It’s a veritable Eden this month as fruit and floral fragrances galore hit the shelves. There’s enough to send horticulturists and perfume lovers alike into a tizzy.
01 Marc Jacobs Daisy This adorable, happy bottle will brighten up any vanity thanks to the sunny, vinyl daisies blooming from its cap. The fragrance is equally fresh, featuring strawberry, grapefruit, gardenia and musk notes that will put you in a glass-half-full kind of mood. ($55; Bloomingdale’s)
02 Nina by Nina Ricci Like the forbidden fruit that Eve just couldn’t resist, this alluring scent is composed of Calabrese lemon, Caipirinha lime, red toffee apple and apple tree wood. The blend is housed in a tempting pomme-shaped flacon. ($50; Macy’s)
03 Manuel Canovas Paris L’Ile Bleue From the revered textile house comes this citrus fragrance, inspired by the villa gardens of Capri. The eye-catching box is covered in the house’s 2006 Tessa print, featuring lush magnolias blooming against a Mediterranean blue background. ($95; Bergdorf Goodman, canovasfragrance.com)
04 Victoria’s Secret Pear Glacé Refreshing Body Mist Revamped and repackaged, this best-selling mist contains aloe vera and chamomile to soothe dry, parched skin and leaves your body veiled in a blend of pear nectar and violet-cassis. ($9; Victoria’s Secret, victoriassecret.com)
05 Avon Imari Seduction Plums, wild berries, purple orchid and vanilla make up this seductive scent, perfectly embodied by its sultry spokeswoman, American Idol contestant and newly annointed Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson. ($22.50; 800-FOR-AVON, avon.com)
