Krigler, the old-school fragrance brand beloved by the elite European jet set for decades, has just launched Eau de Parfum #67, an aromatic, spring-fresh citrus scent with notes of lemon, mandarin grapefruit, sage ,and lavender. The soft scent gives off an invigorating, fruity but not-too-sweet vibe that works well for mornings and late, breezy afternoons. Happy and uplifting, Louis Vuitton's newest fragrancewhich launched this month has managed to capture the whimsical scents and feels of a sunny day at the beach, utilizing an array of yuzu and neroli notes balanced with hints of citrus as well as more profound floral backdrops. Multimedia artist Alex Israel designed the bottle and packagingwith the local beaches of his hometown in Los Angeles as his inspiration.

Giving off chic Malibu vibes with its light scent, Windows Down reminds you of all the women who look fabulous effortlessly, using simplicity and good taste. Henry Rose's latest fragrancelaunched this monthutilizes soft notes of grapefruit, bergamot, and a hint of Earl Grey tea for a casual yet graceful perfume. This works as a versatile fragrance from day well into those summer nights.

This newly launched scent certainly lives up to its namesakewith visions of carousing up and down the Italian Riviera being called to mind immediately upon application. Simply put, it's an alluring, light, and clean scent; it won't overwhelm the room you walk into. Instead, it lingers nicely on the skin in a gentle manner.

If cashmere had a signature scent, this sweet but not all-over-the-place scent would be it. Launched earlier this spring, it's calm and surprisingly sophisticated for a fragrance on the sugary side with subtle notes of pink pepper, dark rum, and a luxuriously refined overall scent. Launched this spring, fashion designer Pamella Roland's first foray into fragrance is a sweet scent inspired by her grandmother's rose garden. The floral notes are as strong as the candied tones, to give an overall cheery, and upbeat scent. Celebrated perfumer Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Aqua Celestia cologne forte is one of three newly launched scents this May. All fresh and unique, Aqua Celestia stands out with citrusy and fragrant floral base notes using bergamot, black currant, Egyptian jasmine, and French mimosa which give a light citrus scent that denotes a cheery, happy impression.

Sexy, light, and musky, Tom Ford's Tubreuse Nue is the latest scent debuting from his Private Blend Fragrance line. The base of the fragrance is the Tuberose flower, which historically has earned the sobriquet Mistress of the Night since it requires nocturnal pollinators in order to bloom. Floral scents of Jasmine are blended with hints of pepper and patchouli to give the scent an edge at the very end. This fragrance is best suited for sexy evenings out. Tubreuse Nue launches Feb. 1; $350 for 50 ml, sephora.com.

Fresh with floral and citrus tones, this limited-edition fragrance by Aerin is a twist on their best-selling Mediterranean Honeysuckle. Using vibrant tones of Honeysuckle, Tuberose and Miel de Provence (yes, honeybut it's not overly sweet) the result is a clean and tasteful fragrance that works day, night, and frankly all year, regardless of the season. $135, nordstrom.com.
