A devotion to laid-back luxury put this designer on the map, and his new limited edition fragrance, Michael Kors Gold ($75 for 1.7 oz;, delivers that same everyday glamour in spades. This sheerer version of his signature tuberose-based scent incorporates fresh-smelling notes of crisp green apple and sweet magnolia.

Vibrant, playful scents are a Marc Jacobs hallmark, and Oh, Lola! ($88 for 3.4 oz; is no exception. In this incarnation, juicy raspberry, strawberry, and pear are dressed up with delicate peony and sandalwood. Plus, the brightly colored, sculptural bottle is a surefire pick-me-up.

Coco Chanel was responsible for popularizing many now-classic pieces: necklaces dotted with pearls, tweed jackets, and even jersey dresses. It’s this last sartorial staple that sparked the idea for Jersey ($210 for 6.8 oz;, the latest perfume in the brand’s Les Exclusifs collection. With lush lavender and warm vanilla, the scent is as universally wearable as its namesake label.

Diane von Furstenberg

This pioneer of power dressing designed a scent that will soon be as identifiable as her iconic wrap dress. Diane ($85 for 1.7 oz; is a confident mix of seductive frangipani flower, spicy myrrh, and earthy patchouli that perfectly complements a take-charge attitude.

For the past decade, Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey has upheld the 155-year-old house’s decidedly British identity while simultaneously making the line feel fresh and energized. Burberry Body ($95 for 2.8 oz; acknowledges this mix of old and new by marrying traditional floral notes, such as rose and iris, with youthful, exuberant peach.

After giving a tomboy aesthetic to his collections, Nicolas Ghesquière imbued L’Essence Balenciaga ($130 for 2.5 oz; with a similar vibe. Masculine notes like vetiver and moss are layered upon softer florals, such as violet, for a balance of strength and femininity.

Just like the enduring Fendi baguette, the fruity floral Fan di Fendi ($92 for 2.5 oz; has day-tonight appeal. This intoxicating infusion of sparkling pear, yellow jasmine, and sexy soft leather is bright enough for brunch but sensual enough for cocktail hour—and beyond.

Elie Saab

Known to fashion insiders for his innate sense of cut, couturier Elie Saab uses the body as his canvas, draping fabric directly on the female form. Elie Saab Le Parfum ($120 for 3 oz; is equally instinctive; notes of orange blossom, jasmine, and rose honey instantly enhance—rather than overwhelm—the wearer.

Prada Candy ($108 for 2.7 oz; neimanmarcus .com) is anything but a saccharine confection. Infused with high concentrations of offbeat ingredients, such as white musk, caramel, and benzoin (a vanillascented tree resin), it’s quirky yet chic—ideal for the woman who demands to be noticed.

Bottega Veneta

Similar to the brand’s famous braided leather and vibrant patterned pieces, Bottega Veneta ($130 for 2.5 oz; neimanmarcus .com) intricately weaves together raw materials from all over the world: sweet jasmine picked in India, spicy pink peppercorns from Brazil, and exotic patchouli from Indonesia.

Vera Wang

A spritz of Lovestruck ($78 for 3.4 oz; is meant to evoke “the rush you feel when you meet your soul mate,” says Wang, a master of romantic creations. Mist on this pretty mix of pink guava, angelica, and heady tuberose before a date with your intended.

Narciso Rodriguez

Narciso Rodriguez’s limited-edition Essence in Color ($84 for 1.6 oz; is an ode to simplicity and subtlety. Touches of amber, incense, and musk meld seamlessly with clean white florals for a lightweight, powdery scent that reminds the designer of “the purity of sunlight and the weightlessness of air.”
