The U.S. Postal Service said Monday that it will issue its first-ever scratch-and-sniff stamps that will aim to evoke the sweet scent of summer. The 10 different stamp designs each feature a watercolor illustration of two different ice pops on a stick.

The sweet smells of summer: freshly cut grass, barbeque on a grill, the beach and suntan lotion???

One thing is sure: there will be one scent for all of the stamps and the secret smell will be unveiled when the Postal Service issues the stamps on June 20th.

Obviously, my friend in America has to send me a letter this summer !!! Yours, Fran

Alessi has produced everyday designer objects since 1921, and in fact, most of us have a few products from them in our home, most likely in the kitchen. They frequently partner with some of the best designers in the world, and for this collection it was Dutch designer Marcel Wanders.

Together, they’ve launched the Five Seasons collection composed of 5 fragrances based on the four seasons, plus a mysterious, sensual and spiritual 5th season – all for the home.

At the launch party during the Milan Design Week, they served 5 cocktails designed to ‘match’ each of the fragrances. What a gorgeous idea to imagine how a fragrance would taste and look if translated into a refreshing drink.

The collection has room perfumes, candles, and diffusers, and emphasizes obviously on the unique scents that will fit any décor.
