2014 Best Fragrances


No offense to the department-store counters we’ve frequented in the past, but our new fragrance go-to is a little less—how shall we say—in your face. Fresh skips the dizzying array of scents for a dozen or so intriguing, beautifully blended perfumes. Our favorite? “Hesperides,” an intoxicating mix of grapefruit, bergamot, rhubarb, and jasmine.
