It is no co­in­ci­dence that roses are crop­ping up left and right in fra­grance. “Pink was a re­ally big trend in ready-towear,” says Roopal Pa­tel, fash­ion di­rec­tor at Saks Fifth Av­enue, “so it’s in­ter­est­ing to see that rose as a fra­grance was top of mind for a lot of [per­fume] la­bels.” In honor of her par­ents’ love story, Tory Burch pairs rose with warm patchouli in Love Re­lent­lessly, and Ar­mani’s Sì Rose blends the bloom with sen­sual base notes like am­ber, rem­i­nis­cent of the sul­try sheaths seen on Dolce & Gab­bana’s spring run­way. For an edgier take on the flower, Dior’s Poi­son boasts bit­ter orange, and Ex Ni­hilo’s Devil Ten­der starts spicy with pink pep­per berries. Aerin’s Gar­den Rose, with green notes of gera­nium blended with var­i­ous roses, re­calls the sheer, em­broi­dered frocks at Alexander Mc­queen.
