Odes to living fully, these oriental fragrances suggest there’s rarely too much of a good thing.
01 Fresh Cannabis Rose Heady and sensual and unabashedly maximalist, with notes of Bulgarian rose, pomegranate flower, sheer jasmine, cannabis, dark chocolate, white musk, patchouli and oolong tea. ($85; Blue Mercury, Fresh, Sephora)
02 Liz Claiborne Curve Connect A fragrance for the Facebook set, Curve Connect is youthful but deep. Bergamot, tangerine, white juicy lemon and cactus fruit mix with saffron, cinnamon bark, vintage woods, patchouli, Tahitian vanilla and amber crystals. ($52; Boscov’s
03 Thierry Mugler Miroir des Secrets Leave it to Thierry Mugler to create a sophisticated fragrance as modern as its sculpted bottle. A natural aldehydic note (most are synthetic) is blended with accents of patchouli and musk to create a shimmering, bittersweet effect. ($150; select Saks) 04 Etat Libre D’Orange Rossy De Palma Eau De Protection A unique scent inspired by and created for the singular Spanish actress Rossy De Palma. Built around the theme of an irreverent rose, its spicy top notes include ginger, Madagascar black pepper and bergamot with a heart of Bulgarian rose and jasmine and base notes of patchouli, incense and cocoa. ($85; Henri Bendel) 05 Baby Phat Kimora Lee Simmons Fabulosity Kimora Lee Simmons’ celebration of voluptuous living is bling in a bottle. The fruity juice opens with plum, orange blossom and tiger lily, segues into a heart of Chinese osmanthus, coconut milk and purple violet and ends on Tasmanian honey, vanilla, patchouli and amber. ($45; Macy’s)

“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
