Your sense of smell is so emo­tion­ally charged that the mere whiff of cer­tain in­gre­di­ents can in­stantly lift your mood, ig­nite a mem­ory or trans­port you to an imag­i­nary des­ti­na­tion. And fash­ion de­sign­ers know that in the same way as a great pair of heels can trans­form your posture and con­fi­dence, the right fra­grance can shift your at­ti­tude and self­ex­pres­sion. All of which leads to these lux­u­ri­ous, run­way-in­spired cre­ations – flo­rals with a mod­ern dif­fer­ence. Which one will you be wear­ing next? Feel like a cat­walk queen with the aro­matic ex­pres­sion of these adored fash­ion brands.
