Here are the nine new amazing scents we just can't get enough of:
Ralph Lauren Big Pony Collection ($70 at Ralph Lauren): Already a longstanding best-seller among men, Ralph Lauren trotted out the iconic four-piece set for women this year. Each scent is based on a different facet of the modern gal—#1 sporty, #2 sensual, #3 free-spirited, and #4 stylish—and contains playful mix of floral and citrus notes.
Burberry Body Mist ($50 at Burberry): We were obsessed with eau de toilette when it launched last August, and when the lighter, fresher body mist hit stores this spring, we fell head-over-heels all over again. With top notes of green apple and peach, it's ripe for the picking, and a slight hint of tea and creamy vanilla make it all the more soothing yet sultry. We say, if Rosie Huntington-Whiteley endorses it, that's all we need to know, right?
Justin Bieber Girlfriend ($49 at Sephora): Sigh... we can't be the Biebs' GF, but hey, at least we can smell like her! The lady of his dreams apparently exudes a come-hither aroma of sparkling pear, crisp mandarin, rich blackberry, and pink freesia (to name a few). And judging by looks, his mate likes slinkies. Seriously, could that bottle be any cooler?
Viva La Juicy Fleur ($90 at department stores): If you're already a fan of the brand's original Viva La Juicy, you're sure to love it's flirty, floral sister. Bedecked with Juicy Couture's trademark pink bow, the fragrance features a sheer veil of sparkling mandarin, wild berries, honeysuckle, gardenia, and soft jasmine.
Vera Wang Princess Night ($60 at Macy's): Some nights you just want to feel like a princess—and that's where the wedding-dress-queen-turned-perfumist grants your wish. Complete with a glitzed-out bottle and jeweled-crown cap, Princess Night is an exotic blend of woodsy and floral scents with top notes of sweet wild berries, watermelon, and raspberry.
Madonna Truth or Dare ($55 at Macy's): As to be expected, Madonna in a bottle screams sex appeal. Defined by a sensual reinvention of classic white floral, plus a touch of woods and vanilla, Truth or Dare strikes the perfect balance of sophisticated and sexy—meaning you can wear it to dinner with mom, and then go home to your guy. We dare you to try.
Selena Gomez ($55 at Macy's): We were just kidding earlier, here is the real way to smell like J-Biebs' main squeeze. Chocoholics will die for this self-titled fragrance. Like a tasty treat for your sense of smell, when top notes of raspberry, peach, and pineapple break down, a delectable base of chocolate, vanilla, and amber emerges. In other words, it's sweet enough to eat.
Bulgari Omnia Coral ($80 at department stores): Bulgari's Omnia Coral makes us want to jump ship and head out for some surf and sand. Inspired by the sun, nature, and sea, the tropic-worthy fragrance bursts full of vibrant bergamot, Goji berries, hibiscus flower, water lily, pomegranate, and cedar wood. Vacay, here we come.
Roberto Cavalli ($85 at department stores): Highly addictive (just like his Twitter page) and purely-radiant (just like his designs), this seductive scent wraps you in luxury with each and every spritz. How so? With a bold aroma of ambery floral, pink peppercorn, orange flower, and tonka bean.
