The beauty products we’re coveting now.
1. Miu Miu Fleur d’Argent Eau de Parfum Spray ($105 for 50 mL) breaks with the Miu Miu fragrance tradition of opening with lily of the valley. Instead, tuberose takes the top spot for a more sophisticated scent. 2. When Clinique launched Happy in the late ’90s, the citrusy floral was everything the angsty era was not. To reinvoke that feel-good vibe for modern times, Clinique My Happy Eau de Toilette Spray ($29 for 15 mL) comes in six versions based on notes that millions of the brand’s fans around the world said brought them joy: baked goods, nature, flowers, tea and the beach. (Go figure.) 3. Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue Eau de Toilette Spray ($82 for 100 mL), a crisp floral, is an ode to the brand’s gutsy Canadian-American founder, who opened her very first storefront on the ritzy New York street. 4. Memories of visiting her grandmother Estée’s home in the South of France inspired Aerin Lauder to create this green floral scent. Aerin Éclat de Vert Eau de Parfum Spray ($285 for 50 mL). 5. Burberry Her Eau de Parfum Spray ($107 for 50 mL) is a striking combo of red berries, jasmine and violet with a musky amber accord. Master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian calls it a true signature scent. 6. Perfumer Mathilde Laurent was inspired by diamond fire, the prismatic rainbow-like sparkle of light hitting a diamond, when creating Cartier Carat Eau de Parfum Spray ($167 for 100 mL). She used an array of florals—violet, iris, hyacinth, ylang-ylang, daffodil, honeysuckle and tulip—to represent the colours in the spectrum. 7. Mugler Alien Flora Futura Eau de Toilette Spray ($94 for 60 mL) will satisfy admirers of woody florals, thanks to the creamy sandalwood and queen of the night (a type of cactus that blooms with fragrant white flowers only once a year).
