For evenings out on the town:
Première by GUCCI ($87)
Inspired by the beautiful gowns from the Gucci Première couture collection show at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, this collection celebrates the star and beauty in every woman.

LANCÔME La vie est belle ($78)
Leave a lasting impression with Lancome’s La vie est belle, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance. Notes of delicate iris mixes with the strength of patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend for a depth and complex scent.
For the office:
Prada Infusion d’Iris ($90)
Prada’s new fragrance for the modern woman evokes the ultimate in timeless luxury. Floral citrus notes of orange blossom, iris, and mandarin blend with vetiver and incense for a light and elusive essence that’s perfect for the workplace without being overpowering.
