SENSE-ABILITIES AT THE TASTING PANEL, WE PUT OUR SENSES TO THE TEST WITH EVERY SIP AND SNIFF. HERE ARE SOME PRODUCTS THAT CHALLENGE OUR SENSE-ABILITIES IN NEW WAYS, PROVING THAT FROM TASTE TO TOUCH, OUR SENSES ARE ON HIGH ALERT. Clean and Pretty Between summer festivals, fêtes, concerts and cam- pouts, this season is all about being in the great outdoors, often with little more than a port-a-potty and some hand sanitizer to use for a touch of freshening up. Finally, here to help clean you up while keeping your scent spectacular is You Smell paper hand soap, portable soapy sheets that offer an all-natural, heavenly-scented clean-me-up that you can carry in your pocket or purse. We can see these sheets getting use for on-the-go tastings, and hear buzz that boutique hotels are getting nice and clean with these soaps, proving that when it comes to good clean fun, the possibilities are endless. www. Nose Knows Best We've all been there: You're walking around a crowded tasting, enjoying some wonderful wines, when BAM! You're hit with the overpowering, olfactory-smashing scent of a lady wearing far too much perfume. But with Kelly & Jones Notes of Wine perfumes, a line of varietal-specifi c scents designed to channel the essence of Riesling, Sauv Blanc, Cab, Merlot or Chardonnay, perfume is suddenly wine-friendly. This summer, we'll be wearing Notes of Chardonnay, with melon fruit oakiness mingling with soft notes of vanilla to bring the essence of the varietal from the vine to the skin—and perfectly paired with a glass of Chard. www. july 2012 / the tasting panel / 37
