What would the Katrina and the Waves hit single "Walkin' on Sunshine" smell like when translated into perfume form? According to Kate Spade, heavy on florals like magnolia and lily, with a burst of clementine.
Mugler Alien Eau Sublime
She's not a regular mom, she's a cool mom, and cool moms deserve equally cool fragrances. What's cooler than Mugler's space-age architectural bottle? The fruity-floral blend housed inside, which has the freshest mandarin note we've ever smelled in our lives—second to actually picking the fruit from the tree, of course.
