1. JO MALONE LONDON RED ROSES
Made with seven types of roses from around the world, this surprisingly clean, voluptuous scent has a heart of crushed violet leaves with hints of lemon and spearmint. It captures the same light and sophisticated feel we expect from the perfumer, who’s been winning over both men and women with its enchanting scents since 1994. Fans of romantic florals, get in line. Available at Nordstrom, inside Fashion Show, (702) 862-2525
2. ROSABOTANICA BY BALENCIAGA
In 1946, the House of Balenciaga launched its first perfume, which soon attracted the same acclaim as the famous Balenciaga couture pieces. Rosabotanica is a bright and spicy floral, which has accents of hyacinth and creamy green notes of fig leaf, followed by sparkling, slightly bitter drops of grape- fruit and fresh spicy notes of pink pepper and cardamom to enhance its personality. It finishes with vibrant and luminous white woods, made of cedar wood, vetiver and patchouli with clean woody notes. Delectable. Available at Neiman Marcus at Fashion Show, (702) 731-3636.
3. TRALALA BY PENHALIGON’S
Who could resist this charming package, inspired by the universe of designers Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoffz? Saffron, whiskey, ambrette seed and green violet are layered over soft and supple leather, resins and balsams. The intoxicating luxury fragrance comes in a whimsical gift package and is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide. In Las Vegas at Fashion Show, (702) 733-8300
