  1. 1/12

    Estee Lauder Modern Muse ($78, esteelauder.com)

    Jasmine is the star of this delightfully woodsy concoction, with tuberose and lily as supporting players.

  2. 2/12

    Armani Prive Rose D’Arabie ($275, giorgioarmanibeauty.com)

    When laced with violet and patchouli, rose sheds its polite and innocent reputation, turning deep and heady.

  3. 3/12

    Dolce & Gabbana Intense ($112, saks.com, available in October)

    White flowers and orange blossom meet sandalwood and musk in this creamy floral-oriental.

  4. 4/12

    Calvin Klein Downtown ($80, macys.com)

    Neroli and plum are tempered with the slightest hint of powdery violet leaf.

  5. 5/12

    Elizabeth Arden Untold ($79, elizabetharden.com)

    A warm base of patchouli and amber anchors bright gardenia and jasmine.

  6. 6/12

    Boss Jour by Hugo Boss ($78, hugoboss.com)

    When grapefruit and lime mix with freesia, lily of the valley, and honeysuckle, the result smells like sunshine in a bottle.

  7. 7/12

    Jimmy Choo Exotic ($88, nordstrom.com)

    This sexy, sweet scent starts out with a blast of black currant, followed by notes of orchid and grapefruit.

  8. 8/12

    Byredo 1996 ($145, byredo.com)

    Perfumer Ben Gorham created this fragrance with the photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin as a gift for friends. The raves over the icy mix of juniper berries, iris, and violet led Gorham to add it to his line.

  9. 9/12

    Carven le parfum ($109, saks.com)

    The French fashion house’s first scent in decades delicately weaves together sweet pea, hyacinth, and jasmine.

  10. 10/12
  11. 11/12

    Tom Ford Fleur de Chine ($210, neimanmarcus.com)

    Star magnolia, hyacinth, and bergamot get a slightly powdery twist from jasmine tea, plum, and Chinese cedar.
