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)

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
