Elegant and chic like haute couture but infinitely more affordable and wearable, the best fragrances from fashion houses have the ability to make every day feel like the runway. Here are the latest and greatest from the world’s top designers.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
A blockbuster since it launched in 2005, this scent is an explosion of floral sensations: centifolia rose, sambac jasmine, cattleya orchid and India osmanthus. There is nothing else quite like it, trust us.
Yves Saint Laurent Libre Intense
A warm floral, this fragrance blends notes of diva lavender heart from France and Moroccan orange blossom with orchid and vanilla. It’s a statement-making scent that smells like freedom.
Issey Miyake Drop d’Issey Eau De Parfum
The newest iteration of the Japanese designer’s classic L’Eau d’Issey, this poetic scent stars a solar lilac signature with a musky note, a hint of almond milk accord and a touch of ethically sourced orange blossom.
Valentino Born in Roma Yellow Dream For Her
Housed in a bottle decorated with Valentino’s iconic rockstuds, this dreamy scent has three facets: the energy of Italian primofiore lemon, the femininity of Damascan rose and a clean accord with sensual white musk that gives way to a powdery softness.
Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum Intense
A more intense and sophisticated version of the Italian designer’s Si, this fragrance’s top note is juicy blackcurrant nectar, with Isparta rose at the heart, and patchouli and benzoin resin making up its base notes for a memorable, enveloping effect.
