Harajuku Lovers Love by Gwen Stefani

Harajuku Lovers Love Perfume by Gwen Stefani
Amazon.com

We've come to count on Gwen Stefani for her kooky fashion style. Love perfume is Gwen's playful take on floral, combining peony, rose and jasmine with fresh Oriental peach and bamboo. Woody and musky notes round out the scent, which develops from girly to something more grown-up after a few hours on the skin. Great for outdoor games and après-ski canoodling.
