Tres Chic - Chanel No. 5 may be the most iconic fragrance in the world, but one detail flies below the radar: The cap's shape mirrors the Place Vendome. (This citrus version - the fifth No.5 - is the lightest.)

Modern & Chic - Women who appreciate menswear details married with unexpected proportions and strong silhouettes should explore fragrances in what perfumer Ilias Ermenidis calls the "blurred lines" category. "I could wear them, my wife could wear them - they are more rogue and abstract," he says. They're fresh and clean yet not overly masculine as in a sporty cologne. And they typically share lush ingredients; orange blossom, violet leaf, and lily appear frequently. But it's the addition of more unusual essences - edamame, ambergris, basil, blueberry - that makes them interesting and a bit chameleon-like. "You can get the impression of something oceanic, citrusy, or herbal," adds [perfumer David Seth] Moltz.
