Petal to the Metal
Ladylike is overrated -- This fall, floral fragrances are all about the edge.

To walk onto the fragrance floor of any department store in the country is to tramp through a field of flowery, happy perfumes. Marc Jacobs Daisy, Dior J'adore, Estee Lauder Beautiful -- impossibly pretty, they dominate the fragrance counters. "They're familiar to us," says Karen Grant, global beauty industry analyst for the NPD Group, a global information company. "They're what American consumers equate with feminine scents." But recently, for some women, the idea of smelling conventionally girly had started to feel a touch too innocent. It was time for something new.

Floral - In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, almost all perfumes were florals. Like real flowers, there's a huge range, and they're prone to intermarrying with other families, which is why you'll hear about "floral greens" and "florientals."

Estee Lauder Beautiful: Dreamy and pure, it contains notes from more than 1,000 flowers, including rose, lily, tuberose, marigold, muguet, and jasmine.
