Head to Common Scents for whatever sweet-smelling lotion, soap, candle, oil or skincare product you’re currently craving. There’s a good chance this Noe Valley institution carries it. Even better: Concoct your own scent at its lotion bar (415-826-1019).
If you’re nervous about working out, or you just want a fitness regime customized to your needs, check out private yoga at The Pad Studios.
