Peonies, apricot blossom, raspberries and grappa make even the most classical florals new again.
01 Dior Addict Shine As intense as its name implies, this scent is all about confidence. A mix of cedarwood, cedrat, raspberry and gardenia, the sensual and bright mix may indeed be addicting. ($70; Sephora) 02 Burberry The Beat Burberry, the ne plus ultra of old-school luxury, brings a modern English beat to this scent. Ceylon tea (what could be more British?), bluebells, bergamot, pink pepper, mandarin, vetiver and musk hit all the right notes. ($80; Nordstrom)
03 John Varvatos From the well-known men’s wear designer comes a mix of notes traditional (patchouli, Turkish rose attar, wild honey and oak moss) and less so (grappa, Damascus plum, Indian mango blossom). The result: a stylish yet romantic floral-hearted fragrance. ($92; Saks)
04 American Beauty Beloved This romantic scent captures a classic American garden in full flower, with swoon-inducing blooms such as golden apricot blossoms, calla lilies, tuberose, purple orris and orange flowers. ($39.50; Kohl’s) 05 Chloe Chloé’s always been known for effortless chic. Its latest scent gives a polished gloss to flowers, with peony, lychee and freesia shimmering around a velvet heart of rose. ($85; Chloé boutiques, Saks)
06 Tommy Hilfiger Dreaming The master of sunny American optimism, Tommy Hilfiger is bringing a more grown-up sensibility to his latest. The voluptuous white peach, tuberose and freesia at the heart of Dreaming are as transporting as promised. ($45; Bon-Ton, Macy’s, Ulta)

“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
