STYLE FRAGRANCE Gone are the days of committing yourself to a single signature scent. Like your closet—filled with wardrobe basics, but transformed each season with on-trend pieces—your fragrances should be a means of self- expression. Each one reflects a day's particular mood. "Fragrance and fashion are historically linked," says legendary perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. "I do believe that one should have a fragrance wardrobe, a mix of ageless classics and fashionable trends." Kelly St. John, VP of beauty at Neiman Marcus, agrees: "A fragrance wardrobe is expected and encouraged, allowing our customers to select something that fits the day's inspira- tion." It's only fitting, then, that two of the season's strongest fashion looks—chic athleisure with a vintage twist and sultry, romantic florals—pair so seamlessly with some of today's boldest scents.

THIS YEAR'S HOTTEST RUNWAY TRENDS BLEND PERFECTLY WITH THE SEASON'S MOST INTOXICATING EAUX. BY CHRISTINA CLEMENTE GAME, SET, EAU! ATHLEISURE HAS FOUND ITS MATCH IN FRESH, CITRUSY SCENTS. When sporting designs from Max Mara or Lacoste's Spring 2017 vintage and tennis-inspired collections, up your game with clean fragrances that boast notes of energizing citrus. Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian blended lime and cool mint oils with mimosa blossoms to create Aqua Celestia for his eponymous collection. Inspired by the blues of the sky and sea, the scent "explores a new territory of freshness," says Kurkdjian. Hermès's Eau des Merveilles Bleue touches on the same theme but mixes sea spray with woody notes, and Elizabeth Arden's White Tea blends a sea breeze accord with white tea extract. It's all about Italian bergamot with Guerlain's vibrant Bergamote Calabria, while perfumer Daniela Andrier also used citruses from Italy when creating Prada's Candy L'eau, but she added a tender floral accord with sweet vanilla for a fragrance that inspires wearers, she says, "to seek out life's endless pleasures." clockwise from top: Prada Candy L'Eau, Prada (2.7 oz. for $96).
