The daily lemming

As self-tanners go, this one sounds rather nice: "This refreshing body mist created by Lucia Pica delivers freshness and hydration with a warm, cologne-inspired scent and progressively enhances skin's natural golden glow.... Classic self-tanning technology provides a soft, gradual tan. Inspired by Mademoiselle's L'Huile Tan released in 1932, this mist is presented in a modern interpretation of the iconic bottle." According to an answer in the Q&A section, it's "a beautiful blend of citrus cologne with accents of orange blossom and lily, with an underlying soft amber base of white musks." $60 for 75 ml.
