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).
