heavily on his psyche. This school year wasn’t going to be easy, but he had a feeling things were turning around.


Soul pushed open the door of the coffee shop, resolute. This year things were going to go differently. This was the year everything was going to turn around. No more rumors that he was a demon some drunk freshman summoned with a spell off the internet. No more whispers that Soul was secretly a mass arsonist, a cult leader, a serial killer, or a death eater. No, this was his year to shine, his year to show everyone that red eyes and sharp teeth didn’t mark him as the spawn of Satan. He just had to get over his shyness and take the first step.
