This season's flankers run the gamut from zesty and effervescent to unapologetically pretty

1 of 8

L’Eau de Chloé: Where the original Chloé from 2008 conveyed polished femininity, L’Eau de Chloé excels at joie de vivre. Composed once again by Michel Almairac, who used distilled rose water, a mélange of citrus and patchouli, this scent boasts the effervescence of champagne with a zesty twist. $105 for 100 ml (EDT) at Sephora, select department stores and drugstores across Canada


2 of 8

Armani Code Luna: This spinoff of the popular Armani Code collection builds upon the orange blossom signature of the original with notes of rich vanilla, aromatic bergamot and sweet pear. A scent that transitions seamlessly from day into night (hence the name), it was crafted by olfactive mastermind Domique Ropion. 480 for 875 (EDT) at Sephora and fine department stores across Canada

Burberry Brit Summer Edition: While you could certainly get away with wearing this spirited scent to work, it has a daydream-y personality – the type of fragrance that is as delicious as it is refreshing. Pear, peony, Italian lime, green tea and sugared almond conjure up a verdant terrace on the Mediterranean. $76 for 100 ml (EDT) at The Bay and Burberry boutiques


4 of 8

David Yurman Summer Essence: As the fourth fragrant jewel in the David Yurman Essence series, this fruity floral marries pear, peach nectar and apple blossom with muguet, hyacinth and orchid. Such full-throttle prettiness makes it ideal for a summer wedding or special occasion. But the amethyst-tinged juice is not so precious to preclude everyday wear. $90 for 100 ml (EDT) at The Bay, Holt Renfrew and Murale

Gucci Flora Garden series: A grouping of five scents, each with a different flower in the starring role, this collection takes its cue from the archival floral-print motif that has appeared on Gucci’s handbags and scarves. Gorgeous Gardenia, a white floral rounded out by fruity red berries and pear, is unobtrusively luscious. $124 for 100 ml (EDT) at Holt Renfrew and The Bay stores across Canada


6 of 8

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Petite Flowers: For a limited time, Marc Jacobs’ popular Daisy and Daisy Eau So Fresh fragrances are available in portable flower-shaped bottles, which not only look super kawaii, but contain a juice that sparkles on the skin. $42 for 20 ml (EDT) at department stores across Canada

Lise Watier Summer Sunset: While Neige, the reigning queen of homegrown winter scents, may have turned her nose up at a summer counterpart, those who fell for last year’s Bora Bora will be pleased to discover that Summer Sunset is the same formulation, just rebranded. Like a multicoloured maxi dress, it’s equal parts easy and sexy. $55 for 50 ml (EDT) at drugstores and department stores across Canada

Voyage d’Hermès Pure Perfume: In-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena created Voyage d’Hermès two years ago as a journey to an unnamed place. Now, he has returned to this olfactive destination and decided to crank up the intensity. Unadulterated, its new notes of cardamom and spice bring richness and summer heat to an already refined year-round scent. $159 for 100 ml (EDP) at Hermès boutiques and Holt Renfrew stores across Canada
