With so many new perfumes on the market this holiday season, it's daunting to decide which will be your new signature scent. But not to worry! I'm compiled a list of all-time classics and brand-new favorites from our most-loved designers, and there's bound to be a perfect perfume to take you from the turkey at Thanksgiving to your New Year's Eve kiss and beyond.
1 My Burberry Festive
Inspired by a London garden after the rain, this brand-new scent is light and floral enough to wear into spring.
2 Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba
This bold,energetic perfume is named for, and inspired by, the exotic Paraiba tourmaline.
3 Michael Kors Coral
This scent is fresh, warm, and oh-so-feminine.
4 Commodity Magnolia
I know it sounds odd to suggest a light, airy, fresh scent for winter, but Magnolia is so lovely, it'll remind you of new-fallen snow, made for your White Christmas.
5 TOM FORD Black Orchid Eau De Toilette
In two words: sexy and inviting.
6 Versace Bright Crystal
This is another light, but very warm, new scent.

Is there anything warmer and cozier than cashmere?

10 Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black
This is a scent you and your man can wear. It's so versatile, and it smells a little different, depending on who's wearing it.

This scent is like a mini holiday somewhere war, lush, and green.
12 Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Digital Art Limited Edition
The same Spicebomb you already love, in a new limited-edition bottle.

It's light enough to wear during the day (think office) but warm and sensual enough for after-work fun (think office party).
14 AERIN Ikat Jasmine
The bottle is plain, but the scent is marvelously complex: feminine, floral, flirty.

I've heard this scent described as "mysterious" and that sums it up perfectly.
