A moveable feast, with sweet, savory, citrus and everything in between, this season's gourmand fragrances represent a cornucopia of options.
Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soil A unisex scent epitomizing the essence of Italian warmth and nobility, Tuscan Soul has citrusy notes of bergamot and petit grain, a heart of magnolia and orange blossoms and a base of two Italian classics, iris and fig. A designer for the bella figura set, Ferragamo captures Tuscan style in a bottle. $105, Neiman Marcus, Ferragamo.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Never known for being demure, Juicy Couture has a new fragrance that’s all about rococo sweetness—and comes, of course, in a flacon hung with a gilded crest. Inside, the scent of wild berries, mandarins, honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine blend with amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline. $85, department stores.
Jo Malone Sweet Lime and Cedar Thai cuisine, with its expertly balanced scents and flavors, inspired Jo Malone’s newest. In addition to its namesake ingredients, the mouthwatering Siamese blend includes Kaffir lime, blood orange, pomelo, passion fruit, jasmine, ylangylang, coconut and tamarind. $95, Bergdorf Goodman, Jo Malone, Neiman Marcus, Saks.
Tokyo Milk Let Them Eat Cake This nostalgic blend mixes sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid and white musk. Packaged in a simple bottle with vintage-style fonts, this is the scent to reach for when you’re looking for old-fashioned sweetness. $28, anthropologie.com.
Jessica Simpson Fancy Playful and sweet, this scent is nearly edible, full of pear, apricot nectar, red fruits, toasted almonds, vanilla and caramel. Like its flirtatious muse, Fancy is unabashedly feminine, too, thanks to gardenia, jasmine, sandalwood and amber. $59, department stores.

“I’m Russian and I love to use all these little tricks that I got from my grandma or my mom. We didn’t have a lot of money for creams or anything like that so we would use a garden as a beauty treatment regime. We’d put cucumber in the fridge and do a cucumber mask,” says model @irinashayk on one of her beauty hacks. WWD asked celebs what their go-to self-care rituals are.
