L by Lolita Lempicka
Perfumer Maurice Roucel has transformed himself into a pastry chef and whipped up a confection for the skin: L by Lolita Lempicka. It's a delectable scent of cotton candy mixed with a touch of blond caramel.

Estée Lauder Pleasures Delight
With Estée Lauder Pleasures Delight, perfumer Annie Buzantian gives you the scent of a fruit salad—you can practically smell blueberries, strawberries, the ripe, almost-cucumber scent of melon—but she leavens it with a sea-air freshness that lightens the fruit and makes it deliciously refreshing.

Dior Hypnotic Poison
Dior Hypnotic Poison was created by the edgy, daring perfumer Annick Ménardo, and it's a masterpiece of brilliant kitsch in a classic gourmand perfume. There's a slightly toxic vanilla scent—you smell vanilla but with an edge of the plastic bottle it comes in, which makes it both alluring and alarming, an enticing equilibrium.

Délices de Cartier Eau Fruitée
Délices de Cartier Eau Fruitée smells like a berry smoothie with ice, not milk. This is the scent of just-crushed fresh fruit, cut bracingly with a chilly freshness.

Guerlain My Insolence
Guerlain My Insolence smells like a cross between an ice cream soda and a flower. It's part the scent of a fruit cobbler, part blossoms from the garden—a tricky blend of warm kitchen smells and a greenhouse.
