Thierry Mugler, the maker of the iconic Angel and Alien perfumes, will introduce Womanity in July, a scent that the New York Times described as "a commingling of figs and caviar, a sweet-salty combination as treacly as a chocolate-covered pretzel." Prices range from $58 to $98.

Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston is introducing her first fragrance, Lolavie. Set to go on sale exclusively at London's Harrods department store this June, Lolavie will become available in other countries such as the US later in the year, priced from $46.50. According to the actress, her scent will be "sexy and clean" and "floral, but not too flowery" - a discreet "nonperfume perfume."
