The 90s were a pretty sweet time. From Spice Girls stickers and jelly shoes to tongue-tattoo Fruit by the Foots and Easy-Bake Ovens, we had it made. Happily, we can still take a break from our current attempts at adulting thanks to the return of our favorite 90s novelty: the scratch 'n' sniff.
Fossil’s Spring 2016 collection featured a line of fun-smelling watch wristbands featuring hints of cotton candy, chocolate, mint, or banana. Now, The Cambridge Satchel Company, in collaboration with Brazilian plastic footwear brand, Melissa, is taking full advantage of scratch 'n' sniff nostalgia by debuting the 11-inch MELISSA X CSC SATCHEL. The bold, brilliant bag made of PVC material actually smells like bubblegum (our fav). In their classic equestrian satchel design, the purse is a playful spin on the expected. With an adjustable strap and waterproof guarantee “from the beaches of Brazil to a rainy day in Britain”, the satchel combines both convenience and durability. For $140, you can get the bag in black, red, or a limited edition color holographic.
Officially launched on the first day of London Fashion Week this month, the satchel took London by storm, promising to make rainy days a little brighter (and better smelling). According to mylifeofftheguestlist.com, this is not the first collaboration for Melissa, who has worked with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Zaha Hadid, and many more. We are so happy that this dreamy collaboration gave us our new favorite travel accessory — this bubblegum smelling bag is a treat we just can’t pass up.
