Michelle Lee On Allure Magazine

By: Donna Freydkin

Summer sure smells sweet. Especially with six of our must-have fragrances. Some are new. Some are classics. All are covetable (and for extra beauty oomph, watch our interview "Allure" editor in chief Michelle Lee).

Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming: It's the newest launch from this incredible line, with notes of peony and musk.

Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence: The packaging alone will shut it down. And we love the notes of champagne extract, orange blossom, hydrangea, honeysuckle, saffron and vanilla.

TOM FORD: We have nothing but the deepest respect for Ford, whose "Nocturnal Animals" will be out this winter. But meanwhile, drench yourself in hints of black orchid, vanilla, chestnut, and patchouli.

MAISON MARGIELA' REPLICA Jazz Club: This collection is a major hit, for good reason. It's cool, it's edgy and it smells scintillating. This one has traces of pink pepper, lemon, neroli, rum, clary sage oil and tobacco leaf. Oh and vanilla.

L'Occitane Verbena Harvest: Fresh and summery, this concoction transports you right to Provence.

CHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE Touche de Parfum: This limited edition launch comes with a sculpted applicator wand that allows for precise touch-ups. How very Chanel.

And a few more of our faves:

Sisley Paris Eau du Soir: One of our all-time favorite skincare brands has the perfume to match. It's a heady mix of flowers, spice and chypre.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian À la rose: Delicate and refined, with top notes of Bulgarian rose, Calabrian bergamot and California oranges.

Tata Harper Love Potion: No biggie here, just a gorgeous blend of 10 of the world's most potent aphrodisiacal essential oils.

Rare Tom Ford show
When Tom Ford learned his upcoming London Fashion Week runway show was scheduled for the day after Hollywood's Oscars night, where celebrity fashion on the red carpet is closely watched, he made a quick decision to make sure all eyes were on him. Instead, the American-born, London-based designer opted to present his fall/winter 2015 collection to a star-studded front row at Milk Studios in the heart of Hollywood on Friday evening, two days before the Oscars ceremony.
