Beauty: Flower Power

April 4 2012, 4:00 PM

Catwalks and denim aren't the only things sporting botanical themes this season; beauty companies have also picked up on the floral trend. Featured in everything from single-note fragrances to special packaging to bright pink and red shades for lips, cheeks, and nails, these cheerful garden varieties are making spring a very feminine season. So, whether it's roses, peonies, orchids, or the lotus flower, floral-based scents and colors are this season's "it" style. Here are a few favorites:

The queen of flowers—the rose—shows off both its sultry and sweet sides with  Diptyque’s roll-on Eau Rose fragrance (pictured right), which unveils different layers of scent throughout the day. Plus, the compact size is perfect for travel.
