Gone are the days of com­mit­ting your­self to a sin­gle sig­na­ture scent. Like your closet—filled with wardrobe basics, but trans­formed each sea­son with on-trend pieces that en­sure your per­sonal style evolves with the times and isn’t stuck in the past—your fra­grances should be a means of self-ex­pres­sion. Each one re­flects a day’s par­tic­u­lar mood.

“Fra­grance and fash­ion are his­tor­i­cally linked,” says leg­endary per­fumer Fran­cis Kurkd­jian. “I do be­lieve that one should have a fra­grance wardrobe, a mix of age­less clas­sics and fash­ion­able trends.” Kelly St. John, VP of beauty at Neiman Mar­cus, agrees: “A fra­grance wardrobe is ex­pected and en­cour­aged, al­low­ing our cus­tomers to select some­thing that fits the day’s in­spi­ra­tion.” It’s only fit­ting, then, that the sea­son’s four strong­est fash­ion looks—lively, retro beach­wear; sul­try, ro­man­tic flo­rals; bold, sleek power dress­ing; and chic ath­leisure with a vintage twist—pair so seam­lessly with today’s bold­est scents.
