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

Addictive Blends
Another way to add kick: opulent, edible notes, which give these florals an "addictive, narcotic" quality, says Dora Baghriche-Arnaud. ... "We have an expression for this type of scent. It's called fleurs á manger - it means 'flowers to eat.'" These scents are having a huge moment right now, she says.

Sky Ferreira
What does it take for an international pop star to overcome stage fright? (Hint: It smells like jasmine)

Ferreira is the face of Jimmy Choo's latest scent.
"The heart of the perfume is jasmine and rose, but not, like, sitting-on-a-bed-of-roses girly. It's sophisticated, like a pair of Jimmy Choos." --Sky Ferreira

Jimmy Choo Illicit Eau de Parfum, $112; nordstrom.com

In Her Own Words -- "I may be a musician, but I have severe stage fright. And I have to go through a whole process before I perform. ...if I'm getting ready fir a big night... I'll put on perfume because it makes me feel as if I didn't just roll out of bed. It finished the look. The new Jimmy Choo Illicit is feminine by not necessarily too girly -- and it has jasmine, which is my favorite flower. But I think I like it because it relates to my music. My sound is aggressive, but it's a bit sexy, too, and it has a vulnerable side to it. And when I'm onstage, that's what it feels like. It's a very vulnerable position to be in." --Sky Ferreira
