Alien 10th Anniversary Talisman Eau de Parfum Limited Edition
Although this is the same beloved amber-woody-floral fragrance, we had to include it for its limited edition Talisman bottle (in a spectacular amethyst-hue, we might add).
40 mL, $98 at Hudson’s Bay
Miu Miu Eau de Parfum
As it should, the first fragrance from the Italian design house embodies the contradictory Miu Miu women: intelligently frivolous, fearlessly fun, seriously light-hearted, feminine feminists. Soft, floral top notes of lily of the valley, jasmine and rose are set against a deep, earthy base of Akigalawood, an extract of patchouli.
50 mL, $95; 100 mL, $135 at Holt Renfrew
Tory Burch Absolu
This variation of the designer’s signature scent is bolder and more sophisticated. Vibrant top notes of black currant buds, pink pepper and lily of the valley lead to a heart of florals (rose, tuberose and jasmine sambac). The base offers intense refinement with a balance of earthy sandalwood, vetiver and cedarwood with warm vanilla.
1.7 oz, $100; 3.4 oz, $130 at Sephora and Tory Burch
