At Bath & Body Works, a charming, country-style store that belongs to the Limited trio, the scents are already blended into potpourri, soaps, shower gels, body lotions, colognes and lotions.
Back at Westside I, delicious aromas waft from Cook Works, a store specializing in gourmet coffees ($8.75 a pound for regular, $9.75 for decaffeinated), kitchen wares and decorative, practical gourds ($58 to $186).
At Wood of a Kind, gift items made in Los Angeles of exotic imports, such as zebrawood, bubinga and cocabola, , are priced from $9 for a business-card holder to $172 for a two-tiered jewelry box.
The store, another temporary tenant, is on the first floor near Nordstrom. It has been a favorite with Japanese and French tourists, manager Melody Buchanan says. And with Charlie Sheen, whose Christmas list included heart-shaped puzzle boxes ($39 to $51).
