Break some traffic laws in the Hamptons this summer, and you might just get pulled over by a fabulous-smelling member of the local police force. Fabulous-smelling? Why, yes. To celebrate its first season at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Southampton, luxury fragrance company Creed last week sent bottles of Royal Water, Original Santal, and Virgin Island Water to the Southampton Village Police Department as a gesture of greeting and token of appreciation for its service. The bottles were sent to the police chief and his top officers. The rest of the force were given supplies of Creed's iconic Silver Mountain Water. Smells like summer! [Racked Inbox]
