Once More, With Feeling Our fave fragrance lines get happy updates.

The one who said that if it ain't broke, don't fix it, clearly wasn't from the industry—we know one of the good things about beauty is all the mini-upgrades we get from season to season to our most beloved products. Classics are such for a reason, but keeping in step with the latest runway trends, scientific breakthroughs and other innovations is also a must in staying relevant and consumer-friendly. It's the tweaks that keep things fabulous!

First of the two on our radar is a zippy twist on DKNY's best-selling Be Delicious Eau de Parfum. The new Delicious Art limited edition, the second of the Be Delicious Art Series (the first was released in late '08) now gets a pop art, Roy Lichtenstein-y twist via the genius of NYC comic-art god Brad Hamann, with the bottle, model and its iconic apple logo all rendered in ben-day dots and speech bubbles. The scent remains the same, though, in all its fruity, refreshing glory, but enlivened and made even more appealing to the modern urban woman by, ironically, a genre that gained popularity as a form of art rebellion during the mod movement of the '50s and '60s.

If you're more for chic than camp, Estée Lauder's newest fragrance, Sensuous, is anything but an old thing in new clothing: actually a revolutionary scent for the label famous for it's crisp and ultra-femme scents, it's in a whole new fragrance category of its own: woody amber. While other scents in similar families may be considered too harsh, Sensuous nixes all masculine connotations with its warm, creamy and super sexy notes that manifest differently on each woman, further highlighting her individual sensuality (yes, hence the name). It also has a mix of what the brand calls “atmospheric florals,” like jasmine, lily, magnolia and ylang-ylang, and with gourmand faves like honey and juicy mandarin rounding out the scent, the results are sleek and very, very feminine—a true day-to-nighter.

Variety is the spice of life, and it's the little details that make fragrances so fun to wear—so step out of your zone and come play!

DKNY Be Delicious The Delicious Art Limited Edition Eau de Parfum, P4200 for 100ml and P3100 for 50ml, at Rustan's, and Estée Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum, P4950 for 100ml and P3250 for 50ml, at department stores.
