7 Pretty New Perfumes Guaranteed to Put a Spring in Your Step

Wby Jane Larkworthy

When it comes to fragrances, I gravitate toward the classics. I'm betting the new Jour d'Hermès (far left, $149, usa.hermes.com) will soon join that canon. The company's perfumer, Jean-Claude Ellena, describes it as "a profusion of flowers," but he's keeping the exact recipe under wraps. (I detect orange blossom and gardenia.) The lovely bottle comes courtesy of Pierre Hardy, who has been designing the house's shoes and jewelry since 2001.

Other noteworthy newcomers (from left, starting with second bottle):


1) Manifesto by YSL Beauté ($102, yslbeautyus.com): This tangy lily of the valley and jasmine mix has a kick of fruit.

6) Les Exclusifs de Chanel 1932 ($230, chanel.com): Named for the brand's first High Jewelry collection, this woodsy jasmine scent reminds me of the beach.

7) Something Blue by Oscar de la Renta ($115, oscardelarenta .com): A white-floral blend dominated by stephanotis and lily of the valley.
